Get Glowing From Within: Vitamins & Supplements To Support Your Skin Health

When so much of the skin care world recommend topical product applications to improve tone and texture, reduce fine lines, and give you that youthful glow, it’s easily forgotten that much of how our skin looks is more a result of what we put in our bodies!

Fellow skin care addicts – do not panic. We’re not about to denounce the effectiveness of all our favourite serums, cleansers, acids, and moisturisers! We do however want to remind you that to get a true glow from within, that work needs to be done from within.

Although we love all the incredible vitamins and supplements available at WholeLife alongside the extensive research that has gone into every single one, we can’t talk about your skin glow up without mentioning these must know life hacks!

Your diet, water intake, lifestyle, and overall resulting gut health is generally going to be the most important factor in determining your skin health. We’ve written about the relationship between your gut health and skin health here, which we’re now deeming essential reading for everyone invested in their skin health!

 Live a Lifestyle Your Skin Will Love 

Your skin is also a reflection of your lifestyle. Drinking alcohol, smoking and excessive UV exposure (aka the sun) without appropriate sun protection are all going to negatively impact how your skin looks and feels. An excess of any or all these factors may cause a loss of skin elasticity, skin dehydration, premature collagen degradation, or uneven skin tone and texture. The good news is you can 100% control these external factors yourself! Limiting or completely cutting out alcohol consumption and smoking, as well as wearing a strong SPF daily will all put you on the right track to your healthiest looking skin yet.

New to sunscreen? You can read about why it’s important to wear SPF all year round here.

Diet is also a big one when it comes to skin health. If your diet is colourful (a rainbow diet) and packed full of fruit, vegetables, whole grains and protein, you’re on the right track! It’s best to avoid foods that are processed and packaged, as well as fast food from takeaway shops. Our skin especially loves foods that contain essential fatty acids such as salmon, walnuts, and avocado.

All of our vitamin and supplement recommendations will always work best in conjunction with a healthy diet and lifestyle.

 Herbs of Gold Evening Primrose Oil 1000 

As we mentioned before, essential fatty acids are loved by our skin and essential for skin health. Evening Primrose Oil is a vegetarian source of omega-6 gamma-Linolenic acid (GLA) which plays a critical role in normal skin function and appearance. Omega-6 have been found to have a role in the structural integrity and barrier function of the skin. Essential fatty acids may be able to aid the flow of sebum production through the pores, fortifying the skin barrier resulting in healthy, glowing skin.
