Which skin supplement is right for you?

Struggling with stubborn acne? Got skin irritation or skin that’s just looking, well, dull? It happens! But don’t worry, this guide is here to break down some of our favorite skin supplements that can help you give your skin health a boost.

At Dermala, we have a deep understanding of how what you put into your body affects your skin – after all, it’s our job to know! We’re a team of skincare geeks and scientists working hard to help you put the microorganisms on your skin and in your body to work for healthier, happier skin.

Thing is, stubborn breakouts that don’t respond to over-the-counter treatments often need a different approach, like probiotics. (Or, to be more specific, a carefully selected combination of pre-, pro-, and postbiotics!)  And, what’s more, not all skin concerns – or acne sufferers – need the same combination of ingredients. 

That’s why we have 4 different supplements, tailored for different skin needs, to help you get your skin glowing. In this article, we’ll take a look at the 4 different supplements in our SUPPLEMEANT to Be line to help you find your perfect match.

But first! How exactly do supplements even help your skin?

Here’s the short-ish version.

Your body has what’s called microbiomes – systems of microscopic organisms (like viruses and bacteria) that live together, usually in harmony. The two primary ones, especially when it comes to skin care, are your skin microbiome (all over your skin) and your gut microbiome (in your digestive system). 

When everything is going well, there are good, beneficial microorganisms that protect you from bad bacteria that can cause illness, infection, inflammation, and other kinds of irritation. When something’s out of whack – for example, when a population of bad bacteria overgrows, which can happen after you’ve had to take antibiotics or just because you’re eating a lot of sugar or sweating more than usual – it can show up in all sorts of ways, including as skin breakouts and irritation.

Prebiotics (like garlic and bananas) feed good bacteria to help them grow their population. Probiotics (like you find in yogurt and kombucha) add new good bacteria directly. And postbiotics are the good things left behind by good bacteria that can help more bacteria grow and help your systems run better in the interim while the good guys build up strength. Did you know some bacteria produce vitamins inside your gut after they eat? Kind of gross, but kind of cool, right?

And different vitamins and extracts can support both the good bacteria and your body more directly, by soothing inflammation, regulating blood sugar levels, and so much more.

When it comes to our products, you can always click into “how it works” and “ingredients” for an explanation of how and why the selected ingredients support skin health.

Let’s take a closer look at the 4 different Dermala skin supplements and how to choose the right one to get happier skin from the inside out.

Vitamin Skin Mix

This is a daily vitamin made up of super, skin-supporting vitamins and minerals. Vitamin Skin Mix supports your skin by supporting your body with a unique combo that includes zinc, chromium (which helps regulate blood sugar levels and is believed to help improve acne), Solarplast® spinach leaf extract (packed with antioxidants), hyaluronic acid (which encourages skin hydration), and green tea leaf extract (an anti-inflammatory). 

Try this if you:

  • Are looking for a daily vitamin that boosts skin health
  • Need a little extra support getting glowy, clear skin
  • Struggle with mild to moderate acne 
De-Stress Skin Mix

These tart cherry-flavored vegan, non-GMO gummies help battle stress-related breakouts with stress-reducing ashwagandha and immune function-boosting Vitamin D2 and Zinc. 

Try this if you:

  • Break out when you’re stressed out
  • Have otherwise generally clear skin, but are acne-prone
  • Prefer a gummy to a capsule
DIM Skin Mix

Customers love this unique DIM supplement! DIM is diindolylmethane, a compound found in cruciferous vegetables which promotes estrogen metabolism and supports overall hormone balance – but what you need to know is that it helps to reduce hormonal acne!

Try this if you:

  • Struggle with hormonal or cyclical acne
  • Are having a hard time finding something that works for breakouts
  • Get cystic acne and/or chest acne
Pre + Probiotic + Vitamin Skin Mix

Don’t let the long name scare you – this is the flagship SUPPLEMEANT-to-Be product that combines the vitamin and mineral support of the Vitamin Skin Mix with Dermala’s proprietary prebiotic and probiotic mixes. In a 12-week controlled clinical trial, it was determined by a dermatologist to have provided a statistically significant improvement in: 

  • Redness
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Acne marks
  • Acne scars
  • Number of inflammatory lesions 
  • Number of non-inflammatory lesions
  • Overall acne score (IGA)

Try this if you:

  • Struggle with stubborn acne and breakouts
  • Feel like you’ve tried everything 
  • Want to balance your gut microbiome for clearer skin
  • To stop zits before they start
So, which acne supplement will you choose?

There’s no wrong choice! Choose the one that makes the most sense for your unique skin and skin challenges and you’ll be on your way to the clear, happy skin you deserve.
