LET’S TALK VITAMINS, SHALL WE?
We all know we need our daily dose of vitamins for our bodies to function properly and how important it is to eat a balanced and healthy diet every day. This chapter is not going to be about those types of vitamins but rather the ones that you can find in your day cream or night serum. We know the benefits vitamins have on our bodies, but what are the beauty benefits?
AN EASY GUIDE TO VITAMINS
There are eight different types of vitamin B that co-exist to produce cellular energy. Beauty-wise, B vitamins help your hair, skin, and nails stay healthy and when it is incorporated in the formulation of your cream it helps:
- boost the immunity of your skin and create an epidermal barrier to fight against external aggressions
- protects from the effects of aging
- improves redness and blotching
- regulate sebum
- reduce hyperpigmentation
- improve dull or dry skin

Vitamin C is another antioxidant vitamin and protects your body from free radicals. It’s also great support for your body because it boosts the absorption of iron (ladies, we all know what that means). Having vitamin C in your beauty products:
- promoted hair growth
- plumps the skin
- makes your nails longer & stronger
- maintains youthful skin
- helps protect your skin from sun damage (it only HELPS – sun cream is still a MUST)

Vitamin E is a vitamin that protects our cells from oxidation and protects our cells from aging. Plus it’s meant to be one of the most powerful vitamins to prevent cancer, heart diseases, high blood pressure. Although it does sound like the superhero of all vitamins you take too much of it, it will do more harm than good – so keep your intake balanced.
However, in the world of beauty, there’s no such thing as too much! Slather away that cream on your skin because Vitamin E will:
- reverse premature skin-aging
- treat stretch marks
