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-

𝐕𝐢𝐭𝐚𝐦𝐢𝐧 𝐀:

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.

𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐛𝐢𝐨𝐭𝐢𝐜𝐬:

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.

𝐎𝐦𝐞𝐠𝐚-𝟑:

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.

𝐕𝐢𝐭𝐚𝐦𝐢𝐧 𝐃:

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.

𝐙𝐢𝐧𝐜:

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.

𝐒𝐤𝐢𝐧 𝐀𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐱𝐢𝐝𝐚𝐧𝐭:

Good for repair, correct, protect.

neutralize the damage free radicals cause and help protect the collagen in skin from oxidative stress, UV damage.
