3 Types of Supplements for Skin Health

We can protect what\’s on the outside by ramping up what we take in on the inside. Stay radiant with skin-supporting supplements and minerals.

Our skin takes a lot of hammer. Exposure to the elements, aging, and daily wear and tear can all take a toll. Give your largest and most underrated organ some TLC with these supplements for great skin health.


Clever antioxidants work by ramping up your skin’s natural repair system and acting as a barrier between your skin and extra harm.

Vitamin A is also known as retinol and is important for cell growth, which makes it a good antiaging tool when used topically. It is also a good acne treatment and can be used topically and orally for this purpose. Care should be taken before using vitamin A supplements, and you should consult a natural health care practitioner before beginning treatment.

Vitamin E can be useful in treating aging skin and sunburn. Topical use can have an antiaging effect and can help protect against skin damage after chemotherapy.

Although you may more commonly reach for the vitamin C when you feel a cold coming on, its antioxidant properties also make it useful for acne and other skin infections.

B vitamins

B-complex vitamins help the body convert carbs into energy and are also essential for healthy liver, hair, and you guessed it, skin. The Bs are great for fighting off dry, itchy skin conditions and can help with sun protection when applied topically.


Omega-3 and omega-6 offer a smorgasbord of skin health benefits. These fatty acids play an integral role in skin’s function and appearance and are key in skin’s inflammatory reaction, so eating foods that are rich in omega-3 and omega-6 may be useful for treating conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis. They can also be helpful in making skin more resistant to sun damage. (But, in the words of Baz Luhrmann, “Always wear sunscreen!”)
