5 beauty supplements that I swear by

as someone who has suffered from long term rosacea acne, i'm currently browsing for probiotics too! i heard from my favourite youtuber who's also a skincare expert (it's liah yoo!) that she also takes probiotics, omega-3 fish oil and zinc. i'm not sure about zinc but i'm definitely going to start looking into probiotics. i'm also planning to take evening primrose oil again. if i remember correctly, EPO is good for hormones so hormonal acne or period can be better regulated. as for omega fish oil, it's something i've been taking for quite some time now but i never really noticed any effects. oh well, maybe it's also because since i have such a stressful life and occasional dehydrated skin that i feel like the fish oil isn't doing anything.

likewise, i also like taking spirulina as my antioxidants. i never knew antioxidants can help with acne and inflammation because when i took spirulina, the only hope i had was to give me some energy so i don't feel sluggish. i guess it's a win win situation now.

and then of course i also take multivitamins (just a budget friendly one from kirkland which may not be the highest, premium grade for vitamins but eh, whatever? lol) and then a separate vitamin D3 because i have vit D deficiency from not being able to be exposed under the sun (the sun and my rosacea aren't bffs)

recently i bought pure matcha powder and i've been enjoying brewing my own matcha tea latte so i'd cut down coffee. the only thing i still find difficult to avoid is sugar. it's not that i'm a total sweet tooth on daily basis but when i'm under stress, i tend to binge eat sugar. not only it's bad for my skin, it can also halt my period. this means i have to stop adding vanilla syrup into my matcha latte, yikes!

These all sound great. I have been thinking of take collagen though not sure if taking it orally is effective. And I do need to take a probiotic

I'm a bit conflicted about the actual efficacy of collagen powder. I know so many people (especially in Asia) swear by them, but the research is limited, so I'm glad this powder has other ingredients in there as well!
