TOPIC: Skin Supplements For Glowing Skin

As an Esthetician I have found out there is more than skincare that you can do to have glowing, beautiful skin. One of the first steps you can do is to eat right and take skin supplements to help make your skin glow from within. There are two supplements that I highly recommend. I have been taking them for years and I would definitively say that these two supplements help keep skin looking younger and glowing. 

The first supplement is Biotin. Biotin, also known as Vitamin H, comes from the Greek word biotos, meaning life. B vitamins and especially Biotin, help keep your skin, hair, eyes, liver and nervous system healthy. Biotin is also a crucial nutrient during pregnancy as it is important for embryonic growth. Biotin does help hair grow faster, nails grow longer but NOT stronger if you hear those claims. And yes, it make the skin look better. It helps boosts skin's health. However, people with biotin deficiencies may experience skin problems, including red, scaly rashes. Some people also believe that biotin may help improve psoriasis. The vitamin's influence on the skin may stem from its effect on fat metabolism. I take biotin religiously. I have noticed that it gives my hair a silky appearance and helps it grow longer, faster. Personally, I like the supplement from Nature's Bounty Hair, Skin & Nails Gummies which is sold through Amazon.com for $12.26 for a 2 month supply (but currently has a $3.95 coupon). These gummies contain the following per 2 gummy serving:  
  • Vitamin C 15 mg 17% DV
  • Vitamin E 6.7 mg 45% DV
  • Biotin 2,500 mcg 8,333%
  • Sodium 10mg <1% DV

The serving size is two gummies per day and there are enough gummies (140) to last at least 2 months in the bottle, actually to last for about 70 days. The addition of the Vitamins C &  E are antioxidants, which are always great for the skin. These gummies have a wonderful strawberry taste that makes you want to eat more than just two. 

The second supplement I recommend is collagen. It can be marine collagen if you prefer. Collagen is one of the protein building blocks of skin, along with elastin. Collagen starts to break down as we age and needs to be replenished or skin will develop fine lines and wrinkles. Taking it as a supplement helps to replenish some of the collagen our skin loses as we age, thus it prevents aging of the skin. It actually promotes collagen growth. Collagen is also good for the joints, hair and nails too. The supplement I recommend is also available from Amazon.com or Neocell.com and is called Neocell Marine Collagen, with Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, Magnesium, B6, B12, Zinc, and Protein. It comes in 120 count bottle for $16.05 with a $1.02 off coupon. The serving size is 4 capsules which contain the following:
  • Fish Collagen 4000 mg
  • Natural Hyaluronic Acid 20 mg
  • Vitamin C 40 mg 66% DV
  • Copper 1.32 mg 66% DV
  • Zinc 3.32mg 22% DV
  • Silicon 13.2 mg
  • Magnesium 132 mg 33% DV
  • Vitamin B12 0.4mcg 6.6% DV
  • Vitamin B6 1.32mg 66% DV
The great thing about adding collagen to your diet is that it helps stimulate collagen production in the body, and since it is one of the building blocks of skin, that means your skin will look better than ever before. I would advise you to start taking it ASAP or before you even notice that you have any issues with fine lines and wrinkles. Collagen will help to support your skin and keep it looking better than ever. Nails will be harder than ever and hair will look shinier than ever before too. Collagen also helps hydration and elasticity. The hyaluronic acid in the supplement will add hydration in the skin too, as it is a humectant that attracts water to the body and lubricates it. The Vitamins and minerals included in the supplement are those that are essential for good skin, the nervous system and a good body in general. Zinc helps with acne and the rest are antioxidants that keep free radicals away.

If you don't want to take marine collagen, NEOCELL offers other collagen supplements that are available through their website or through Amazon.com that are also very good. NEOCELL is the leader when it comes to collagen supplements. Any other Biotin supplement would also work too, this is just my favorite one. In addition to a good skincare regimen, these are the two supplements that I would recommend trying out and adding to your skincare regimen, trying out for a couple of months and you will definitely notice the difference in your skin. Trust me on this. 

Until Next Time~
