Get Glowing with These Vitamins

To achieve glowing skin, there are certain things you can do to maximize the skin you were born with. One would be infusing several ingredients in your skincare routine like the ones below.

Vitamin A

According to dermatologists, vitamin A is considered as one of the most important ingredients in skincare. It has the ability to normalize how skin cell’s function, meaning they can influence the cells to behave in a younger and healthier way--leaving skin looking more youthful and radiant. It also effectively balances out oil production, speeds up healing, prevents breakouts, promotes collagen production, and hydrates the skin.

Vitamin B3

Vitamin B3, also known as niacinamide, has become a cult-favorite ingredient among skincare enthusiasts because of the many concerns it can address. It’s an essential nutrient that helps treat acne and redness, minimizes the appearance of large pores, brightens dark spots caused by UV damage, and prevents hyperpigmentation.

Vitamin B5

Another name that vitamin B5 might be known for is panthenol. Dermatologists explain that panthenol is a provitamin or a substance that when applied to the skin, can convert into vitamin B5. Unlike other moisturizing ingredients, vitamin B5 acts as both a humectant and an emollient. This means that it attracts and binds water to the skin, and seals in the cracks—keeping water locked in.

Vitamin C

Though it’s more known to strengthen the immune system, vitamin C does wonders for the skin, too. Dermatologists shared that it’s a potent antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals, which can help repair damaged skin cells. Vitamin C’s skin-saving benefits include preventing dark spots from forming, and addressing rough texture, fine lines, and acne scars.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is another antioxidant that’s very effective at reducing skin damages caused by UV rays, according to dermatologists and medical journals. When applied to the skin, it nourishes and protects against free radicals, also known as unstable atoms in the body that damage cells and cause illness and aging.
