Learning your vitamins – Easy as A, B C! Dermatologist Melbourne

Vitamin infused skincare is your first line of defence in the fight against sun-damage and premature ageing. It pays to learn your ABCs! Read on to see why you should be incorporating these skin saving heroes into your everyday routine.

Vitamin A 

The use of topical Vitamin A in your skin care regime, in the form of either retinol or the more potent retinoic acid is a proven wrinkle fighter and skin saviour. It’s the go-to for many dermatologists in the fight against age-spots, dark-spots and wrinkles. The reason it is so effective is that attaches itself to skin cells, creating younger, healthier looking cells. Vitamin A products encourage and quicken cell turnover, thickening the skin for a plump and bright look and more glowing complexion. It can be used to treat hyper-pigmentation, acne, enlarged pores, lines and wrinkles.

Vitamin B

Gentler than it’s Vitamin A cousin, Vitamin B3 products refine and hydrate the face, giving you a flawless and bright look. Also known as niacinamide, Vitamin B can help to improve the condition of the skin, working to treat rosacea, eczema, dermatitis, hyper-pigmentation, sun damage and ageing and dry skin. This popular vitamin also has an anti-biotic effect on the skin, helping to treat skin congestion and acne breakouts by regulating sebum production in the skin. 

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is one of the most effective and important topical vitamins you can add to your skin routine. A potent anti-oxidant, Vitamin C is unmatched in its ability to protect and strengthen the skin. It protects the skin from harmful free radicals in the environment, and also increases sun protection.  Used topically, Vitamin C can also boost collagen production and treat sun damage.

Don’t forget to slip, slop slap – Dermatologist Melbourne

Topical vitamin treatments contain active ingredients that can make your skin more sensitive and susceptible to sun burn and damage. A good quality sunscreen should be part of your skin care regime all year round. Use of sunscreen aids not only in the prevention of skin cancer, but also signs of premature ageing such as wrinkles and sun damage.
