13 Vitamins You Can Drink That Will Help You Achieve Glowing Skin
Switch on your skin's natural radiance!

Vitamins can do a lot for our skin, whether they come in topical or oral supplement form. They can help us get that lit from within glow. If you're intrigued about which vitamins should be on your radar, check out the list below!

What vitamins are good for the skin?

There are various ways to utilize vitamins for your skin health. Let's first start with topical products that contain skin vitamins.

1. Vitamin A

Vitamin A comes in these forms: Retinol and retinoids. Vitamin A helps minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also helps accelerate the skin's renewal process, treats acne, and decreases sebum production. It's an over-achiever, so it's no surprise that almost everyone loves using this!

2. Vitamin B3

If you're concerned about uneven skin tone, add products with vitamin B3 to your daily skincare routine. This also helps address bumpy skin texture. (Tip: The other term for vitamin B3 is niacinamide!)

5. Vitamin E

If your skin is always exposed to sunlight, dust, and pollution, you'll need a vitamin E-packed skincare product. It's rich in antioxidants so it can help prevent signs of aging. You can also get radiant results if you pair this with a vitamin C skincare product.

6. Vitamin K

Vitamin K is an unpopular choice but it's worth giving a shot. This helps brighten dark circles, but this is better consumed than applied topically. Eat leafy greens like kale, mustard leaves, broccoli, and spinach.

Can beauty supplements work as skin vitamins, too?

Almost everyone on social media take a cocktail of vitamins and supplements that promise to make the skin glow. But, are these really necessary? Here's the answer:

Oral supplements affect and impact the health of your whole body. So, it's not just your skin that may benefit from these beauty vitamins. Your blood, bones, and internal organs will also take advantage of the good stuff.

What oral supplements and vitamins are good for my skin?

You may want to include these in your daily routine to help improve the condition of your hair, skin, nails, and overall health.

7. Biotin

This promises to aid in strengthening the hair and nails. Take this if you notice that you've got brittle strands or digits.

8. Collagen

Dr. Vicki Belo strongly believes that collagen can do a lot for our skin, so it's no surprise that she created a collagen supplement line. According to Dr. Belo, collagen acts like cement that supports the framework of our skin cells. "As we age, our bodies produce less amounts of collagen. As babies, our collagen levels are at the optimum level of 100 percent. At age 20, we have 20 percent less collagen; at 40, 40 percent less; and at 50, our body's collagen supply is tapered off by half. Since collagen is responsible for keeping our skin firm, we need to supplement with collagen as we grow older," she explained.

9. Omega 3-Fatty Acids

Probiotic supplements keep our gut healthy which impacts our mood and skin! Plus, when we've got healthy bacteria in our digestive system, there will be lesser risks of having diarrhea or constipation. Lastly, a healthy gut is correlated to a strong immune system.
