Why Your Skin Needs A Daily Vitamin
Written by Kerry Benjamin
As you probably already know, one of the keys to clear skin is a healthy diet. The quality of our skin is reflected by the foods we choose to eat; Too much fast food and sugar are sure to leave us with oily or dull, spotty skin. Whereas a diet filled with fruits, veggies, nuts, and fish can lead to a bright, glowing complexion. However, it’s not always easy to get the right vitamins we need to achieve that healthy appearance from food alone. That’s where a multi-vitamin comes to the rescue! Here is the low-down on 4 of the most effective vitamins for healthy skin. I know that this works because when my clients are stressed, traveling or not eating the best foods or taking vitamins it shows on their skin every time.
Want to reduce lines and wrinkles, fade brown spots, control acne, and smooth roughness? Vitamin A will do all that. This vitamin is an absolute necessity; without enough of it, your skin may look dry and flaky.
Vitamin B Complex
Vitamin B complex has anti-inflammatory properties and can even out skin tone. It also contains the nutrient biotin, which we know can help grow healthier and stronger hair, skin and nails. If you aren’t getting enough vitamin B complex in your diet, it could lead to dermatitis; a condition in which skin becomes red, swollen, and sore.
To help smooth and firm skin, fade brown spots, and to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, and discoloration, Vitamin C is a must. Get enough Vitamin C and you could even see a big improvement in sun damage. Not only is it good for your overall health (Vitamin C has been known to fight colds), but when used on the skin, vitamin C can help collagen production.
Vitamin E benefits include reducing the appearance of scars and rough, dry skin. To keep skin looking supple and soft, make sure you get a good amount of this vitamin. It can quench dryness and help skin retain its natural moisture. When taken before sun exposure, skin is less red, swollen, and dry. Vitamin E even neutralizes damaging free radicals in the body.
There’s a reason the saying “You are what you eat” exists. What you choose to put into your body will reflect itself on your skin. Taking a daily vitamin filled with Vitamins A, B complex, C, and E can lead to a much healthier skin appearance as well as a healthy body in general!
