Which Nutrients Are You Offering Your Skin?

How many times have you wished that your skin was more elastic, smooth and silky to the touch? If your lotion isn’t doing enough, you may not be using a product with nutrients that are beneficial to your skin. That being said, there are a few key vitamins and ingredients you may want to look for next time you purchase a hydrating moisturizer to use on your body.

Vitamin C
You might already know that vitamin C is essential to your immune system, but did you know that it can also help your skin? Whole Health Education states that this vitamin may be able to reduce the consequences of sun exposure, which increases the risk of skin cancer. Ultraviolet rays are also renowned for causing unsightly wrinkles.

This nutrient continues to grow in popularity for a number of reasons. Not only can it be beneficial for the heart, but Natural News reports that omega-3 in lotion can also reduce inflammation on the skin. In addition, it can repair damage that has occurred to your skin over time.

Zinc plays a large role in how much oil is produced on the surface of the skin. If you’re sick of blemishes and breakouts, make sure you’re getting plenty of this nutrient!

My favorite beauty product is... - Anything containing sea salt. It's probably the most amazing exfoliant I've ever used and it leaves my skin feeling fresh and smoother than ever. Can't leave the house without my... - Lip gloss. The rest of the day can be a total bust, but if I have a great gloss on I feel like at least I've done one thing right! I would describe my style as... - Definitely au naturale. While I love exploring new shades of eyeshadow and liner on special occasions, for me the most important part of any beauty regimen is keeping my skin clear and blemish-free.
