Best Vitamins For The Skin

 

Like every other part of your body, your skin relies on good nutrition to stay healthy. A diet rich in antioxidants is good for your whole body, inside and out.

Fruits and vegetables rich in beta-carotene and antioxidant vitamins C, E, and A can prevent damage caused by free radicals and reduce the signs of aging. Fish and nuts rich in Omega-3 fatty acids strengthen the skin against damage and toxins. Good nutrition protects the whole body against deficiencies and damage that also eventually take their toll on the skin.

The best way to ensure your diet includes all the skin-boosting nutrients you need is to eat a variety of fruits and vegetables in a rainbow of colors. Add eggs, nuts, lean protein, whole grains, and plenty of water, and you will probably get all the vitamins and minerals your body requires.

Some of the best foods for your skin are:

Strawberries. Strawberries are very rich in vitamin C, and should be eaten regularly. Or make a berry mask and apply them topically.

Olive Oil. Olive oil is rich in antioxidants and is also anti-inflammatory. It reduces free radicals and adds moisture.

Green tea. Green tea is not only relaxing, it fights inflammation, is full of antioxidants, and may even reduce your risk of skin cancer.

Brazil nuts. Brazil nuts are rich in selenium, which works with other antioxidants to boost the immune system. Selenium also protects against sun damage and age spots.

 

Even with a rich, healthy diet, there is evidence that adding a nutritional supplement can benefit the appearance of skin. Here are some supplements that improve the look and quality of skin:

Conclusion

 

When taking any nutritional supplement, remember to take it along with food and a generous amount of water, as your skin needs to stay hydrated as well as your body. Facial steamers work beautifully to keep a youthful skin, and keep it hydrated at all times. Many supplements can be slightly difficult to digest, and cause upset on an empty stomach. Furthermore, some vitamins and minerals are water-soluble, and some are fat-soluble; if you take a supplement without the ability to digest and use the vitamins, then it will simply pass through the body without any benefit.

Finally, good hydration makes all the difference in the appearance of your skin, and in your overall health. Drinking adequate amounts of water throughout the day, every day, helps your body fully benefit from the nutrition in your diet, eliminate toxins, and moisturize from the inside.
