Vitamin A is a powerful ingredient and is well known for its anti-ageing properties. There are many by-products of Vitamin A, however the most well-known is retinol. If you are concerned about wrinkles then this vitamin is the one for you as it helps increase cellular turnover, supports skin repair, and rejuvenates the skin leaving it firmer and more youthful. Vitamin A also helps to regulate oil production and if you are suffering from Keratosis Pilaris (those small goose-like bumps found on the back of the arms and thighs, then you are most likely lacking in this vitamin.
We cannot produce this vitamin ourselves, but it is essential for the body and skin, making it a product that everyone wants and loves. It can be used on a variety of skin types whether the skin is dull, dry, inflamed, congested, oily etc. It keeps skin soft, healthy, glowing and it reduces inflammation. With powerful anti-bacterial benefits, it helps to improve complexion, reduces large pores, and decreases blemishes. As it strengthens our skin’s barrier function, it helps to prevent against premature ageing and helps treat hyper-pigmentation as it slows down the process of melanin reaching the skin’s surface.
This vitamin helps to recover your dull skin making it glow and appear brighter. It is a great antioxidant to help prevent pollution affecting the skin. Vitamin C is vital for collagen production which is responsible for keeping skin plump, supple and it helps to lessen the appearance of brown spots and the signs of sun damage.
Vitamin D is important for our health. We can obtain it by exposing our skin to the sun as the sun’s UVB rays stimulate the skin to produce vitamin D. However, too much of this can cause long-term damage to your skin. This vitamin helps to calm inflammation, protect the skin, and improve cell turnover. Some people have a vitamin D deficiency meaning they are not getting enough exposure to sunlight. A vitamin D supplement can be taken to help increase that exposure.
This vitamin is another powerful antioxidant. Vitamin E will protect your skin daily against things such as pollution, sun exposure and free radicals that lead to premature ageing. Vitamin E is a good all-rounder, it has hydrating and healing properties making it especially good for dry and sensitive skin types.
The above is something to think about when your skin isn’t quite playing ball. You might want to consider that it is not getting the nutrition that it needs…. Vitamins are best for skin and your complexion.
