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
  • Carrots
  • Kale
  • Squash
  • Apricots
  • Cantaloupe
  • Sweet red peppers
  • Mango
  • Peaches
  • Papaya
