More people are turning to supplements to help them with the battle against skin aging. Naturally, these are taken on top of the assorted skincare products and spa treatments such as microdermabrasion facials, chemical peels, and the like. There are studies to support the efficacy of these supplements but some products truly do not have anything to back up their therapeutic claims. In considering adding these to your anti-aging arsenal, it’s important to select the supplements with proven beneficial effects and at the right dosage to deliver therapeutic benefits. This doesn’t mean though that you can just pop some pills to address your skin aging concerns. While these products may be helpful they will not replace the benefits you can derive from actual skin treatments such as those from deep exfoliation in the form of diamond microdrmabrasion machine treatments and peeling facials, to skin resurfacing treatments via laser, light, and other energy-based procedures. Also, as far as preventing further skin damage and forestalling additional lines, wrinkles, spots, and sagging, these oral supplements are a long way away from matching the results that facial treatments—whether those from a doctor’s clinic, a spa, or even those through at-home skin care products—can deliver. At best, these supplements are just that, an addition, extra, or add-on to other known and proven anti-aging solutions. In the meantime, don’t give up on these supplements but keep in mind that we can always rely on the current popular treatments and procedures available to us. With technology continuously trying to push the boundaries, there is always something new to try out, some recent development or innovation that will help in the fight against wrinkles, sun damage, acne scars, vascular conditions (redness or visible blood vessels), uneven pigmentation, and the loss of skin tone or firmness.
