Containing Vitamin B3 For Skin Health + 4 Other Key Nutrients

Vitamin B3 For Skin Health

We think a Salad Nicoise is an ideal way to get Vitamin B3 For Skin Health! It’s full of delicious tuna and potatoes, which are rich in the nutrient.  You can also pair this with the Vita Cura Gold B3 Serum Complex from Repêchage to give your skin an added boost!

“Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B-3. This essential nutrient helps build proteins in the skin and offers protection against environmental damage…..” Healthline.com

Resveratrol for Skin Health

Resveratrol is a really fun way of saying “red wine”!

“Resveratrol is a chemical found in red wine, red grape skins, purple grape juice, mulberries, and in smaller amounts in peanuts. It is used as a medicine.” Webmd.com

Basically, it makes drinking red wine all summer long – a good thing for your skin!  You can also use products that contain Resveratrol, like the Hydra Repair Mask from Dermamed Solutions!

Hydra Repair Mask by Dermamed Solutions

This creamy, hydrating mask works to visibly reduce pores and immediately improve minor irritations and refine texture.  Helps to calm irritable skin and may be used after an aggressive treatment.  It also works well to reduce stress from acne, sunburn and other irritable skin conditions.  It can be used for at-home care and between treatments to help keep skin in a refined condition.  Red wine extract has an anti-inflammatory quality, while squalene and jojoba are added to soothe and replace the lipid barrier to help hold in the skin’s own natural moisture factor.

Vitamin C For Skin Health

There’s nothing more delicious than my favorite Italian summer salad!  The Grapefruit and Fennel Salad is light and refreshing and full of vitamin C!

We don’t really need to go into the benefits of Vitamin C for skin health do we?  Can we just all agree it’s amazing for the skin types that can tolerate it?  We love it for fighting free radicals and brightening the skin! 

We especially love Dawn Lorraine Skincare’s Grapefruit Clearing Creme!

Flavonoids For Great Skin 

The Flavonoids in fresh summer blueberries are only enhanced by the antioxidants in a delicious white tea!  This cool summer beverage is great for the skin!

“Topical application of certain flavonoids may protect skin by absorbing UVR before it can interact with and damage cellular components…” Oregonstate.edu
