Supplement Your Skin

If you want to promote healthy skin and avoid future breakouts, try these supplements, recommended by Ann Louise Gittleman, MS, CNS.

Zinc (25-50 mg per day) Balances excess copper and helps with scarring.

Vitamin E (100-1,200 IUs per day for those with normal blood pressure) Works with selenium to reduce inflammation.

Vitamin B6 (50-200 mg per day) Helps metabolize fatty acids that promote healthy skin. Also helps minimize premenstrual flare-ups.
