Can vitamins really make your skin better?

“We used to call beauty creams ‘hope in a jar,’” said Dr. Rajani Katta, a clinical professor of dermatology at the McGovern Medical School University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston. “Now we call it ‘hope in a capsule.’ That’s what it is. It’s hope. There is no single supplement that can ever replace the foundation of good health. People are hoping they can eat whatever they want and take a supplement, but it doesn’t work that way.”

Here, TODAY Style investigates what the ingredients in beauty supplements really mean and whether (or not) they work:

Biotin

The promise: Otherwise known as vitamin B7, biotin is regularly marketed as a way to thicken hair.

The reality: Biotin supplements won’t work unless you have an actual deficiency (you’ll need bloodwork to know that). Chances are, the product you’re using isn’t going to restore thinning locks and may even have more biotin than recommended by the FDA. “The biotin level in one popular gummy contains 5,000 micrograms of biotin while the FDA suggests that an adequate intake of biotin is just 30 micrograms,” Katta said.

Is it safe to drink a multivitamin after consuming a lot of alcohol?

I'm a little drunk after a heavy night of drinking, I'm about to fall asleep and I decide its a good idea to take the multivitamin my mom always begs me to take, when normally I dont take it. Is it okay that I did this? I just drank a ton tonight... I


You will probably not experience any problem combining the multivitamin with alcohol. Whether you can metabolize it, I wouldn't be able to begin to say - I'm not a doctor, so the sequence various substances are metabolized in is a bit fuzzy for me.


I don't think it is harmful since it's just vitamins but since you usually don't take it, I suggest you just pass on taking it right now.
