The properties of Vitamin A

Vitamin A, and more specifically, retinoic acid, maintain normal skin health by switching on genes and differentiating keratinocytes (immature skin cells) into mature epidermal cells. For the treatment of acne, the most prescribed retinoid drug is 13-cis retinoic acid (isotretinoin). It reduces the size and secretion of the sebaceous glands.

Beta-Carotene

β-carotene is a precursor (inactive form) to vitamin A. Absorption efficiency is estimated to be between 9 and 22%. The absorption and conversion of carotenoids may depend on the form of β-carotene (e.g., cooked vs. raw vegetables, or in a supplement), the intake of fats and oils at the same time, and the current stores of vitamin A and β-carotene in the body.
