When it comes to your skin, we all know the wonders that natural sources can provide, and within any beauty or health regime – vitamins, minerals and nutrients should form a key factor!
However, if you’re still struggling with creating a skincare regime that’s full of particular vitamins to boost your skin from within, here’s a short guide to keeping you looking and feeling skin-wonderful!
Aka The Anti-Ager
Vitamin A is a fantastic antioxidant for skin, and helps to stimulate collagen and fibroblast production throughout skin cells. This production encourages skin to appear younger, softer and increases elasticity, a great way to soften lines and wrinkles – making vitamin A the nearest thing we have to a fountain of youth!
It’s recommended to start upping your vitamin A in your 20’s, preventing free radical damage.
AKA The Hydrator and Redness-Reducer
Vitamin B3 boosts ceramide production and strengthens the skin’s natural barrier, encouraging the locking in of moisture and the locking out of irritants and pollutants. Vitamin B3 has also been known to help with post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, especially scarring from acne, and works to even out the skin tone.
Vitamin B3 is ideal for anyone who has dry or sensitive skin, as the skin’s moisture barrier which typically starts to weaken in your 30s and 40s.
AKA The Brightener
Vitamin C is an antioxidant proven to be highly effective at inhibiting free radicals that cause wrinkles, sagging and early-aging. Vitamin C comes in various types to suit various skin issues, although the general rule is that if you suffer from dry or sensitive skin – you may be better off with a more stable form, also known as a no-sting formula, due to the high acidity of most Vitamin C sources.
Vitamin C’s most common form is fruit juice, and people of all ages should try to adapt vitamin C sources into their daily diet.
AKA The Moisturiser
Vitamin E is an antioxidant that reduces the formation of free radicals, and works to strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier, making it a key factor for the treatment of stretch marks and scars. Vitamin E is present in most after-sun products, and also offers inflammation qualities.
