So what`s all this Vitamin A about?
It`s pretty awesome…
For a start, it normalises your skin, encouraging healthy skin cell promotion.
Naturally exfoliates… yes, so no harsh gritty stuff required.
It protects the skin by plumping, thickening and strengthening its structure.
It detoxifies it!
It helps balances oil production, so Vitamin A is great for oily skin types too.
It also stimulates Collagen & Elastin production, this is why its great for wrinkles.
It helps lock in moisture and protects skins immunity.
It normalises Pigmentation (evens skintone) and most importantly it even helps fight against cancer.
You can take it orally via food as supplements and apply it topically
Good sources of vitamin A include:
- Oily fish
- Fortified low-fat spreads
- Milk and yoghurt
- Liver and liver products such as liver pâté – this is a particularly rich source of vitamin A. You may be at risk of having too much vitamin A if you have it more than once a week (this is particularly important if you’re pregnant)
You can get vitamin A by including good sources of beta-carotene in your diet, as the body can change this into vitamin A.
The main food sources of beta-carotene include:
- yellow, red and green (leafy) vegetables, such as spinach, carrots, sweet potatoes and red peppers
- yellow fruit, such as mango, papaya and apricots
