Do you suffer eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis or acne? Are you concerned about dryness, lines and signs of aging? These nutrients help purify, heal and support your skin from the inside!
Vitamin A helps control the amount of keratin in your skin to keep it soft. Vitamin A helps reduce the scaling associated with eczema and dermatitis and its anti-inflammatory properties that help relieve the redness from these conditions, as well as acne and psoriasis.
Vitamin C is your skin’s best friend! Vitamin C helps cleanse impurities from the body and is used to produce collagen - the skin’s connective tissue. If you have eczema or dermatitis, Vitamin C is a natural antihistamine that may reduce allergic flare-ups. Its anti-inflammatory properties help manage redness from dermatitis and acne too.
Vitamin E always gets a mention for skin health because it helps maintain collagen for skin elasticity. Popular in skincare products, Vitamin E supports healing, limits scar formation, and is a source of anti-aging antioxidants to boot!
Pantothenic acid stimulates cell growth, promotes healing and reduces inflammation. It supports regeneration of damaged skin, promotes healthy new cell growth and reduces inflammation to help you manage the symptoms and appearance of skin irritations.
Selenium is a mineral that may reduce the severity of psoriasis, protects the body from free radical damage – a cause of premature aging - and improves the activity of Vitamin E. Selenium is antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, and is another way you can reduce symptoms of inflamed skin conditions.
Bioflavonoids are super-antioxidants, powerful for healing and regeneration. They’ll help support your skin and general health by boosting the effects of Vitamin C.
Omega 3 also has anti-inflammatory properties that help ease inflammation, soothe skin’s appearance and help you keep it well hydrated.
