Skin Nutrition: Internal and Topical Solutions for Healthy Skin
You know that you need to nourish your skin to keep it as healthy as possible. But are you getting enough of the right nutrients from the foods you eat? Could you benefit from taking a supplement or trying topical vitamins?
Your skin is the largest organ in your body and serves many purposes like protecting internal organ systems, regulating body temperature, and essentially acts as an external digestive system secreting toxins from the body in the form of sweat and acne.
Drinking lots of water and eating plenty of fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants is good for your whole body, and especially your skin. Antioxidants and vitamins can curb the damage caused by unstable molecules known as free radicals. These molecules can harm skin cells and cause signs of aging.
Topical & Internal Nutrition
The key topical application vitamins for skin health are Vitamins A, C, D, E, and K. Their benefits are as follows:
Vitamin A – in the form of Retinyl Palmitate is a nourishing vitamin that helps strengthen the skin. In the form of Retinol, Retinoic Acid, and Retinaldehyde, vitamin A helps cells turn over quicker to exfoliate and allow fresh new cells to reach the surface. Treats acne, wound and acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines/wrinkles.
