All of us want to look our best. But as we age, some of us don’t feel as if our skin will pass the test of time. Fortunately, you don’t have to rely on painful and expensive procedures to show off younger looking skin. It is actually possible by simply changing your diet and making sure you are getting the right supplements. Here are five supplements that, along with a healthy diet, will help your skin look more vibrant and younger than ever before.

1 – Fern Extract

You probably know the importance of sun protection to stop the signs of aging, but there is more that you can do in addition to that. One supplement that works very well for sun protection is fern extract. It is best when taken about a week or so before you hit the beach, and it can help to reduce the damage from the UVA rays of the sun.

2 – Idebenone

Another supplement you might want to consider adding is called idebenone. This is an antioxidant that is available in pill form, but you can also get it in a cream or serum. Idebenone is essentially a synthetic form of coenzyme Q10, a natural substance that helps to remove wrinkles and improve the overall look of skin.

3 – Primrose Oil

You can also choose to take primrose oil for healthier, younger skin. Primrose oil contains a type of healthy fat known as gamma-linoleic acid or GLA. GLA is difficult to come by in your diet, so getting it through a supplement like primrose oil is quite helpful. GLA helps to bring about younger skin, but also is excellent for your hair and nails.

4 – Biotin

Biotin is one of the popular B vitamins and an essential addition to your diet if you want to achieve younger looking skin. Naturally, it can be found in foods like bananas and peanut butter, but you can also find biotin supplements at your local drugstore or vitamin shop. You can get added benefits by combining it with chromium picolinate.

5 – Fish Oil

You might have heard that taking fish oil supplements can help your cardiovascular system, but it can also be highly beneficial when taken for younger skin. Fish oil is primarily made of omega-3s and this substance helps to keep moisture in your skin. It also prevents wrinkles and sagging.

Many beauty and health companies today realise the importance of using natural supplements when it comes to preventing the aging process. In fact, companies like Murad.co.uk encourage men and women to care for the skin naturally even before the onset of aging begins.

These are just a few of the supplements that you might want to consider adding to your diet for younger looking skin. Make sure to talk to your doctor before starting any vitamin or supplement regimen.
