Think green and deep orange
Two-thirds of the vitamin A in the typical American diet comes from carotene, which is part of the yellow pigment in fruits and vegetables. Carotene is manufactured into vitamin A by our body, and therefore is crucial to healthy skin. Deep orange? Think sweet potatoes, carrots and apricots. Dark green? Try spinach, collards and broccoli. Consuming more foods high in carotene is a simple way to increase your body's vitamin A to healthy levels without reaching toxicity.
Note: It is wise NOT to supplement your diet with Vitamin A pills. Instead, focus on the delicious tastes of those fruits and vegetables high in carotene for a safe way to healthy skin.
