I recently blogged about the benefits of using a Vitamin C skincare product which got me thinking about the importance of other vitamins when it comes to skincare. It seems that when it comes to vitamins, Vitamin C isn’t the only one with benefits, here are some others:
Vitamin B Complex: Taking a Vitamin B Complex or foods rich in Vitamin B (oats, potatoes, avocados, eggs, lentils) can help with tightening sagging skin. Adding a skincare product containing Vitamin B can improve your overall skin tone and help to keep it hydrated.
Vitamin A: This is probably the most well-known vitamin for skincare. When you take in adequate amounts of Vitamin A, the skin produces more collagen and as a result assists with keeping the skin plump. Adding a Vitamin A derived skincare product to your regimen can increase collagen production, help diminish fine lines and tighten the skin.
Vitamin E: Vitamin E is known for its anti-aging prevention and its ability to safeguard the skin against free radical damage. Vitamin E not only tightens the skin but infuses moisturizing properties into the skin.
Vitamin K: Vitamin K is probably best known for remedying dark circles. As we age, our skin gets thinner and collagen production decreases causing loss of elasticity. Vitamin K assists with maintaining the acid protein in our skin and assist with wrinkle prevention.
If you are interested in adding vitamins to your skincare routine, I suggest checking out your local healthfood store. One of my favorite (and affordable) vitamin based skincare lines is Dermae. On the Dermae website you can search for products by key ingredients.
Whether you choose to increase your vitamin intake through supplements, eating more vitamin enriched foods or adding a topical vitamin skincare product to your regimen, you can’t go wrong with vitamins and the overall effect it can have on your skin.
