Beauty supplements are basically nutritional supplements with specific nutrients that can be good for reducing inflammation and supporting the health of your skin’s tissues. Afterall, healthy skin is the most beautiful looking skin.
Here are five reasons why a beauty supplement might be the perfect addition to your morning beauty routine.
1. Your skincare products can only penetrate so deeply
When you apply vitamin and antioxidant serums to your skin, they can help boost collagen, soothe redness, regulate moisture and a wealth of other benefits, depending on the active ingredients you use.
The nutrients in your skincare
, however, can only penetrate the epidermal layer of skin, which is about 0.2 mm thick. Any deeper layers of skin get their nutrition from internal blood circulation.
Don’t let this fact discourage you, a good skincare routine can still have visible results for the epidermal layer of your skin, but it takes a nutritious diet, healthy lifestyle and some professional treatments to improve the deeper layers of your skin.
2. Nutrition from circulation slows down as we get older
As mentioned above, the deeper layers of your skin get their nutrients from blood circulation. As we get older, blood circulation slows down and your skin misses out. Over time, this can contribute to reduced collagen production, thinner or duller looking skin and other signs of ageing.
Nutritional supplements can help boost the overall nutrition that your blood carries to your skin and other organs through circulation.
3. Beautiful skin comes from within
The link between gut health and skin has become clearer and more widely accepted in medical circles as the body of evidence has grown.
In simple terms, your gut has both “good” and “bad” bacteria. Foods that are high in sugar, or low GI foods (such as pasta or white read) can feed bad bacteria and cause gut inflammation. When the gut is inflamed, it leads to inflammation in the skin. Unhealthy gut bacteria can especially influence flare ups of acne, redness and rosacea.
Fibre, probiotics and prebiotics in nutritional supplements can help support the good bacteria that keep your gut (and therefore your skin) healthy.
4. What’s good for your skin is good for your body
Our SuperShot Supplement is packed with vitamins, antioxidants and probiotic fibres to boost overall nutrition and wellbeing.
This includes carefully curated sources of Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Vitamin K, which help with repair of tissues in the skin and throughout the body.
Antioxidants help stave off free radical damage caused by oxidative stress.
Oxidative stress doesn’t just lead to external ageing, it can accumulate on your internal tissues as well, which is why it’s important to have a diet that is high in antioxidants as well as your antioxidant skincare.
Probiotic fibres can help promote healthy gut bacteria which can help improve digestion and reduce overall inflammation. Probiotics that are good for your gut are good for your skin, but this works the other way too!
No to mention, a glass of water with a little nutritional boost is a great way to start the day!
