5 Key Vitamins And Minerals For Healthy Skin

Get Your Essential Daily Vitamins and Minerals For Healthy Skin

Is It Hard To Get Essential Vitamins and Minerals For Healthy Skin?

Yes! Getting the proper amount of vitamins and minerals for healthy skin is a challenge for most skincare clients! 

Everyone needs these essential nutrients – that’s easy to understand. Yet, most Americans don’t get everything they need in terms of nutrition for optimal skin health.  That’s just a fact.  Most Americans eat too much sugar, too much saturated fat, and do not exercise enough to ensure really good blood and lymphatic circulation.  This leads to deficiencies in proper levels of vitamins and minerals and increases the amount of toxins which can end up causing inflammation.  

Inflammaging Comes From Poor Skin Environment

When we did a webisode with Marc St. Onge from Bend Beauty we learned that Bend’s supplements are designed to help improve the skin’s environment to help combat inflammaging, which is, inflammation-related aging.

We can fight inflammaging in 3 ways:

  1. Eating foods that are good for skin health.
  2. Take Ingestible supplements.
  3. Use topical vitamin and mineral-rich skin care products.

4. Vitamin C - Liposomal C from Herbal Skin Solutions

Liposomal Vitamin C delivers a powerful dose of essential nutrient, Vitamin C, in a liposomal delivery system that offers optimal absorption. 
Liposomal C aids collagen synthesis and combats oxidative stress. The antioxidant rich blend supports a healthy immune system by helping to form red blood vessels and protect against free radicals. 

Liposomal delivery system works more efficiently than pill form methods of delivery. The liposome has hydrophilic and hydrophobic components offering a fat and water portion which allows the Vitamin C to be absorbed through the fat and water soluble path-ways for optimal absorption by the body.

5. Vitamin A in Renew from Osmosis

Spoil your skin with the most advanced, age reversing formula available. Using the highest possible potency of our liposomal retinaldehyde, Renew offers sun safe, barrier protecting, DNA preserving technology that is proven to stimulate collagen 1000 times more than regular retinols.
