The Anti-aging anti-acne vitamin ( Vitamin A )

In my post about vitamin C , I mentioned that there are three important vitamins to your skin that help keeping you younger. These vitamins are: C, A. In this post I will talk about vitamin A.

What is Vitamin A?

Vitamin A is commonly known as the vitamin needed for good eyesight. Vitamin A is also vital for regulating genes, maintaining healthy skin, supporting the immune system and producing red blood cells.

Sources of Vitamin A:
-Whole milk
-Sweet Potato

Why Vitamin A for skin?

Vitamin A forces your skin cells to turn over faster, bringing new fresh skin cells to the surface.

If your skin has been feeling scaly and dry, then there’s a possibility that you might be lacking in Vitamin A.

Vitamin A helps in the following:

- Slow aging process : Vitamin A is a great anti-aging nutrient. So if you wish to get rid of  lines, wrinkles, dull skin and other skin aging symptoms, then Vitamin A may can be of great help.

- Acne and pimples: Individuals who are suffering from acne are encouraged to take plenty of Vitamin A or apply products that are derivatives of the vitamin.

- Repair damaged skin and Rebuild skin tissues : it is an essential vitamin when it comes to healing scrapes, wounds and other damages to the skin.

- Skin disease psoriasis : Patients who suffer from the skin disease psoriasis are often advised to apply retinoid (a form of Vitamin A) to regulate cellular growth.

How often to use Vitamin A

If you have acne, scars, wrinkles then use it daily, or every couple of days. Else once a week it enough

Note 1 : Vitamin A can cause some irritation to your skin, in this case to have to start slow, applying only every couple of days.

Note 2: Using Vitamin A increases your skin's sensitivity to the sun, so use ample amounts of sunscreen.

Vitamin A is the Anti-aging anti-acne vitamin, it seem that people who have young skin know this information decades ago and used it since they are in their twenties.
