- Skin rash and hair lossIf you lose your hair and you notice the appearance of unexplained rash on your face or other parts of your body, you’re probably lacking in vitamin B7 (biotin), known for its restorative and protective hair and skin properties.

- Red or white buttons, similar to acne, on the face, arms, thighs and backIf you suffer from red and white buttons that resemble acne pimples, but are harder and more painful, you are probably in need of essential fatty acids, vitamin A and vitamin D.
Essential fatty acids have a role to strengthen the skin’s structure and ensure hydration, which helps maintain its elasticity and suppleness. They are also very effective against inflammations and rashes and promote healing.
Vitamin D is very beneficial to the skin because it provides moisture and protects against certain diseases such as psoriasis. As for vitamin A, it helps regenerate the cells and preserve skin tissues.
Solution: Eat more essential fatty acids and avoid saturated and trans fats. Prefer salmon, sardines, walnuts, almonds, flax and hemp seeds.
You can find pure vitamin A in green vegetables, carrots, red peppers and sweet potatoes. You can promote vitamin D synthesizing by exposing yourself to the sun.
