Vitamins and your skin.
So....vitamins. Vitamins are real. We need vitamins to live, and we can find them in food, drinks, and different skincare products. In this post I’ll be telling you a little about different topic vitamins (A, B, C, E, F) that help maintain your skin radiant, beautiful and strong.
Vitamin A, also known as retinol, prevents sun damage by interrupting the process that breaks down collagen. All of the layers of your skin (upper and lower layers) need vitamin A, which works as an antioxidant and can help prevent sunburn, although I always recommend the use of sunscreen as well, at least twice a day. Vitamin A can also help reduce inflammation and heal lesions such as cuts or scrapes.
There are different types of vitamin B (B1 - B12). Vitamin B is great for red, irritated skin, it supports your skin’s natural defenses, it gives your skin a naturally revitalized appearance and boosts the radiance of dull and mature skin. If you are suffering because of hormonal imbalances, vitamin B fights against the effects these imbalances might produce on your skin.
Vitamin “C” for COLLAGEN. Under the superficial layer of our skin, we have a web of different proteins that maintain our skin toned. One of these proteins is collagen. Vitamin C helps the twisted shape of the web hold its shape. It is also a great antioxidant, so it might prevent skin cancer. This vitamin works as a partner with vitamin E to strengthen cell walls by absorbing sunlight to prevent damage on our cells.
And last but not least, vitamin F helps restore your skin’s natural barrier and at the same time it prevents dehydration, making your skin appear toned, radiant and luminous.
Where can we find these vitamins? Cacay, the exotic nut that grows in the Amazonian Rainforest, contains vitamins A, E and F. The Corozo berry from the Colombian coasts contains vitamins A, C and E. And Coconut, well known for its delicious scent, has vitamin E and B. All of these are ingredients of S Natural Oil. Give your skin what it needs. It’s natural. It’s you.
