5 Skin Supplements You Could Use To Make Your Skin Glow
Skin supplements are the rave of the moment. More beauty brands are dishing out their versions of beauty you can swallow and it’s a bit overwhelming. How do you know which ones to buy? Which ones do you need? Are they even necessary?
Well, like the name suggests, these skin supplements aren’t meant to replace, but rather accompany your current vitamins. Skin supplements are specific to the skin and are in no way meant to substitute vitamins meant for your entire body. But does this mean you don’t need them?
Every organ in our body has a need, and we must try to meet them. Our skin needs specific vitamins to ensure its health and longevity. That’s where these supplements come in. Vitamins like biotin, vitamins A, C & E all work to give the skin all it needs at every point in time. But it is our job to find out which ones work and which ones are better left on the shelf. Some vitamins, when not applied topically, cannot make it to the skin and end up not being effective. And some can.
Here are 5 you definitely want to consider.
Biotin has been a constant in skincare products for a long time. Its benefits include promoting healthy nail growth as well as hair maintenance.
Collagen is by far the most popular skin supplement in the beauty industry today. It helps keep sagging at bay but does not aid youthful skin or promote firmness (sadly).
This is a wonder vitamin with tons of benefits. It aids in the healing of eczema, sunburns, and acne and promotes collagen and cell regeneration. However, it is important to note that you should not ingest too much. An overdose of vitamin A could spell disaster for your health.
You may have already guessed this one. Apart from its skin brightening and anti-aging properties, this vitamin can also boost the skin’s barrier and protect it from UV rays.
We’re sure we aren’t the only ones whose parent’s have bottles of this. lol! But they might be on to something. Fish oil actually works wonders for the skin. The fish oil helps to hydrate the skin and is rumored to remedy acne.
There are tons of skin supplements out there just waiting for you. But we recommend starting with these 5 and working your way up. Please remember to always research any supplement before ingesting and speak to your doctor for advice on which to take.
