What are the benefits of Zinc for skin and hair?

Zinc is a trace element with many benefits for the body. If its primary function is to support the immune system , today we are interested in its beneficial properties for the skin and hair .

How does zinc work on skin and hair?

1. The benefits of zinc for the skin

In addition to its many benefits for health , zinc is involved in the metabolism of proteins present in the structure of our skin, those which contribute to its elasticity and which are necessary for the prevention of aging.

The composition of zinc makes it an element that contributes to the natural production of these proteins in the body, in particular that of collagen, an essential for skin tissues.

And that's not all, it also has antioxidant properties, which is why it is consumed to revive the radiance of the epidermis, which allows you to have luminous skin all year round.

Zinc is ideal for protecting, supporting and caring for your skin , from oily skin to skin weakened by psoriasis, dermatitis or even acne-prone skin for which zinc is also an effective solution .

And if it helps the skin in its growth, it is also an anti-imperfection barrier which protects against excess sebum in order to allow the skin to breathe and be well hydrated.

Finally, zinc is also used for the skin to benefit from its healing properties, because it promotes the production of proteins necessary for the reconstruction of the dermis (deep layer of the skin) and its elasticity.

To help you convince that friend who has temperamental skin , we take stock of the beneficial effects of zinc for the skin :

  • Acne skin treatment
  • Regulator of sebum production
  • Faster and more effective healing
  • Active regeneration of skin cells
  • Protein intake for skin vitality

The best news is that zinc also works wonders on your hair, enough to take care of you from head to toe and be in great shape!

2. The effects of zinc on hair

Just as zinc participates in the synthesis of proteins in our skin, it also plays a role in the production of collagen and keratin , essential proteins for hair health . By synthesizing them, hair growth is more active and the hair mass is densified, and above all of better quality.

In addition to promoting hair growth while providing more resistance, zinc also stimulates the hair fiber in depth. Much more than a simple growth accelerator, it acts on the entire scalp, in particular by stimulating blood microcirculation and by acting on the hair follicles (invisible parts of the hair located under the scalp).

Between growth, fortification, suppleness and shine, zinc is a great ally for taking care of your hair while providing it with the essential elements for its development.

Because your hairdresser will ask you your secret to having such healthy hair, we remind you of the best benefits of zinc on hair :

  • Anti hair loss
  • Faster hair growth
  • Hair mass development
  • Stimulates the entire scalp
  • Promotes the synthesis of proteins essential to the hair fiber

With a beauty routine adapted to your hair type and a diet promoting the growth and health of the hair fiber, boosting them with the right food supplement allows you to have dream mane. Whether you need to treat skin acne , take care of your body or even boost hair growth, zinc comes to your rescue.
