Having beautiful skin is not just for appearance alone. Although beautifully radiant skin can help with your confidence, it's also important health-wise. Your skin protects your body from the many viruses and bacteria you are exposed to daily. This is important especially now during the pandemic. It also protects you from the sun's rays, specifically ultraviolet light, that can damage cells. The quality of your skin is also a reflection of your inner health. Rough and bumpy skin can be a result of a Vitamin C deficiency, while wrinkles and dull-looking dry skin can be a result of a lack of Vitamin E. Ever notice why we find people with beautiful smooth skin magnetic? That’s because we are drawn not only to their physical beauty, but subconsciously to their health and vitality as well.
Having a skin care routine, exercising, or just focusing on your general outside appearance definitely helps with healthier skin, but you can also achieve smooth and soft skin by taking the proper vitamins!
Let’s zero in on the vitamins that are essential to skin health: Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and zinc. These vitamins have their own unique properties that are super beneficial for us supermoms. But before we list down the examples on how they work together, let’s run down their individual benefits first.
VITAMIN C: NOT JUST FOR IMMUNITY
Vitamin C (Sodium Ascorbate) is a water soluble nutrient usually known for boosting immunity, but it’s also a vitamin that plays an important role in keeping your skin healthy. Vitamin C is clinically proven to have a wide range of clinical applications thanks to its antioxidant, anti-aging, anti-pigmentary properties.
This skin-aiding super vitamin offers many benefits, but the body doesn't produce Vitamin C, so you need to get it from fruits and vegetables like berries, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, broccoli and spinach.
Keep that in mind when you’re about to have a snack during break time or when you’re out shopping for groceries.
VITAMIN E: FREE RADICAL FIGHTER
Vitamin E (d-alpha tocopheryl succinate) is a fat-soluble, essential nutrient that helps in giving you healthy skin. This vitamin has moisturizing abilities and is known as a very potent antioxidant.
Antioxidants are substances that can prevent or slow damage to cells caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable atoms acquired through environmental pollution, toxic metals, cigarette smoke, and pesticides, which add damage to our body system. Although the body produces Vitamin E, you can still find them in foods like hazelnuts, almonds, avocados and other fruits. So get to eating them nuts and fruits, ladies!
ZINC: THE TRACE MINERAL
Zinc is an essential mineral necessary for protein building, cell growing, and wound repair. Since Zinc cannot be stored by the body, you have to supplement it with vitamins or get them from the food you eat.
THE COMBINATION OF C, E, and Zinc
Vitamin C, E, and Zinc help each other out when it comes to having beautiful and healthy skin. These antioxidant vitamins fight oxidation damage in skin cells DNA. They are the key elements in the structural proteins in the body. These vitamins are also important to the integrity and regeneration of your skin cells.
Vitamin C and E are required for the formation of collagen, and medical studies have found that they decrease wrinkling of the skin. Vitamin E reduces inflammation and helps wound healing, while Vitamin C enhances the immune response, so taking these vitamins at the same time helps in fighting off free radicals. Zinc also plays a role in collagen formation because of its protein building properties.
According to some doctors, you can make your physiologic age one year younger by taking a normal amount of Vitamin C and E a day, so let’s not forget to eat those fruits and leafy greens!
These vitamins are also found in sunblocks and sunscreens.
