Vitamin A is a family of compounds that play an important role in vision, bone growth, reproduction, cell division, and cell differentiation. We get vitamin A from a variety of sources. Two of the most common sources are retinol and beta-carotene. It is essential for good health. It can be found in many fruits, vegetables, eggs, whole milk, butter, fortified margarine, meat, and oily saltwater fish. It can also be made synthetically.
There are two most common sources of vitamin A: retinol and beta-carotene.
Retinol is nearly ready for the body to absorb and is found in animal foods such as liver, eggs and fatty fish.
Beta – Carotene is a precursor for Vitamin A. The body has to convert it into retinol. All orange and dark green fresh foods contain beta-carotene.

Up to 8% of those who had clear skin in their youth develop acne as adults. Fortunately there are a variety of ways to control outbreaks – no matter how old you are when they occur.
How does acne present itself: Pimples and other skin eruptions are the hallmark of acne, which can be a chronic condition of the face, back, chest, neck shoulders and even other areas of the body. The most common form (Acne vulgaris) encompasses blackheads, white heads and raised red blemishes with semi-solid centres. In severe cases (Cystic acne) clusters of painful, fluid-filled cysts or firm unsightly eruptions appear causing permanent pitting and scarring.
