How to Target Problem Skin From Head to Toe

When treating problem-prone skin, it is often forgotten that the skin is a two-sided organ. Treating the skin with topical creams and lotions alone is only targeting one side of the skin. Treating problem-prone skin with a 100% skincare approach ensures that you treat every layer of the skin over the entire body, not just the surface-level skin on the face. 

Feeding the skin from within through a balanced diet and skin supplements allows you to achieve 100% skincare and glowing results from the inside out.  Supplements provide complete coverage of the skin by targeting:

  • All skin components, the epidermis, dermis, hypodermis, blood vessels and sebum. Areas where many topical creams are unable to reach. 

  • The skin over the whole body from head to toe.

What to look for:

When looking for a skin supplement program, the skin researchers at iiaa (international institute for active aging) advise the following when implementing supplements that work to address problem-prone skin: 

  1. Skin supplements that are formulated with pure, high-quality ingredients

  2. Do not contain any harsh chemicals

  3. Incorporate vitamin A to support skin health* 

  4. Contains vitamin C as it protects the skin from oxidative stress**

  5. Zinc contributes to the maintenance of normal skin***

When targeting problem-prone skin, the skin nutritionists at Advanced Nutrition Programme recommend Skin Clear Biome™ for its unique formulation targeted towards stressed and compromised skin. Skin Clear Biome™ works to target problematic-skin by supporting the skin-gut connection with specific strains of beneficial bacteria such as Lactobacillus Helveticus (a species of lactic acid bacteria naturally found in fermented foods like kombucha and kimchi) in combination with zinc to help support compromised skin.


Skin Clear Biome for supporting problematic skin


Steps your clients could consider taking alongside their supplements: 
  1. Consume a variety of fruit and vegetables in their diet. 

  2. Eat fermented foods that include beneficial bacteria to support the gut-skin connection. Fermented foods include sauerkraut, miso, kimchi, and probiotic yoghurt. 

  3. Cut back on dairy products and excess sugar. Limiting excess dairy and sugar is helpful for treating problem-prone skin. Some studies show that the hormones found in milk can impact the hormone levels in our body, sometimes triggering breakouts.

Remember, problem-prone skin can appear on all areas of the body, not just the face. With this in mind, when targeting compromised skin, understanding what to look for when selecting a skin supplement program is a perfect starting point for helping to achieve optimal results in the skin.
