9 Nutrients & Vitamins for Healthy Skin All Year Round
February 23, 2022
Skin care is vitally important no matter your gender or age. Not only is it the first thing most people notice about you, but your epidermis is also your body’s largest organ.
There are obvious ways to ensure healthy skin: Limit your exposure to the sun, wear sunscreen, stay hydrated, refrain from smoking, eat a healthy diet and minimize stress. These simple steps go a long way to keeping your skin from premature aging and disease.
Lotions, creams, exfoliants and moisturizers and other topicals are another way to make a noticeable improvement in the health and appearance of your skin. The key is to remain vigilant and consistent in your skincare routine – it takes daily attention for topicals to truly be as effective as possible.
But did you know there are some vitamins and nutrients that work inside out? If you want younger, healthier looking skin, try these nine supplements:
Biotin, also known as Vitamin B7, is an essential B vitamin that helps promote beautiful skin by reducing the death of skin cells. Biotin is also beneficial for healthy hair and nails. Havasu Nutrition’s Biotin Gummies are jam-packed with anti-aging properties that work on the cellular level to give your hair that natural shine. Just a single serving of our delicious strawberry-flavored Biotin Gummies gives your body 1667% daily value (5000 mcg) of Biotin, the correct quantity needed for optimal cellular health.
Collagen is a type of protein located in your skin, bones, joints and ligaments. As you age, your body’s production of collagen declines, so many doctors recommend collagen supplements to promote skin health. But not all collagen supplements are created equal. Collagen Gummies contain 50 mg of collagen per serving. Our delicious, berry-flavored gummies support skin elasticity and will give your skin that youthful glow.
Omega 3-6-9 Fatty Acids
Omega-3 fatty acids are a type of polyunsaturated fat, which your body can't make but needs to build cell walls. They also block a chemical that allows skin cancer to grow and spread. Omega + DHA Gummies help regulate the skin’s oil production, balance hydration and minimize the signs of aging. Perfect for those suffering rough dry skin! And the citrus-flavored gummies are delicious.
Did you know that the outer layer of your skin has five times more zinc than the layer directly underneath? Zinc promotes the healing of skin, especially after an injury. Zinc also acts as an antioxidant, protecting the skin from harmful UV rays. Ultimate Immune Defense Capsules are formulated for year-round antioxidant to protect your immunity. It also contains zinc for added cell protection.
We all know calcium is an excellent for building strong bones. But it also promotes cell regeneration and helps cell growth to keep your skin looking radiant and youthful. Calcium helps improve skin barrier function, which locks in moisture and protects the skin against pathogens.
Vitamin A, also known as retinol, promotes cell growth and can be used as an antiaging supplement. Most humans get enough Vitamin A in our regular diets, but some of us may suffer from Vitamin A deficiency – especially if we have digestive issues.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, protecting your body from free radicals. It may help lower the chances of skin cancer. Vitamin C can also help heal sores after injury.
Vitamin D protects the skin and improves cell function. It is one of the most effective anti-aging vitamins. It helps maintain the calcium levels in our bodies.
Similar to Vitamin C, Vitamin E is an antioxidant that protects your body from free radicals. Multivitamin Gummies are an excellent way to make sure you are getting all these vitamins to maintain overall health – and help keep your skin looking vibrant and youthful.
And don’t forget to hydrate!
