Are Vitamins important for your health? Of course they are. Vitamin C, is thought to help ease the symptoms of flu’s and colds. Vitamin D is essential for us to get, in order to help keep our bones strong. And though there are different methods of getting Vitamin D, a vitamin pill is the most effective way to ensure you’re getting the required amounts. Especially with women – who can suffer from Osteoporosis. But what about for improving skin texture?


Vitamins C & E are proven anti-aging agents. Whether you take it both internally or externally – both help keep your skin looking younger. That’s because they both protect against skin damage. Especially if applied topically, they can help prevent the skin damage we get from Free Radicals which causes us to age. Vitamin C also helps increase collagen production.


Vitamin A is not only good for your eyes, but helps improve your skin texture. Noticing your skin has become more rough, flakey, and drier than usual? It could be because you’re lacking Vitamin A. If you apply it to your skin in a vitamin-enriched cream that’s even better than taking a pill. It can help reduce acne and reverse the damage caused by sun exposure and age.


Vitamin B is great for your skin, hair, and nails. Biotin and Niacin are the most important in terms of skin. Vitamin B can help reduce inflammation and help your skin retain moisture. This will keep your skin plump and help conceal your wrinkles.


Vitamin K is a curved ball that people don’t usually use, but it’s been known to help reduce any dark rings around the eyes.


What about minerals? Though a mineral deficiency may be rare, you may want to wash your face with mineral water to help soothe any inflammation. 3 to keep in mind are selenium, copper, and zinc. Selenium can help reduce your chances of skin cancer and reduce sunburn damage. Copper promotes elastin production, and zinc can regulate oil production and help prevent and resolve acne.
