Beauty Supplements: Looking Good This Valentine's Day
Beauty supplements are the next big thing in skincare. They focus on enhancing your skin on the outside from the inside. And with the holiday of romance nearing, many of us want to look our best. Look no further than NutriLife's beauty supplements!
What are the benefits of taking beauty supplements?
Our skin is a reflection of what is happening inside our body, most importantly, inside our digestive system. Studies have shown that an unhealthy gut can significantly impair not only your overall health, but your skin as well! You may see an increase in breakouts, dry skin, inflammation and even atopic dermatitis.
Beauty supplements can assist in giving your body a boost of nutrition. Supplementing with skin-loving nutrients and vitamins help support a healthy skin barrier and healthy skin microbiome to increase resilience against environmental aggressors.
Common ingredients to look for in beauty supplements
Collagen is an essential component in our bones, skin, muscles and other body parts. It plays an important role in strengthening skin, synthesizing elastin fibers and hydration.
As our bodies are not able to make or store this essential trace mineral, we need to get our zinc intake through food or supplement form. Zinc is anti-inflammatory and is common in beauty supplements targeting acne and oily skin. They help reduce acne by regulating oil production in the skin and reducing redness.
Carotenoids are plant-derived and can only be consumed, with the most notable of the carotenoid family being beta-carotein or lycopene.
Lycopene works to protect skin against UV damage and hyperpigmentation while milk thistle is included to flush toxins from the liver for clear, smooth skin. Best suited for those experiencing uneven skin tone, dull and dehydrated skin.
Vitamin E protects skin cells from free radicals while starflower oil and evening primrose oil nourishes skin from within and helps maintain elasticity. Best suited for dry or dehydrated skin.
Patented bioaminoee and vitamin A stimulates cell renewal for radiant, youthful skin, while collagen and hyaluronic acid reduces wrinkles and fine lines and replenishes skin moisture. Best suited for aging, mature skin.
Zinc, curcumin and piperine regulate sebum production and reduce oil for fresh, matte skin, while vitamin A and B promote skin cell renewal and strengthen skin tissues from within. Best suited for oily, acne-prone skin.
Marine collagen helps increase collagen production in the skin to improve skin elasticity and suppleness, while hyaluronic acid and vitamin E improves hydration to keep skin healthy and glowing. Suitable for all skin types.
