All about topical remedies for skin health

There’s more than one way to support your skin health! Whether you’re looking to reduce acne, treat a burn, or find relief from eczema, there are a few different ways you can approach it. While each method has its own set of benefits, some situations may call for a more immediate solution on the skin’s surface, and others may require the use of topical remedies in combination with other methods. Let’s take a look at the benefits of topical skin remedies and when to use them.

The lowdown on topical skincare

Topical solutions or treatments for the skin are applied on the surface of the skin rather than ingested. This can include creams, serums, cleansers, moisturizers – basically anything you might apply to your skin’s surface for a specific effect. They can be used to treat many skin-related struggles, including dry skin, healing wounds, acne, and even reducing joint or muscle pain. While some topical solutions work to treat a specific area of the skin, others are designed to be absorbed by the bloodstream through the dermis (the inner layer of the skin). How a topical solution works depends on what its intended purpose is and the active ingredients within it.

Topical solutions vs. oral solutions

Did you know that your diet is one of the most effective methods when it comes to taking care of your skin health? A well-balanced diet provides you with essential nutrients and vitamins that your skin needs to thrive! For example, drinking plenty of fluids can help support your body’s detoxification pathways. This means that we’re not holding on to unwanted toxins that can build up and cause rashes, spots, or blemishes on the skin. Additionally, foods that directly support skin health can help keep us looking youthful with smooth, glowing skin (more on this later!).

From making sure we’ve got plenty of energy to supporting healthy growth, development, wound healing, and more, our diets are directly linked to our overall health. Naturally, this includes the health of your skin as well!

What are the benefits of oral skincare?

Eating a nutritious diet that’s rich in skin-supporting vitamins and nutrients can help keep your skin healthy. And when diet’s not enough, leaning on supplements that are known to benefit your skin such as vitamin C, vitamin d, or zinc can be useful as well. These nutrients enter our bloodstream and get absorbed by our blood vessels. Within the body, they work with other compounds and enzymes, ultimately working to benefit our skin. Vitamin C is known to support collagen production within the skin, which can help keep our skin supple and glowing. Additionally, vitamin D can help to reduce inflammation and zinc is known for its wound healing properties. As a result, these nutrients help support our skin health.

While it’s important to build a healthy foundation from the inside out, there are times when we need a more immediate solution. Using a combination of both oral and topical solutions can help you get those rapid results.

When should you reach for topical solutions?

Experts say it may be better to use oral treatments alongside topical solutions to support your skin. Oral supplements are there to help give you the support your body may be lacking, but using them in combination is going the extra mile! As a result, creating a routine that combines both oral and topical solutions can help get you closer to achieving your skin health goals – whether it’s reducing acne, treating a bug bite, or targeting a skin condition.
