Most calcium in the skin is found in the epidermis or the outermost layer of skin. Deficiency of calcium can impair our skin’s health. It helps the body to replace the old skin cells with new ones. Its deficiency in the body makes your skin look fragile and dry.

There are some amazing, unknown benefits of calcium for our skin such as prevention of dry skin, dead skin and appearance of wrinkles. Here are some ways it is a savior for your skin!

Natural moisturizer

Calcium occupies a large mass of our body materials. Skin becomes dry, wrinkled and itchy without its required intake. Calcium works with the epidermis to produce sebum, a natural skin-coating substance that keeps the skin to maintain its natural moisture.

Inadequate amount of calcium produces less sebum leaving the skin dry and unhealthy. People may face serious skin disorders like eczema in case of dry and damaged skin and this can even lead to skin cancer.

Stealing from teeth and bones

Your body needs a certain amount of calcium and in case of less calcium intake, the system will start stealing calcium from your bones and teeth making them weak and leaving you to suffer from other serious problems. If you don’t get enough calcium you may have to consult the best orthopedic surgeon in Rawalpindi for help.

Skin Renewal

Calcium is responsible for proper cell turnover but it would not be possible without the intake of correct calcium dosage. It ensures the renewal of skin thus removes dead calls by creating the protective lipid barriers.

Antioxidant

Though calcium itself is not an antioxidant but it plays a major role in the production of antioxidants that prevent DNA damage and amazingly protect our skin texture.

Protection against harsh weather conditions

Cold or frosting weather always affects the skin badly. Its proper and required intake protects your skin from harsh weather conditions. Dry and itchy skin can be successfully warded off with the magic of calcium as it offers protective epidermal tissues against dry or harsh weather.

Reduces stress

It soothes the nerve system and thus reduces stress and depression. An adequate amount of this mineral considerably reduces the risk of damage to elastin and collagen.

Calcium facial treatments

Some fancy facial treatments are commonly used by our beauticians to give their clients a fairer, fresh and radiant look. A number of yogurt, strawberry, banana and honey masks are used to revitalize the skin texture.

This is another benefit of calcium. Its deficiency invites a couple of serious diseases and in order to avoid this problem, you may add a calcium supplement to your diets.
