The results that vitamins have on your body can be seen from the inside out and from the outside in. Consuming vitamins replenish your skin from the inside, while applying vitamins restore your skin from the outside. Daily, the skin is affected by many factors including natural aging, sun exposure, and pollution and chemicals in the environment. Your skin needs a variety of vitamins, taken in a variety of ways to keep it supple and healthy against natural wear over time.
Let’s start with vitamin A, also known as retinol. This vitamin has many anti-aging benefits, and works as an antioxidant. As free radicals enter the skin through toxins, which accelerates aging, vitamin A works actively to protect against damage.
Vitamin C is another anti-aging fighter, but works differently than vitamin A. It shields the skin from UV rays that sunscreen tends to miss. It also aids in collagen synthesis. Applying vitamin C to the skin immediately provides smooth and firm skin, as well. You can find various skin care products with vitamin C in our Lemon Plus Vitamin C Skin Care Line.
To ease dry skin, and get extra UV protection, vitamin E is the way to go. Vitamin E also acts as an antioxidant, which helps the skin stay youthful and vibrant. It absorbs harmful UV rays, which works well with the shielding effects of Vitamin C. Vitamin E can be found in our My Natural Beauty Skin Tone Olive Oil Body Crème. This crème is specifically blended with Certified Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, which transforms the skin.
Don’t forget about vitamin D! Vitamin D is essential for a healthy body. It seeps into the skin from sun exposure, and helps your bones absorb calcium more efficiently. However, limit your sun exposure to 10-15 minutes per day. If you go over that amount, make sure you apply sunscreen or have other protective measures against damaging rays. Just enough sun is beneficial for the body, but too much sun is destructive to the skin.
