SKIN HEALTH

SKIN HEALTH

The skin is the largest organ, and it provides a protective barrier over the entire human body! It is the first line of defence, regulates our temperature, makes vitamin D and helps to prevent dehydration. 

The following nutrients and herbs are essential for optimal skin health - 

  • Vitamin A:
    Necessary for collagen synthesis, epithelial cell differentiation, antibody production and phagocytosis
     
  • Vitamin C:
    Contains anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and plays a role in collagen synthesis
     
  • Vitamin D:
    Immunomodulatory, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant
     
  • Vitamin E:
    Provides natural anti-aging properties to improve elasticity and increase moisture while decreasing the release of pro inflammatory cytokines
     
  • Zinc: 
    Modulates immune and inflammatory activity
     
  • Calendula:
    Helps to soothe dry skin by reducing inflammation due to the flavonoids, saponins and carotenoids
     
  • Aloe vera gel:
    Contains gibberellins and auxin – two anti-inflammatory hormones which protect and soothe the skin
     
  • Rosehip oil:
    Contains linoleic, oleic and gamma linolenic acid (GLA) – essential fatty acids essential for tissue regeneration
