Vitamins & Supplements for Healthy Glowing Skin

As the seasons change, one thing that always comes to mind is the changes in our skin. Incorporating a skincare routine into your day will make a huge difference in the overall health of your skin. Here are a few things to consider to make sure you are doing the most you can for healthy growing skin.

Look for products that contain Niacinamide(vitamin B3).

Vitamin B3 helps to control acne and pore size, pigmentation and it protects the skin barrier.  Hydropeptide’s redefining serum, polypeptide collagel eye mask, 5x power peel and solar defense all include niacinamide.

Collagen, Collagen, Collagen!

Collagen improves skin, nail and hair health. You can make your own bone broth (recipe coming soon) or simply by a collagen powder. The powder dissolves completely into anything you add it to and has little to no taste.  Hydropeptide’s Collagel face mask and eye mask are beautiful for plumping, firming and hydrating the skin.

Skincare Nutrition

Adding certain foods and supplements into your diet can really help to boost the health of your skin. For example, nuts, seeds, avocado and potatoes are good sources of Vitamin B3. Fish oil(omega 3) is anti inflammatory, improves skin conditions, reduces and improves age rate of skin. Fish oil, flaxseed, salmon, cold water fish and cod liver oil are all good sources of omega 3.  Side note.. massage cod liver oil into scalp, lashes, brows to help them grow!! 

I’m including links below to each of the products mentioned above and one of my favourite collagen powders (you can get it in bulk at Costco!). If you have any questions about your skincare routine, get in touch, I’d be happy to help you customize a routine that works best for you!
