Brief Answer:
Foods XXXXXXX in Vitamin A and K

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

I am medical doctor, an associate in Department of Dermatology, working with an experienced Dermatologist. I answer on his behalf.

Vitamin A is essential for regeneration of dead skin and prevent scarring. The acne/pimples are usually seen due to plugging of the sebaceous ducts with dead skin which is prevented by Vit A.

Also Vitamin K moisturizes skin and prevents dryness and maintains the health.

Hence do consume foods containing Vit A like milk, eggs, liver, fortified cereals, darkly colored orange or green vegetables (such as carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, and kale) etc

Foods containing Vit E like egg yolks and many nuts, seeds, fruits and vegetables etc

Hope, I answered your query.
