Despite eating our fruits and veggies, most of us understand the importance of hedging our nutritional bets – more than 71% of the US population consume oral vitamin supplements daily. Many of us take a similar approach in our beauty routine with vitamin-enriched skincare. Some vitamins actually work better when applied topically in well-formulated skincare while others deliver few benefits. When shopping for skincare, forget your ABC’s and target the vitamin derivative by name which is most capable of delivering the desired improvement to your skin.
Information regarding clinical research and efficacy studies for the use of topical vitamins in skincare are available on Pinterest, or at the links below:
- Retinol – Vitamin A
- Niacinamide – Vitamin B3
- Panthenol – Vitamin B5
- Ascorbic Acid – Vitamin C
