It’s tough to get a balanced diet with our chaotic schedules and our busy lifestyles. But we underestimate how much a healthy, balanced diet can contribute to our overall sense of well-being.
A diet rich in certain key vitamins can boost our immune system, help in weight-loss, and keep our skin looking young well beyond our youth. Feeling and looking young requires a lot more work than topical ointments and skin regimens. Boosting your body’s functions with vitamins can help you keep away things like acne, scars, wrinkles, and the dark spots around your eyes.
Common Causes of Skin Damage
Over time, our bodies stop producing the nutrients that keep skin fresh and youthful. Collagen production decreases, making it more difficult for skin to stay perky. A weakening immune system isn’t as likely to flush oil out of the body or repair marks from acne. There are plenty of other factors that weigh in on the condition of our skin, namely
When we stress ourselves out (work, school, kids, relationships, etc.), it takes a toll on our body. An increase in cortisol causes the skin to produce more oil and may make breakouts harder to clear away once they appear. Stress can also have an effect on your collagen levels and other factors that keep skin elastic.
Lack of Sleep
Our body needs to recharge and reenergize, and without that proper resting period it will begin slowly shutting down functions. Again, cortisol is majorly to blame here. Our bodies respond to a lack of sleep by increasing cortisol levels to keep us going.
Despite skin cancer being an aggressive and very real threat, many people refuse to put sunscreen on to protect their skin outside. Using intense face washes and creams, not using moisturizers, tanning in the sun––these things all cause a breakdown of essential functions under the skin, which can leave behind unsightly skin damage.
Top 4 Vitamins For Healthier Skin
If you want to give your skin a boost of vitality and restoration, then you should consider investing in certain key vitamins. Below, we’ll discuss how these four vitamins combined hold the solution to all your skin troubles:
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, which means that it helps protect your body from the free radicals that deteriorate our cells over time. Preventing the free radicals from doing their dirty work can mean less wrinkles and less drying out. Vitamin C can also help repair skin that’s already been damaged by the sun or from poor upkeep as well as strengthen collagen for stronger, more youthful skin.
You might recognize Vitamin D as the textbook nourishment from the sun. It’s true that we get this vitamin in our skin when it absorbs sunlight, the ultraviolet radiation stimulating production of Vitamin D. However, everyone’s skin reacts differently to sun exposure and can be offset by factors like age, pigmentation, season, and time of day. Too much can be a bad thing, and too little can, too. For example, besides strengthening our skin cells, Vitamin D can also play a part in bone health.
To counter effect the damage caused to our skin by sun exposure, Vitamin E acts like both a shield and a sponge at once to absorb radiation and prevent it from doing harm. Vitamin E acts a lot like Vitamin C, as it’s another powerful antioxidant cleansing the body of free radicals. Enough Vitamin E in your diet (or through vitamin treatments) can help prevent wrinkles and discoloration of the skin.
Vitamin K helps our blood clot when we’re cut, prevent us from bleeding out. It helps heal the body when it’s hurt and prevents bruising and discoloration. It may also serve a purpose in preventing stretch marks and spider veins in addition to red spots or dark spots that can appear sporadically. You can get healthy does of Vitamin K from leafy vegetables if you incorporate them into your daily diet.
