Wishing you could keep the flawless smooth skin we are all born with.
The saying as smooth as a baby’s bottom is a good one.
And although there are many ways we can look after our skin and preserve the glowing, youthful firmness that we all begin with, knowing what vitamins we need to maintain our skins youth is the real key.
So here we go, in alphabetical order.
1. Vitamin A- The Skin Vitamin
A must have if your skin has been feeling scaly and dry and perfect for those who are suffering from acne Vitamin A will help the skin rebuild tissue and can heal scares, wounds and other damages to the skin.
Patients who also suffer from the skin disease psoriasis are often advised to apply retinoids (a form of Vitamin A) to regulate cellular growth.
Treating fine wrinkles, skin roughness, and mottled hyper-pigmentation caused by ageing and sun exposure Vitamin A is one integral ingredient your skincare products should contain.
And our Power Lift Wrinkle Zero Night Renewal Booster Cream is a great example of the benefits.
When it comes to food, Vitamin A can be found in eggs, leafy greens, milk, carrots and pumpkin to name a few.
2. Vitamin B- The Circulation Booster
Brightening dull and pale skin Vitamin B1 can boost circulation in the body and is the ingredient responsible for giving your skin a certain glow. Egg yolks, nuts and raisins are great sources of Vitamin B1.
Preventing acne, Niacin of Vitamin B3 helps your skin receive plenty of oxygen and Niacin-rich foods include tomatoes, broccoli and carrots.
Now for the dry skin sufferers your answer can be found in Vitamin B5 which is known to help with tissue repair and can bind moisture to the skin and can be found in bananas.
And our own Endless Youth Midnight Magic Cell Serum shares these benefits with all our skincare shoppers.
3. Vitamin C- The Collagen Booster
Stimulating the production of collagen and making our skin supple, Vitamin C is a rich protein, plumping collagen and improving elastin.
Vitamin C is also known as absorbic acid and is found in citrus fruits and dark, leafy vegetables. Water-soluble, vitamin C is also an effective antioxidant and therefore can help you battle the signs of skin ageing.
Demonstrating the power of this amazing vitamin is our Power Lift Wrinkle Zero Day Refining Serum.
And in the supermarket, this vitamin can easily be purchased in the form of broccoli, cauliflower, tomato, brussel sprouts and cucumber.
4. Vitamin D- The Skin Strengthener
Aiding in skin function and acne, as goes for most vitamins, the natural supply of D decreases with age, so using skincare containing it will boost elasticity, stimulate collagen production and enhance radiance.
Known as the glow giver, Vitamin D comes from sun exposure and here in Melbourne, Australia is it commonly found that the majority are dangerously deficient.
So providing the perfect balance between protection and absorption is our Eclipse Age Defence Daily Face Balm with SPF 15.
5. Vitamin E- The Protector
An effective antioxidant fighting free radicals in your body, Vitamin E is an important anti-ageing nutrient fighting the appearance of age spots, wrinkles, stretch marks and lines.
This cell protector is a common protectant that should be used before sun exposure.
Interestingly, supporting evidence shows that when included with Vitamin C in formulations, a more active level of vitamin E is maintained.
Vitamin E can be found in super foods such as avocado, olives, sunflower seeds, peanuts, almonds, wheat germ and leafy greens.
