I have had a lot of questions lately about topical products for the skin. We have been conditioned to think that moisturizer cream is the fix-it-all for many skin problems, ignoring the inner balance in our body of nutrients that affect skin health from the inside out.
Topical products can be effective, but it is when a good naturally-based moisturizer is combined with a healthy internal environment that we can see the fastest results.
A myriad of scientific studies show that vitamins and minerals in all forms play an integral role in overall healthy skin and complexion, whether the source is in the form of a supplement, the food choices you make, or the very skin care products you choose.
"Your skin is the fingerprint of what is going on inside your body, and all skin conditions, from psoriasis to acne to aging, are the manifestations of your body's internal needs, including its nutritional needs," says Georgiana Donadio, PhD, DC, MSc, founder and director of the National Institute of Whole Health in Boston.
I have said this for years and years, your skin is the largest organ of the body and it is also the largest detoxification organ as well. Things often go awry on the skin because of something awry inside.
"There is a lot of important new research showing tremendous power of antioxidants in general, and in some specific nutrients in particular that can make an important difference in the way your skin looks and feels -- and even in how well it ages," says nutritional supplement expert Mary Sullivan, RN, co-founder of Olympian Labs.
"When combined with a good diet, the right dietary supplements can help keep your skin looking not only healthy, but also years younger." Let's take a look at vitamin C a "super nutrient" for the skin today.
Vitamin C - Some call it sunshine in tablet form! The power of vitamin C to counter the effects of sun exposure and damage. This vitamin works by reducing the damage caused by free radicals, which are harmful byproducts of exposure sunlight, smoke, and air pollution.
Free radicals destroy and oxidize collagen and elastin, the very fibers that support the skins structure, causing wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation, sagging, and other signs of aging.
Your diet needs to always include plenty of vitamin C rich foods (citrus and vegetables, among others), which can replace the loss of the vitamin through the skin.
You can also take vitamin C supplements, up to 500 to 1,000 milligrams of per day safely, and in some instances where health or skin is impaired 1,500 (always check with your doctor). Vitamin C when combined with vitamin E can also protect and reverse the damage to the skin from sun exposure.
There are also topical vitamin C creams and serums to encourage collagen production, just as your body does naturally. The key to this working is to use a formulation containing the L-ascorbic acid form of vitamin C, the only one that can penetrate skin layers and make the repairs.
There is so much to know about role these critical nutrients play in your overall health and your skin. I will be talking about other important skin and health nutrients that play a major role in skin health over the coming weeks.
