You’re probably familiar with taking your daily vitamins as a supplement, but have you ever thought about the benefits of topically applying them to your skin? We’re here to break down 5 different vitamins and how they can make a great impact on your skin. Let’s learn about these skin savers!
Vitamin A is a group of compounds that includes active forms (retinol, retinal, and retinoic acid) and other provitamin A carotenoids like beta-carotene. What is beta-carotene you ask? It’s a form of vitamin A that we get directly from the plant foods we eat. Yes, believe it or not, your leafy green intake can help beautify your skin!
When it comes to your skin, Vitamin A is your protector! It helps combat acne, damage from UV rays, and slows signs of aging. Got any wrinkles? Topically applying Vitamin A to your skin will help smooth out any that you may have to keep you looking forever young. Is your skin tone looking a little uneven? One of the key ingredients in our Queen Cream is Vitamin A. Not only will it hydrate your skin, it will calm it too!
In the world of Vitamin B, there’s a whopping 8 different types! Crazy, right? B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine), B7 (biotin), B9 (folic acid), and B12 (cobalamin) all contain an abundance of good qualities that will have your skin looking its best. From preventing breakouts to healing flaky skin, Vitamin B covers all the bases.

Vitamin C is the rejuvenating vitamin! It will provide antioxidant and complexion protection to keep your skin in tiptop shape. Additionally, it can also slow the breakdown of collagen which will preserve your skin’s structure. Yes please! When applied topically, it feeds your skin protective antioxidants that will fight free radical damage caused by pollution, the sun, and other factors.
Noticing fine lines? Our Glow Serum will help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as reducing discoloration or unevenness. As previously mentioned, this vitamin rejuvenates your face so say goodbye to tired looking skin!
Probably the vitamin that you are most familiar with, Vitamin D is associated with the sun. In fact, it is sometimes called the “sunshine vitamin” because our bodies naturally produce it in response to being exposed to sunlight. Vitamin D contributes to skin cell growth and repair. It also enhances your skin’s immune system and helps to destroy free radicals that can cause premature ageing. While you may want to get your tan on, always remember to protect your skin with sunscreen to avoid aging your skin.
