Vitamins play an important role in skin and hair. Vitamins from our diet enter our bloodstream and feed the skin. But that is not enough. It is necessary to apply it on the top through skincare creams, lotions and serums. Let’s see Which vitamins are good for your skin depending on your skin problems.
Vitamin A is also known as Retinol. It is added to creams to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It can be used for all skin types. If you are using it, make sure to use only a maximum of 0.2% retinol and 0.01% of retinaldehyde. Retinaldehyde is the best as it is 20 times more effective than retinol. The best combination is vitamin A with glycolic acid.
Vitamin B (B3 and B5)
Vitamin B3 is also known as Niacinamide. It helps to tighten up the look by boosting the skin’s healthy quality. Niacinamide is a water-soluble vitamin that works with the natural substances in the skin to help visibly minimize enlarged pores, improve uneven skin tone, soften fine lines and wrinkles, diminish dullness and strengthen a weakened surface. It is mostly in creams and serums. It can be used for all skin types.
