Vitamins To Turn Back Time
It seems that all the lotions, creams, and serums that we’re buying are fully packed with vitamins promising to help with aging. However, will these nutrients on our face really help defend against free-radical damage, and repair fine lines? Luckily, thanks to the most recent research, I have been able to find real benefits of using vitamins A, C, and E.
Retinoids, a type of Vitamin A, is like gold for our skin. Using vitamin A on our faces will work wonders. Retinoids can smooth rough patches, firm our skin, produce collagen, help discoloration, and reduce fine lines. Look for products that contain this ingredient as well as retinol and retinlyl palmitate.
The benefits of using vitamin C depend on how much you use. Vitamin C tends to break down very fast, thus the more you use, the better. Ascorbic acid is a powerful antioxidant that can decrease the signs of aging. This ingredient will also improve the overall texture and tone of your skin during the first few months of using it! The key words that you want to look for on your skin care products are tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate or ascorbyl palmitate.
Vitamin E is best for prevention. This ingredient is often used in sunscreens, as well as for photo aging and minimizing sun damage. I love using vitamin E in conjunction with vitamin C because it’s very hydrating. This vitamin is not going to help with wrinkles or texture as much, but it will be great at stopping further damage.
Although vitamins alone won’t solely change your skin, when used with other products, your skin will appear more vitalized.
