One Of The Essential Vitamins For Acne-Free Skin
If you are someone that suffers from acne then you’ve probably have heard of how Vitamin A is crucial for clear skin. Here are a few tips to make sure you are consuming the right amounts of Vitamin A while on your quest for flawless skin.
- Retinoic acid is a metabolite of vitamin A that mediates the functions of vitamin A required for growth and development for beautiful skin.
- Carotenoids, which have greater amounts of vitamin A, are found in plants, such as dark and yellow vegetables, carrots, and fruits.
- Vitamin A reduces the amount of oil your skin produces, which also reduces pore-clogging.
- Protect fats from oxidation (which keeps cell damage and inflammation at bay).
It is recommended that eating 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day provides about 50% to 65% of vitamin A for adults. Below is a list of healthy fruits and vegetables where you can get your daily dose of Vitamin A:
- Sweet potato
- Sweet red peppers
