Before we start with recommendations, let’s start and determine your skin type.
Best Glutathione Supplement According to Your Skin Type and Needs
To make this article even easier to read and access. I enumerated the different skin types and requirements I could think of. With numerous glutathione supplements in the Philippines it’s so hard to recommend a specific brand. Instead of a specific brand, it will be more helpful for you guys that I indicate which ingredient to look for and which ingredient to avoid. Enjoy!
Skin Type/ Requirement: Dry Skin
Look For: Hyaluronic Acid, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Hydroxytyrosol
Why? Your skin needs extra moisture inside and out. Besides the basic glutathione, you can benefit from moisturizing ingredients like the ones listed above. They are seen in topical skincare but did you know there are supplements that include them as well?
Skin Type/ Requirement: Oily Skin
Look For: Vitamin C
Why? Vitamin C works great in balancing oil internally. Hydroxytyrosol is a derivative from olive oil that can over stimulate our oil production.
Skin Type/ Requirement: Sensitive/Acne Prone Skin
Look For: Lactobacillus/Lactobacilli, Vitamin B complex
Avoid: Alpha Lipoic Acid
Why? I say this over and over and over again. If you have sensitive skin avoid ALA at all costs. I heard a lot of horror stories from my friends and personal experience. It’s a double edged sword. Some people benefit from it, some don’t. It’s a high irritant. Lactobacillus is becoming popular as an anti-acne supplement and some glutathione brands are infusing them with it. (Also see: Yakult for Acne). According to research, one cause of acne is vitamin B deficiency.
Skin Type/ Requirement: Aging Skin
Look For: Placenta, Hyaluronic Acid, Alpha Lipoic Acid (optional), Collagen
Avoid: Alpha Lipoic Acid IF you are also acne prone
Why? The ingredients mentioned above are excellent in stimulating our collagen production. Collagen is the building block of our skin’s elasticity and as time goes by the production becomes slower. Look for these in your supplement to aid in preventing early signs of skin aging. I notice most Japanese skincare supplements have these ingredients.
