The 'powerful' vitamin supplement to protect against dry skin in winter


Eczema is a long-term condition that causes the skin to become dry, itchy, red and cracked, according to the NHS. But, regularly taking vitamin C supplements could be the key to relieving your eczema symptoms, it’s been claimed.

Eczema is a very common condition that tends to come and go, dependent on the weather, and the health of your skin.

Young children are most at risk of developing eczema symptoms, but it could also develop in later life.

If you have eczema, your symptoms can vary between small patches of dry skin, to widespread, inflamed areas of cracked skin.

But you could protect against eczema symptoms, or even simply rehydrate your skin, by taking vitamin C supplements, it’s been revealed.

“Depending on the cause of your dry skin, different treatment methods, including medicated ointments and moisturisers, may be used to increase skin hydration,” said dietitian Jillian Kubala.

She wrote for medical website Healthline: “Additionally, lifestyle modifications, such as drinking more water and taking certain supplements, may improve skin dryness.

“Vitamin C acts as a powerful, skin-protective antioxidant and is essential for collagen production, making it an important nutrient for skin health.

“Unsurprisingly, studies have shown that increasing dietary vitamin C, through vitamin C supplements, may improve many factors of skin health, including skin hydration.”
