We all need to nourish our skin, and there are a multitude of products, both good and bad, on the market to do this topically. However, to get the best out of our skin and bodies we should nourish from the inside too. The beauty of skin is that you can affect it from both inside and out.
Vitamins A, C, and E are the primary vitamins for great skin. The can be found in various creams and serums on the market; however a lot of the time these products have other chemicals or substances that may make the vitamins irrelevant or worse still harm you.

Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies, it’s in our bones, muscles, and tendons as well as skin, hair, and nails. Collagen is part of the connective tissue in the skin that creates firmness and suppleness and is vital for skin elasticity, as well as driving skin cell renewal.
The rate at which we produce collagen slows down as we age, and the breakdown of our body’s natural collagen can lead to a number of health problems.
