Vitamins for skin
Monday, June 04, 2012
Once the baby-soft years are over and adolescence kicks in, your skin will need proper care and nourishment to look and feel healthy and last you into your middle-age in top condition.
The number one factor in developing and maintaining great skin is your diet. Perhaps many of you do not want to hear that. In this day and age of instant gratification we think we can chomp away on fatty snacks and sugary drinks and then simply google some quick solution to our health woes. Sorry, it does not work like that. It certainly is a cliche but the fact remains that your body is a temple and you will look and feel the way you treat it.
Having said that, there are some steps you can take to help you on the way to firm and better skin in the form of creams and emollients that specifically contain vitamins for skin care and health.
For example, vitamin E's skin benefits include reduction of sun-induced skin wrinkling, treatment of sunburn (erythema) and antioxidant prevention of premature skin aging due to 'free radical' pollution. Many skin care products in fact routinely include vitamin E in their formulae for its distinct antioxidant activity which is an important part in nurturing good skin.
The family of B vitamins also have several benefits for skin. B12 (Folic acid) in particular has been shown to have strong skin regenerative effects such as moisturising, prevention of premature wrinkle formation, diminishment of existing wrinkles and relief from chapped and burnt skin damaged by prolonged exposure to the sun.
So whether you choose to improve your diet or unleash a skin care regime that includes topical application of vitamin creams specially formulated for skin health and beauty, remember that success is unlikely to achieved overnight. Give time to your health initiatives and you will benefit not only on the surface but within as well. vitaminsforskin.c
