One of the rights of passage growing up for teens…
Radiant skin isn’t reserved for your favorite celebrities-we promise! Our skin has a lot of needs, of course you already know that. One of the interesting things about our skin is as much as we can take care of our skin externally with a healthy skin care routine it also requires certain vitamins and nutrients in order to obtain the results we desire. So many health and wellness experts are linking the relationship between what we eat and the way our skin looks. We know you’re ready to gain those radiant skin results you’ve been working so hard on, so we’re sharing the vitamins and nutrients for radiant skin you should be adding into your diet.
You may have noticed that many skin care products have started to include vitamin A in their ingredient list. The reason is because our skin really needs vitamin A to achieve the best results. Vitamin A is a nutrient that helps to protect our skin from a lot of damage, increase the appearance of our complexion and even protect our skin from being negatively impacted by bacteria. As you know, bacteria can be a major culprit in preventing us from achieving radiant skin-hello acne breakouts. We do suggest that you try adding skin care products into your routine that use vitamin A, but you’re also going to gain the best results when you consume vitamin A through your diet. Foods like carrots and papaya are found to be high sources of vitamin A.
Another vitamin that you’ve probably seen listed on skin care products is Vitamin C. We’ve all been told that vitamin C is a powerful vitamin for our immune system, and many experts encourage we take it to keep ourselves from getting sick too often. But vitamin C isn’t just great for our immune system, it’s also a vitamin to watch for your skin. If you’ve felt like you’re struggling to maintain radiant skin, vitamin C can help with that. In fact, vitamin C is so powerful that’s it’s said to help the collagen production in our skin. Collagen, as you know, is what keeps our skin youthful and free of aging signs. Part of having radiant skin means maintaining that youthful glow, this is why vitamin C should be on your list to add to your routine. Again, try incorporating skin care products that contain vitamin C but also make it a point to eat foods that are rich in vitamin C. Foods like red peppers and other veggies are great to start with.
Omega 3 fatty acids may sound like an odd nutrient to consider for your skin, but it’s incredibly beneficial when you consume it regularly. Omega 3 fatty acids provide our skin with a great anti-inflammatory property. Inflammation has been found to be one of the main culprits to many skin issues, which is why when we’re able to eliminate inflammation it’s helpful to help us obtain radiant skin. Taking omega 3 fatty acids in the form of supplements is helpful, but we also suggest adding in food sources as well.
