Do you have dry and scaly patches that aren't going away? Moisturizers help a little but really don't fix the problem? Or do you have little bumps on your skin that look a little like acne but not quite? This may mean that your skin doesn't have enough VITAMIN A.
FEED YOUR SKIN INTERNALLY: Boost your Vitamin A levels internally by eating salmon, goat cheese, sweet potatoes, and kale. It can take a few months for the levels in your skin to rise significantly so keep at it and also can also feed your skin topically!
FEED YOUR SKIN TOPICALLY: Use provitamin A rich apricot oil daily to topically nourish the skin. For an extra boost, use a face mask that contains Goji berries. Vitamin A is fat-soluble and to make sure it enters your skin most effectively, so if you make it at home make sure you mix with a carrier oil instead of water. Let the mixture steep for 15 minutes and put on your skin for 10-15 minutes once or twice a week.
