Additionally, good quality supplements provide excellent benefits to the overall body. It’s only through providing healthful nutrition first for the rest of the body that nutritional support for the skin can be achieved. The skin is the last stop for nutrients.

Choosing a supplement line

The spa must first realize that clients are already purchasing supplements somewhere, so the line must offer unique advantages to its purchase by offering strong efficacy in the area the purchaser is targeting. In this case, that would mean age management, as well as overall health.

There’s plenty of hydrating and age management skin care supplements out there that will help keep skin in great shape, but the person choosing the vendor should also resource a supplement to lower inflammation and deliver antioxidants to the facial area in an efficient manner. The supplement should also support the body and skin’s inherent ability to remove toxins.

Good age management supplements are a mixture of various natural ingredients that are targeted to benefit skin and body health. All work together to improve the condition of the skin. Of course, supplements should be from a reputable vendor with the appropriate educational and marketing support.

Go the extra mile

You can recommend excellent topical products to your clients, along with professional services, to help reduce fine lines, wrinkles and improve skin texture. But you should consider going the extra mile by recommending supplements to enhance their fight against aging, from the inside out. This combination therapy plan will provide them the tools to fight the visible signs of aging while supporting overall health.
