Let's talk about skin supplements...

In our quest for luminous, youth-filled skin, we often turn to an array of skincare products and treatments. However, the importance of nourishing our skin from within is gaining increasing recognition. Taking topical solutions a step further, here comes skin supplements – a growing category of dietary supplements designed to promote skin health and beauty from the inside out. In this article, we delve into the science behind skin supplements, their safety considerations, and more.

The Science of Skin Supplements

Skincare supplements can provide nutrients that support skin health by allowing the body to absorb them through the digestive system. When taken orally, the nutrients in skincare supplements are broken down in the stomach and intestines, where they are then absorbed into the bloodstream and transported throughout the body, including the skin. By delivering essential nutrients and antioxidants directly to the skin cells, these supplements help combat these underlying causes of aging and damage and offer comprehensive benefits for our skin. It is fascinating to note that many skincare supplements contain nutrients that benefit not only the skin but also overall health.

Overall, skin supplements are formulated with a variety of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other bioactive compounds. These ingredients work in synergy to combat issues such as oxidative stress and inflammation. Generally, vitamins and minerals aid skin cell turnover and repair, while antioxidants help neutralize free radicals and reduce environmental damage. Additionally, certain botanical extracts are incorporated to provide hydration, improve skin elasticity, and strengthen the skin barrier. 


Skin supplements v.s. Topical skincare

Skincare supplements provide nutritional support for the skin from within the body. Unlike topical products, which are designed to address specific surface-level concerns, supplements work systemically to promote skin health at a cellular level. 

While topical skincare products can yield visible improvements in skin texture and appearance, their effects are often limited to the duration of use. In contrast, skincare supplements offer the potential for long-term benefits by assisting the body's natural processes of skin regeneration, repair, and protection. Consistent intake of supplements can lead to sustained progress in skin resilience over time. 

While skincare supplements offer several advantages over topical skincare products, remember that they are not a substitute for a well-rounded skincare regimen, or a healthy diet and lifestyle. For optimal results, combine supplements with a nutrient-rich diet, proper hydration, sun protection, and a thorough topical skincare routine. You can achieve healthy, glowing skin from the inside out by leveraging the benefits of both internal and external skincare approaches.


Are Skin Supplements Safe?

While skin supplements seem promising, and are usually safe when used as directed, it is important to approach them with careful consideration. Like any dietary supplement, the safety and efficacy of skin supplements can vary depending on the quality of ingredients, formulation, and dosage. Here are a few points to take note of:

  1. When selecting supplements, prioritize those from reputable brands known for adhering to stringent quality control standards and utilizing high-quality, bioavailable ingredients, validated by scientific research and laboratory testing. Opt for brands that demonstrate transparency by providing detailed ingredient lists and test results.
  2. Pay attention to the dosage of active ingredients, and follow the recommended dosage and usage guidelines provided by the manufacturer to minimize the risk of side effects and maximize the benefits. 
  3. Before incorporating skin supplements into your regimen, carefully review all available information. If there are any uncertainties, conduct research or contact the brand for clarification. You may consult with a healthcare professional, especially if you have allergies, sensitivities, or underlying health conditions, or if you are taking medications that may interact with certain ingredients.


Coming soon: The revolutionary, total-skin-solution: White+ Glow

LM Soelle is proud to introduce our latest innovation in skincare supplementation: White+ Glow, the four-time upgraded version of our hero product of oral skin whitening and sun protection. This groundbreaking product is meticulously formulated with two patented botanical extracts, PhytoflORAL® and Pycnogenol®, alongside key components such as Polypodium leucotomos extract, L-Cysteine, L-Glutathione, and Niacinamide. This potent blend is crafted to unveil your skin's inherent radiance. 

Derived from a unique variety of non-GMO white tomatoes, PhytoflORAL® is abundant in colorless carotenoids, particularly phytoene and phytofluene. These compounds exhibit remarkable antioxidant properties, capable of combating the effects of oxidative stress caused by environmental factors like UV rays and pollution, thus reducing signs of aging such as dark spots and pigmentation. PhytoflORAL® also boosts skin's natural radiance for a brighter and lighter appearance thanks to its protection against internal free radical damage.

Pycnogenol®, on the other hand, is sourced from the French maritime pine bark tree, which offers a multitude of advantages for skin health. It reinforces the skin's natural moisture barrier, preventing moisture loss and improving hydration levels. By fortifying the barrier function, Pycnogenol® ensures that moisture remains locked within the skin. Pycnogenol® is a powerful antioxidant with exceptional antiaging effect; it helps fight and reduce the visible signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles and increases skin firmness by stimulating the synthesis of new collagen in the skin.


Below is an overview of White+Glow's benefits:

  • Even skin tone and enhance skin's glow, while also providing defense against environmental stressors and premature aging. 
  • With enhanced collagen synthesis, it firms and rejuvenates the skin, promoting a more youthful appearance. 
  • Ensures optimal moisture retention, resulting in a supple and dewy complexion. 
  • Supports skin elasticity and resilience for a smoother, toned look. 
  • Complete with UV protection, it offers additional defense against sun-induced damage, complementing your daily sunscreen regimen.

As a result, we provide an all-in-one solution tailored to fulfill every one of your skincare needs in one capsule; saving you time and energy in contemplating how best to care for your skin.

The key to beautiful, radiant skin begins with true skin health and vitality, which emphasizes hydration and protection (the two fundamental principles of our brand) rather than just whitening. White+ Glow encompasses this holistic approach. By prioritizing overall wellness, White+ Glow can help you attain the perfect complexion you dream of, an outcome that naturally emerges from a healthy body and skin.
