Black Seed Oil is great for your skin and hair.

I must echo what several of members have posted here, particularly the advice to drink more water and avoiding any topicals containing alcohol. The "eight glasses per day" rule went out the window long ago. That would only amount to 64 ounces. The latest recommendation's call for 125 total ounces per day (from food and water combined). That would mean around 100 ounce of water by mouth, and 25 ounces from the typical diet. Following this has helped me with both my skin, and my propensity to form kidney stones.

Collagen is a big one. I'm Asian, and one of the reasons why Asian people tend to age better than white people is because Asian skin has more collagen.

I try and eat salmon and nuts  often and I have seen an improvement.

I see plenty of omega fish oil, but I want something that can make my SKIN look better.

any ideas?
Also make sure the skin/face products you buy are as organic as can be, I switched over being skeptical and my skin is literally the softest I've ever felt and my face is always bright and smooth. I always liked using rose/citrus products on my face and goat milk soap and almond oil for moisturizing the body

My favorite oil for skin is jojoba oil. Supposedly it's very similar to the oil that our skin naturally produces.

My wife goes crazy over that jojoba stuff, I-J. It is one of the few things that doesn't cause her to have a skin reaction and appears to work wonderfully. It must be at least a decade, or so, that she has used it religiously. Hard to believe that it is from a shrub. Far superior to some of the expensive formula's that she used to shell out for at the mall.

I don't use a skin supplement myself (although I'm quasi-religious about my daily COQ-10, Maximum strength Krill Oil, Vitamin D, and Resveratrol supplements) - But my much-missed wife swore by Biotin, it seemed to keep her skin supple and reduce the appearance of "parchment hands" that comes with age, as well as cause her hair and nails to grow more quickly.  It is a fairly inexpensive supplement that can be found at any grocery.

Yes jojoba also and rapeseed oil both are amazing too as skin nourishers and moisturizers.

There are also peptides if your condition is really bad, you could look into them. They are just naturally occurring biochems that your body produces. Definitely not for everyone though.

I am with the water recommendations.....drinking lots of plain water, simple clear clean water is the most kind and healthful thing you can do for your skin.

Alba Botanica body lotion is delightfully free of all petroleum products....stay away from any lotion containing petroleum derivatives...they feel good when applied but dry out the skin and are detrimental to healthy skin.
