Nutrients for the Skin

Happy Monday ya’ll !

Who doesn’t want beautiful skin, right ?

Nutrition and great skin are very much related and some of the nutrients that play an important role in your complexion are vitamins. I personally have seen a marked improvement in my skin since I started supplementing religiously. Many have commented on how my skin looks way better now !

Here are some of the essential vitamins for great skin and how to incorporate them into your diet.

Vitamin A
You might be lacking in Vitamin A if your skin has been feeling scaly and dry. Vitamin A is also good for individuals who are suffering from acne. Vitamin A helps the skin rebuild tissues and is also a great anti-aging nutrient. So if you wish to keep lines, wrinkles, dull skin and other skin aging symptoms at bay then Vitamin A is for you ! Good sources of Vitamin A include eggs, leafy greens, milk, carrots, pumpkins, liver and more.
Vitamin E
Vitamin E is perhaps the most well-known vitamin that is essential for healthy skin. Like I have elaborated in one of my previous posts, Vitamin E is an effective antioxidant that helps fight free radicals in your body. Vitamin E is an important anti-aging nutrient. Appearance of age spots, wrinkles, stretch marks and lines are reduced by applying Vitamin-E rich products. Vitamin E can also be found in foods like olives, sunflower seeds, peanuts, almonds, wheat germ and leafy greens.

Vitamin C 
Vitamin C is also an effective antioxidant. It also stimulates the production of collagen in your skin. Collagen is the protein responsible for making your skin supple. Most fruits are good sources of Vitamin C so try to make fruits a staple addition to your everyday diet. Vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, tomato, brussel sprouts and cucumber are also good sources of this vitamin.

Vitamin B Complex
B Vitamins should also be added to your diet if you wish to achieve healthy skin. Vitamin B1, for instance, boosts circulation in the body and gives your skin a certain glow. If you’re a woman taking birth control pills then you are at risk of Vitamin B1 deficiency. Egg yolks, nuts and raisins are great sources of Vitamin B1. Niacin of Vitamin B3 helps your skin receive plenty of oxygen, which prevents development of acne among other benefits. Niacin-rich foods include tomatoes, broccoli and carrots.
