vitamins-skin-healthOur skin is the largest organ in our bodies. And like any other organ, it needs proper nourishment to stay healthy. This nourishment comes largely from what we eat, but sometimes even a healthy diet full of fruits and vegetables isn’t enough. For patients who want to boost their skin health, oral and intravenous vitamins are a great option.

To find out more about oral and IV vitamins and oral supplements for healthier skin, contact the IV Therapy Center today. You can also book an appointment by calling (310) 550-8000.

Vitamins for Skin Health

Your skin needs a number of important vitamins in order to look and feel its best. Some of the most important are listed below.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C plays an essential role in the body. In addition to functioning as an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, it also supports the immune system and helps the body make serotonin. When it comes to skin health, vitamin C is just as important. It helps keep the skin looking young by promoting the production of collagen (the substance that gives skin its youthful elasticity) and reducing age spots.

IV vitamin therapy allows for high-dose vitamin C treatments. This means your body is able to handle more vitamin C at a higher dose than it would be possible to consume orally. And more vitamin C means healthier, younger looking skin!

MSM

MSM, also known as methyl-sulfonyl-methane, is an essential nutrient in the body. In food, it is found in certain meats, dairy products, and vegetables. It works in the body as an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. In addition to treating autoimmune disorders, osteoarthritis, and a variety of other muscle and joint disorders, IV MSM also helps promote healthy, clear skin. A few of the skin conditions that MSM can treat are:

  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Psoriasis
  • Eczema
  • Dermatitis

B Vitamins

B vitamins are a collection of eight different essential vitamins. They are vital to a number of processes in the body, including the production and maintenance of healthy skin. Research shows that B vitamins help prevent skin conditions ranging from sun damage and acne to dermatitis, dry skin, hyperpigmentation, and more.

One of the best ways to get an adequate dose of B vitamins such as B-12, B-6, and panthenol (a form of B-5) is through Myers’ cocktail. Myers’ cocktail is a mixture of several essential vitamins and minerals. The exact makeup of Myers’ cocktail depends on the specific needs of the patient, but in general it includes several B vitamins that are known to promote healthy, youthful skin.

Magnesium

Magnesium is another essential nutrient that the body needs to maintain healthy skin. While intravenous magnesium is often used to treat cardiovascular conditions, IV magnesium therapy is another great option for the skin. As an anti-allergy nutrient it helps to cleanse the skin and soothe areas that are prone to allergic reactions. It also helps prevent both acne breakouts and wrinkles.

Oral Vitamins

Here at the IV Therapy Center, our experienced physician also recommends specially formulated oral vitamin supplements to take in conjunction with your intravenous treatments to ensure you are receiving well-rounded vitamin therapy for optimal skin health!
