Anti-Aging Vitamins and You

We learn from a very young age that the right amount of vitamins is important for total body health. And as we grow older they play an ever increasing role in fighting the signs of our skin aging. Vitamin rich supplements support the body internally, but can their benefits translate when they are applied on our through skin care treatments. Generally speaking, vitamins applied topically is the best way to get vitamins to work at defending the aging process smoothing out the signs of wrinkles.

Vitamins for women must include natural sources of antioxidants such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, cherries and grapes. Green tea is also a good source of anti-oxidants with anti-aging properties. Your diet will show in your skin, but you need more and that is where moisturizers containing Retinol are something you need to use. Strivectin is one of the best, read on and see what will work the best for you.

Vitamins

There are 2 types of Vitamins

Water Soluble

These vitamins dissolve quickly in water. These vitamins are not able to be stored in our body and must be replaced everyday. B Complex vitamins and Vitamin C are examples. If you take too many of these orally they will be flushed out from your system.

Fat Soluble

These vitamins dissolve in fat and the excess is stored in the liver. This is why you do not need to take these every day. Vitamin A, D, E and K all stored in fat tissues from a few days to six months. These can accumulate and become dangerous.

Vitamin E Moisturizes

Vitamin E

The Skin Defender

Vitamin E oil prevents the formation of wrinkles by blocking free radical damage making this anti aging vitamin one of the best skin defenders. By boosting collagen production which is the connective tissue that keeps skin elastic, Vitamin E oil rids skin of wrinkles by supporting new skin cell growth and speeding up cell regeneration.

Also known as Alpha-tocopherol and Gamma-tocopherol so products containing these words are important to know when looking for a topical moisturizer with Vitamin E.

Vitamin E does not easily dissolve in water. Taken internally it is particularly good at helping to prevent oxidant damage and protect cell membranes, but it is not too be overdone. You really get enough of this if you take a multi vitamin. Oreal has one of the best moisturizers that is proven to softer and aid in skin looking its best.

Vitamin E Topically

When skin is the main target Vitamin E works better topically. Attacks stretch marks. For incredible results StriVectin is a must have creme for stretch marks. One of the best Anti-Wrinkle Cream in my opinion.

Because Vitamin E is a powerful fat-soluble antioxidant it protects lipids from oxidizing which helps skin retain its moisture, It is in many skin care products that claim to minimize scars, stretch marks, wrinkles and burns.

Vitamin E is found naturally in foods, and can also be used as a supplement and topical oil. Vitamin E helps to keep your skin tight and firm when used in a moisturizer.

Vitamin E is also important in the formation of red blood cells and it helps the body use vitamin K.

Scurvy was common in sailors because they had no fresh fruit or vegetables for long periods of time. In 1735 James Lind found that by giving sailors limes, scurvy was avoided. That is why to this day British soldiers are still called "limeys."

Ascorbic Acid

Free Radical Fighter

This water soluble is commonly associated with warding off the common cold. It strengthens the immune system and as an anti oxidant it is needed for tissue growth. It is good for collagen formation and wound healing and it also helps to keep our bones, teeth and gums strong and healthy. If you could get enough of this vitamin orally it would take a few hundred thousand units, which, at some point your body would ultimately just flush it out.

Topically

This vitamin is probably the best free radical defender of all the vitamins. Known to be able to smooth rough patches and to help fade brown spots. It is good at stimulating collagen. The variety of anti-wrinkle products with vitamin C is staggering.

Hyaluronic Acid

in conjunction with vitamin C products to assist in effective penetration. Hyaluronic acid (also known as a glycosaminoglycan) is often touted for its ability to "reverse" or stop aging.

Alpha-Lipoic Acid

has been referred to as a "universal antioxidant" because it’s soluble in both water and oil, which permits its entrance to all parts of the cell.It is known to boost levels of other antioxidants, such as vitamin C.

Flavonoids

Vitamin C is better absorbed in the presence of flavonoids.

Vitamin B3 is also referred to as Niacin. It is necessary for proper protein and fat metabolization in the body and plays a role in the digestive system function properly. It is also helpful in maintaining healthy skin, synthesizing hormones, and repairing tissues. The word Niacin is a combination of two words 'nicotinic acid' and 'vitamin'. Like vitamin C, niacin is water soluble.

Topically

This vitamin helps the skin retain moisture by boosting the production of fatty acids and ceramides, the two main factors responsible for protecting and fortifying the skin barrier. It is also a milder alternative to exfoliators like glycolic and salicylic acids when used in skin care. It also benefits rosacea as well as sun damage.

Deficiency In Vitamin K

Increases Bruising

If you are taking a blood thinner such as Plaxil or Wayfarrin you may become deficient in vitamin K, resulting in your blood not clotting as well. This can bring about some more blood leaking out with leaving you with unsightly bruises in cases that would not normally result in bruising. These type of bruises are not painful.At the onset of one appearing you may feel a pich, kind of like a fly bug is on you, and then you look down and it is there. The more purple (darker) the bruise is the longer it will take to clear up. The more reddish in color fade faster.
Best beauty tip is that when you feel the tinge rub a cream with vitamin K on the bruise twice a day. A topical cream with this vitamin will help your to break down the blood while at the same time reabsorbing it. The act of rubbing a cream helps speed the process.

Vitamin K

The Dark Circle Diminisher

An anti-oxidant that has been proven to be a blood clot regulator that is easily absorbed through the skin.This fat soluble Vitamin K plays an important role in how the liver modifies proteins so that they can bind calcium. This process of proteins binding calcium is important in the signal cascade that leads to the clotting of blood and the retention of minerals in bone. Drugs such as warfarin and plaxil prevent blood clotting by preventing the activity of vitamin K in the liver.


Vitamin K for Bruising

Part of the kidneys function is that is helps to aid in the bones growth and repair. It is also the main factor in why your blood clots when you get cut. If you take a multi vitamin chances are you are getting enough Vit K into your system. As we age our body stops communicating these functions and we need to reawaken the lines.With such break throughs in the cosmetic industry there are many great productsare taking g the benefits of using this vitamin in a moisturizer is beneficial to skin .
There are two types of vitamin K: one is found in plants, and the other one is found in bacteria. Vitamin K is named for the German word “koagulation” because of its function in assisting blood clotting. If we don't get enough antioxidant protection, either from our own body's production, dietary sources, or from topical antioxidants free-radical damage continue.

Very good antioxidant sources include green peas and carrots. Some other excellent sources of vitamin K include:

  • Brussels sprouts
  • Spinach
  • Swiss chard
  • Green beans
  • Asparagus
  • Broccoli
  • Kale
  • Mustard greens


Topically

Like it does orally Vitamin K can also control blood clotting when applied to the skins surface. When applied topically it helps to diminish dark circles around the eyes, spider veins and broken capillaries. It is also believed to help the bruising after surgery. It is also known to help scars fade.

Skin Bruising

Beauty Tip

Vinegar Make a compress and soak it in vinegar to alleviate the bruise and swelling. Avoid getting it in the eyes.

Amazing Hub. I guess your day has started and I would have a lot of reading to do now. I have bookmarked this hub and I would refer it to my mom and her sisters. They are very particular about their skin and would really like this information.

One thing that really amazes me about your hub is they not only contain solid information about the subject they are so pleasing to the eye. Makes one ask for more. I think when this challenge gets over I would have to ask you to personally mentor me for this. Excellent hub. Rated up!!

Natasha - My day . that is yesterday actually hasnt ended yet! It was a bit hectic today and I promised myself I would get at least one Hub no matter what. And so I am not sure if it is worth going to sleep at this point! Ha .. I really should for if I dont I will be useless tomorrow. Its a little after 3 am here in ny!

Thank you so much for your words. The aesthetic is so important to me. I think sometimes I spend more time in making it look good than the actual writing!! Maybe soon I can invest in my dream of photoshop!!

Let me know know how your mom and you sister like it! When is your exam?? Soon isnt it??? I thought you were taking it over the weekend but then I saw you mention that it was coming up .. I do need to catch up to you!! And big congrats on your progress so far. . it is so amazing taking this challenge. .

Sahri you better sleep as I want to read more hubs from you. And the time you spend on making it look good is definitely worth spending. It really pleases and impresses your reader. And I would surely let you know how my mom likes it. And I think I have really confused people about my exams. My internal exams conducted by college are on, infact just came from my exams and my final exam conducted by state is from 19 to 24 of this month. This is my final semester of my business management course so I hope I pass. I would be publishing hubs till 15 and I hope I can manage atleast 20 hubs.

And I am sure you would surely catch up with me. It is really exciting to take this challenge, I am learning a lot. And Thanks for the kins words!!

Hugs and Kisses,

Natasha

Haha on the aesthetic aspects of presenting your hub--very well-done and its sounds like me--i can spent hours on searchng for the right picture or the layout--maybe, a waste of time (?), I don't know but your layout is tastefully pleasing, for sure.

You need to go to sleep (3 am??)--after all, beauty sleep is free and does wonder for us. Anyway, love your list of anti-aging vitamins and how it works topically. Thanks for putting yourself out there, trying to keep us beautiful and young at the expense of your own comforts. Now, that's WOW enough for me. Jia Yu!
