Vitamins for skin elasticity

The appearance of the skin may suffer from certain deficiencies in our diet. That is why it is necessary to carry out a balanced diet.

Vitamin A (Retinol)

It promotes healing, provides softness and strengthens the skin’s natural defenses.

Vitamin A is found in products of animal origin such as butter, eggs, liver, cheese and also in fruits and vegetables: carrots, spinach, broccoli, orange, apples, etc. When frying foods rich in vitamin A, as this is a fat-soluble vitamin, the food vitamin is lost.

Vitamin B3 (Niacin)

Protects and prepares the skin for sunbathing. Sometimes it is used to prevent sun allergies.

It is found in the liver, lean meats, chicken, nuts, fish and dried beans.

Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine)

Balances oily skin, reducing the secretion of sebaceous glands.

This vitamin is found in liver, chicken, pork, fish, potatoes, dried beans, bananas, whole foods and other fruits and vegetables.

Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid)

It promotes healing of the skin, intervenes in increasing the body’s defenses against infections, is essential for the formation of collagen (protein in the skin tissue) and has an important antioxidant role, destroying free radicals and protecting the skin against ultraviolet rays

Vitamin C is found in fruits and vegetables, especially citrus fruits, strawberries and strawberries, kiwis, lemons, oranges, grapefruits, green peppers, green leafy vegetables such as spinach and parsley, potatoes.

The action of heat destroys vitamin C, so it is better to eat fresh fruits and vegetables. It is also destroyed over time and when combined with alcohol.

Vitamin E

It delays skin aging, it is the main antioxidant vitamin, destroys cell free radicals that are formed by the action of ultraviolet radiation. If applied locally, it stimulates the microcirculation of the skin.

Foods rich in vitamin E are sunflower, wheat germ and olive oils, egg yolks, whole grains, legumes, green leafy vegetables, nuts, fish and meat.

Selenium

It has an antioxidant action that contributes to the delayed aging of skin cells. It is found in eggs, dairy products and mushrooms.

Zinc
