Who doesn’t want younger, smoother, softer skin? After spending countless dollars on products that promise great results, where do we draw the line? After all, dieting, exercising, refraining from smoking or drinking and living an active lifestyle can keep our look youthful. Even drinking gallons of water can keep our skin tight. But with age and the outdoors, our skin has the tendency to damage. So, who is ready for a natural alternative to keeping your beauty together? Are you aware vitamins and minerals hold the key for glowing skin? If not, today is the day you learn about how vitamins we take on the daily can keep our skin healthy too. Today’s lesson is all about the beauty of vitamins. Here is my run down of vitamins that are perfect for keeping your beauty in perfect harmony.
- Research has found that vitamins C and E, as well as selenium, can help protect the skin against sun damage and skin cancer. They may actually reverse some of the discoloration and wrinkles associated with aging.
- Coenzyme Q10 is a natural antioxidant in the body that helps the cells grow and protects them from the ravages of cancer. A drop in natural levels of coenzyme Q10 that occurs in our later years is thought to contribute to aging skin.
- Green tea and yes, even chocolate, just might help improve your skin. Research suggests that the flavonoids in green tea are strong antioxidants that may help protect the skin from cancer and inflammation.
- The B vitamins are essential for cells throughout the body, including skin cells. It’s important to get enough of foods rich in B vitamins, such as chicken, eggs, and fortified grain products, because a B vitamin deficiency can lead to dry, itchy skin. Research is showing that some B vitamins are beneficial when applied to the skin.
These are just a few beauty vitamins that can keep your skin amazing. Now ask yourself, “did I take my vitamins today?”
