#NourishYourSkin Series: Miraculous Minerals - Why are they key to healthy skin for Summer

We are all more aware than ever before about the benefits of a diet rich in vitamins and minerals. In fact, Vitamins and Minerals are considered ‘essential nutrients’ because by working together, they perform hundreds of roles in the body; they help support bones, heal wounds, bolster your immune system, convert food into energy and repair cellular damage.

The skin is the largest organ in the body and so it makes sense that Vitamins and Minerals also contribute significantly to optimising skin health when consumed and also when applied topically.

Dr Pauline Hili, founder of Nourish London, says:
Recent studies have now demonstrated that feeding the dermis topically with key minerals is essential for the skin's optimum function, to give a healthy, clear complexion.

As well as the ‘essential minerals’ required by the body, there are a few that are particularly key for promoting and maintaining clear, healthy and radiant skin. Here are our Top 4:
