  • Supplements to thicken skin or strengthen capillaries?

    Hey, I'm looking for supplements that can do one or the other and hopefully are available at vitamin stores. I've been doing some research 8) and am thinking that's what I want to try.

    Do you have any ideas? Your guesses are better than nothing!

    Hi Sarah,
    I am sorry that your last post didn't get any replies. Sometimes we miss a few but it is not intentional

    As for the supplements that might help with thickening the skin I have no clue but a lot has been posted here regarding grape seed extract and pine bark for strengthening capillaries. For me I believe it does help somewhat. I am taking 1 grapeseed tablet a day. It is Trunature and 150 mg. I bought it at Costco.

    If you do a search on grapeseed extract you will find more info on it.

    Best wishes,
    Melissa

          Pine bark extract is a nutritional supplement patented by a French researcher under the name Pycnogenol.

          Pycnogenol and grape seed are similar in that they both contain OPC's.

              I found that to drink one or two glasses of grape juice help me a lot to digest. Therefore, my face is not swollen. I also find that it helps me to reduce my redness. Yesterday after doing 20 minutes of sport I was greatly surprise I didn't turn red and found during the effort no sensation of hot on my cheeks!! which means no flushing!! (it was 10 degree outside though)

              I continue to drink it (red or black grape juice because the withe one doesn"t contain as many vitamin P as the two named before) and see if it really help or if it was something else but it makes sense because grape juice contains vitamin P which helps to strengthen capillaries

                I have heard that niacinamide can strengthen the skin barrier.
