Every part of one's body requires vitamins to sustain its proper health, the skin is one of the most important elements of the body that requires these health supplements. The skin is responsible for protecting the body from infections as well as producing various toxics through its pores and glands. Ultimately, it is clear why vitamins are needed to prevent acne on one's skin. This healing agent of the body needs more than just one vitamin to stay healthy. A series of vitamins are needed and are highlighted below:

Vitamin A

Many studies have concluded that low amounts of Vitamin A within the body can lead to heightened incidents of acne. Vitamin A prevents acne by eliminating or reducing the amount of sebum production within the body. Sebum is a natural body oil that is produced underneath the skin to lubricate the skin. As an antioxidant, Vitamin A takes toxic free radicals from the body. Some of the best sources of Vitamin A are green vegetables, yellow and/or orange fruits as well as carrots.

Vitamin B

Ultimately, Vitamin B includes a group of various elements such as Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Pantothenic Acid as well as Cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B12) (among many others). These vitamins keeps one's skin in proper health. With natural elements of vitamins within them, they help to prevent acne. Some foods that Vitamin B are include in are: sweet potatoes, bananas, watermelons, chickpeas and avocados.

Vitamin C

This vitamin is vital for collagen production within the body. Collagen connects the tissue from the bones and skin. This vitamin helps fight against sickness and infections (acne included). Iron absorptions can be helped as well with Vitamin C. More of this vitamin is needed if you smoke, use birth control or antibiotics. Blackberry, grapefruit, lemon, and blackcurrant all have vitamin C within them.

Vitamin E

One of the most important vitamins that fight against acne, the ability to heal and repair skin tissues (because of antioxidant tendencies) is important with this vitamin. The cells are protected because of Vitamin E's ability to check fat oxidation levels.

Some other important vitamins for acne include chromium and zinc.
