Chronic fatigue, insomnia/poor sleep, food intolerances, food cravings (e.g., sugar), weight gain, skin irritations (e.g., acne, eczema, psoriasis, etc), migraines, autoimmune problems, & mental health problems (e.g., anxiety & depression). Yikes. Don’t know where to start to balance your gut? Invest in a good, quality probiotic. Taking probiotics promotes the growth of healthy bacteria in the gut which has been associated with good skin health. Remember, healthy skin starts from within!
Zinc: When thinking of zinc, most of us automatically think of that hard-to-rub-in mineral sunscreen. But did you know taking zinc orally can support your immune function, increase the strength of your hair & yes you guessed it, aid in you achieving glowing skin? So, how does zinc aid in the health of your skin? Zinc helps to stabilize skin cell walls that start to decrease as we age. So, in other words, it helps to maintain our skin barrier’s integrity, a must for glowing skin!

Supplements & Vitamins for Skin
EFA: AKA essential fatty acids. When we talk about EFAs we are specifically talking about DMK’s EFA+. These supplements, approved by the FDA, are a powerhouse group of EFAs 3, 6, 7 & 9 derived from primrose & sea buckthorn oils. EFAs aid in repairing the cell membranes and help rebuild stronger healthier skin. For those of us dealing with acne, inflammation, pigmentation, fine lines & wrinkles, taking EFAs is the way to go to tackle your skin concerns.
It is important to remember you will not see immediate, drastic results. As with everything, it takes time, patience & consistency to get the desired results. This is especially true when it comes to taking supplements. Taking one supplement is not going to drastically change your skin. It is going to be the commitment to your skin that will help you get your desired glow. Research has shown it takes about 60 days for your body to start to acclimate to the supplements you start taking but don’t get discouraged! Patience is everything when it comes to healing your skin. Don’t forget, your face is your future, let it shine!
