While aging is inevitable there are ways you can prolong the aging of your skin. There are a few vitamins that have antiaging qualities which can improve your appearance and health. Here are a few antiaging vitamins for your skin:
Vitamin E repairs dry, cracked skin and helps your skin retain moisture and is often added to sunscreens because it protects your skin against UVB damage. Experts consider vitamin E to be the most important antioxidant for your skin because it protects cell membranes and prevents damage. Natural sources of vitamin E include sunflower oil, grains, oats, nuts and dairy products.
Vitamin C is the most common antioxidant found in the skin. Like vitamin E, vitamin C is vital in repairing free radicals in your skin and protecting them from the effects of aging and even skin cancer. Even minimal UV exposure can decrease the vitamin C levels in your skin, which is why a healthy dose of vitamin C is important. Fruits and veggies, especially citrus and potatoes are excellent natural sources of vitamin C.
Niacin is a type of vitamins B, which helps increase your skin’s ability to retain moisture, an ability our skin loses over time. Nourished skin appears to be healthier and helps you stay healthy by providing a strong, unbroken barrier against bacteria and viruses. Niacin raises your level of good cholesterol, which are high-density lipoproteins, and lowers triglycerides, which are fats in your blood that contribute to your overall cholesterol count. Niacin is available in foods such as eggs, meat, fish and nuts.
Make these vitamins a part of your diet naturally and through supplements to look younger and be healthier.
