Skin care has come a long way. Gone are the days of the simple bog-standard moisturiser, and in its place is skin care that feeds your skin a complex range of vitamins and antioxidants instead.
Skin needs nourishing. We need to feed it in the same way we feed our body. Vitamins, such as vitamins A and C, are incredibly helpful in preventing ageing, reversing any pigmentation, and keeping free radicals at bay.
Vitamin C is a vitamin found mostly in fruit. When we think of vitamin C, we think of oranges, and we think of its ability to prevent illness. Vitamin C in skin care is especially useful in helping prevent sun damage. It is also useful for evening out your complexion, with many people seeing an improvement in skin tone. What is more, it also can help you produce more collagen.
Vitamin A, on the other hand, is a potent anti-ager, known especially for its skin regenerating properties; it helps exfoliate dead skin cells, thus leaving baby soft skin underneath. Studies have found that vitamin A can help with pigmentation, reducing fine lines, and reversing any photoaging. If you have a problem with acne, vitamin A can help clear your skin.
Why Beauty Bod’s Vitamin C Serum Will Help Your Skin
With 20% ascorbic acid, Beauty Bod’s Vitamin C serum is perfect for preventing free radical damage and scientifically proven to help the skin against environmental stress. Over time, regular use of vitamin C will help reduce pigmentation and even out skin tone, so that your complexion is clearer and brighter. The serum also includes vitamin E from macadamia and grapeseed oil, which is useful for hydrating and plumping out the skin.
A combination of vitamin C and E in the serum is the perfect blend for under your SPF. Put it on after washing your face each morning. Tingling may happen, but this is the serum working, and your skin will adapt. The serum adds to the benefits of your daily sun protection lotion.
The Perfect Retinol Serum
If you have wondered what retinol is, then it is a wonder ingredient derived from vitamin A. Retinol has been scientifically proven to help reverse and prevent fine lines. It can make a marked improvement to the appearance of wrinkles and uneven skin tone too. The FDA has stated that it is scientifically proven to be an effective anti-ager, with dermatologists often prescribing the serum as a topical medicine for acne or pigmentation issues.
Beauty Bod's Vitamin A hydrating cream is great for everyday use. Simply add a small amount each evening before bed. Those pregnant or breast-feeding should consult their GPs first. As vitamin A increases cell turnover, removing dead skin cells, it is important that you always wear a high factor sunscreen, as retinol can increase photosensitivity.
At Beauty Bod, we are proud of our skincare range. It is vegan, Australian-made, and cruelty-free. We produce our skin range with the best ingredients, scientifically proven to help support the skin. What is more, the skin range is suitable for any skin type.
