Vitamins for Healthy Skin

Yeah, I know! I may sound like I'm having a real skin problem here by posting about anti aging stuffs, but I don't care. Haha! Because I know you will benefit from it if you happen to read this. ;)

In one of my post, I wrote that starting that day I have to take vitamins religiously.

Update: I am not taking my vitamins regularly.

Ouch, I'm lazy. That's the reason why. Heehee!

Well, oh well...

Vitamin A
Not only does vitamin A help prevent cancer and acne, but it rids your skin of free radicals that cause wrinkles. You can get a healthy dose of vitamin A by using products with retinol in them. If you want to unlock the full benefits of vitamin A, try using at least 15,000 IU daily.
Vitamin B
When applied topically, vitamin B helps trap moisture into your skin, and helps keep it hydrated. And when your skin is moist, you prevent wrinkles and flakey skin. When you ingest vitamin B, you’re promoting healthy skin, nails, and hair from the inside. Vitamin B is also known to combine with vitamin A to prevent acne caused by stress.
Vitamin C
Vitamin C is an essential vitamin for keeping your skin’s healthy glow because it actually fights against damaging rays from the sun, smoke, alcohol, and other harmful pollutants. It is also an antioxidant that lowers the appearance of age spots, and aids in firming the skin by targeting the collagen responsible for skin elasticity.
Vitamin E
One of the most effective vitamins used for aging skin is vitamin E because it reverses skin wrinkling that has been caused by over-exposure to the sun. Not only does it take care of sun damage, but it also prevents a lot of skin diseases, gives the skin elasticity, and moisturizes your face. As if this is not enough, Vitamin E will improve your skin’s texture as well as restrict the production of cells known to cause cancer.

Anti Aging Beauty Tips

Every time I look in the mirror, I notice that aside from pimples I also see some lines already. Jeezzz.. It is an indication that I'm getting older.

I am turning *beeeppp* in October, but seeing my face like this, I don't want to get old.

Can someone give me some tips here?

Here are some tips I found.

Stay out of the Sun
The first step to any good skin care routine is keeping it out of harm’s way. Simply put, limit your skin’s exposure to the sun as much as possible. Sun damage causes wrinkles, freckles, age spots, and – worst of all – skin cancer. It is improbable to ask anyone to stay out of the sun completely; but what is not improbable is asking people to use sun block with SPF 15 or higher.
Treat your Skin with Care
Sometimes the only thing that sounds good after a long day of work is a hot bath. But exposing your skin to hot water strips it of good oils that keep your skin looking supple. Some soaps are also oil-striping and should be avoided; instead, use gentle soaps that are free of harsh fragrances. After a shower, pat your skin dry instead of rubbing the towel over yourself. Also remember to apply a moisturizing lotion right after a shower to lock in the maximum amount of moisture.
Watch what you eat
What you eat also plays a big role in the appearance of your skin and skin agingprocesses. Not only will you have more energy, but your skin will look great just by eating plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and drinking plenty of water. Vitamin C, complex carbohydrates, and low fat foods also produce clear and younger-looking skin.
No Smoking
Smoking is not only harmful to your lungs; it also causes you to age rapidly. By smoking, you are depleting your skin’s oxygen, which causes wrinkles. Smoking also damages collagen and elastin in the skin leaving it weak and less elastic. One more thing to keep in mind is that the faces you make while smoking contribute to wrinkles around your mouth and eyes.
Of course, simply avoiding cigarettes and eating right is not going to make you look 30 years younger. But following these routines will assist greatly in the process of maintaining your skin’s current condition.
