The skin is the largest organ of the body and its health depends on many factors, both internal and external.
A healthy and varied diet and drinking plenty of water is essential of course, but there are skin supplements for skin that a particularly beneficial to the health and appearance of the skin.
The key to healthy and beautiful skin is to maintain a balanced diet rich in the antioxidant vitamins: vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin E.
Alpha Lipoic Acid is a powerful antioxidant supplement for skin. It helps combat the signs of aging by maintaining a cell’s metabolic function so it can perform at optimal levels. It also helps enhance the positive effects of other antioxidants present in the body such as vitamin C and E by supporting their function.
Vitamin C helps to protect the skin from sun damage, Vitamin E isÿ a potent anti oxidant that help reducing wrinkles and maintaining youthful skin while Vitamin A is required for maintenance and repair of skin tissue.
These are important supplements for skin and help skin to stay moist and supple, help repair itself and to produce the enzymes that help in stabilising collagen, which is what give skin that youthful and ?tight? appearance.
But it is not only skin vitamins you need, there are many minerals and nutrients that are required for healthy skin.
Selenium is a trace mineral and needed only in small quantities.ÿ Selenium helps in the production of antioxidant enzymes which fight free radicals and help keep the skin young and protect the skin from sun damage.
Magnesium is a wonder ingredient in skincare as it has many boosting properties. This mineral is a staple in many anti-ageing creams because of it’s replenishing qualities. It also stimulates the skin to ensure that healthy elasticity is maintained and moisture levels remain normal.
Always make sure to read the ingredients on your supplements and vitamins and optÿfor supplements that are free from bulking, binding and other agents.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
