Vitamins for Your Skin

Lemonade with flying lemon, mint and ice

When picking the right skin product it is a good idea to check the ingredients to see if it has the right skin nourishing combination. Good product should contain most if not all of following vitamins to keep skin supple and healthy:

a) Vitamin A

Vitamin A is in charge of maintenance and repair of vital skin tissue, and is the key to healthy skin. Lack of vitamin A can cause skin dryness and wrinkles.

b) Vitamin B Complex

Vitamin B complex contains the nutrient, biotin, which forms the basis of nails, skin, and hair cells. It is anti-inflammatory, it hydrates the skin cells and gives a healthy glow to skin.

c) Vitamin C

In skin, vitamin C can help collagen production. This in turn reduces wrinkles, improves skin texture, and reduces photo damage.

d) Vitamin E

The trick to getting soft touchable skin is vitamin E. It regenerates skin and can improve appearance of acne scars.

e) Vitamin K

Vitamin K is your secret weapon to fighting dark circles and bruises. This vitamin helps fade discolorations on the skin, reducing puffiness and dark circles that so many of us suffer from.

While off the shelf cosmetic product can come packed with artificially synthesized vitamin groups, you really want to go as organic as possible. Organically sourced vitamins absorb into skin better and are more potent bringing better overall skin benefits.  Whenever possible choose the facial products that source vitamins from organic ingredients.

When it comes down to your skin, healthier is better. Please check out our  great selection of organic products at Nina Bella Organic Collection.

Eliminate Dark Armpits!

Dark armpits are caused by repeated shaving, dead skin buildup and genetics. Shaving cuts the hairs off the skin surface but leaves roots. If armpit hair is even slightly darker than skin color, dark stains will appear. Dead skin cells are equally bad – they buildup in the armpit skin creases and grooves and result in unflattering dark spots. And last but not the least – genetics. Some skin will naturally accumulate more pigment in the underarms leading to skin darkening. Bottom line, no matter what the cause, dark armpits is a major pit peeve of women everywhere.  But despair not – you can eliminate dark armpits by mixing few common household items:

1 teaspoon Vaseline

1 teaspoon apple juice

1 teaspoon lemon juice

Mix all ingredients to a pasty consistency then apply a generous dab under each armpit and let dry. Once dried wash the area, pats dry and dust over with baby powder. Repeat every day. In few weeks dark skin problem will be gone.

Store the ready mixture in the fridge for up to 3 weeks, before discarding.
