The winter months can really put a strain on your skin, with a combination of the cold weather, harsh winds and then central heating and, let’s be honest,… a diet that is more comforting than rich in raw vitamins, it’s no wonder so many of us see a decline in our general skin health.
During this difficult time for our skin, you may notice that your regular skin care regime just doesn’t cut it. Your skin just needs some extra help which brings us to skin supplements. A secret weapon that will supercharge your winter skin routine.
Expert skin supplements are packed with antioxidants, super foods, & essential oils designed to nourish your skin from the inside out. Feed your face (quite literally) with these goodies to add much needed protection and boost hydration, and enjoy the best skin ever when the spring months appear.
Over the years, the team at Lincoln Laser Skincare have personally tested and stocked a variety of top quality supplements. We have picked the best supplements by ‘The Advanced Nutrition Programme’ that offers a premium range of science based, gluten free and results driven skin supplements. Here are our top 5 that will give your skin a real boost!
1) SKIN VIT C – for brighter, radiant and healthy skin
Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, plays a host of important roles in the human body, as it facilitates healing, increases serum protein binding, strengthens and seals the blood vessel walls, and boosts microcirculation in the capillaries. Also, it permanently plumps out fine lines and combats free radicals. Owing to its gently exfoliating and brightening qualities, it limits the skin’s susceptibility to form discolouration and freckles, effectively brightening the skin. It is often and very accurately referred to as a free radical scavenger. Usually, when our diet is sufficiently rich in fruit and vegetables, the amount of vitamin C supplied with food tends to meet our body’s needs. Vitamin C is not a vitamin that can be stored naturally in the body, hence the need for levels to be constantly maintained. However, in the winter months we tend to eat comforting foods rather than raw fruit and vegetables, making it one of the top vitamins/supplements to add for some amazing skin benefits.

2) SKIN COLLAGEN SUPPORT- for that extra collagen & hydration boost
As we get older, our skin can lose elasticity. This is true of all skin types, but particularly for fairer tones because they have less melanin protection from UV rays. Also, as we age, our natural production of collagen decreases every year, which is why it is so important to take collagen supplements for anyone over age 40. Yes, it will add plumpness and hydration to your skin from the inside which is why is great for winter, but really it is a top supplement all year round, especially for older skins.
This particular Skin Collagen supplement contains vitamins A which contributes to the maintenance of normal healthy skin as well as vitamin C for its role in collagen formation. A very effective blend for maximum results enriched the formula with carefully selected plant extracts.

3) SKIN OMEGAS + – for Dry, Flaky and Sensitive Skin
This is a great internal moisturiser that helps maintain skin integrity and a healthy lipid layer for the most driest and sensitive skins. Two main ingredients are Omega-6 fatty acids that help reduce inflammation and help reduce irritation as well as Omega-3 fatty acids that reduce inflammation, enhance protection barrier and enhance hydration by improving the structural integrity of the cell wall by reducing ‘leaking’ cell osmosis which increases natural hydration. Finally an added Vitamin A will promote cell turnover and stimulate blood circulation. A highly recommended mix for winter for the most dry and sensitive skins and also suitable for problematic inflammatory skin.

4) Skin Accumax – for problematic and Inflammatory skin
This highly effective supplement is a blend of vitamins A, C, E and an active plant component named DIM. Short for Diindolylmethane, DIM is a skin-perfecting, ground breaking ingredient that has been patented by the ‘Advanced Nutrition Programme’ and is not available in any other supplement on the market. This unique phyto-nutrient ingredient is released during the digestion of vegetables such as broccoli; cauliflower, cabbage and brussel sprouts, and can help fight skin disorders and bacterial infections. It helps improve active acne as well as preventing any further breakouts. Added benefits of vitamin A (to regenerate and repair the skin), Vitamin C (antioxidant that will provide protection against environmental factors and oxidative stress) and Vitamin E (to fight the free radicals that can cause premature ageing) make it our top supplement for problematic skin that packs a punch of goodness.
