Hi,

You are what you eat!

Good skin care begins from within and so it makes perfect sense to look at what you eat. Trust me… There is nothing like a healthy diet that can guarantee you glowing skin.

Let’s have a look at Vitamin’s and what they have to offer:

Vitamin A
Killer of free radicals, vitamin A fights acne and blemishes and lowers sebum production within the skin. Also, it helps heal wounds faster and stimulates the formation of new tissues.

Vitamin A is abundant in green vegetables like spinach, broccoli, asparagus, peppers. It can also be found in apricots and cantaloupe.

Vitamin B
Responsible for smoothening the skin, vitamin B prevents the formation of blackheads and promotes oil production. Deficiency of Vitamin B can lead to dry and flaky skin.

Meat, fish, eggs, and peanut butter are all high in Vitamin B and so are certain grains like brown rice.

Vitamin C
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that aids in the repair and growth of tissues and protects against free radical damage. Consequently, it heals burns and wounds and soothes the skin. Vitamin C is known to preserve the collagen tissues within the skin and thus keep in firm and supple. Moreover, it boosts the immune system and protects against cardiovascular disease.

Vitamin C is perhaps the most commonly found vitamin. It’s present in good amounts in citrus fruits like oranges lemons and fruit juices. It can also be found in broccoli, berries, beet roots, avocados, asparagus, tomatoes and peppers.

If you have a smoking habit or consume alcohol or take anti-depressants, then make sure you have extra supplements of Vitamin C in your diet. This is because these habits can reduce Vitamin C levels in the body.

There you go! A versatile array of Vitamins and ways to include them in your diet! If you have a healthy diet, you can be rest assured that your skin will also tell the tale.

Apart from this there are also many skin care products that contains vitamin supplements.
