Eat your way to glowing skin you say? Now that sounds like my kind of diet! Over the past month, I have attended a number of training courses, seminars & workshops all about skin!
The thing that stood out to me the most was the huge emphasis that was placed on properly nourishing your body from the inside out in order to achieve the healthy, radiant & youthful skin that we all want.
So please grab a cuppa & read about some best beauty supplements for the skin & how to include them in your daily diet!
1. VITAMIN A
Vitamin A is an essential nutrient for the skin as it helps support collagen production, controls Keratin production (Keratin is the substance that makes up most of our skin cells) & helps keep skin strong.
Like many essential nutrients, our body needs them to function however it relies on our diet to source them. Vitamin A very rarely needs to be supplemented & is readily available in a wide range of food sources including pumpkin, sweet potato, eggs, leafy greens & paw.
2. VITAMIN B COMPLEX
When we talk about Vitamin B Complex we are talking about a number of different forms of Vitamin B, many of which are essential for healthy skin. Vitamin B Complex will include Vitamin B-3, Vitamin B-5 & Vitamin B-6, just to name a few!
Vitamin B Complex is needed for the skin to be able to regulate cell turnover & sebum production as well as efficiently utilize essential fatty acids. Vitamin B can be found in meat, eggs, seafood, nuts & seeds & can be tricky to get from diet along & often needs to be supplemented.
