Why Take Skin Support Supplements? The Skin Support Supplement capsules and Skin Support Serum by Olympian Labs help nurture and support your skin to keep it strong and healthy. Used either together or separate, they may maintain healthy skin firmness and elasticity. The essential formula in the capsules help benefit the skin from the inside out, while the Skin Support Serum allows the skin to be rejuvenated on contact.  Both of these products have similar ingredients, but what do the ingredients actually do? Here’s an explanation: DMAE: This ingredient focuses on improving loose or sagging skin. It helps to tighten skin's appearance for a more chiseled and youthful look. Alpha Lipoic Acid: Dr. Weil speaks very highly of this ingredient detailing it as an “antioxidant [that] is vital to cellular energy production, and helps to neutralize the damage caused by free radicals”. While the body can naturally create enough lipoic acid for metabolic functions, supplementation can allow more optimal levels to circulate in a free state. The capsules further include:Skin-Support331-THUMBVIEW-500x500 Grape Skin: There has been much talk about the benefits of resveratrol when it comes to anti-aging.  This is an antioxidant that is found in the skin of the grape.  Although some have encouraged people to drink more red wine to obtain benefits, by taking the supplement, we get more of the concentrated ingredients than drinking the juice of the grape. Grape Seed Extracts: Dr. Oz has made this ingredient very famous over the last few years.  In an article entitled  Skincare Combos That Boost Aging Benefits, he says “grapeseed…help[s] the retinol penetrate further, adding radiance and promoting collagen production to plump up fine lines. The anti-inflammatory properties help counter any negative reactions associated with retinol use, including redness, dryness, flakiness and sensitivity”.
