Underneath the Skin’s Surface

As an official sponsor to the Miss Earth United States pageant this year, one cannot go without thinking about beauty. And when one thinks about beauty, one cannot go without thinking about skincare. As with beauty, skincare starts from the inside out.

There is surmounting evidence to suggest that how your skin naturally looks and feels on the outside is a manifestation of what is going on internally. Your skin is the largest organ in the body. So just as with any other organ, like your heart or liver, what you eat and how well you’re able to maintain it, will ultimately affect the condition of those organs. Terms such as ‘Holistic Skincare’, ‘Ingestible Skin Products’, ‘Body Skincare’ too, are becoming increasingly popular.

Therefore, this week, we are talking about how and which minerals may be beneficial for the health of your skin.

Selenium has shown to play a key role in skin care prevention both topically and when ingested regularly.

Copper has shown to help maintain and even improve skin elasticity and thickness.

Zinc is sometimes used to tame oil production and therefore control the development of acne. In fact, acne itself may be a symptom of zinc deficiency.

#FUNFact: Our Humic/Fulvic Complex Contains Traces of All These Minerals.

Don’t miss out on the crowning of a new Miss Virginia Earth United States THIS WEEKEND, April 21-22, at the Crystal City Marriott at Reagan National Airport in Crystal City, VA!
