It’s #Fridayfive time folks🙂 :: I’ve missed a few weeks (life hey?!) so am brimming with topics to share with you over the next few weeks👉🏻do get in touch if there’s something specific you’d like covered! . . . Today we’re looking at 5 nutrients that are important for maintaining skin health from the inside-out & next time we’ll look at the Hypothalamic Pituitary Adrenal (HPA)-axis✨ . . . 🔸Our skin is our largest organ and is a natural barrier between our internal & external environments, protecting us from things like UV damage, chemical & mechanical stressors & bacterial infection.
It also plays roles in maintaining temperature & immunity. It is comprised of 2 layers; the outer, epidermal layer provides barrier function & is mostly made up of cells called keratinocytes, whilst the dermal inner layer provides strength and elasticity, and includes the vascular (circulatory), lymphatic and neuronal systems. 🔸Keep in mind that everything we put on our skin is absorbed👉🏻think about beauty products you use and what you are exposing yourself to ie; certain chemicals and preservatives such as parabens in some kinds of make-up, shampoos, body lotions, sunscreen and deodorants can have an effect on the endocrine system. 🔸Swipe👉🏻for a look at some important skin nutrients & their food sources💫 X #fridayfive #skinhealth #skinfoods #simplegoodness #backtobasics #holistichealth #nutritionist #wholefoods #everydaynutrition #nourish #nurture #be.
