ABC’s of Healthy Skin
As the saying goes, skin is a reflection of your inner health. Good skin starts with a proper, nutritious diet, full of foods containing the following vitamins. You may also want to consider supplements.
Always consult with your doctor before making any changes to your diet or taking any supplements.
Vitamin AKnown to help ease problems like psoriasis or eczema. It may also reduce acne and help strengthen and replenish your skin.
Foods that contain vitamin A include sweet potatoes, carrots, dark leafy greens, winter squashes, lettuce, dried apricots, cantaloupe, bell peppers, fish, liver, and tropical fruits.
Vitamin B3Increases production of the body’s fatty acids, which strengthen your skin’s outer layer. It is also known to balance your complexion and improve pigment. Many cosmetics manufacturers use vitamin B3 in their serums, lotions, and moisturizers.
Foods that naturally contain high levels of B3 include yellow-fin tuna, chicken breast, mushrooms, broccoli, bulgur wheat, wheat bran, salmon, and organ meats.
Vitamin CIs an antioxidant that targets free radicals within the body, which can cause damage and age skin more quickly. Vitamin C also produces collagen—a powerful protein that helps revitalize skin.
Vitamin EAnother important antioxidant for healthy skin. Creams and lotions filled with vitamin E are commonly used to reduce or eliminate stretch marks, face lines, and other skin issues. As a bonus, this vitamin helps improve hair health, too.
Vitamin KCan help improve circulation. It is often recommended for people with dark circles under their eyes or who bruise easily.
Vitamin K-rich foods include kale, spinach, turnip greens, mustard greens, beet greens, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, onions, lettuce, and other vegetables.
