9. Vitamin a

Lastly, let’s talk about Vitamin A. Vitamin A is your skin’s best friend, and in your 20s, you should be eating as much as you can get. It’s much better to get plant sources of Vitamin A than from taking a supplement, which you can actually get too much of. However, the plant form of Vitamin A, known as beta-carotene, can’t be used too much. You might get a little glow to you, but that’s just due to the extra beta-carotene, not because you’re suffering toxicity! Vitamin A wards off and actually reverses wrinkles, and it also prevents and treats acne. The chemical acne treatment Accutane is actually made from chemically derived Vitamin A in the form of beta-carotene.

I prefer just to eat my way to pretty skin, what about you? Get your beta-carotene through sweet potatoes, leafy greens, carrots, winter squash, pumpkin, and spirulina. These are your top sources and trust me, you’ll never believe how much they’ll do for your skin!

If you’re in your 20s, now’s the time to start paying attention to your face. You’ll enter your 30s with glowing skin, and it’s never too late to start taking care of your skin, even if you are already over 30. I reversed my skin almost to the point of not recognizing it each day now, and thankfully, the damage I put it through is now a thing of the past. Try my tips for skincare in your 20s, and hopefully they’ll help you too! What’s your best skin tip?
