Vitamins and Minerals for Skin Health

 

Vitamins A, C and E are all important for immune function, skin healing and to prevent premature ageing of skin.

Zinc is important for the immune system, skin healing and reducing inflammation. 

Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) like Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), found in Starflower and Evening Primrose Oil and Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) are sometimes used in the treatment of dry, irritated skin conditions. 

EFAs are also found in high levels in krill oil and also in seaweed, the latter being preferred by vegans.
