Get Your Skin Ready For Summer

Soft, smooth, supple, glowing. It’s how we want our skin to look with summer around the corner. Give your skin a boost from the inside!

Vitamin B Though all vitamins are essential for the body, vitamin B is most essential for the skin. This is because vitamin B makes collagen and elastin which keep the skin supple. Cereals and whole grains are rich in vitamin B and therefore should be included in every meal. Some foods which are considered to be high in some of the Vitamin B group are turkey, liver, liver oil, tuna, chili peppers, lentils, bananas, potatoes, and tempeh (soy based). Other meats, dairy products and eggs are high in vitamin B12. Oats, barley, wheat bran, avocado, salmon, Brazil nuts (and other nuts) are more good sources of B vitamins. 

Essential Fatty Acids Both Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids help to retain moisture in the skin. Olives and olive oil, avocado and avocado oil, fish oils, and nuts are rich in these nutrients.
