Do Nutritional Supplements make a Difference in Skin Rejuvenation??

Even though changing your nutrition is not going to wipe out all your wrinkles or completely stop skin aging, it is important to realize that what you eat affects every organ in your body- and skin is no exception. If you think that an expensive skin cream will completely nourish your skin, then think again!  Applying a cream with nutrients to the surface of your skin does not ensure that those nutrients actually penetrate into your skin cells. They may just “sit there” until your next shower. 

Dr. Wright’s Tip 

The journey towards healthy skin begins with good nutrition – a well-balanced diet is essential for healthy skin. When the nutrients are ingested and absorbed into your bloodstream, they are sure to be delivered to your skin cells.  A good diet won’t necessarily reverse damage that is already done, but it will prevent more damage.  Skin cells need plenty of vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats –like Omega-3 and Omega-6 Essential Fatty Acids (EFA). Fatty acids will strengthen the skins ability to retain moisture and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.  As well, EFA’s will help keep your skin stay soft and repair damage. In fact, dry, itchy, scaly skin is a sure sign of fatty acid deficiency.  

Omega 3 EFA :   Fish is not the only source! Flaxseed oil contains twice as much as is found in fish oil.   

                                      Other sources are green leafy vegetables, soy, and grains

Omega 6 EFA  :  Linoleic Acid – Nuts, grains, soy, sunflower and safflower oil
