3 Healthy Skin Supplements You Should Know About

healthy skinYour skin is the largest organ in your body—did you know you have nearly 22 square feet of it? While scrubs, polishes, moisturizers, and spa treatment can help your skin from the outside, nourishing your body from the inside is one of the best ways to help it look its best.

A healthy, balanced diet, lots of water, exercise, and regular sleep patterns are some of the best things you can do for your skin. However, sometimes life gets in the way and your diet regimen takes a backseat to quick, convenient sustenance meals. Your skin can start to reflect your poor dietary choices and look sallow, blotchy, or tired. Deficiencies in omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and many minerals can show up in your complexion.


Skin Complete for Total Skin Health

Jane Iredale’s Skin Complete is a duo pack of the brand’s Skin Vitamin A and Skin Antioxidant formulas. It’s a complete formula of nutrients and minerals that are the basic building blocks for any good skincare regimen. It is suitable for all skin types and is especially beneficial for aging skin. Skin Complete can fill in the gaps in your diet and give you an extra boost of the right nutrients to help your skin look glowing and healthy. Its bio-identical ingredients are encased in capsules that disintegrate in less than 30 minutes, allowing maximum nutrient absorption.


Skin Omegas for Luminous Skin

Omega-3 fatty acids are sometimes known as “good fats” and are an essential part of a balanced diet. They promote cell renewal throughout the body, including the skin, which is constantly shedding its top layers and re-building itself anew. Omega-3s also have anti-inflammatory properties, which benefit all types of skin.

Jane Iredale’s Skin Omegas formulation blends Omega-3 fatty acids and with Omega-6 acids from evening primrose oil and vitamin A. Skin Omegas is a perfect companion to any skincare regimen. Unlike some other formulations, the capsules are easy to digest and have no aftertaste.


Skin Accumax for Acne

Stress, poor nutrition, hormones, and even the weather can cause blemishes to rear their ugly heads. Jane Iredale’s Skin Accumax formula is a nutritional supplement designed to promote healthy skin, help clear non-cystic acne, and improve problem skin overall. It contains a specially-blended combination of vitamins along with diindolylmethane (DIM), a phytonutrient found in cruciferous vegetables. It’s recommended you take these capsules for a minimum of 14 weeks, allowing the top layers of your skin to completely regenerate itself through a number of cycles.


Use Bt-Analyze Skin Identification to Track Progress

The bt-analyze is a high-tech hand-held tool your clinician can use to calculate moisture levels on the skin in multiple zones of your face. It uses bioimpedance technology and a patented skin membrane sensor to take readings, then it records them and displays an analysis on the easy-to-read LCD screen. This allows you and your skin care providers to understand your skin’s specific needs, track the effectiveness of your skincare choices, and choose the best products and services to reach your goals. 

The bt-analyze is easy and fast. It can be used before and after each medspa service to quantify improvements made and to plan any modifications or alterations to your skincare strategy. Regular readings will let you and your clinician see a clear picture of the changes to your skin and tailor recommendations to your needs.
