Don’t forget to take your vitamins!

Nowadays you can find a vitamin for just about anything, so it’s no surprise that there are tons of vitamins that help keep you looking and feeling beautiful! The great thing about these vitamins is that you can find them in just about every drug store, and they work naturally with the chemicals in your body to keep you happy and healthy. Here are my personal picks for the top 5 best vitamins for your skin, and why you need them!

Vitamin A / Retinol

Retinol is a variation of Vitamin A that has endless benefits for your skin. Retinol is a gentler form of retinoic acid, which we produce naturally in our bodies to help cells grow. So, what does this mean for your skin? Vitamin A helps your skin heal on a cellular level, replacing the old cells with brand new ones to improve the texture of your skin. Vitamin A is also an anti-inflammatory, which means it can help calm your breakouts; It helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles, too! The best part about Vitamin A (especially retinol) is that once your skin has absorbed the retinol, it can be stored for later or when you really need it… so your skin will use every bit of it!

Vitamin B3-Niacinamide

If you have sensitive skin, you should give Vitamin B3 a try. Vitamin B3 (AKA Niacinamide) is incredibly gentle, which means it’s beneficial to just about every skin type. Niacinamide helps to control and moderate your oil production, and you’ll definitely notice a glow- B3 brightens skin, and it can even help reduce dark spots and hyperpigmentation. Because it’s so gentle, you can use Vitamin B3 day or night, and it should fit right into your normal skincare routine!

Vitamin B5- Pantothenic Acid

Vitamin B5 (AKA Pantothenic Acid) is a must-use if you are prone to oily skin or breakouts. Not only does Vitamin B5 help regulate excess oil, but it’s also an anti-inflammatory, so it reduces the irritation and redness that comes with acne. It’s super hydrating, too, so it won’t dry your skin out. Vitamin B5 also helps to restore your skin’s barrier, which means fewer breakouts in the future and healthier-feeling skin!

Vitamin C

As far as skincare vitamins go, Vitamin C is one of the most researched of the bunch, and it comes highly recommended! Vitamin C is an antioxidant that shields our skin against free radicals, which are tiny molecules that work to age and damage our skin. In addition to its anti-aging properties, Vitamin C also helps to brighten and reduce hyperpigmentation and sunspots. Just be sure to store your Vitamin C in a cool place with minimum exposure to sunlight. The most commonly used form of Vitamin C, ascorbic acid, is sensitive to light and air so too much exposure to either can reduce its effectiveness. But don’t let that stop you from getting your hands on some of this skincare wonder… BONUS! Look for Vitamin C products that contain Niacinamide. These two ingredients are a match made in skincare heaven, and when used together, both perform at their best!

Vitamin E

If hydration is your goal, Vitamin E should definitely be on your skincare list. Vitamin E is an antioxidant (just like Vitamin C), so it’s a great way to help repair and heal your skin. Vitamin E is a perfect boost of moisture for your skin, and when paired with your sunscreen, it can help protect against harmful UV rays. Vitamin E is also a natural method for reducing scars and stretch marks, and it’s gentle enough to use on your face and your body. Use Vitamin E on your lips as a hydrating mask to help combat chapped lips, or to wake up tired, wrinkled under eyes!

I hope this list of my top 5 vitamins for your skin helps you on your path to discovering your best skin! Just keep in mind with these vitamins, as with any skincare products, to listen to your skin… skincare needs are personal and unique, and make sure your products and supplements are meeting those needs! Your skin knows best, and you’ll know when you’ve found the perfect skincare lineup.
