Green City Encourages Vitamin-Rich Diets for Glowing Skin


Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/10/2015 -- At Green City, Ashley Richardson and her team of estheticians know a thing or two about natural beauty. Green City is Philadelphia's only salon for sugaring, a gentle, natural hair removal technique, and incorporates principles of holistic beauty into many of their affordable skin care services in Philadelphia. Recently, the salon shared some wisdom about the importance of a healthy, vitamin-rich diet for radiant, youthful skin.

The information comes from the Fall 2014 issue of Newbeauty, which lays out a comprehensive guide to diet and how it affects skin health. The feature identifies the warning signs of vitamin deficiency that show up as unhealthy skin, hair and nails. These issues usually can be remedied by diet and nutrient-rich foods.

Skin dryness, redness, eczema or acne could all indicate deficiencies in vitamins A, B, C, D, and E. Vitamins C and E are antioxidants, which help fight free radicals that contribute to aging. Vitamin C also helps produce collagen and vitamin E protect cell membranes. Sun damage may be an indicator of vitamin C deficiency.

Clients can easily get extra vitamin C from citrus fruits, kiwi, broccoli, kale, strawberries and yellow bell peppers. But just as with using topical products rich in Vitamin C, when consuming it, a daily SPF should also be considered! Vitamin E can be found in almonds, kale and plant-based oils, while vitamin A is found in sweet potatoes, carrots, lettuce and leafy greens like spinach and Swiss chard. For a boost in vitamin D, which improves skin radiance, Green City clients can consider salmon, eggs, and tuna. B3 supplementation may also be appropriate for clients who suffer from acne. But, as always, clients should check with their health care professional before starting any new diet or supplement.

Green City clients can visit their favorite Philadelphia skin care salon combining the best of clinical and all-natural beauty, for advice on addressing skin issues and staying healthy.
