IT PROTECTS AGAINST UV DAMAGE AND SLOWS SIGNS OF AGING.
Most of your vitamin A intake comes from eating foods rich in beta-carotene and pro vitamin
A carotenoid, which is potent antioxidants. Not only do these squelch free radicals
that break down collagen (your skin’s support structure) and contribute to fine lines and
saggy skin, they also lessen skin’s sensitivity to the sun, providing some natural protection
against sun-induced redness and pigmentation.
IT ENCOURAGES HEALTHY SKIN CELL PRODUCTION.
Retinal, retinol, and retinoic acid are important to cell production and growth. Vitamin A also stimulates fibroblasts—the cells responsible for developing tissue that keeps skin firm and healthy—in the deep layers of your skin. Because vitamin A and carotenoids
play such a big role in cell and tissue growth, not getting enough can lead to weakened skin,
causing problems ranging from dryness to wounds that heal more slowly.
IT PROTECTS AGAINST INFECTION.
Your skin is an important part of your immune system; think of it as your body’s bouncer—the first line of defense against bacteria, pollutants, and infection. By promoting cell production, vitamin A
helps strengthen this barrier, protecting your complexion from harmful irritants that attempt to attack the Surface.
IT SMOOTHES WRINKLES.
Topical vitamin A in the form of retinol (found in over-the-counter products) and retinoic acid
(found in prescription creams) are proven wrinkle fighters and many dermatologists’ go-to
recommendation for combating signs of aging. Research has shown that these ingredients are
able to stimulate collagen production: When collagen becomes damaged due to UV exposure
aggressors, wrinkles begin to develop, much like cracks in a weak foundation. Retinoids
“turn on” cells responsible for making new collagen, strengthening your skin, and
filling in fine lines below the surface so skin looks smoother. One study found that after using a
prescription-strength vitamin A cream for 10 to 12 months participants noticed significantly fewer wrinkles, and medical experts noted an 80 percent increase in collagen
