In addition to protecting the body from various cancers, selenium also preserves tissue elasticity and slows down the signs of aging in the skin. Studies also show that taking a selenium supplement can also protect the body and skin from the effects of excessive UV exposure, too!

3. Vitamin C

Vitamin C is another vital antioxidant that keeps the skin protected. It plays a crucial role in repairing any damage done to the skin from free radicals, preventing them from causing cancer or premature aging concerns. This powerful vitamin has also been found to restore the skin's brightness and help fade dark spots and uneven texture.

4. Fish Oil

Fish oil supplements are comprised of omega-3 fatty acids docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), which both work hard to regulate oil production, boost hydration, and prevent wrinkles. These supplements can also keep breakouts at bay and help you obtain clear, acne-free skin.
