Not Just for Eating: The Benefits of Antioxidants and Vitamins for Your Skin

vitamins and mineralsIt’s no surprise that the more vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants your body receives, the healthier it will be. And by consuming foods and beverages (yes, those green smoothies are doing your body good), you can help to give your body the energy and nutrients it needs in order to stay strong and healthy. But did you know that those same vitamins and antioxidants that are helping your body to stay healthy, can actually help your skin to be healthy as well? Read on to learn more about the benefits of antioxidants and vitamins for your skin.

Vitamin C
Yes it is true that as soon as you start to feel the onset of a cold of the flu then it’s important to pump your body full of vitamin C, but did you know that vitamin C can also do wonders for your skin? Specifically, the antioxidant properties of vitamin C help promote the production of collagen which can help you to look and feel younger. Additionally, vitamin C may also help aid against sun damage caused by UV rays.

Antioxidants
Free radicals are what play a large role in the overall aging process and when antioxidants are unavailable, it makes it easier for free radicals to cause your skin to wrinkle and sag. However, by purchasing skin care products that contain antioxidants, you can help to neutralize the effects that free radicals can have on your face— leaving you with a more youthful looking glow and overall complexion.

Vitamin E
Vitamin E oil in particular is especially good for the health of your skin. Similar to the way antioxidants works, vitamin E oil works to block free radicals which can cause your skin to age and wrinkle.
