Vitamins are not only weapons in the fight against various types of infections and diseases of the body, but also very effective fighters for healthy and beautiful skin. Vitamins A, C, K, B3 and B5 are very effective in combating many external and internal factors that damage the skin.
Ascorbic acid, known as vitamin C, has been the first in the list of the most popular ingredients added to cosmetic products in the last few years. This vitamin is effective as an antioxidant, that is, it is a natural defense against free radicals and unstable molecules that affect skin aging, and arise as a result of environmental pollution, smoking and exposure to the sun.
Vitamin C can protect the skin from damage caused by harmful ultraviolet rays that occur after long-lasting sunbathing. Also, vitamin C has the ability to stimulate the synthesis of collagen, a protein important for strengthening the structure and elasticity of the skin.
This vitamin helps in the century-old fight against wrinkles. It is common knowledge that wrinkles can not be hidden with any kind of makeup. You will have much greater success if you decide to improve the condition of your skin using products containing vitamin A or retinol.
Vitamin B3 and B5
Vitamins B3 (niacin) and B5 (pantothenic acid) are common ingredients for skin care products. They have the ability to help retain moisture on the skin.
Vitamin B3 is a relatively new ingredient in the cosmetic market, but it is a kind of alternative to skin peeling products that contain glycolic and salicylic acid.
Vitamin B5 is the most common ingredient in cosmetic preparations and together with vitamin E is known for having excellent moisturizing properties. Also, vitamin B5 is used by those who have sensitive skin, unlike vitamin E that can irritate the skin. No vitamin B5 has been observed to have negative effects.
Vitamin E (alpha tocopherol) is another powerful antioxidant that is often used in lotions and creams due to its exceptional ability to moisturize the skin. Although in the meantime, the initial astonishment of cosmetics by vitamin E has decreased, yet it is an ingredient that proves to retain moisture on the skin.
This vitamin is effective in the fight against modern undercoats, so cosmetics are recommended to put on the skin before going to bed. Also, vitamin K is good at fighting the color loss of places under the eyes. Vitamin K penetrates through the pores and reaches the damaged capillaries and arteries, helping to clot the blood. In this way it prevents the formation of dark undercoats, and allows the tissue to heal quickly. Otherwise, vitamin C affects the reduction of darkened areas. These two vitamins (C and K) give excellent results when they come together in preparations for the fight against pain.
