Nothing replaces the whole-body benefits of a healthy diet. But, when it comes to nourishment, skin is often given the leftovers.
"Our skin, the largest organ of the body, is the last in line at the nutritional banquet,” says Sally Penford, Education Manager for Dermalogica and The International Dermal Institute. “There isn’t much to fill up on because the brain, heart and other essential organs have first dibs."
While a healthy diet will always positively impact your skin, there’s no denying the added benefit of nutrient-infused skin care. Medical research proves that skin attains higher levels of antioxidants (Vitamin C and Vitamin E) when they’re applied topically versus ingested.
Penford recommends doubling up for lasting skin benefits. Make fruits and veggies your main dish, then order a side of skin care containing these clinically-proven provisions.
