Intake of VITAMIN B

Vitamin B is also essential for the skin. It soothes the blood vessels and checks skin ageing and inflammation.

Selenium is another such nutrient; it speeds up the skin’s natural repair pace and helps protect against sun damage as well.

Deficiency of B Vitamins can lead to skin irritation. Flavonoids commonly found in chocolates and green tea are also important for skin maintenance.

Natural extracts derived from plants, fruits and veggies have now been studied for their skin benefiting properties.

Lycopene extracted from fresh tomatoes has already been touted for its skin benefits, and so are other natural extracts such as resveratrol (from grapes), genistein (from soy), papain (from papaya) which are loaded with antioxidants essential for the skin.
