As someone who suffers from Rosacea and the constant challenges of keeping smooth clear skin ongoing trials with various vitamins have yielded good results.
Whether you have skin issues or not there are some supplements that will help anyone achieve a glowing complexion.
When buying nutritional supplements buy the best quality you can afford – stretch the budget. Do without that extra item or fast food each month. Your skin and weight will show the benefit. You will usually not find the best quality on supermarket shelves. Naturopathic quality is ideal.
These are my favourite supplements that have helped Rosacea, breakouts and delivered anti ageing results:
Vitamin C powder with flavonoids: Orthoplex is a good brand that is buffered and should not upset your tummy.
Vitamin E: Look for mixed tocopheryls and tocotrienols for the best results. More expensive and harder to find but worth the effort. Thorne or Dr Vera are 2 brands
Vitamin A drops: Bioceuticals have a good liquid.
IMPORTANT: If you are pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant do not take Vitamin A without speaking with your doctor. Excess Vitamin A can cause birth defects.
Vitamin B: Thorne or Dr Vera are 2 excellent brands
MSM: Excellent quality MSM is available from www.mismo.com.au
Zinc: Capsules are a better option than tablets. Microgenics are available in health food stores.
Essential Fatty Acids: Omega 3 oils are essential. These can be flaxseed (best for Rosacea), fish oil or those products labelled “Omega 3 supplements”
There is plenty of clinical research available to support using the above vitamins and supplements to support skin health.
This combination of Vitamins and supplements strengthens the skin barrier, a very important aspect of controlling Rosacea, Acne and any skin condition.
Blemishes heal faster will less or no scarring. Blemishes are often prevented from occurring by treating from the inside out. Skin will be super soft with a satin sheen.
It goes without saying “fresh is best”.
Fresh vegetables, fruit, lean meat, fish, nuts and eggs with no processed foods will give a beautiful complexion and a trim body.
