The latest studies indicate that certain compounds found in nature have powerful effects on our health, including the health of our skin.
Vitamins A, C and E are primary, essential antioxidants that we need to minimize cell damage caused by free radicals. While we can do many things to avoid excessive oxidant exposure (not smoking, eating organic, etc.), we cannot completely avoid it. So, its important that we get enough antioxidants to balance out the harmful oxidants.
This infographic entitled Vitamins for Healthier Skin from iHerb.com illustrates and explains the importance of Vitamins A, C and E to drastically improve and protect our skin and fight the effects of aging.
Although it is always best to get vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other important nutrients from foods, such as fresh fruits and vegetables, grains, nuts and seeds, sometimes supplementing is advised. Before taking supplements, however, it is best to consult with a qualified healthcare professional to assess your individual need for supplementation.
