5 Supplements Against Oily Skin
On our foreheads or t-zones, shine is not very appealing.
Carrying face dabbers and sponges in our make-up bags to blot away shine is a good place to start, but never forget balance is key when it comes to skin done right. Let’s explore some other tips to correct oily skin:
1) Zinc plays a part in many important body functions.
By bolstering the immune system, it assists in the development and activation of certain white blood cells. It prevents the body from getting infections. Think of Zinc as a “come to the rescue” mineral in proper skin care. Another benefit of Zinc in skin care is that it also acts as a natural insect repellent and a natural sunscreen (zinc oxide effectively blocks the sun’s ultraviolet rays).
2) Lactoferrin, a naturally occurring defense protein, can help fight microbial infection.
Lactoferrin includes Propionibacterium Acnes, a skin bacterium linked to the formation of acne. Lactoferrin also provides statistically significant support for lessening blemishes. Overall, it can help your skin reach an even tone, which qualifies for a less oily palette.
4) Vitamin E, Selenium and Zinc are also thought to help reduce inflammation.
Taking a vitamin E liquid capsule, popping it, and applying the liquid straight to your skin 2-3 times per week is a quick and easy trick to reduce puffiness. Rinse and apply moisturizer, and you’re good to go.
5) Antioxidants, including Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Beta Carotene and the trace element Selenium are neutralizers.
