10 Nutrients To Soothe Skin Flare Ups (+Healing Recipe)

Many who suffer with eczema, psoriasis or other chronic skin diseases have tried dozens of treatments: lotions, salves, steroidal creams, gut-health protocols… 

And yet they still continue to experience flare-ups with painful, distressing and, for some, embarrassing outbreaks including severe irritation, inflammation and itching.

As you might have guessed, skin health is heavily influenced by diet. Not getting enough of certain nutrients may be one of the largest barriers preventing you from finding relief. 

The Following Are The Top 10 Nutrients That Can Help Improve Skin Health:

Vitamin D: Vitamin D works wonders for skin, and studies have found that it may be particularly helpful in managing psoriasis. [1]

Vitamin A: Vitamin A increases cell reproduction and stimulates collagen production.

Vitamin E: This antioxidant powerhouse protects cells and aids in maintaining moisture.

Vitamin C: This powerful vitamin is the real hero behind natural collagen and elastin production by preventing cell damage. 

Omega-3 Fatty Acids: These essential fatty acids are key for skin health, assisting greatly in collagen production. The best vegan source is high quality Flaxseed OIl.

Zinc: This mineral is crucial for strengthening tissue, which combats fine lines.

Calcium: Calcium is needed for cell regeneration and growth, which translates to a youthful complexion.

CoQ10, or Coenzyme Q10: This antioxidant helps eliminate toxins from your body, making it incredibly beneficial for both skin and overall health. You can acquire small amounts through vegetables like spinach, cauliflower and broccoli, but a high quality vegan supplement may be helpful as well.

Biotin (Vitamin B7): One of the essential B vitamins, biotin has become famous for its ties to improving not just skin, but also nails and hair. Vegan sources of biotin include beans and leafy greens. A vegan-friendly supplement may be useful too.

Curcumin: This antioxidant is found naturally in our favorite healing spice, turmeric! Adding turmeric to meals (or beverages–Golden Milk Latte anyone?) can provide many health wins. To truly benefit from curcumin’s skin-healing powers, however, including a vegan-friendly supplement may be needed. 

If you’re in need of drastic, immediate relief, try this Oatmeal Bath recipe from our friends and health activists, Ryan & Teddy Sternagel.
