Beauty: Beauty

Beauty from the inside. Supplements for beauty

Beauty is skin deep, as we have heard for centuries. Everything we eat and drink, or for that matter, some things that we do not eat or drink, have an effect on our skin.



Some highly trained estheticians are so smart that they can tell you what you eat based on how your skin looks.

Poor nutrition is clearly visible on our skin especially as we age. Many vital nutrients are essential for the skin to regenerate, and therefore, to keep its radiance and tone. Let us review some of these nutrients and supplements:

Fats for the beauty of your skin: Essential fatty acids

With non-fat and low-fat craze of the 80s and 90s, many women deprive their skin of fats altogether. You need good fats for your skin: omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids. Theses oils help your skin fight inflammation, which is associated with many skin conditions such as acne, eczema and others.   You can get them on your food or buy supplements. 

We can get the omega-3 fatty acid from cold water fish and flaxseed oil or flax seeds themselves. You can also take a supplement that contains these fatty acids. In any case, get good quality oil. If you take flaxseed oil, always buy only cold press oil. 

Omega-6 essential fatty acids are more common. You can get them from primrose oil or borage oil. Other sources are eggs, poultry, some vegetable oils and whole grain breads.

You can also take a supplement of primrose oil or borage oil, preferably cold press.

Antioxidants for your skin

It is well known that the antioxidant vitamins such as A, C and E are great for our general health and our skin. They are used in many creams and skin care formulations. They fight free radicals, which make us old and sick. The antioxidants, in simple words, are the fighters that protect our body.

For you skin and hair health, make sure you are taking enough of these nutrients. You can easily get them from every day foods, but you may want to also take a supplement if you are not sure about your food intake.
