The next level of skincare

Our skin is a direct reflection our overall health. Everything from how well hydrated we are, to how well our liver is working to eliminate toxins. Even how healthy our gut and digestive system is functioning can influence the freshness and quality of our skin. Let’s take an inside look at the next level of skincare, discovering some of the more important nutrients to use internally to support your skin health.

Vitamin C and Collagen 

Antioxidants work as a natural defence mechanism to protect skin cells against damage that can occur from UV rays, toxins, stress and poor diet just to name a few. One of the best antioxidants for the skin is the very humble vitamin C. While it might not seem like a glamour nutrient, vitamin C is important for the production of collagen, contributing to normal collagen formation for the normal function of skin, while also contributing to cell protection from free radical damage. Collagen is important for overall skin health, providing skin with its tensile strength and firmness. See Collagen Gold and Collagen Forte 

    Zinc

    Also an antioxidant, zinc is commonly combined with vitamin C for the beneficial role they both play in skin health and wound healing. Zinc is present in all body tissue, supporting connective tissue health, an important contributor to overall skin health. See Vitamin C 1000 and Zinc Forte + C

      Vitamin E

      Likely one of the best-known, most powerful antioxidants is vitamin E. A fat-soluble vitamin, vitamin E is stored away in the liver when we’re not using it. When needed, vitamin E supports skin health by reducing free radicals formed in the body. Vitamin E can also help to relieve itchy skin and reduce the symptoms of mild eczema and dermatitis.

        Biotin

        Like collagen, keratin is another protein that plays a role in skin health by its influence on cell growth and renewal. An important nutrient for keratin production is biotin, a member of the B vitamin family that often flies under the radar without receiving the accolades it deserves. In addition to skin health, biotin is also a great nutrient to support hair and nail health. See Biotin 3mg
