Also, when the body obtains enough vitamin A, skin is protected from the inside out.
Numerous studies have demonstrated that the antioxidant vitamin A, which is present in foods like fish and eggs, can prevent and reverse cancerous changes in cells in some body parts, including the skin.
According to a previous study, those who consumed 25,000 IU of vitamin A daily for up to five years had a 32% lower risk of getting a common type of skin cancer.
Vitamins C and E together have been shown in numerous studies to shield the skin from UV ray damage.
Vitamins C and E taken orally in combination with human subjects exhibit increased Minimal Erythemal Dose (MED), a measurement of skin photoprotection from UV light.
The two vitamins taken together were linked to less DNA deterioration following UV exposure.
