Anti-Aging Skin Care: 7 Supplements for Truly Healthy Skin

by

healthy skin

Healthy skin has a radiance that no cosmetic procedure or expensive anti-aging cream can produce. The kind of “natural glow” that shines through imperfections (even wrinkles) can only come about when we focus on creating health from the inside out.

You probably already know that the best ways to achieve or maintain this youthful glow are to stay hydrated, sleep well, de-stress, avoid cigarettes, alcohol and other toxins, and eat a diet consisting of primarily whole, unprocessed foods. But if you want to step up your internal skin care regimen, there are some key anti-aging skin care supplements that can help nourish and protect your skin.

Here are 7 supplements worth including in your anti-aging skin care routine:

1. Omega-3 fatty acids are used in your body to make the oils that help keep your skin moist and supple, and that reduce inflammation and allergy-related eczema. Fish oils are the most concentrated source of omega-3s.

2. MSM is the most concentrated source of organic sulfur available. Sulfur is a component of collagen and contributes to elasticity and smoothness of the skin. Studies have shown that supplemental MSM can promote skin healing.

3. Carotenoids can help protect your skin against sun damage. Beta-carotente, lutein, zeaxanthin and lycopene, are found primarily in red, orange and yellow vegetables. You can also get them in supplement form. It takes at least 10 weeks of supplementation before you build up to sun-protective levels, so it is best to use carotenoids along with sunscreen.

4. Vitamin E helps protect your skin from damage caused by sun exposure. It’s best used as both a vitamin supplement and as a lotion.

5. Vitamin C is used to make collagen, the connective tissue that plumps up the structure underlying your skin. It, too, helps reduce sun damage, used internally or externally.

5. Alpha Lipoic Acid, often referred to as the “universal antioxidant,” is a vital component of any internal anti-aging skin care regimen. It helps to prevent glycation, the process that occurs in the body when sugars bind to protein molecules and cause tissue damage and aging.

6. Biotin, a B vitamin, supports proper cell growth, and plays a critical role in skin, hair and nail health. Many skin-related problems are linked to biotin deficiency.

7. Standardized, high antioxidant berry extracts provide concentrated amounts of ellagic acid, a unique compound shown to fight wrinkles.

  1. MSM is one of the supplements I used more as an anti-inflammatory and because of its cell detoxifying benefits when taken in high doses (3 – 6 g daily). I learned that after several weeks of taking it, my face seemed to have a glow. With it also have no side effects, what can it hurt?

  2. […] ulcers, it can act to fight allergy and improve blood flow to brain. L-carnosine can even help to slow skin aging, minimizing wrinkles and breakdown of skin elasticity, and also may be beneficial in the prevention […]

  4. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab
    inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
