Three Nutrients to Feed Your Skin!
Whether you are a man or woman, a teenager or adult, or someone who works in front of a camera or behind the scenes; everyone wants their skin to look nice!
There are many that deal with debilitating skin issues such as acne, eczema, psoriasis etc., and of course these people are looking for solutions for healthier skin, however even if you don’t have a specific skin issue, there are ways we can feed the skin to insure we are keeping it at peak health!
Three Nutrients to Feed the Skin!
Collagen is a protein that makes up one third of the body’s entire protein content, making it the most abundant protein in humans! It’s responsible for the makeup of not only our skin, but also our hair, nails, and even our digestive tracts!
Because collagen is responsible for maintaining healthy skin elasticity and structure, adding it in your diet can be a simple and effective way to feed the skin!
We all know how important Vitamin C is for our immune systems, helping to protect us from catching a cold, but did you know it’s a healthy skin all-star!?
Vitamin C is responsible for upregulating collagen production, and as we just discussed, collagen supports the very makeup of our skin!
This all-star vitamin is also known as an antioxidant, meaning it helps in protecting the skin against cell damaging free radicals, as well as protecting us against sun damage!
Omega 3 is a type of unsaturated fatty acid that is found in high quantities in fish!
There are a plethora of reasons why fish oil supports healthy skin; it reduces inflammation, thus supporting the reduction of skin redness and acne pustules, it regulates the skins natural oil production, and it hydrates the skin to reduce dryness and flakiness!
Our skin is our largest organ, and the organ that takes on the most, as it is constantly being bombarded by outside environmental influences like weather and toxic substances we place upon it! So, remember to treat your skin with care, and feed it properly so that it grows strong and healthy!
