It’s easy to get lost trying to figure out what the best skincare regimen is. So many decisions to make with a plethora of choices from cleanser, toner, serum, and moisturizer to sun protection and cosmetics. But, can we put the breaks on and back it up for a minute to think about what we are feeding our skin? Everyone knows that eating nutritious food is necessary for optimal health and is essential to all of our organs, including our largest and (in our opinion) most fascinating one, skin. Good nutrition can positively affect how well skin heals, rejuvenates, replenishes and reproduces healthy cells - playing a major role in how we look as we age. With this said, it is important to note that there are some nutrients that you simply cannot get enough of through your diet alone.

If you have not been introduced to Jane Iredale’s supplement line, then ask your aesthetician why she has been holding out on you! LOL! At Orchard Med Spa we have been in love with Jane Iredale Skin Accumax supplements for a long time. It is a must for those who struggle with acne, uneven texture, or problematic skin. Skin Accumax is an all natural food-sourced vitamin supplement that delivers similar results to the often prescribed Accutane, without any of the negative side effects commonly associated with that drug.  

Yes, you read that right... Skin Accumax is an Accutane alternative that delivers proven acne-clearing results safely and naturally, in an easy to use, daily vitamin.

Recently, Jane Iredale has added two more promising supplements to her line up of internal skin care.  At Orchard Med Spa we are on-board and encourage you to commit to creating a healthy internal foundation for your own skin.

Read on to learn more about the Skin Complete Kit, Skin Omegas and Skin Accumax

Good to Know: All of our supplements are manufactured in the UK where pharmaceutical standards are much stricter than in the US. These formulations are rigorously tested to prove the they exceed industry standards. They are easily absorbed, vegan, and free from dairy, yeast, harsh chemicals and pollutants.

Skin Complete Kit  (60 capsules of each, $79)
Skin Vitamin A
All of the following are related to Vitamin A and considered “must-haves” for great skin care: Beta-Carotene, Retinyl Palmitate, Retinoids, Retinol, Retinaldehyde, and Tretinoin (aka Retin-A or Renova). All of these are important for the healthy production of new collagen and elastin within the skin, as well as being vital to the health of your vision and immune system. Vitamin A does not discriminate - whether you struggle with acne, brown spots and sun damage, or are just looking to smooth lines and wrinkles, Vitamin A should be a part of your routine and supplementing with Skin Vitamin A by Jane Iredale will get you off to a great start!
Skin Antioxidant
This is a powerhouse combination of 7 specially selected phytonutrients (from plants). As beautiful and blessed as we are to live and breathe...our earthly environment exposes our skin daily to ultraviolet radiation and pollution. We all know about damage from the sun and environmental pollutants, but did you know that light from your computer screen and the heat from your cell phone cause damage to your skin?  At Orchard Med Spa we like to think of antioxidants as the mighty soldiers in the war against aging and free-radical skin damage. Introducing antioxidants to your skin topically (serums) and internally (food/supplements) are critical to optimal health, so please don’t skip this important step.

Skin Omegas (60 capsules, $49)
Essential Fatty Acids (omega-3 and omega-6) are not produced by your body, so you need to get them from food - or supplements! Omegas greatly benefit skin by regulating oil production to prevent acne, and by delaying the skin's aging process to stave off wrinkles. Omega-3 is an anti-inflammatory that enhances the skin's ability to protect you and provides hydration and smoothness to all skin types. Omega-6 reduces itching, redness, and unhealthy retention of fluid. Healthy fats are so important!

Skin Accumax (60 capsules, $69)
Our long-time favorite! Usually not a quick fix (plan on a 14 week commitment), but when you are ready to get serious and get to the bottom your acne issues, this is how you do it. Skin Accumax is the perfect patented blend of vitamins A, C, E and an amazing phytonutrient called DIM. DIM is found in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, and it fine tunes the way your body metabolizes certain hormones. Your body absorbs these antioxidants and nutrients to fill voids in the nutrition you get from your diet - healing your organs (including skin) and balancing your metabolic processes. The result is clear, healthy-looking skin.
