Life is fast-paced and stressful. There are many times when it’s much easier to order a greasy pizza than whipping up a salad full of nutrient-dense veggies. Why spend time juicing up your greens when you can just run on multiple cups of coffee? Alas, your skin is the dashboard of the body. If you’re not getting the proper nutrition, it’s always going to reflect on your skin – if not right away, certainly in the long term. But this is where brilliantly formulated skin-focused supplementation comes to the rescue.
Beautiful skin basics
As a start, you can never go wrong with a good multivitamin supplement such as Health Renewal Multivitamin and Mineral. It includes all the essential vitamins and minerals, many of which are antioxidants vital to your well-being and translate to healthy-looking skin. Vitamin C, for example, helps protects your body’s collagen supply, enhances healing and even boosts your body’s natural sun protection capabilities. Then there’s the inflammation-fighter vitamin E. When taken together, these vitamin “BFFs” will turbo-boost each other’s antioxidant power
A good mix of omega-3-fatty acids is - ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). As EPA and DHA are found mostly in fish, those eating a plant-based diet will struggle to hit their recommended daily allowance. This is why a supplement such as Health Renewal Omega 3 is a must. These fatty acids have remarkable anti-inflammatory properties that can fight the scourge of “inflammageing” – premature ageing caused by chronic low levels of inflammation in the body. Consuming enough Omega-3 fatty acids will also boost your skin’s natural sun protection and hydration levels.
Speaking of acne
If you’re struggling with acne, you’ll definitely want those “basics” we’ve just covered. In addition, the anti-inflammatory action of those omega-3s will be a huge benefit. And yes, you’ll want that multivitamin too – research has found that acne sufferers are typically deficient in vitamins A and E as well as selenium and zinc. Still, you’ll also want to consider a very targeted supplement like Lamelle Acnevelle Plus. It contains niacinamide and zinc that, when taken together, is clinically proven to reduce breakouts. Better yet, this combination can also reduce redness and inflammation while improving the skin’s barrier function.
Another brilliant option for acne-prone skin is Health Renewal Acne Aid 2 in 1. It also contains that winning niacinamide and zinc combo, then goes the extra mile to include selenium and botanical extracts carefully chosen for their potent antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
A bit about pigmentation
Pigmentation sufferers know the sun is enemy number one when it comes to keeping dark marks at bay. While nothing will ever replace the need for sun protection, certain supplements can dramatically improve your skin’s natural resistance to the damage caused by the sun. One is Lamelle Ovelle 3D, clinically proven to reduce the look of hormonal pigmentation by 37% in just 28 days. It contains vitamin D3 and Pycnogenol, a super antioxidant made from pine bark. Ovelle 3D will also help protect your skin’s collagen supply and boost its hyaluronic acid content to improve hydration. What’s not to love?
Another excellent sun protection-enhancer is Heliocare 360. It contains a tropical fern extract scientifically proven to increase your resistance to UV radiation plus antioxidant vitamins C and E.
In short, enjoying clear, radiant skin isn’t just about what you apply topically. If you’re not getting the proper nutrition, there isn’t a serum in the world that can replace the glow of good health, and in this case, it’s also about what’s inside – not just on top!
