4 Vitamins That Help Your Skin

Your skin can be pampered and nourished and treated from the outside, but there are several vitamins that are essential to the inside of your skin that you should be getting plenty of in your diet.

The 4 vitamins that help your skin the most are:

  • Vitamin A—This amazing nutrient is found in leafy greens, carrots, oranges, and sweet potatoes. It improves eye health as well as providing the building blocks for skin repair.
  • Vitamin C—Has a fabulous effect on increasing hair diameter and thickness. Eating an abundance of peppers, broccoli, cauliflower and citrus fruits will provide much-needed vitamin C to your skin.
  • Vitamin E—This awesome antioxidant vacuums up free radicals and keeps your skin nice and smooth. Beechnuts, olives, coconuts and avocados are all highly rich in E vitamins.
  • Biotin B—This type of vitamin B actually plays a crucial role in the formation of your skin cells. It also provides building blocks for your nerves and increases your overall cell activity. Some tasty sources of biotin include eggs, oats and bananas.

Keep in mind that chronic conditions may require a more comprehensive treatment plan and that diet alone will not prevent the occurrence of annoying skin conditions.
