We all know vitamins are good for tour health, but what about our skin? We aim to explore the benefits of introducing vitamins to your everyday skincare routine, why vitamins in skincare are becoming increasingly popular now more than ever, and what products you can be using to get the vitamins you need.
Two Vitamins which have become increasingly popular in skincare treatments are vitamins C & E. These two clever vitamins help reduce skin damage caused by sunlight, smoke and pollution, which is the main cause of damage to collagen and elastin in the skin, which in turn can cause wrinkles and other signs of ageing.
With the rise in pollution and an increase in demand for anti-ageing treatments, Vitamins C & E have never been more important in everyday skincare routines and treatments.
A therapist should always incorporate Vitamin E and SPF in facial skincare treatments, particularly at the end of abrasive skin treatments such as microdermabrasion, which often leave the skin sensitive and vulnerable to UV damage.
Vitamin E in its most basic form can be found in fortified cereals, sunflower and olive oil, wheat germ, nuts and green leafy vegetables.
The Day Cream from The Skincare Collection by Sienna X is formulated with Vitamin E, designed to protect the skin throughout the day.
An antioxidant, Vitamin C is an essential skincare ingredient when trying to create healthier, brighter, smoother skin. Known for stimulating collagen production, as well as brightening the skin though lifting dark spots revealing healthy, glowing skin.
Vitamin C can be found in vegetables and fruits, especially oranges and other citrus fruits.
