Take a Holistic Approach to Skin Health and Glow From the Inside Out

The skin is the body's biggest organ. It prevents the spread of disease, keeps body temperature steady, and even helps vitamins from being synthesized. Even though most of us are more interested in learning how to keep skin looking good than actually keeping it healthy, maintaining a healthy skin barrier is essential for both attractiveness and overall health.

Protecting your skin from the sun is the most effective approach to maintain its youthful, fair, radiant, supple, soft, and wrinkle-free appearance.

UV radiation from the sun cause pigmentation, sunburn, and loss of suppleness in the skin, but they also cause a healthy-looking tan. Wrinkles, fine lines, sagging, dark skin, uneven skin tone, loss of translucency, increased pores, and dryness are some of the signs of premature ageing that can result from this. If you tan frequently and harshly, no amount of good genes, skin-lightening creams, or pills can help you.

Avoiding direct sunlight is ideal, but if that's not possible, you should wear sunscreen. This is especially important when out in the sun for an extended time.

If we assume that people are already taking reasonable precautions to protect their skin from the sun, what further can we do to enhance its condition? Some oral supplements have been shown to improve skin health, but which ones are they, and how much of an influence do they have?

Internal Supplements

Vitamins and minerals, necessary for every system in the body, would make up the first category.

Thiamine, riboflavin, and vitamin B12 are all members of the B-complex and can have an impact on skin health (cyanocobalamin). Some kinds of dermatitis have been linked to vitamin B1 and B2 deficits (a kind of skin inflammation). Damage to neurons and other rapidly dividing cells, including skin cells, is exacerbated by a lack of vitamin B12.

Vitamin C, iron, and copper deficiencies have similar effects on skin health as B vitamin deficiencies. Collagen, a major structural protein in the skin, provides volume and tone, and all three of these are necessary for its creation.

There can be no healthy skin cell cycle without vitamin A. Skin becomes dry, brittle, and prone to wrinkles due to a lack of vitamin A. Vitamin A is essential for good health, but taking in too much of it can be dangerous.

Anti-oxidants, such as vitamins C and E and beta-carotene, have been lauded for their purported ability to mitigate the effects of free radicals. (The skin deteriorates and ages as a result of free radicals.) Although free radicals and the importance of anti-oxidants are well-established facts, it has not yet been shown whether or not vitamin and other micronutrient supplements actually enhance skin quality and slow down the aging process.

To prevent health problems, it's important to not exceed the recommended daily requirement for vitamins and minerals (RDA).

Help Specific to a Subject

Topical applications, such as sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, creams (ideally with skin whitening ingredients), and moisturizer, should complement any ingested supplements (preferably with skin lightening agents). The results from taking a supplement orally are delayed and less noticeable than those from using a topical application. Customers should temper their anticipations, since the advertised 7- or 2-week wait time for results is completely unrealistic.

For optimal skin health, we advise the following:

* Vitamins, minerals, and other micronutrients as part of a well-rounded diet that includes all food categories.

* Maintain a cheerful disposition. Acne and eczema are two skin disorders that are known to be more common in stressed people.

Please do yourself a favor and give up smoking if you are a smoker. Smoking is linked to the production of free radicals, disruption of the skin's microcirculation, and tooth and surface staining.

* Limit your time in the sun and always wear protective clothing and sunscreen.
