Real beauty comes from within.
Recent trends in women’s health aim to convince consumers that what we apply to our skin and hair is what will transform our beauty. What we truly need is to transform our diet with the best possible ingredients.
Biotin, otherwise known as vitamin B7 is involved in a wide range of metabolic processes. It is most widely known for its support of hair growth and prevention of hair thinning by increasing shine, volume, and scalp coverage. Biotin also aids essential processes that produce fatty acids to nourish the skin and support oil gland function. Research shows that as an antioxidant, biotin is important for anti-aging giving you a youthful, glowing look with hydrated skin and shiny, full hair.
This B vitamin has been shown to combat hormonal imbalances and subsequent skin inflammation, redness, and breakouts. Studies have shown that Vitamin B6 can also stimulate the healthy appearance of hair and prevent dandruff by supporting scalp health. Aside from skin and hair, Vitamin B6 is essential for our nervous systems and immune systems, supporting healthy and graceful aging.
Vitamin C is most known for its brightening power by stimulating collagen production, improving skin tone and texture, and fading dark spots. As we age, our bodies slow down collagen production and lose elasticity. Vitamin C supports our skin texture and hydration to reduce these signs of aging. A powerful antioxidant, Vitamin C helps repair free radical damage helping not only our complexion and fighting skin damage, but also our internal organ processes.
Previously known only for its importance to bone density and strength, Vitamin D actually plays a much greater role in women’s health and beauty. Vitamin D has been shown to improve moisture and skin hydration combating skin dryness to improve skin quality and support a natural glow. Internally, Vitamin D helps regular skin turnover, working with immune cells to strengthen the skin barrier and support anti-inflammatory processes from within. Aside from bone and skin health, Vitamin D supports various cellular processes that are important factors in preventing and treating a variety of diseases including hypertension, cardiovascular disease, obesity, and psoriasis.
Vitamin E, another antioxidant is essential for the maintenance of healthy skin. Vitamin E accumulates in the sebaceous (oil) glands before moving to the skin and hair surface through sebum. The primary role of this vitamin is to prevent oxidative damage that is usually UV induced. In conjunction with Vitamin C, Vitamin E lowers DNA damage from UV exposure and has been shown to prevent excess skin wrinkling. Aside from preventing UV and sun damage, Vitamin E has general anti-inflammatory properties important to mitigating chronic inflammatory skin conditions.
Finally, we are aware of zinc’s immunity boosting power, but the mineral has amazing skin and hair benefits. Another antioxidant, zinc is important for clearing skin, reducing sunburn, and premature aging from the skin. It is also implicated in hair follicle processes supporting hair regrowth and division of hair follicles. This minerals essential role is particularly important not just for women, but specifically those impacted by hypothyroidism, polycystic ovary syndrome and eczema.
