6 Supplements for Glowing Skin

Written by Dr. Kellyann Petrucci

People sometimes say to me, “You have such great skin—you must have terrific genes!” But trust me: It’s not the genes. I work at it. It’s true that I inherited a nice Italian complexion. (Thanks, mom and dad!) But as I aged, time still took its toll in the form of wrinkles, dryness, and dullness. I tried all the creams and potions—don’t we all?—but I quickly discovered that the best way to have glowing skin is to build it from the inside out.

So for more than a decade, I’ve banished skin-damaging grains and sugars from my diet and loaded up on skin-renewing foods like avocados, bone broth, coconut oil, blueberries, and leafy greens. As a result, I look younger than I did ten years ago.

But food isn’t my only secret! In addition, I augment my diet with six potent supplements that heal, smooth, and beautify skin. Here they are:

COLLAGEN. It’s no contest—this definitely earns the #1 spot on my list. Collagen is your skin’s “support system,” and when it breaks down as you age, your skin starts to sag and wrinkle. So in addition to drinking bone broth, which supplies you with the building blocks of collagen, blast your wrinkles with collagen powder shakes and smoothies.

ZINC. This is an amazing skin strengthener and healer. It has anti-inflammatory properties and protects against sun damage—and if you have acne, eczema, or psoriasis, it can help reduce the frequency and severity of your outbreaks.

OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS. As you age, your skin cells lose their plumpness. (I like to compare this to a row of soccer balls slowly going flat.) Omega-3 fatty acids strengthen the mem¬branes of these cells, plumping them up and making them bouncy again.

VITAMIN C. This vitamin acts as a “buddy” for collagen, promoting its formation. In addition, vitamin C’s antioxidant properties help you fight aging.

PROBIOTICS AND PREBIOTICS. These two supplements work hand-in-hand. Probiotics are beneficial gut microbes, while prebiotics provide healthy fiber that helps those microbes thrive. Both are powerful gut healers—and a healthy gut is the biggest key to beautiful, youthful skin.

Unlike wrinkle creams, which only work on the surface, these supplements—combined with a diet of healthy fats, lean proteins, bone broth, and fruits and veggies—will strengthen your skin at the cellular level. And unlike Botox, which merely paralyzes your muscles temporarily, their effects are lasting.

So if you want gorgeous skin for life, follow my lead: work at it! Simply smearing wrinkle cream on your face isn’t enough to do the job. Instead, feed your skin the nutrients it needs every day, so it can glow inside and out.

Keep Thinking Big and living BOLD!
