How Vitamins Can Affect Your Skin

 This is a sponsored post. All opinions are 100% mine.

Current research studies show that vitamins can be very beneficial for preventing and reversing the signs of aging skin. Although a healthy diet is important, it can only deliver a certain percentage of vitamins to your skin. As a supplement, topical creams and lotions can help to deliver maximum anti-aging benefits. They aid in improving skin texture, even skin tones, and dark under-eye circles. 

Vitamin A

Vitamin A is proven to reduce wrinkles, fade ugly brown spots, and smooth and soften rough skin. Vitamin A creams contain retinoids, an ingredient that contributes to younger looking skin. When using vitamin A creams and lotions, it's best to apply them at night because sunlight can deactivate the benefits of vitamin A. Although prescription retinoid creams work faster, they can cause redness and skin irritation. If you want to try some of these creams, over-the-counter versions are less irritating.

Vitamin B3

Vitamin B3 increases skin hydration and reduces redness. The key ingredient to look for in creams and lotions is niacinamide. By adding moisture to your skin, it becomes stronger and more subtle. Vitamin B3 is great for dry skin, rosacea and dark spots that often appear with age. For best results, you should apply vitamin B3 creams and lotions in the morning and evening. For a super skin boost, you can also mix vitamin A retinoid creams with vitamin B3 creams without any harmful effects. 

Vitamin C

Vitamin C has a lot of powerful anti-aging ingredients. It helps to prevent wrinkles and sagging skin and fades brown spots. It's known to soak up harmful free radicals that cause damage to healthy skin. When using vitamin C creams and lotions, look for a concentration of 5 percent or higher for maximum benefits. You can apply topical vitamin C creams and lotions any time day or night with no harmful side effects. Studies show that using vitamin C creams and lotions for six months or longer can have significant impact on improving your skin health. 

Vitamin E

Vitamin E helps your skin retain natural moisture and fight off dryness. It's used in most sunscreens and is one of the best anti-aging products on the market. When using vitamin E creams, look for products that contain at least one percent of vitamin E for maximum benefits. You can apply it any time, but it should always be applied before and after sun exposure. Studies show that just one exposure to strong sun and UV light can destroy half of your skin's natural supply of vitamin E. 

Taking vitamins and using topical vitamin creams and lotions can significantly improve skin health.
