What vitamins are good for skin.

Skin is the mirror of what’s going on inside the body. Acne, rosacea, pimples, psoriasis, dull skin and aging – all signs of dysfunction inside the organism.

For best results of great looking skin is recommended to eat lots of protein and vegetables, drink 2 liters of water a day, stay away from chemicals in food, exercise and eat healthy fats – fats, coming from avocado, coconut, fish.

Unless one consumes 12 servings of vegetables and fruits during a day, supplements and vitamins should be taken to supply organism with necessary vitamins and minerals.

“There is a lot of important new research showing tremendous power of antioxidants in general, and in some specific nutrients in particular that can make an important difference in the way your skin looks and feels — and even in how well it ages,” says nutritional supplement expert Mary Sullivan, RN, co-founder of Olympian Labs. “When combined with a good diet, the right dietary supplements can help keep your skin looking not only healthy, but also years younger.”

It is also very beneficial to know what vitamins need to look for in skin care products when purchasing and understanding how vitamins work.

Vitamin B-2 (Riboflavin) benefits skin, hair, and nails; assists in formation of antibodies and red blood cells; aids in carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism.

Vitamin A ( Retinol, Beta Carotine, Retinal) is the most essential vitamin for healthy skin. One must have it for radiant an supple skin. The antioxidant properties of vitamin A combat free radicals that can damage the skin through oxidative stress. By maintaining proper moisture retention, the skin is not only protected from common dryness, but also keratinization (the process in which the epidermis hardens into a heavy material that makes up hair and nails), psoriasis (a skin disease marked by red, itchy or scaly patches), acne, and even wrinkling.

Vitamin C is a key to production of collagen, it helps to maintain health blood vessels and protects skin from damaging free radicals. Latest research shows that vitamin C not only neutralize free radicals, responsible for wrinkles, aged skin, dryness, fine lines and loss of collagen, but also repairs damaged DNA.

Vitamin E is a fat soluble vitamin that protects your cell membranes against free radicals. One of the benefits of vitamin E on skin is providing a chemical known as alpha-tocopherol to recharge lycopene and the other carotenoids so they can continue doing their job. Taking vitamin E will not increase the concentration of carotenoids in someone’s skin, but if there is enough adequate carotenoids in the diet, vitamin E will help them work longer and better, allowing you to have the benefits of vitamin E on skin.

Vitamin K makes it possible for the body to convert the glutamic acid ( one of 20 proteinogenic amino acids) into gamma-carboxyglutamic acid. Main benefit of vitamin K is removing calcium from arteries and vessels, and prevent heavy bleeding and bruising.

Biotin is necessary for cell growth, the production of fatty acids, and the metabolism of fats and amino acids. Biotin is responsible for hair, nails, lashes growth and, when taken internally, significantly affects hair growth, but it can’t be absorbed through skin or hair, so when there is cosmetic product claims to have biotin, it is not going to help to grow hair, lashes or brows.
