Best Vitamins for Skin
Vitamin C and E

Prolonged sunlight exposure can result in skin cancer and skin aging. This can be reduced with a topical application of vitamin C. In addition, a daily dosage of vitamin E supplementation of 400 grams has been shown to improve skin texture, reduce wrinkles and photo damage.

Also, a harmful byproduct of smoke, pollutants, and sunlight known as free radicals, can be reduced with a daily dosage of the vitamins C and E. Free radicals have the adverse effects of gobbling up elastin and collagen, which constitute skin-supporting fiber structures, which will in turn cause wrinkles.
You are advised to use a lotion that combines these vitamins as they profoundly protect the skin from sunlight damage.
If you are interested in a natural absorbsion of vitamin C, citrus fruits and vitamin C rich vegetables such as broccoli, bell peppers, leafy greens, and cauliflower are good sources of the vitamin.
