Can Vitamin Supplements Improve Your Skin?
The human body is made up of millions of tiny living units called cells that exhaust and repair themselves. This cycle is dependent on the nourishments of key vitamins and minerals that we supply our body with.
Our skin is made up of the same living units called skin cells. Every skin cell subjects itself to the harsh outside environment to protect your body from being infiltrated. Like all cells in our body, our skin cells get damaged but they also have the power to repair and rejuvenate given that we provide them with the right vitamins and minerals.
Vitamins help…Ooops! Let me rephrase that; Vitamins are vital to the function of every organ in the human body. The skin, being the biggest of all organs, will benefit from any vitamin supplementation.
Here are some of the most helpful vitamins supplements for your best skin.
1. Vitamin A
If your skin is scaly and dry then, you are probably deficient in Vitamin A.
People who are suffering for reoccurring acne are recommended to take high doses of Vitamin A. Vitamin A helps in rebuilding skin tissues and it’s advisable to take extra dosage for repairing broken skin like scrapes, cuts, wounds and all other forms of skin damage.
Vitamin A is known to reduce facial lines, wrinkles and dull dry skin.
Good sources of Vitamin A are eggs, milk, carrots, pumpkin and liver.
2. Vitamin E
Vitamin E is the most popular vitamin connected with skin health. Vitamin E focuses on repairing skin tissues damaged by pollution and sun exposure.
Vitamin E reduces the appearance of age spots, wrinkles, stretch marks and lines.
Vitamin E can be found in olives, leafy greens, wheat germ, almonds and peanuts.
3. Vitamin C
Vitamin C will help you battle the signs of aging. It stimulates the production of collagen; the protein that is responsible in making your skin supple, smooth and youthful.
Vitamin C can be found in broccoli, cauliflower, tomato, brussel sprouts and cucumber.
4. Vitamin B Complex
Vitamin B1 boosts circulation which is vital to skin health. It gives your skin its glow.
Vitamin B complex can be found in egg yolks, nuts and raisins.
5. Vitamin D
Vitamin D plays an important role in skin protection and rejuvenation. It contributes to skin cell growth, repair and metabolism. It optimizes the skin’s ability to destroy free radicals that causes premature aging.
The human body produces its own Vitamin D and it also comes from the sun.
Our skin is our first defense against the harmful environment. The function of the skin is to protect the inner organs. That is why the skin is considered to be the strongest organ of all.
One of the major threats that our skin faces are the UV rays from the sun. Overexposure to the sun causes damage. Though the skin has the ability to heal and repair itself, it can only do so if it’s is provided with the building blocks for repair. The major role of vitamin supplementation is to ensure that the skin will be able to handle the damage and return the skin to its previous healthy condition.
Everyone can benefit from vitamin supplementation for their skin’s health. Vitamin supplementation can work 2 ways; orally and topically.
Vitamins that are taken orally will be used for the needs of the entire body, the skin just being one of them.
Topical application works best for the specific needs of the skin. That is why most facial and skin creams, if not all, contain the essential vitamins mentioned.
These vitamins are blended with other natural ingredients to make the revitalizing and rejuvenating properties of each vitamin more effective in their application to the skin.
Anyone can apply these natural vitamin rich skin creams on their own but the most soothing and comfortable way to apply them is through the gentle and comforting services of a facial spa where there are able and qualified skin care specialists who know what’s best for your skin condition.
Massage Envy Spa is one of those which use the anti-aging benefits of natural ingredients and vitamins through the use of the highest quality Murad Health Skin Facial products.
Their Environmental Shield Vitamin C Facial Cream reduces the appearance of unwanted pigmentation and restores skin elasticity by making full use of the anti-aging benefits of Vitamin C.
Murad applied a patented infusion technology to deliver the pure Vitamin C directly to the skin thereby brightening and restoring the skin’s natural radiance and clarity.
Aside from this Vitamin C Shield, Massage Envy also offers Clarifying Enzyme for Acne Control, Anti-Aging Facial Creams and Exfoliation Creams that are all enhanced with natural ingredients and vitamins.
By harnessing the anti-aging properties of the popular vitamins, everyone has the chance to turn back the hands of time and have radiant, youthful skin.
