Supplements & Skin Health
Updated: Oct 4
Okay, here's the truth- there’s only SO much topical skincare can do. You could have the best of best 5 star skincare regimen paired with the unhealthiest of diets and the result is skin far from glowing. Trust me, I’ve been there!
I like to think of my skin as a reflection of my internal health. I see it as an internal mirror telling me what I need to change, address or limit.
Have I been drinking too much alcohol? (YES, quarantine made me.)
Have I been consuming a healthy diet?
Am I eating enough vegetables?
Are my hormones balanced?
Is it the time of the month?
Have I been indulging in sugar? dairy?
Am I drinking enough water?
These are all the questions I ask myself when my skin is so clearly unhappy. While I am not a nutritionist, I do know that skin issues often stem from not getting enough nutrients. Sometimes skin needs an extra boost- that’s where supplements come in. Essential vitamins and mineral intake provide the body + skin with extra care from the inside out.
*Additions to a healthy diet not replace of.*
Here’s what I take and how they benefit the skin-
Good for anti aging, hair, skin, nails, eye health, immune system.
Antioxidant that maintains balance of oil and moisture levels within the skin making it ideal for all skin types- from aging to occasional breakouts! Vitamin A encourages normal cell production and stimulates fibroblasts deep in the dermal layer of skin.
Good for acne, and gut health.
If your digestive system is not healthy/in a funk, the integumentary system aka your skin is affected. Probiotics contain microorganisms that help protect gut lining. Healthy GUT= Healthy SKIN.
Good for smooth skin, acne, allergies, inflammation.
Inflammatory skin conditions like acne or psoriasis indicate internal inflammation. Omega 3 is high in essential fatty acids which help repair the skin barrier and improve skin texture.
Good for dry skin, protection.
Helps in skin cell growth, repair, and metabolism as well as prevents skin aging. Vitamin D protects the skin. However, too much sun can lead to accelerated skin aging.
Good for acne, redness, inflammation, irritation.
Skin conditions like rosacea, acne, seborrheic dermatitis, melasma, and eczema can all benefit from zinc. Zinc helps skin heal after an injury.
Good for repair, correct, protect.
neutralize the damage free radicals cause and help protect the collagen in skin from oxidative stress, UV damage.
