Nourish Your Skin

Many vitamins including A, C and E are essential for preventing and reversing signs of skin aging. Your genetic profile may put you at risk for decreased absorption & utilization of a variety of nutrients important to young, beautiful skin. Talk to your healthcare professional about the Nutrigenomix® test to learn how to optimize these important nutrients for healthy and radiant skin.  

Vitamin C

Smooths and firms skin by mopping up the free radicals that trigger wrinkling, sagging, and other aging changes. Apply vitamins topically to deliver maximum anti-aging benefits. Look for C in your moisturizer near the middle of the ingredients list to help ensure the 5% or higher concentration needed to see skin care benefits. Try our DIY VITAMIN C MASK to rejuvenate your skin.

Vitamin E

Aids in the retention of moisture and helps to neutralize damaging free radicals. Apply before and after serious sun exposure. Some studies show that the anti-inflammatory action kicks in to reduce damage even after you’ve been in the sun. This DIY AFTER-SUN SPRAY will help revive your skin after a bit too much sun exposure.

Vitamin A

Helps to reduce wrinkles, smooth roughness and fade brown spots. Vitamin A derivatives are known as retinoids, so look for this on the labels of your skin care products if you are seeking younger-looking skin. You should also apply your retinoid at night as sunlight inactivates most forms of vitamin A. 

BONUS: Vitamin B12

Helps to treat eczema, improves the balance, texture and moisture retention of the skin, and helps to heal damaged skin. Vitamin B12 controls cell formation and cell life span. Pale, dull and unhealthy complexions have also been linked to vitamin B12 deficiency. The best way to reap the benefits of vitamin B12 is to obtain it through the foods you eat.  Lamb is a great dietary source of vitamin B12. Why not cook up some of these delicious lamb sliders tonight and get a face lift at the same time.
