Back-to-school stress... and acne

What supplements should you focus on?

Since we're talking about back-to-school and how to deal with the stress that comes with it, it's only natural to talk about acne, which is often a result of high stress levels, especially in teens.

Whether it's a monthly breakout or more severe cystic acne, certain antioxidants and phytonutrients found in foods and supplements can have incredible benefits for skin health.

It has been shown that people with acne have significantly lower levels of zinc, vitamin A, and vitamin E than those without acne. So including foods rich in these vitamins is a good idea to help manage acne levels.

Let's start with the foods

Vitamin A helps keep the immune system functioning properly, while also supporting vision and maintaining healthy skin. Vitamin A-rich: cheese, eggs, fatty fish, fortified low-fat spreads, milk and yogurt.

Vitamin E helps maintain healthy skin and eyes, and boosts the body's natural defenses against disease and infection. Foods rich in vitamin E: plant oils, nuts and seeds, wheat germ.

Your skin needs zinc to function properly. It also helps decrease sebum production in the skin, and can protect against bacterial infections and inflammation. What foods are rich in zinc? beans, pumpkin seeds, cashews and chickpeas.

What about supplements ?

Maca

Available in powder or in capsules for women and Men, Maca has incredible benefits for helping to balance hormones and reduce levels of cortisol, also known as the stress hormone. High levels of cortisol can cause imbalances in your sex hormones, which in turn affect acne. Incorporate maca into your routine to help manage stress levels and acne breakouts.

Spirulina

This superfood comes from lakes and ponds and has a pretty impressive nutritional profile. Spirulina contains high amounts of calcium, magnesium and potassium, and these hormone-balancing nutrients have been shown to reduce cramps, help balance mood and overall inflammation. Since acne is indeed an inflammation of the skin, incorporating spirulina into your daily routine can help calm your acne.
