Body Snacks – Helen Daly

What does our skin like to eat?  It’s as easy as A, B, C.  Oh and let’s not forget a lot of E.  
There are secret little passages for getting various substances past your cell wall and into your skin cell.  Only substances with the correct key will be able to pass through.  A gate keeper, (your cell receptors along the cell wall,) and a key holder, (the correct substance that holds the right code.)  Anything other than this, acts like an attack on your cell. A healthy cell will be able to defend.  A weak cell will burn and die.


Isn’t it amazing to learn what your body has to put up with every day? 


Understanding antioxidants - Harvard Health



Vitamin A has to be the “Mama” of all the vitamins.  The foundation for skin health.  If you don’t have this in your skin care arsenal, then you eventually will do when working with us.  

  • Cell normaliser
  • Regulates DNA
  • Increases cell formation
  • Protects from UV and environmental damage
  • Increases the production of collagen and your skin’s natural hydration
  • And increases the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to your skin 


Vitamin B plays an important part in keeping your skin cells healthy.  In many forms it will:

  • Increase the hydration of your skin  
  • Soothe your skin 
  • Limits DNA damage by acting as a natural sunscreen
  • Controls excess pigmentation production

In parallel with vitamin A it will:

  • Facilitate in the repair of DNA
  • Increase cell production  


Vitamin C a supportive antioxidant.  (Fun fact, only humans and guinea pigs cannot make their own vitamin C.  Dunno why?)  So we must get our vitamin C from our diets and by topically applying it for our skin.  This ‘free-radical scavenger,’ will:

  • Reduce the production of abnormal pigmentation 

And along with it’s mentor, vitamin A, will:  

  • Protect against environmental damage
  • Improves wrinkles
  • Rebuilds scars and many more anti-oxidant benefits


Vitamin E a power house antioxidant.  Has a short life span, but can be reactivated by other antioxidant substances like Vitamin C.  C and E are besties if you like. 

  • Lengthens the life of cells
  • Prevents DNA mutations and cancers 
  • Protects nerve tissue  
  • A free-radical scavenger, restoring rogue cells. 


So eat and topically apply your A, B, C’s and E’s twice a day. Variety is key!
