7 Supplements for Glowing Skin and Prevent Aging

When it comes to that lit from within look, there's only so much that highlighter and topicals can accomplish. It takes diligent consideration of skin - loving minerals, vitamins and nutrients to genuinely illuminate, so if you're looking to shoot sunbeams out of your pores, consider stepping up your supplement game.

1. Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid provides the heavy - duty hydration your skin needs to stay smooth, firm, and naturally glistening.

2. Collagen

This should be a staple in everyone's diet not just for skin, but nails, hair, joints, and digestive health, to boot. When all systems are nourished properly, it's easier for our skin to glow, but of course, this source of protein has plumping power.

This particular medley has both melatonin and magnesium, making it a skin - loving powerhouse so we can restore our elasticity while we clock some major beauty sleep.

3. Green Tea

Green tea is known for its antioxidant, anti - inflammatory and antimicrobial assets but it also does some other stealthy hero work. The polyphenol catechins inhibit the growth of bacteria and can even prevent sebum overproduction. But wait, that's not all. It also protects cellular DNA from sun damage, making it another fantastic ally against premature aging.

4. Zinc

Not only is zinc great for boosting our immune strength, but it's excellent for skin maintenance. It's anti - inflammatory and regulates oil, two major players in the formation of acne.

4. Selenium

This is another essential trace mineral, and we use it for both brain health and beauty! Similarly to antioxidant vitamin E, it neutralizes free radicals and protects cell membranes from pollution and UV light, also known as sun damage. Consider it a form of internal sunscreen to boost your anti - aging efforts.

5. Moringa

This miracle green is an absolute nutrient superstar. Packed with vitamins A, C and E, it promotes collagen growth and safeguards against cellular damage. It's one of the most nutritionally dense greens out there, but it also conveniently comes in powder form so we can add it to smoothies and matcha lattes.

6. Vitamin C Cocktail

Vitamin C is notoriously one of the main building blocks of collagen. If someone is vegan and can't take a true collagen supplement, for example, loading up on vitamin C will lead to major skin improvements.

7. Ashwagandha

There are many forms of stress, but consistently consuming an adaptogen like ashwagandha helps combat both oxidative and mental stress. Since stress almost always reveals itself on the skin - whether that is via breakouts, fine lines, dull skin, or inflammation and redness - it's important that we do everything in our power to combat that.
