Improving skin isn’t just about professional treatments and home prescriptives. It’s also about what we put in our body too. While Im a huge fan of getting vitamins and nutrients from the food we eat with busy schedules and living a fast paced life with children, sometimes implementing supplements can make a huge difference to our mind, body and skin. 

Here are the top eleven supplements that can make a difference in your skin. 

  • Vitamin C: Vitamin C is an antioxidant that supports collagen production, which is essential for maintaining skin elasticity and preventing signs of aging.
  • Vitamin E: Another antioxidant, vitamin E helps protect skin cells from damage caused by free radicals. It also supports skin health by promoting moisture retention.
  • Vitamin A: Vitamin A is important for skin cell production and repair. It’s often used in skincare products to address issues like acne and signs of aging.
  • Omega-3 Fatty Acids: These healthy fats help maintain the skin’s lipid barrier, which keeps moisture in and irritants out. Omega-3s also have anti-inflammatory properties that can benefit skin health.
  • Collagen Supplements: Collagen is a protein that plays a role in skin structure. Some studies suggest that collagen supplements might improve skin elasticity and hydration.
  • Zinc: Zinc is involved in the production of new skin cells and has anti-inflammatory properties. It’s often recommended for people with acne-prone skin.
  • Selenium: Selenium is an antioxidant that helps protect the skin from oxidative stress and supports skin health.
  • Hyaluronic Acid: While often used in topical skincare products, hyaluronic acid supplements might help retain skin moisture and improve its overall appearance.
  • Biotin: Biotin, also known as vitamin H, is important for healthy skin, hair, and nails. This is not a good option for those who have acne prone skin. 
  • Probiotics is the crux of of gut-brain-skin axis. Probiotics can influence the gut microbiota which in turn may impact inflation and immune responses throughout the body including the skin. 
  • Fiber believe it or not is incredibly important to the skin as it helps to detox the body, increase nutrient absorption, reduce inflammation and improve gut health. 

As a reminder, It is always best to consult with a primary care physician about supplements to make sure they don’t negatively interact with medical conditions or prescribed medication.
