We are always looking for tips and tricks to increase the appearance of our skin and fight fine lines, wrinkles, and acne. Eating healthy is an important part of feeling well and keeping our bodies looking well, but did you know the right vitamins could have a profound effect on our skin?
Read on for our top vitamin picks for healthy skin and how to work them into your diet.
Reduce the signs of aging by upping your daily dose of antioxidants with vitamins C, E, and A and beta-carotene. All of these boost the immune system and reduce the damage caused by free radicals (which can change how skin cells are produced and increase the appearance of aging).
B3, found in beets, fish, and sunflower seeds, helps stabilize hormones and is a great option if you suffer from acne.
Omega-3 fatty acids, strengthen the outer layer of skin. Having a healthy outer layer means less toxins get into your system and damage the skin.
Add zinc, from meats, nuts and grains, to promote healing for wounds and to maintain collagen. Zinc will also reduce redness and inflammation.
Experts agree that the best way to get vitamins is through your diet—so choose a variety of vibrantly colored fruits and veggies to get a good dose of vitamins. Adding a munti-vitamin to your daily routine is a great idea as well, just remember to take after a meal with plenty of water to reduce discomfort.
