Adult acne can be as bewildering as Trump’s Twitter habits. The reasons behind why it starts are as mystifying as Gossip Girl’s identity was to millions of millennials until it was dramatically revealed to be Dan Humphrey during the season finale back in 2012. Dan! Of all people!
While the internet has birthed infinite articles on the myriad causes behind adult acne, the truth is that much of it is caused by hormones and inflammation. If the eyes are the window to the soul, then our skin can often be the looking glass into what’s going on inside our guts and cells. If our visages are regularly entertaining zits, then, it probs (no, defs) means we should be addressing any dietary or hormonal imbalances that are happening deep within.
This is where our dermatologist-formulated supplement, SKIN DISCIPLINE, comes in. The term ‘discipline’ might conjure up images of the terrifyingly strict Mrs Trunchbull in best-ever movie Matilda, or that boot camp you went to in the first week of January because #newyearnewyou, but have never returned to. Don’t worry. It’s nothing like that.
Small in size, mighty in performance, the SKIN DISCIPLINE supplement is a scientifically-backed blend of skin optimizing nutrients and probiotics that work to give you perpetually glowing and clear skin. As is our enduring modus operandi, the supplement works against current and future breakouts by reducing inflammation, regulating sebum and balancing skin-supportive bacteria, from the inside out.
Hand on heart, SKIN DISCIPLINE avows to calm breakout-causing inflammation, regulate sebum levels, balance your gut microbiome and accelerate skin cell turnover.

Behold, the tried-and-tested ingredients that work to kill your zits from the inside out. Each ingredient was meticulously selected and is supported by scores of research papers and clinical trials linked with acne minimization, improved gut health or lowering inflammation.
A critical nutrient for skin health, zinc helps prevent breakouts by regulating oil (sebum) gland activity, reduces breakout severity and strengthens skin cells to turn down scars and post-zit damage. It aids in collagen formation and helps promote healing, control inflammation and regenerate tissue.
SKIN DISCIPLINE's zinc sources were selected for their bioavailability, which means they are efficiently absorbed by the body.
This trace mineral improves glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity. A person's insulin response is quite crucial for skin health, as spikes in blood sugar levels can bring about a rise in breakouts. Chromium helps to both balance blood sugar levels, and also to facilitate the metabolism of skin cells.
Studies show that a deficit in this potent antioxidant can contribute to inflammatory skin conditions like acne. Selenium assists the body in producing glutathione peroxidase, an enzyme that negates inflammation. Selenium also safeguards skin-supporting antioxidants like vitamins A and E, which help reduce breakouts, pigmentation and scarring.
Pantothenic Acid (20mg)
Pantothenic acid helps to engineer vital structural proteins, like collagen. It accelerates the multiplication of skill cells, and helps them to regenerate so that new skin layers may form. Pantothenic Acid is a precursor for coenzyme A which helps to increase the amount of squalene, cholesterol, and other fats that protect the skin and fortify hair follicles. Stronger follicles makes them able to form tighter barriers which stops them from filling up with excess sebum.
Now, here is a vitamin with distinctive anti-inflammatory benefits which are able to dial down the redness and inflammation acne causes. Niacin can also help regulate sebaceous gland activity and in turn, balance oily complexions.
Omega 3 (450mg)
Omega 3 has been used for centuries to improve a number of health conditions. When it comes to skin, the essential fatty acids in Omega 3 fish oil soothe your body’s inflammatory response to excess sebum and bacteria. The fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are found in fish oil, and can promote a reduction in inflammation that brings about a decline in breakouts.
Probiotics (10 Billion CFU)
Not all probiotics are created equal. SKIN DISCIPLINE is formulated with Lactobacilli and Bifidobacterium, probiotics that have proven to positively impact the “gut-brain-skin axis" due to their anti-inflammatory properties. These strains have been aligned with improving breakouts from a systemic level.
Vitamin B6 (3mg)
Vitamin B6 can help to reduce the inflammation that co-exists with acne flare ups, and can be of particular help during menstruation. Studies show that vitamin B6 is able to assist in reducing the sebum overproduction caused by excess testosterone.
Simply put: 2mg of Copper is recommended with the intake of 30mg of zinc per day, in order to balance out the zinc: copper ratio.
