At the core of beautiful skin is a healthy, well-functioning body. Unfortunately, if our bodies lack nutrients, our skin is the first to show the repercussions. Learn about inner beauty with some insights on beauty supplements here at SkinStore!

Supplements for Skincare

Do you yearn for the radiance that some women effortlessly ooze from their pores?  Or find yourself pining for the glow of yesteryear?  If you answered yes, the addition of an oral supplement to your diet just may be the solution that your body is craving.  Lackluster, dull, dehydrated skin is often a symptom of poor nutritional balance, but beauty supplements can tip the scale in your skin's favor. 

Do supplements really help the skin?

They can, depending on your skin’s needs and your beauty goals. Here’s how three specific supplements can help with your beauty routine from the inside out.


In recent studies, supplements rich in omega-3 help to nourish and hydrate the skin from the inside out. According to theUniversity of Maryland Medical Center, “Omega-3 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids.  They are vital to human health, but cannot be manufactured by the body.  For this reason, omega-3 fatty acids must be obtained from food or supplements.” 

Expert Note: FYI, Omega-3 is naturally present in fish such as tuna, salmon, and halibut.  It is also found in walnuts, flax seeds, soybeans, and pumpkin seeds.

Omega-3 fatty acids also have other positive health benefits.  According to the American Heart Association, “Omega-3 fatty acids benefit the heart of healthy people, and those at high risk of — or who have — cardiovascular disease.” Omega-3 has also been linked to boost metabolism, decrease appetite, improve memory loss, and improve your mood.

If you want to start your inner wellness journey, brands like Perricone MDhave dedicated starter kits to give you a head start. These targeted nutritional supplements are an essential part of Dr. Perricone's 3-Tier Approach for a healthy body and beautiful skin. 

Their perfectly dosed daily program of nutrients, the Skin and Total Body Dietary Supplements, is specifically designed to help support a healthy immune system and improve cognitive skills while enhancing the look of your skin. Formulated with supplements to support bone and joint function, including Omega 3, these supplements can help fight free radical damage and stimulate healthy growth of hair and nails. 

Probiotics & Immunity Support 

Incorporating an advanced probiotic supplement technology to maintain your natural beauty and wellbeing can be a great assistant to your beauty routine and boost your immune system. In both pill and powder forms,  a healthy mix of probiotics from brands like The Beauty Chef can have a positive effect on your gut as well, reducing inflammation and leaving your skin with a natural radiance. 

Beauty lovers with sensitive skin can also benefit from probiotic skincare as the market has brands tailored to their needs, likeGallinee, to optimize their inner beauty and restore their microbiome. 

Multivitamins & Tanning 

According to the Washington Post, almost 40 percent of adults 60 and older take multivitamin or mineral supplements.

Multivitamins are a great catch-all for supplementing your inner wellness, but single-ingredient or problem-focused vitamins can help customize your beauty routine! 

For example, FGBG’s Summer Glow Tanning Gummies are perfect for optimizing tanning results. The brand’s gummies are pectin based & are a coveted combination of essential nutrients and antioxidants that trigger natural manin production while promoting healthy skin.
