Ask the Diva

Ask Savvy Derm Diva – February 2023

Dear Savvy Derm Diva,
Which supplements are best for acne and why?
Wanting Clear Skin Naturally, Kim S.

Dear Wanting Clear Skin Naturally,
Probiotics can be beneficial for acne-prone skin, as they help to correct gut dysbiosis and inflammation, which contribute to breakouts. Glow Biome is formulated with six strains of probiotics that specifically target the gut-skin connection, including the strain L. rhamnosus SP1, which has been found to be beneficial for adult acne.

Diva Tip: Not all Probiotics are created equal and certain strains target specific concerns so make sure you are well informed before you purchase anything. Got a Q? Leave a DM on my IG @savvydermdiva before you invest. Save 10% with code PROGUTHEALTH10

Dear Savvy Derm Diva,
Which vitamins, minerals, or supplements are best for wrinkles and why?
Being Proactive on Aging, Paula W.

Dear Being Proactive on Aging,
The new one to watch is phycocyanin (aka Blue Spirulina). Research has shown it helps against free radical damage from UV radiation and pollution. It’s a protein-rich supplement that is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. But, of course, the purity of it matters, with the best made by Ocean Rx because of its patented production technique and no fillers.

Diva Tip:  Not all Blue Spirulina is created equal. Ocean Rx* has the purest available and you get the necessary dose to make a difference. Research is available on the Ocean Rx Website. Save 15% with code PREGUTHEALTH15
