What can I do to make my skin beautiful besides using sunscreen?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD

Besides using sunscreen, the first key for beautiful skin is making sure you get plenty of vitamins A, C, and E, through diet and nutrient-rich creams. Those are the key antioxidant vitamins. They're also important, especially vitamin A, because they block some of the bad things happening underneath the skin. And they help rejuvenate -- turn on cells that make more collagen, make more elastin -- to give you that bounciness that you want.

Harvard-trained dermatologist Dr. Susan Evans says vitamin A is especially important for healthy skin. "It can make real transitions in the beginning. In fact, some of the damage you've already done -- it can turn back the clock," she says. "You see it in retinol forms. Pretty much anything like a retinyl or retinoic acid or retin is a form of vitamin A."
