Beauty comes from within, and by eating the right food in combination with indulging in the right supplements, the skin will be able to reach its fullest potential and become both beautiful and spotless. Some foods and vitamins are essential to include in the daily beauty regime to target common issues and develop a healthy complexion. It’s about time to visit the local pharmacist and grabbing a jar of vitamin infused supplements.

Vitamin E

During the winter half year, dry and sensitive skin can be a complete discomfort. Especially if it’s also flaking. To prevent this frequent skin problem, storing up on some really good creams and serums packed with Vitamin E is indispensable. So is making sure to stay hydrated. This supplement can be found in spinach, broccoli, mango, avocado, kiwi and tomato. Vitamin E also thickens hair, repairs damaged skin and even treats stretch marks.

Make sure to grocery shop for carrots, eggs, apricots, spinach, sweet potatoes and broccoli.
