Vitamins For Healthy Skin

donkey milk soap benefits

Your skin is not one to keep secrets. As the body’s largest organ, it can reveal a lot about your inner health and wellbeing - hydration, sleep quality, digestion, stress levels and rate of cellular generation. Taking proper care of your skin helps to maintain a radiant, and youthful appearance. However, it means understanding exactly what vitamins and minerals your skin needs, and the difference they can make.

Vitamins are essential micronutrients that aid the functioning of the metabolism. That’s right! The metabolism is not just a conversion of food into energy; however, it encompasses every chemical reaction within the body.

In fact, the skin has its own metabolism. Skin metabolism refers to the biological processes that occur amongst the epidermal and dermal cells to regulate the rate of cell turnover, collagen production, and repair any damage that occurs due to UV light or aging. Providing the skin with vitamins such as vitamin A, B, C, D, and E, can increase the skins metabolic rate, ensuring your skin stays happy and healthy.

So… What vitamins are best for the skin?


Vitamin A

Vitamin A is a strong antioxidant. Antioxidants are like skin vigilantes - that help remove any free radicals in the skin. Free radicals are molecules that accumulate on the skin as a product of UV radiation, pollution, toxins, and waste from the body’s metabolic processes. They can cause inflammation, sensitivity, pronounced fine lines and ageing, and reduce the natural production of elastin and collagen.

Vitamin A - or retinol - stimulates the skin’s production of collagen. Collagen maintains the skins hydration and elasticity. As we age, collagen production slows down, causing the skin to sag and form fine lines and wrinkles. Applying vitamin A, (retinol) to the skin reverses ageing processes and increases the skins hydration and elasticity, ensuring a plump and radiant appearance.


Vitamin B

Vitamin B is needed to help the body maintain healthy cell regeneration. Vitamin B1, thiamine, assists in maintaining soft, glowing skin. It is essential for cell metabolism and cholesterol synthesis. Thiamine is an organic from of vitamin B best suited for irritable, acne-prone, dry skin as it actively reduces inflammation and hyper pigmentation, smoothing the overall skin texture and brightening the skin’s appearance.

Vitamin B2, riboflavin, assists in evening out the skin tone, making the skin more radiant by balancing natural oils. Regular application of B2 leaves the skin looking brightened and renewed as it promotes skin cell turnover. Riboflavin regulates the skin’s mucus secretion and reduces excessively oily skin. Similarly, vitamin B6, pyridoxine, can even out hormone imbalances and irregularities in the body which can often lead to acne or breakouts. Making vitamin B a regular in your skincare routine will leave you with healthy, effortlessly radiant skin, add it to the list!


Vitamin C

Aside from its immune-boosting benefits, Vitamin C contains antioxidant properties that are involved with in tissue repair and collagen synthesis - healing the skin. Vitamin C assists in the repair of damaged tissues and cells by stimulating collagen production and cell turnover - essential for bright, healthy skin. Vitamin C can restrict the enzyme that produces large amounts of melanin, allowing the skin tone to be evened by minimising hyperpigmentation and dark spots - visibly brightening the skin for a more radiant appearance.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D - the ‘sunshine vitamin’ is essential in skin protection and rejuvenation. In its active form, calcitriol, vitamin D assists in cell growth and repair, and maintains the skins natural metabolism. While enhancing the skin’s natural immune system, vitamin D plays an essential role in destroying free radicals that can cause signs of premature ageing.


Vitamin E

Another free radical fighter, this essential vitamin is produced and secreted by your sebum (the oily protective substance on the outer layer of the skin) to help protect the surface of your skin and prevent inflammation. Vitamin E is an active ‘photoprotector’, photoprotection is the process that helps prevent/absorb molecular damage caused by sunlight. Vitamin E applied to the skin topically assists in nourishing and protecting your skin from any damage caused by free radicals - to ensure your skin maintains a youthful appearance.
