THE BEST SKIN SUPPLEMENTS TO TAKE FOR MEN

What you put in your body is just as important as what you put on it.

It’s all too easy to think of skin care as an outside in affair. As in what you put on it. It’s actually the reverse that really counts.

Without a good diet of fresh vegetables, wholegrains and lean protein plus adequate hydration from water, you’re already at a disadvantage. Add the pollutants that come from living in an urban centre plus the sweat from your regular workouts and you could probably do with a bit of a helping hand. That’s where skin supplements come in.

Think of them as steroids for your skin without the tedious business of having to pee in a bottle at work. They’ve also come a long way from those giant capsules your mum used to take to stop herself vivisecting your siblings with a carving knife from the time she hit her 40s.

Most can be added to a smoothie and sunk like a shot and within days, you’ll begin to see results. They generally work by supplying bulk antioxidants which minimise free radical cell damage and boost the body’s own production of skin-firming collagen.

And no, put that credit card away. You don’t snort them.
