Are you in search of different ways to attain naturally a younger look and clear skin? The forthcoming supplements and vitamins have been proven time and time again scientifically to help with enhancing skin radiance, clearing up clogged pores, slowing down aging and calming skin inflammation. Read more to find about which specific supplements your skin needs and wants. Addressing those needs might lead to getting natural luminous skin.
Research shows a strong link between your daily habits, the nutrients your skin is getting daily to your complexion and overall skin condition.
Most of the nutrients which include probiotics, minerals, vitamins we can obtain from our daily diet and that is the way it should be. But realistically speaking reaching the optimum requirement daily through our diets alone isn’t possible to achieve very easily, our dietary options are often limited on a busy day schedule. There is a problem with relying on supplements because they cannot and should not be taken unless advised by a proper dietician and even the slightest of increases or deficiencies in doses can lead to dastardly side effects on the skin
That is why we shall only be discussing the supplements which are mostly found naturally.
- Vitamin A
Dermatologists usually propose vitamin A to people who tend to have acne. Vitamin A being a powerful antioxidant, lessens the secretory sebaceous glands size to limit the skins ability to produce oil, is recommended as such.
In case of the body having insufficient vitamin A, a build-up of dead skin cells occurs which simultaneously aids in clogging pores and resulting in acne breakouts. Vitamin A helps to reduce inflammation caused by the acne breakout and calms red swollen areas.
Vitamin a is naturally occurring in carrots, squash and broccoli whereas in meats it is found in beef and cod livers with the addition of salmon fish meat.
- Vitamin C
Vitamin C, known also as ascorbic acid, also acts as an antioxidant like vitamin C, which help in the fight against free radicals. They are compounds which are formed when bodies convert food into energy.
Vitamin C helps in enhancing the production of collagen and can repair the sun burnt skin when orally taken. Moreover it leaves a hydrating effect on the dry skin. Alongside these benefits vitamin C also helps with discoloured wounds and smoothing out scars and brown spots.
Vitamin C is usually found in citrus fruits such as oranges and lemons. Also in green leafy vegetables such as kale, broccoli and brussels sprouts.
- Omega 3 Fatty Acids
Omega 3 fatty acids are essential for the human body to maintain optimum health to ensure a stable lifestyle. The fatty acids help with skin redness and acne as they reduce inflammation due to them being great anti-inflammatory agents. They help a great deal if you suffer from psoriasis and other skin conditions as well.
Omega 3 fatty acids can be found in spinach, kale, walnuts, chia seeds, brussels sprouts and salad green flaxseeds, in case you rely on a natural diet.
If you think that your acne breakouts are connected to hormones and stress levels, then consider taking magnesium supplements after advising a doctor of course. Magnesium enhances the general appeal of the skin and helps in reducing skin disorders and acne as well.
The body distributes magnesium as a self defence mechanism against stress, but if our diet is lacking than the body requires supplements daily to give you the quantity that is required for clear skin.
The natural sources of magnesium mostly involve leafy greens, nuts and legumes, as well as whole grains and some fatty fish.
- Black seed oil
Black seed oil in this case is used usually more topically than orally in general. It is a very powerful antioxidant which enables it to tackle harmful free radicals hence eliminating the chances of lines, dark spots and bags under eyes from ever appearing on your skin due to its refreshing and revitalizing effects.
Moreover black seed oil or black seed cumin oil is a great anti-fungal agent helping against fungal infections and yeast. Black seed oil is added as an additional component to moisturizers to enhance skin vitality.
Anti-inflammatory properties of black seed oil aid against acne and help to banish bacteria in the wound healing process.
Conclusively I would like to discuss that all the supplements while found naturally and in supplement form come with their specific side effects which may worsen your skin rather than rejuvenate it. But black seed oil stands apart in this class as it has no side effects which hamper the skin and can be easily adapted into your daily routine whether it be topical or oral consumption.
