How supplements support our appearance from the inside

Our skin reflects the overall health of the body. We know that vitamins can affect skin health, but which vitamins really work? What are the best vitamins for skin care? How do supplements support our skin's beauty from within?

Vitamin C and vitamin E are two powerful antioxidants that help protect cells from damage. Both vitamins occur frequently, as ingredients in beauty products and cosmetics.

Vitamin C is the best serum known to improve skin texture through hydration. This ultimately reduces the appearance of fine lines. Vitamin C also has anti-inflammatory benefits, reducing redness and flare-ups. It provides added value by protecting the skin from the sun's UVA and UVB rays. A body with sufficient amounts of vitamin C heals quickly from wounds. Aarja Health's Vitamin C 500 contains zinc , which also provides maintenance of healthy hair and healthy nails.

Vitamin C is found in the outer and inner layers of our skin, called the epidermis and dermis. It acts as a building block for collagen, the naturally occurring protein in our bodies, which is essential for skin, connective tissue and joints. Collagen makes up many percent of the proteins in our bodies. After 30 years, as our bodies age, the production of collagen declines.

When considering a collagen supplement, use proprietary hydrolyzed collagen type II for easy absorption, such as Aarja Health's Collagen with Pine Bark . Each tablet contains 20 mg of pine bark extract, which comes from pure forests in Finnish Lapland and is full of natural antioxidants. Scandinavians have been brewing pine needle tea for centuries to get these healthy benefits.

Vitamin E is praised for its ability to fight free radicals, by protecting us from skin irritants, including air pollution and cigarette smoke. The antioxidants in vitamin E protect the skin against damage from the sun's rays. The skin's natural oils or sebum give the skin a moisturizing balance. However, dry skin can get a boost with a vitamin E supplement. Like vitamin C, vitamin E has strong anti-inflammatory properties.

Vitamin D is known as the sunshine vitamin. The skin absorbs it by staying outdoors. The kidneys and liver make it possible for vitamin D to spread throughout the body. The outer layer of skin cells or keratinocytes are the same cells that form vitamin D. This vitamin is absolutely necessary for skin cell growth. Studies have shown that it can help clear up skin conditions such as psoriasis or eczema.

It is important to take vitamin D because many of us do not spend enough time outside, especially during the winter months. Try Vitamin D3 + Lingonberry for another healthy and tasty chewable supplement from Aarja Health. Each tablet contains 100 mcg (4000 IU) of bioavailable vitamin D3 for easy absorption.

Adding healthy fats to your diet, such as Omega-3 krill oil , will give your skin a beauty boost. With its ability to relieve dryness, reduce redness and inflammation , Omega-3 krill oil can lead to supple and radiant skin. While most Omega-3 supplements come from fish and shellfish, there are vegan forms like Aarja Health's Vegan Omega-3 , which uses oil from microalgae.

The introduction of the nourishing vitamins C and E as well as collagen supplements and Omega-3 are the first steps towards healthy skin. Beauty is truly built from within.
