Once upon a time, it was possible for people to care for their skin through eating a healthy diet alone, without using any chemical filled products.

People forgot this fact as the market was flooded with pills and powders that promised quick fixes for all sorts of problems. But now, as those fads die down, people are starting to think back to when things werent so complicated; when there was one, simple obvious solution to the question of how to maintain a healthy, youthful-looking appearance.

People are beginning to realise again that simply eating a diet consisting of healthy foods containing vitamins and other nutrients is a much better way to maintain their appearance than swallowing half a dozen pills a couple of times a day.

Many nutritionists and nutrition enthusiasts will tell you that the best way to absorb the nutrients a person needs, is to ingest them from the right foods. Its true that a healthy diet will do more for a person than any pill can.

Vitamins in pill form are not absorbed easily; thus they tend to come in very high does. Some peoples digestive systems are very sensitive to these doses. Some peoples digestive systems are very sensitive to these doses, and others still dont absorb any nutrients at all form the pills.

A simple solution such as eating better and healthier helps everyone. Some benefits of a healthy diet include the following:

A reduction in the appearance of wrinkles
An increase of balanced skin moisture
Fewer stretch marks
Fewer blemishes
More elastic skin
More energy

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommends a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, because these foods are nutrient-packed. Heres what someone can find in this naturally occurring bounty;

Vitamin B - Each B vitamin has a unique skin care benefit
Vitamin B1 - Fights skin damage from free radicals
Vitamin B2 - Clears blemishes
Vitamin B3 - promotes exfoliation and moisture retention
Vitamin B5 - promotes exfoliation
Vitamin B12- promotes skin cell repair
Vitamin K - fixes skin damage and brightens the appearance
Vitamin C - retains skin elasticity
Vitamin E - heals and protects skin
Vitamin A - fights against wrinkles

Consume these vitamins every day from foods such as green leafy vegetables, lean meats in moderate portions, egg whites, rice, some fruits, and oatmeal.

As a rule, avoid processed foods (anything that comes from a factory and includes ingredients an average person cant pronounce); instead, shop for fresh and healthy foods. Also avoid greasy and fried foods.
Why swallow so many pills when you dont have to? Vitamins can be expensive, while fruits, vegetables, and whole grains are affordable. Hit the produce section of your local grocery store and start eating health today.
