Q: What products can help improve my acne?

A: Keep your skin glowing and supple in between treatments by using products that treat your skin topically and vitamins that provide internal antioxidant protection.


After cleansing your face in the evening, use an antiaging serum with retinol to exfoliate dry or damaged skin and accelerate cell-turnover.  While its primary objective is to improve discoloration and uneven skin tone, RetinÅ« enhances your skins ability to absorb other products.  Your moisturizer will penetrate deeper into your skin and you will be left with a fresh and glowing complexion.

Q: Can nutritional supplements help improve acne?

A: Taking nutritional supplements for women that come in individual daily packets can help you get the higher doses of vitamin D, calcium and omega-3 fatty acids needed, which a single multivitamin does not typically provide.  Together these provide the antioxidants needed to help keep your skin looking healthy.

Men require a completely unique set of micronutrients to provide them with the required antioxidant protection to maintain healthy skin.  A quality multivitamin for men that can help maintain clear skin will include omega 3 fatty acids, a B-complex, and zinc.


Poor digestion has been linked to breakouts on the face, primarily the forehead for both males and females.  Taking a quality probiotic supplement that introduces the good bacteria, lactobacillus acidophilus, into your body helps restore your natural digestive balance.  In addition to eliminating toxins, probiotics decrease inflammation that can lead to acne.
