Get the lowdown on Skin Health and Supplementation

If you are looking to enhance the effects of your skincare, then adding supplements to your diet can be a great way of target treating a skin concern by fuelling the skin from the inside out.  Topical skincare products work on the epidermis, also known as the outer layer of the skin, whereas supplements can effectively make changes at a deeper level and give your skin the essential nutrients that you may not be getting from your diet.  Read on to learn more about skin health and supplements from Hush & Hush Brand Expert, Michelle Ryan.

Supplements and dehydration 

One of the main concerns the majority of us have as our skin ages is dehydration and fine lines start to appear.  Most of us have heard of and used Hyaluronic Acid and we know it hydrates our skin.  Hyaluronic acid is an essential ingredient we need to retain moisture, volume, and plumpness to the skin.  It’s a humectant that binds water to the skin, giving it youthful volume while helping with elasticity.  This powerful ingredient naturally starts to deplete as we age so it’s important to give it back to your skin.  Adding it topically is one way to incorporate it into your routine.  But you can also integrate it into your daily routine by taking the Hush & Hush SkinCapsule Hydrate+.  It is one of the main ingredients in Hydrate+, along with ceramosides, which replenish the oil content and barrier function of the skin.

Supplements and acne

Another major skin concern we see is acne.  Acne is one of those conditions we can all suffer with from time to time and there can be many different triggers.  On average 54% of women over the age of 25 suffer from facial acne.  It’s important to learn how to manage acne, as there is no quick cure.  You can treat it topically by using ingredients like Salicylic Acid, and Retinol can help to reduce the problem too.  Adding vitamins like vitamin A and Zinc to your daily routine can also help tackle acne.  Vitamin A converts to retinol in the body and can help to regulate oil secretion, while Zinc has been proven to reduce inflammation and blackhead count. Both Vitamin A and zinc are the main ingredients in Hush & Hush SkinCapsule Clear +.

Supplements and pigmentation

Pigmentation is fast becoming a common skincare concern, much like wrinkles, and I feel it is going to be something we are all looking to tackle.  Unfortunately, sun damage on the skin is permanent, but we can lighten and brighten the skin effectively, and prevent it from getting worse.  Obviously the most important product to use daily is an SPF,  but Dr Marc has created a supplement you can take to protect your skin from the inside out and lighten your pigmentation. Saberry is the main component in Hush & Hush SkinCapsule Brighten+ that helps to target pigment in your skin.  This acts as a skin lightener and can help to reduce hyper pigment is as little as 12 weeks.
