Vitamins for Healthy Skin

Top 3 Vitamins for Healthy SkinMost vitamins are not taken during the HCG Diet low-calorie phase. The only vitamins Dr. Simeons allowed were Vitamins C, D and Calcium. However, once you get to maintenance, Phase 3, you'll want to make sure you're getting the proper vitamins to maintain healthy skin. Dermatologists say that a healthy, balanced diet is crucial for optimal skin health. While this is true, you can also take vitamins to help you achieve beautiful skin. With so many confusing headlines out there, which vitamins are the most important?


For glowing, healthy skin, we need to nourish it from within. We often hear about the latest 'superfoods' celebrated in the media, but the truth is that no single food will guarantee perfect skin. Having a variety of foods and vitamins is the key.


The reality of modern, busy lifestyles means that we often struggle to consume our recommended five veggies or fruits a day. Many people find they require an extra nutritional boost in the form of multivitamin supplements.


Missing out on vital vitamins and minerals can really take its toll on the skin. It's important to be aware of what it requires to stay in top condition. Even the most expensive beauty products cannot compensate for an unhealthy diet and lifestyle, so take note of these top three vitamins that are essential for skin health -- A, C and E. Just remember 'ACE'!


  1. Vitamin A


Vitamin A can be found in eggs, liver, milk, and fortified breakfast cereals. The recommended daily intake for adults is 700-900 mg per day. While deficiency in the Western world is rare, those with poor skin may benefit from an increased amount of vitamin A in their diet due to restorative properties that help to maintain and repair tissues. Nourishing your skin with moisturizers that contain concentrated Vitamin A can help to keep it feeling soft and smooth, with a healthy appearance.


  1. Vitamin C


Vitamin C is not stored in the body, so we need to consume it regularly to maintain healthy skin. Good sources include citrus fruits, kiwi fruit, broccoli, strawberries, and tomatoes. The recommended adult intake is 75-90mg per day, although some experts recommend higher doses to boost immunity. Vitamin C helps the skin by aiding the production of collagen and elastin, preventing premature aging and reducing the effects of sun damage. As an anti-oxidant, it fights the free radicals that damage skin tissues to promote a healthy, nourished appearance.


  1. Vitamin E


The recommended vitamin E intake is around 15mg per day, which can be sourced from nuts, seeds, and oils. Its powerful anti-oxidant qualities help to maintain skin health and promote a radiant complexion. The only problem is that your body cannot produce it, so we must consume it.  We can take it in in the form of food or nutritional supplements. Many beauty products contain vitamin E as it has excellent moisturizing properties that help to keep the skin in good condition, even when applied topically. For silky skin, try a nourishing body oil enriched with Vitamin E to moisturize dry areas.
