Vitamins A and E are critical factors when it comes to your skin’s well-being.  Vitamin A helps decrease the effects of sun damage, which dries skin out and also reduces its elasticity.  Vitamin E helps improve dry or rough skin; such as skin damaged from the sun’s harmful UV rays.  Both vitamins can be found in topical and oral supplements, however it is important to know that oral regimes are far more successful in delivering these fat soluble vitamins where it matters as opposed to rubbing the vitamins on your skin.

Vitamin A which contains fat-soluble retinoids plays an important role in skin health. Vitamin A can help you to get a better eyesight as well. It is critical for regulating enzymes, encouraging the immune system and generating red blood cells. 

 

Oral or Topical Treatment?

In oral treatment, you have to eat vitamins in the form of capsules or tablets. You can take Vitamin A or E capsules to eliminate the deficiency of these vitamins from your body. Many skin care experts would argue that oral treatment is the only worthy option.

Topical application has been shown to be ineffective in delivering Vitamin E to the skin. It is poorly absorbed and utilized. Vitamin E, when taken orally is better suited for deficiencies and provides greater benefits to the skin.
