We know that to have a healthy body inside and out, you need to supplement with vitamins. Just how you take care of your body with vitamins, you need to also take care of your skin with vitamins in your skincare products. I’m a huge fan of what I call ‘vitamin-driven skincare. This skincare contains vitamins A, C, and E and other ingredients that are thought to have beneficial effects on the skin. I also love how some of these products are formulated with natural ingredients rather than synthetic ones. This blog will look at the importance of vitamins in skincare products and share some of my top picks.
Vitamin C is one of my absolute favorite ingredients, and I cannot go a day without it. Vitamin C is a collagen builder, a lightening & brightening agent, and an antioxidant. As an antioxidant, Vitamin C helps to defend our skin against free radicals. It can help to reverse and protect against common signs of aging. Try our powerhouse Ferulic+C Antioxidant Serum to give your skin the luminosity it is missing.
Vitamin A has derivatives known as retinoids. Retinol amps up cellular turnover to help fight the aging process.This power boost also helps speed up cellular turnover to keep pores unclogged, reducing acne breakouts. Retinol can combat fine lines and wrinkles by increasing collagen, brightening dull skin, fading pigment, improving skin texture, and reducing acne. We have added peptides to our Encapsulated Oligopeptide Serum to enhance your anti-aging results further.
Vitamin E is a lipid-based antioxidant found in many skin care products to protect your skin’s barrier. It helps to moisturize the skin and soften skin cells. It is rich in antioxidants and reduces irritation from pollution and sun damage. Pairing incredibly well with Vitamin C, Vitamin E can boost the antioxidant effects creating a double dose of skin rejuvenating and brightening results. Find it in our Ferulic+C Antioxidant Serum and our Azulene Treatment Cream.
These are some of the must-have vitamins in my skincare regimen. Don’t forget to take care of your skin; you only get one—supplement by taking vitamins and applying topically in your favorite Beautiful by Storm skincare products.
