Will Oral Supplements Help Your Skin?
In that our skin is our largest organ, our health is reflected in our skin. It’s also our most visible organ.
We’ve all had the experience of seeing the skin of someone we know change during a severe illness, chemotherapy, an alcoholic binge, or smoking. So that’s my perspective when patients or journalists ask me about skin and supplements.
Supplements recommended by your doctor or naturopath that facilitate your health will aid your skin as well. But let’s be realistic, supplements won’t get rid of wrinkles or make you look 10 years younger. Only a specific treatment course with lasers, some fillers, and sometimes surgery, can do that.There is no specific "cocktail" of supplements at this point in time proven to aid skin.
Whatever you’re taking, please don’t forget your Vitamin D. Most of us, especially in the north, are deficient. Have your doctor check your blood level and advise you from there.
