Celebrity beauty secrets that are essential for the skin


Omega 3Nutrients from foods are essential for the skin, but are not enough. For great skin it helps to also use supplements. A number of celebrities attribute astonishing beauty results to the following breakthrough vitamins in various combinations:

Omega-3 fatty acids

These essential fatty acids promote healthy cell membranes and improve skin tone from the inside. You can get them in the form of fish oil capsules.

Vitamin B complex

B vitamins feed the nervous system, so they are excellent stress-busters. A good supplement will include Niacin, B6 and Pantothenic acid. 

Grape seed extract

Grape seed extract fights against cellular damage caused by free radicals. This anti-oxidant binds with collagen, thus promoting increased elasticity for youthful, wrinkle-free skin.


Zinc is an immune boosting, anti-inflammatory mineral, touted for its beneficial effects for acne. It works best when taken with Vitamin C, a powerful immune-booster and stress buster.

Coenzyme Q10

It is essential for proper cell functioning. This potent anti-oxidant added to your diet in the form of oily fish, liver, kidney and whole grains has several beneficial effects.


The adrenal gland normally secretes this anti-ageing hormone. Some say it slows ageing by increasing muscle and bone mass and burns fat.


This is your classic “skin, hair and nails” vitamin. Biotin is a vitamin necessary for metabolising amino acids and fats and is popular in the world of hair products.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a powerful anti-oxidant that works well to preserve youthful smooth skin. It blocks free radical damage, a main cause of wrinkles. Vitamin E also increases collagen production and promotes cellular turnover. You can open Vitamin E capsules and apply the oil topically on burns, scars, and dry cuticles.

Green tea extract

Green tea, popularly consumed in the Far East for centuries, has been touted as a fountain of youth. Green tea is rich in catechins, a polyphenol that researchers attribute to longevity and weight loss.
