In recent years, there has been a lot of important new research about the power of vitamins and minerals that can aid in giving aging skin a healthy and more youthful appearance. As you grow older, the damage caused by over exposure to the sun's rays and other environmental pollutants can cause tissue damage. The end result is often a loss of collagen and elasticity of the skin on your face, necks and hands. But, according to the American Academy of Dermatology, supplementing your intake or applying a healthy skin cream that contains the essential nutrients and antioxidants your body needs can make a major difference in the way your skin looks and feels.
From skin disorders to a healthy complexion, your skin is a reflection of what is going on inside your body. Unfortunately, today's lifestyles seldom provide the dietary consumption to support good skin nutrition. So which nutrients are needed for healthier, younger looking skin? Although nothing can beat a well-balanced diet, regular exercise and plenty of rest, researchers have identified several substances that are excellent nutrition for the skin whether ingested or applied topically. These include but are certainly not limited to: Vitamin C, Vitamin A, selenium, hyaluronic acid and essential fatty acids.
If your skin is dry and prone to inflammation, white heads and black heads, you may be lacking the essential fatty acids frequently found in omega 3 fish oils (omega 3 DHA and omega 3 EPA). When your vitamin A levels drop, you're likely to see an increase in fine lines, wrinkles, acne and a dry, flaky complexion. Topical creams containing vitamin A can help to reverse the signs of sun damage and chronologic aging. Products containing vitamin C are used to reduce the damage caused by free radicals by acting as an antioxidant that keeps your skin supple and encourages the production of new collagen. Hyaluronic acid acts a kind of glue that helps to hold skin cells together and is most effective in making skin feel smoother and tighter.
