The supplements you should choose to make your skin healthier and brighter   Here's how to boost your summer beauty routine

Nowadays, the health and beauty of the skin increasingly involve a concept of "beauty from within", i.e. helping and supporting our skin by nourishing it from within. It is no coincidence that we can all remember a time when we overindulged in food and alcohol for a few days - the Christmas holidays being just one example - with the effects showing on our faces in the form of dullness, dehydration and blemishes (the pimple on the chin being a must). And while eating a balanced and nutritious diet is essential, sometimes it can be helpful to support an all-around beauty routine with a skin supplement, especially in summer, the season when skin ages the most. 

Increased exposure to ultra-violet rays causes, in fact, increased production of free oxygen radicals that lead to the appearance of oxidative stress - one of the culprits of physical and aesthetic decay. And while it is true that the aging process cannot be stopped, there is much we can do to slow it down. Skincare is a much more complex and holistic practice than simply applying topical formulas: emotions, lifestyle and diet all play an intrinsic role in the health of our skin. If you are not eating or sleeping well, or suffer from stress or anxiety, this is likely to manifest on your skin. Dr. Yannis Alexandrides, cosmetic surgeon and founder of the 111Skin brand, explains that it's all part of the gut-skin connection, what we ingest reaches our gut and all kinds of bodily processes are influenced from there: you have to think of supplements as a piece of the puzzle, a targeted supplement regime can benefit your skin along with a healthy lifestyle and eating habits.

But what nutrients and vitamins do we need to improve the health of our skin? Generally speaking, vitamins such as A, C and E all play a vital role as they fight free radicals, while others such as vitamin B (including B3, or niacinamide, which is both anti-inflammatory and an excellent antioxidant) and zinc give the body energy and counteract the appearance of dermatitis; then there are certain nutrients - such as essential fatty acids - that our body cannot synthesize but are crucial to our bodily health as they protect against photo-aging, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and improve the texture of dull, dull skin. It is therefore important to supplement.

LPG endermologie has in fact developed new "IN" solutions to keep the skin healthy and moisturized and protect it from external aggressions that could alter its radiance. Among these, endermonutri Hydratation éclat waterglow is the new ally for quenching the skin's thirst and preserving its natural beauty as it maintains the skin's natural balance, day after day, thanks to specially selected active ingredients such as zinc, hyaluronic acid and vitamin B3. Adesso Beauty has also just launched Glowy and balanced skin: the new dietary supplement based on vitamins, plant extracts and hyaluronic acid that keeps the skin in perfect balance, favoring its natural radiance and elasticity; a perfect treatment to be combined with the brand's skincare products with an "inside-out" approach to optimize results. Or again, Aime proposes French Glow: A formula based on lactic ferments and essential fatty acids designed like a cream, which takes care of the skin from the inside out for an intense glow.

In short, the new generation of dietary supplements is decidedly cool and privileges the worlds of beauty and wellness in general, which are merging more and more.
