The question I keep hearing from my patients, friends, and peers: “What vitamins should I be taking to improve my skin?” In the past, I often suggested different cocktails of vitamins, including omegas and antioxidants, requiring several different pills and a complicated dosing regimen. Trying to invent a perfect antioxidant skin cocktail was a very confusing job, until recently.
A new kind of vitamin designed specifically for skin just hit the market in the U.S.
GliSODin Skin Nutrients contain a special melon extract combined with other potent antioxidants. These vitamins have been available in Canada for a few years. During that time, they have become all the rage for the prevention of aging and treatment of dull skin, redness, and abnormal pigmentation.
The vitamins contain antioxidants and nutraceuticals specifically formulated for the skin. The product line is based on a melon extract that is known to contain the potent antioxidant superoxide dismutase. Other ingredients include hyaluronic acid, krill oil (rich in omega-3), carotenoids, and bioflavonoids (antioxidants from fruits and vegetables). These ingredients have been shown to prevent signs of aging and reduce redness in skin exposed to the sun. As a dermatologist in Miami – and a person with fair skin – this line is definitely right up my alley. It’s now an important component of my daily skin regimen.
There are several formulas available, so you can tailor your supplement to your skin’s needs.
