Health and wellness professionals put a lot of stock into the importance of macro-nutrients for optimal health. Micronutrients, vitamins and minerals, are essential for the body to create substances such as hormones and enzymes used by the body. Some of these perform very specific functions while others assist the body in a multitude of ways. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables of all types is necessary to prevent deficiencies which can be detrimental to your health. We know we need an array of micronutrients for our bodies to perform but did you know that certain vitamins are incredibly important for the health of your skin?

Vitamins and minerals are vital for overall health and they are a gamechanger when it comes to skincare. Let’s take a look at the top of the class when it comes to skin care: Vitamin A.
Nothing work miracles like Vitamin A. Vitamin A can be found in both animal foods in the form of Vitamin A1 and comes in foods like beef liver, fatty fishes like King Mackerel, Salmon, and some cheeses. For a more exhaustive list check out this link from Health Line. Plant-based foods like sweet potatoes, kale, sweet red peppers, spinach, and mango, just to name a few, all contain Provitamin A which is converted to usable Vitamin A by the body. According to experts, the average person over the age of 14 needs about 5000 IU’s of dietary Vitamin A sourced from animal and plant-based sources.
Vitamin A is a powerhouse when it comes to cellular and tissue growth. It is important for the health of your kidneys, eyes, lungs, and heart. With regards to the health of your skin, Vitamin A helps protect it from the inside out because it plays a crucial role in the development of fibroblasts, cells responsible for the creation and upkeep of connective tissues. If you want skin that is firm and tight, be sure to consume an adequate amount of Vitamin A each day.
Topical Vitamin A has long been a star in the beauty industry for its ability to ward off the signs of aging. After its genesis as a topical product to treat acne in the 80’s, professionals began to notice how well it treated fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin A works by activating collagen production creating plumper smoother skin. It also accelerates wound healing, exfoliates the skin, and helps repair skin at the cellular level.
