How to Get Breakout-Free Skin: Part 5

(Part 5 of 7)  By Sophie Parmenter, Spa Gregorie’s Lead Esthetician and Trainer

My Top Skin-Friendly Nutrients:

ALPHA LIPOIC ACID – decreases skin roughness
COENZYME Q10 – lessens crows feet
GREEN TEA EXTRACT – neutralizes free radicals protects against sun damage
SELENIUM and SILICA – improves skin elasticity, fights wrinkles, helps brittle hair and nails
VITAMINS C and E – high antioxidant, lightens age spots reduces fine lines and wrinkles, rebuilds collagen
POMEGRANATE EXTRACT and RESVERSATOL – protects against free radicals and decreases fine lines

Here are ways to implement supplements into our bodies:

  • ALPHA LIPOIC ACID: red meat, organ meats such as liver, and brewers yeast have this high in content.  You may also take in capsule form; 20-50 mg per day recommended.
  • COENZYME Q10: salmon or tuna, whole grains, or capsule form 30-200 mg recommended.
  • GREEN TEA EXTRACT:  I have as a tea or put in fridge as an iced tea drink.  Add in cranberry juice to spice up your tea, preferably decaffeinated and organic when buying your tea bags! 🙂
  • SELENIUM: crab, liver , fish , poultry and wheat all have this.  If taken in supplement form, 60-90 mg a day.
  • SILICA: most fruit and veggies have this, but I purchase in a gel form and add to smoothies!
  • POMEGRANATE EXTRACT: you may get the fruit when in season.  Also Trader Joes has them already opened and prepared for you.  I sprinkle on my yougurt with some granola and honey.  Or buy the juice and add to smoothies.  It also comes in a capsule form in the antioxidant section!
  • RESVERSATOL: Most popularly found in red wine!! Also found in capsule form; 100 mg a day is recommended.
