The 5 benefits of vitamin A on the skin

Among the many advantages of enjoying any of the products available at Caña Nature, one of the most important is to take advantage of their vitamin content through their ingredients.

Vitamin A, for example, is one of the most present, as you can find it in high concentrations in ingredients such as avocado, tomato or garlic, present in many of our recipes.

What are the main positive effects of vitamin A on the skin?


Vitamin A is one of the most important vitamins for the human body, given the numerous benefits it can offer, especially for the skin.

Among them, it stands out as an excellent antioxidant. An optimal intake of vitamin A helps to reduce the signs of ageing such as wrinkles and skin blemishes.

Its contribution is also recommended to improve the smoothness of the skin, in fact it stands out for its healing capacity, which helps to keep it always in the best possible condition.

For serious skin problems, such as acne for example, vitamin A also achieves very effective results.

Not only when the problem is already present, but also as a preventive measure. Vitamin A strengthens our immune system, which is why eating food containing vitamin A also reduces the likelihood of suffering from infections or diseases of various kinds.

In general, vitamin A is also an important ally for the maintenance of the skin. With adequate levels, skin can be kept more hydrated, firmer and fresher. These benefits are especially useful for dry skin.

What effects does a lack of vitamin A have on the skin?

Vitamin A deficiency can have serious consequences on both our skin and our body in general.

We have already indicated above that without it our immune system is not fully strengthened. This can increase the likelihood of more infections and diseases, but it also affects the skin’s ability to heal.

Another effect of a lack of vitamin A is that the skin may feel drier or rougher. This is because a lack of vitamin A can cause follicular hyperkeratosis, which creates keratin plugs blocking the hair follicles in the skin. The result is a “goose bumps” effect that can affect the whole body, mainly on the forearms and thighs.

Vitamin A, on the other hand, has among its benefits helping in the production of collagen. On the other hand, a lack of vitamin A can reduce the production capacity of this protein, which is so necessary for a healthy and rejuvenated appearance of the skin.

How to take vitamin A for the skin?

It is possible to increase the amount of vitamin A in our body with vitamin supplements, but the most natural way to get it is through a healthy diet.

At Caña Nature you can take advantage of vitamin A from many of the options available in our catalogue. Some of the ingredients with the highest concentrations of vitamin A are tomato, avocado and garlic.

Tomato is present in our recipes for gazpacho, salmorejo, salsa mex and obviously in our grated tomato, while avocado can be found in our different guacamole options and avocado pulp. Garlic, on the other hand, is a key ingredient in gazpacho, salmorejo, salsa mex and guacamole.
