Good skin starts with proper nutrition. When you take care of your body from the inside with a mix of vitamins and nutrients, the results will naturally show on your skin – a healthy and glowing look.
But even if you are already eating your fruits and vegetables, there’s nothing wrong with applying vitamins topically to enhance your complexion. In fact, it allows for greater control of your skincare routine to help tackle any skin issue you have – from dry skin to wrinkles and acne.
Here are some of the vitamins you can look for in skincare products to add a little boost in keeping your skin in good shape.
Vitamin A: For Anti-Ageing and Acne
Vitamin A helps to increase the skin’s elasticity and boost collagen production, which firms up the skin and minimises the signs of ageing. This also means fine lines and wrinkles are softened, leaving more luminous and younger-looking visage.
As Vitamin A also stimulates the skin’s natural renewal process, dead skin cells can be easily removed to prevent them from clogging the pores and leading to acne breakouts. It’s commonly present in skincare products as retinol and retin A, and it’s good for those with dark spots, fine lines and oily skin.
Vitamin B3: For Sun Damage and Pigmentation
Unprotected, long-term exposure to the sun can cause significant damage to your skin and increase the occurrence of pigmentation, fine lines and dark spots.
Vitamin B3, which can be found in niacinamide products, reduces hyperpigmentation caused by sun exposure and prevents the formation of dark spots.
Plus, it strengthens the skin barrier function to lock in moisture and keep irritants out. If you have acne-prone and oily complexions, Vitamin B3 is great for calming post-inflammatory pigmentation and controlling the production of sebum that can cause breakouts.
Vitamin C: For Brightening and Antioxidant Protection
Eating antioxidant-rich foods helps your body fight off free radicals – this works the same way for topical antioxidants to keep your skin cells healthy and protect against UV damage and environmental aggressors.
That's why Vitamin C is highly essential in skincare, as it has free-radical fighting ability and inhibits the production of melanin to prevent dark spots.
But that’s not all. Topical Vitamin C helps to promote collagen production and the regeneration of new skin cells to prevent premature ageing of the skin. This will also combat lacklustre skin and give you a brighter, glowing look.
Add our Aspure Cream into your skincare routine and strengthen your skin’s elasticity. It is formulated with Vitamin C, Jojoba Oil, and Squalane, amongst others, to deliver moisture to the skin and increase its firmness for a younger-looking appearance.
At the same time, it can also protect your skin from free radicals which causes fine lines and premature ageing.
Vitamin E: For Skin Repair and Hydration
Another great antioxidant is Vitamin E, which helps to protect against oxidative damage caused by free radicals and excessive UV exposure. It also works as a powerful hydrator to nourish and strengthen the skin barrier function, preventing dryness.
In addition, Vitamin E has healing and soothing benefits to deal with any skin irritation and inflammation.
Because it is a fat-soluble ingredient, it can penetrate deep into your skin and preserve the lipids in your face to prevent moisture from escaping. This keeps your skin hydrated with reduced appearance of fine lines.
