It seems that everyone wants to grow older, but no one enjoys appearing to be her actual age.
While hair can be colored and wardrobes can be updated to make one look younger, a person’s skin can often let out the secret of carefully hidden maturity. Covering up unhealthy skin with cosmetics is not the best solution for a more youthful appearance. Preserving healthy skin from a young age is important if one wants to keep drinking from the proverbial fountain of youth.
Protecting skin from the sun, eating a healthful diet and abstaining from smoking can subtract years from skin. However, there are also vitamins available to aid in keeping skin flawless after 40 and beyond. Vitamin A seems to be an all-around great maintainer of skin. It strengthens and repairs skin as well as prevents dry skin, acne and wrinkles.
Vitamin C has a reputation to help the immune system, but it also heals wounded skin. Another way to speed healing due to sun damage is taking Vitamin E supplements.
Skin tone is greatly improved by Vitamin B consumption. Stress causes many skin problems such as eczema, and this vitamin is known to reduce stress. Healing processes and immune function are also aided by zinc supplementation.
While outside exposure to age-inducing agents should be avoided, inner consumption of healthful vitamin supplements is essential to a complete anti-aging skin regimen. Adding a few supplements to an otherwise healthy diet can ensure healthful skin even as the years advance.
