Looking your best is almost everyone’s motive these days. Vitamin deficiency may not be the first thing that comes to mind if you develop a skin condition, but many vitamin deficiencies cause skin problems. Because vitamins play such an important role in so many health areas, including tissue maintenance, vitamin deficiencies often manifest themselves in acne-like rashes, cracking or discolored skin or skin hemorrhages that resemble bruising. Skin disorders can be a good indicator of overall health, including vitamin deficiencies.

Vitamin E is thought to help improve skin health and fade skin discoloration because it is essential for the processing of vitamin A.

In a 2008 study published in the “Journal of the American Dietetic Association,” 30 healthy women were studied on two separate occasions in which they ate at two different rates. The subjects used scales to rate factors such as their hunger, satiety, thirst, desire to eat and the deliciousness of their meals. When they consumed their meals slowly, they ate significantly fewer calories and consumed significantly more water than when they ate at a faster rate. Additionally, they were less likely to feel satiated when they ate quickly.
