Of all the news coming from the beauty community, the loudest buzz may be about the power of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients to give skin a more radiant, healthy, and, youthful glow.
The excitement is focused not only on creams and lotions you put on your skin but what you put into your body as well. Health experts say that vitamins and minerals in all forms play an integral role in a healthy complexion, whether the source is food, supplements, or even a jar of cream.
Your skin is the fingerprint of what is going on inside your body, and all skin conditions, from psoriasis to acne to ageing are the manifestations of your body’s internal needs, including its nutritional needs. When combined with a good diet, the right dietary supplements can help keep your skin looking not only healthy but also years younger.
Nutriplus Skin Health, available exclusively to QNet customers in India provides the essential phytonutrients and antioxidants that are beneficial for skin. This power packed supplement includes Lycopene – a carotenoid extract of tomatoes, wheat germ oil, and Vitamin E.
Lycopene enhances connectivity and communication between cells, which helps aid cellular functions that improve your skin’s texture and keep it looking young.
Vitamin E helps reduce the damage caused by free radicals that gobble up collagen and elastin, the fibres that support skin structure, causing wrinkles and other signs of ageing. You can find vitamin E in vegetable oils, nuts, seeds, olives, spinach, and asparagus, but it is difficult to get the required amount from food.
Wheat germ contains 23 different nutrients, including protein, B vitamins, omega-3 fatty acids, iron and calcium. Wheat germ oil is considered one of the most concentrated sources of Vitamin E, which acts as an antioxidant and aids in the formation of red blood cells and aids in immune function. This nutrient-packed combination helps moisturise and soothe your skin, while reducing bad cholesterol and repairing tissues.
Remember, just taking the supplements is not enough. The best approach to maintaining healthy, glowing skin is to drink plenty of water, use gentle products to cleanse your skin, always wear a sunscreen, and eat a balanced diet – then you can augment that care with nutritional supplements.
