Vitamin A and Its Benefits for Your Skin


How is the essential nutrient — Vitamin A — related to your skin’s overall health and well-being? Maintaining a healthy body certainly includes maintaining healthy skin. (Skin is, after all, the body’s largest organ.) So then, what are some of the ways in which Vitamin A contributes to the skin’s overall health? Vitamin A is important to skin health because it works to normalize skin cells. As Vitamin A normalizes skin health, it helps to correct a number of skin ailments. The most notable is its effectiveness in anti-aging. Topical Retinoids, like those found in Cell-Tight, bind to receptor sites on the skin. This causes the skin cell to exfoliate, revealing new cells underneath. This new skin is even in skin tone — it is essentially newer, younger skin. Vitamin A as well as topical retinoids encourage cell production, creating more layers to fill fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, retinoids improve collagen production in the skin by blocking receptors that cause collagen break down and promote receptors that generate collagen. This creates firmer skin with a smoother appearance. Retinoids are not only used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, but may also be used to prevent them in the future. Researches have found that skin that has been treated with retinoids is better able to withstand skin injury and ulcers.

Vitamin A is crucial for healthy skin. Vitamin A can be found in food sources like shrimp, yogurt, tuna, dark leafy greens,cantaloupe, and green peppers. It has also been well studied and documented that topical retinoids, as Cell-Tight, are extremely effective in the treatment multiple skin problems. Its success in anti-aging efforts has probably created the most attention. Retinoids have demonstrated to improve the firmness and texture of skin, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, skin smoothness, as well as the appearance of pore size.
