What supplements & vitamins do you take for your skin?

For aging, acne and just general skin health.

I was wondering what is out there that is good for your skin? I know Dr. Perricone has some. Also I just started taking Praventin.

I've seen a lot of supplement combinations just for the skin.

Thought I would try some!

Specifically for skin: antioxidants in several forms (i.e., Acai berry, Vit. C, Milk Thistle, etc.) and Cod Liver Oil + what I take mainly for supple joints: HA, Alpha Lipoic Acid, MSM, other EFA's....

I think anything you take is going to play out partly on the health of your skin. What I know I don't need is extra Biotin or things like that. Also, I've never taken a supplement that was geared specifically for skin.

It's not only the supplements, but having a relatively good diet and lifestyle -- things you don't do and things you do. (Guess I'll try to down another cup of green tea.) :)

I take Andrew Lessman's Healthy Hair Skin & Nails, Fruitful Antioxidants, Alpha Lipoic Acid and Omega 3 for my skin.

I take Omega-3, MSM, Hylauronic Acid. I also take a few others but these I consider to be for my skin/hair specifically.

I take Fish Oil to lower my cholesterol (and it did!) -- but the nice side-effect is that it moisturizes my skin too.

Beauty is an attitude ~ have a good one.

Alpha lipoic acid (anti aging for skin and in general, also counteracts my over-sugared diet)

Lessman healthy hair skin and nails

Quercetin (combats inflammation, inflammation is aging)

Nattokinase (reduces fibrin in blood to combat high blood pressure, high blood pressure is aging to your skin)

Cinnamon (combats high blood pressure)

Lutein (anti-aging antioxidant for eyes)

I also eat chia seed and flax seed nearly every day. Great for skin and heart.

NeoCell Super Collagen (collagen loss which starts in our 20's is a reason for sagging and wrinkles), NeoCell Hyaluronic acid capsules (keeps moisture in skin over all the body, good for eye health, Neocell has the natural form), Bioastin astaxanthin ( removes brown spots, great antioxidant)
