SKIN HEALTH continued

B VITAMINS:  are also important for skin health, especially riboflavin (B2) and pantothenic acid (B5) as they are reported to reduce facial oiliness.  Indeed many nutritional deficiencies of the B vitamins can be detected through skin health, such as, cracking at the corner of the mouth can be a deficiency of B2 and B6, as can red greasy skin at the side of the nose.  Low levels of B12 and folic acid can result in a pale complexion and a general deficiency of the B vitamins is implicated in eczema

CHROMIUM:  it is thought that the skin’s glucose tolerance is significantly impaired in those with acne, which makes chromium a particularly important nutrient in this situation.
