Must-Have Vitamins for Healthy Skin

Taking vitamin supplements may be a quick source but your best bet is to comsume them through healthy foods. Also find topical products (such as moisturizers and masks) that contain these babies!

Vitamin C

  • Bell peppers (any color)
  • Broccoli
  • Strawberries
  • Guava
  • Citrus fruits like pineapples, lemons, limes, oranges, etc.
  • Watermelon
  • Pineapples
  • Blackberries
  • Cauliflower
  • Cherry tomatoes
This antioxidant vitamin stimulates your skin's production of collagen and elastin fibers, making it firmer and more elastic. Also helps protect skin cells from sun damage. To give your skin a solid dose of C, look for products that contain at least a 10 percent concentration of L-ascorbic acid. Make sure to eat at least 2 of the fruits or vegetables to get the appropriate amount daily.

Vitamin B Complex

  • oatmeal
  • bananas
  • eggs
  • rice
While Vitamin B Complex is great for your entire body, it may be the most important for your skin. Our Skin cells are constantly growing and renewing themselves, each of the B vitamins work together to ensure the good health of these structures. Besides direct effects in enhancing your skin tone, these vitamins are also considered to play a role in reducing stress, which can indirectly aid in preventing acne.


Yeah yeah, water isn't a vitamin but its still one of the most important factors in keeping healthy looking appearance.
