What Are The Vitamins For Skin Repair?

Most people are very much concerned with the way they look to others.  Engaging in exercise routines and dieting plans can be good for the health, but we need to make sure we consume the proper foods which contain the vitamins that our body requires.

Poor nutrition, dehydration and smoking are some of the factors that can cause damage to our skin. Inflammation, acne, wrinkles and dry skin are the visible signs of skin damage. In order to reverse these conditions, we need to consume vitamins for skin repair through dietary supplements coupled with some fruits and vegetables.

There are also skin care products that contain essential vitamins for the skin. Products like lotions and creams can be used to repair skin damage by keeping it moisturized. Though there are many products available, you should first consult with a dermatologist just to be sure it is safe to be applied on your skin, because some skin care products can be harmful if you have a very sensitive skin.

Vitamin C is one of the most important antioxidants needed by your body for skin repair and growth. This vitamin facilitates the formation of new collagen and increases skin elasticity while also protecting the skin from damage caused by the sun. Vitamin C can be found on green peppers, citrus fruits, tomatoes, broccoli, mangoes and green leafy vegetables.

Next, is vitamin E. This vitamin promotes skin repair by reducing the effects of free radicals caused by exposure to the sun and also reduces the appearance of wrinkles, making the skin look smooth. Wheat germ, nuts, olives, spinach, asparagus, corn, sunflower, and soybean are great sources of vitamin E.

To smooth dry skin, you can use creams and lotions that contains vitamin E. Make sure to read first the label of the product, to know if it contains the vitamins for your skin.
