The A-Z of skincare: boost your beauty regime with vitamins for flawless skin
Get the lowdown on our 3 ultimate vitamins to rejuvenate your skin
We’re attune to the importance of taking in vitamins with our diet, helping our bodies to perform at their most effectively for proper growth and functioning. However, scientists have now discovered ways to enrich our skincare products with beautifying vitamins, to harness the power of these extraordinary nutrients and transfer them directly to our epidermis for flawless skin. Although there are a whole host of vitamins out there to upgrade our moisturizers, serums and lotions, here are our top 3 to really give your skin a boost
Vitamin E – to replenish and protect
Found in almonds, avocado and sweet potato, vitamin E is great for our diets, however it also acts as a skincare hero for those with sensitive, dry skin. According to skin expert Lorraine Scrivener, vitamin E never fails to deliver softer, more hydrated skin to keep your complexion looking plump and smooth. Furthermore, research conducted by Keen and Hassan on Vitamin E in dermatology have found that it also contains effective antioxidants, which are known for protecting against pollution and other environmental stressors. Vitamin E acts like a shield against free radicals, illuminating your skin by protecting and replenishing your skin, and there’s no better way to get your daily dose of this nutrient than with Aquasource SPF15 . This multi-protective and ultra-light gel-cream is also enriched with Mannose to further accentuate moisture replenishment to leave your skin hydrated for up to 48 hours in one application. Furthermore, its combination with shea extract and Life Plankton helps to heal and repair your skin for a rejuvenated complexion.
Vitamin B3 – to refine skin texture
Vitamin B3 is the vitamin for flawless skin. Kate Kerr, clinical facialist, explains that vitamin B3 helps to prevent and improve signs of redness or hyperpigmentation by slowing down the transportation of melanin to the skin’s surface. Furthermore, its natural affinity for our skin’s membrane makes it highly effective in improving the natural barrier to lock in moisture and keep skin hydrated throughout the day. But that’s not all. Researchers at the State University of New York found that when applied topically, vitamin B3 had an antibiotic effect to reduce inflammation, improve skin congestion and prevent the adhesion of bacteria for healthy, flawless skin. If you’re looking to put some B3 into your life then look no further than the Aquasource Total Eye Revitalizer. When applied to the delicate skin around the eyes, this beautifying vitamin helps to fight against dark circles. This refreshing eye awakener combines this power with Caffeine, Sakura leaf extract and blurring polymers to work deep within the skin and achieve soothed, de-puffed and radiant under eyes – in fact, your complexion will instantly feel refreshed, clinically proven to cool by -2°C within two minutes of application.
Life Plankton Essence – to heal your skin
OK, so we’re very aware this is not technically a vitamin in itself, however we cannot deny the power of this powerful organism, which is concentrated in a blend of 35 vitamins and nutrients to repair and rejuvenate your skin. This effective blend is actively concentrated within Life Plankton Essence and penetrates deep within the skin to trigger cellular renewal for targeted healing. By using it as a fundamental step in your skincare regimen, both morning and night before your other products, skin will feel as if re-born in as little as 8 days.
