Even if we eat a well balanced well-varied diet it is very difficult to get all of the necessary nutrient’s day in and day out. This is where supplements can fill the gap and augment the diet.
In addition to a healthy diet, healthy supplementation with herbs and superfoods are advisable.
My top supplement picks for healthy skin...Super Skin Supplements
Rich in antioxidants vitamin A, C, and E, vitamin D, silica, B1, B2, B5, calcium, iron, bioflavonoids.
Anti-ageing strengthens and tightens connective tissues, hair, skin, nails, reduces capillary fragility, helps circulation.
A blend of essential fatty acids rich in omega 3, 6, EPA, DHA, GLA in a small soft gel easy to swallow.
Chlorophyll, the substance responsible for plants green colour “the blood of plants”, has been shown to purify the body, relieve inflammation, and act as a rejuvenating tonic. Scientists have also found that chlorophyll helps to strengthen cellular walls in animal tissue and helps to promote the elimination of toxins from the body.
As a liquid with a mint flavor, it is pleasant tasting and easy to take by adding to water.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. The supplement is often used in weight loss programs to support the building and toning of lean muscle tissue. Collagen supports the structures of the body, strengthens and enhances skin health and tone, anti-ageing, wrinkle reduction, elastic, smoothness, repair and regeneration of connective tissue. Since collagen is replaced quite slowly, inadequate protein intake reduces collagen synthesis often leading to sagging muscles and skin.
Again, quality is key. Do your own research, ask questions about quality testing.

In my training and experience, it is important to make sure colon health is a priority not only for the health of the skin but the health of the entire body. Be sure to be consuming 25-35 grams of soothing fibre per day and ensure 2-3 comfortable formed bowel movements daily.
