As the body’s largest organ, the skin benefits greatly from its nutritional intake. Science shows that nutrients such as vitamins A, C and E, amino acids and essential fatty acids are imperative for the synthesis of the three major components of the skin: collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycans. These nutrients are delivered to the dermis by microcirculation and then picked up by the epidermis through other complex biochemical processes in the skin, resulting in a healthy, radiant complexion from the inside out.
