A vitamin-rich ingredient list is as important in your beauty routine as it is in your diet. We’ve broken down the importance of vitamins, and what they mean for your beauty products.
Vitamin A may be the closest thing we have to the fountain of youth. Of all the vitamins found in cosmetics, vitamin A is the best supported by evidence. It clears acne and psoriasis, reverses photoageing, enhances skin cell turnover and delivers collagen-boosting, anti-ageing effects to the skin. Vitamin A belongs to a large class of compounds known as retinoids, so choose skincare containing common vitamin A derivatives such as retinol and retinyl palmitate to help minimize fine lines and even skin tone and texture.
