Natural Skin Supplements

We all need to learn to love the skin we are in. The living tissue that envelops and protects us, our largest organ, is oftentimes the most neglected. Where would we be without our wonderful skin wrapped around us:  a big pile of bones and vital organs without form, definition, or identity? Our skin is our boundary from the outside world, keeping foreign things out and familiar things in. It is our wall that protects us from the invading hordes and when need to keep it well maintained in order to keep things from falling apart.
Healthy skin supplements derived from natural sources are a great way to keep your skin from breaking down and not doing its job properly. Here are some of the most important repair tools that you will need for healthy and revitalized flesh:
·         DMAE (Dimethylaminoethanol) derived from the skin of fish (especially salmon), this natural compound is capable of providing extra collagen support in the outermost layers of your skin. Collagen is the mortar that keeps together your wall of skin cells tightly woven together and extra collagen support will make your skin firmer and reduce all those fine lines and wrinkles.
·         Vitamin C is needed by your body for practically everything including proper skin maintenance. When applied as a topical, Vitamin C can help reduce sun damage. Taken internally, Vitamin C can help keep your skin looking great by neutralizing skin damaging free radicals and increasing collagen production.
·         Alpha Lipoic Acid is a natural acid that can be found in small amounts in nearly everything we eat, especially liver, kidneys, heart, broccoli and spinach. It is an ultra powerful antioxidant that can help stop the effects of aging and the breakdown of skin elasticity.
·         Retinol, otherwise known as Vitamin A, is necessary for skin regeneration and rejuvenation. It is also helpful for people who happen to have sensitive skin that is prone to redness and peeling. It is readily available as a supplement and can be found in abundance in certain fruits and vegetables such apples and carrots.

Supplementing your diet with these four natural skin protectors will help guarantee you a better looking and better functioning epidermal layer by providing your body the  things it needs in order to maintain healthy skin tissue.

Using these four topically can also help moisturize your skin and erase any blemishes caused by acne, scarring or wrinkles.
