As the temperature drops we seem to notice an increase in bumps, dryness and itchiness on our skin. Wanting to delve a little more than ‘skin deep’ 😉 we stumbled on this post from @organic_olivia. We referenced their chart to help us (and you) understand deficiencies and what we can do to give a little extra lovin’ to the skin we are in!
Deficiency in Zinc – food sources high in zinc include beans, nuts, whole grains, meat and poultry
Deficiency in Vitamin D – Besides the obvious sunshine, foods high in vitamin D include fish oils, fatty fish, mushrooms, beef liver, cheese and egg yolks
CRACKS ON THE EDGE OF THE MOUTH

Deficiency in probiotics and good fats – Source these from Ginger Beer, kefir, kimchi, kombucha, miso, sauerkraut, avocados, eggs, olive oil, nuts and fish
Deficiency in coq10- Foods such as broccoli, dark leafy greens, nuts, fish, shellfish, pork, chicken and beef are good sources of CoQ10
