The topical application of vitamin rich skincare can counteract many skin concerns. Read our guide below to get the lowdown on vitamins and their skincare benefits.
WHAT ARE VITAMINS?
Vitamins are organic compounds which are essential micro-nutrients.
VITAMIN A encourages healthy skin cell production, it stimulates fibroblasts, the cells responsible for developing tissue that keeps skin firm and healthy, in the deep layers of your skin.
VITAMIN B3 (also known as Nicotinic Acid and Niacinamide) plays an important role in cellular energy production. It is a very effective skin-restoring ingredient that offers many benefits for mature skin - it can visibly improve the appearance of enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, fine lines and skin dullness.
VITAMIN B5 (also known as Calcium Pantothenate) excels at maintaining moisture levels within the skin, as well as helping to keep skin soft and smooth. It's an anti-inflammatory, so works to reduce skin redness and irritation, and promotes healing.
VITAMIN C is the anti-ageing superstar, it's key in the synthesis of elastin and collagen, and is also a potent antioxidant that can neutralise free radicals in the skin, helping to prevent the signs of ageing. It can help to lessen the appearance of acne marks and scars. Vitamin C also brightens and reduces areas of pigmentation.
VITAMIN E is a powerful antioxidant that protects the skin from environmental pollution and helps prevent the signs of premature ageing. It also has excellent skin moisturising properties, helping to prevent transepidermal water-loss by the skin, thereby increasing the skin's natural moisture content.
Combining a healthy, balanced diet with topical active skincare can bring fantastic results. All our formulations are rich in vitamins, as well as many other actives, visit the product pages to find out more:
