I was given the opportunity to take The 30 Day “Skin Within” Challenge using the Twinlab “Skin Within” Supplement. I am big on taking supplements that will help to nourish and improve beauty from the inside out. I already take a prenatal vitamin and biotin to help improve the health of my skin, hair, and nails. Peek inside for my thoughts and results!

Skin Within is a once-daily supplement that you can take along with your regular vitamin routine. It contains astaxanthin and CoQ10 in it, which is meant to help combat dry skin, fine lines and wrinkles, and make skin have a more supple appearance. There is no added soy, yeast, rice, barley, wheat, milk, citrus, or egg products and there are no artificial sweeteners, flavors, or preservatives which I appreciate. This product over a 6 week period claims to:
- significantly reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- improve the moisture content of dry skin
- significantly improve skin elasticity
- help reduce oxidative stress
It is not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing, as many vitamins and supplements state.
The capsule intimidated me a little bit at first because it is jet black. This product has no added preservatives, flavors, or colors though, so what you see is what you get. Like many vitamins, it does have a bit of a vitamin-like scent to it, but nothing that is so overbearing that you can’t handle it. There was absolutely no taste to the capsules and they felt fine in my stomach. Sometimes supplements can make me feel a little queasy but this one was perfectly fine, and I took it after my breakfast every morning.
AFTER 30 DAYS OF TAKING:
My skin feels smooth and glowing. Probably the most noticeable difference that I noticed was that my skin looked luminous, more luminous than it has in a long time. I have oily skin, so I didn’t necessarily need moisture, but the bags that I typically have underneath my eyes were definitely less pronounced after just one week of taking this. I actually noticed other benefits other than just my skin. My hair felt healthier, and my nails were growing like weeds. I’m not sure if the ingredients are meant to help the hair and nails as well, but I noticed an overall boost in my skin, hair, and nails.
Since I don’t have wrinkles yet, and my fine lines are very fine still (thank goodness), I can’t comment necessarily on that. It did make my skin feel much more soft and smooth, and it kept my skin clear throughout the month I was taking it. I think because it made my skin feel much more supple, it improved the bags under my eyes. This is a huge positive for me! I looked less tired and my skin just in general felt like it was glowing at all times, even without makeup.
Overall, whether you’re a young person looking to improve your skin health or you have fine lines and wrinkles you’d like to improve, this supplement does a good job at improving your skin’s texture. It will really give you a glowing, luminous, lit-from-within look as you continue to take it. It took about a week for me to really notice the differences in the mirror, which is a very short time. I also had the added benefit of my hair and nails feeling longer and stronger as I took this.
