1. Vitamin C
Vitamin C is an incredible vitamin. From helping your immune system stay strong during cold season, to keeping your skin looking young and healthy, this nutrient is essential to your diet. Vitamin C can add density, tightness and glow to skin while evening your skin tone. Good sources of Vitamin C include papayas, broccoli, kale, oranges, strawberries, and cauliflower.
2. Vitamin A
Vitamin A will help reduce wrinkles by firming and tightening the skin. The vitamin causes cells cells to 'turn over' meaning that new cells will be brought to the surface, giving you a fresh glow. Foods like sweet potatoes, carrots, dark leafy greens, cantaloupe, and dried apricots are good sources of this vitamin.
3. Vitamin D

4. Vitamin E
This vitamin is essential for having moist skin, which will keep your skin from developing wrinkles due to dryness. Vitamin-E rich foods include tofu, spinach, nuts, avocados, shrimp, olive oil, and cooked broccoli.
5. Vitamin K
Vitamin K helps control blood clotting and helps your circulatory system, which is one of the main causes of puffiness under eyes. It also helps thicken your skin which will keep that thin, delicate area below your eyes from wrinkling as easily. Excellent sources of this vitamin include spinach, broccoli, asparagus, brussels sprouts, and collard greens!
