While we all know that vitamins and nutrients are important for your overall health and wellbeing, what you might not know is that using vitamins on your skin can also have a massive impact on your appearance.

Yep, really!

The best part? There’s a vitamin cream out there for every type of skin concern.

Below, we take a look at what they are and why you should incorporate vitamin cream into your daily routine.

What are the benefits of vitamin cream?

Skincare products formulated with vitamins can offer many different benefits for the skin.

From protecting your skin against free radical damage to reducing the appearance of pigmentation and improving your skin’s overall tone and texture - the benefits of vitamin creams are far reaching.

Here, we’ve outlined a quick round-up of some of the most common vitamins you can find in skincare, and what each can do for your skin.

Vitamin A

Considered the ‘gold standard’ of anti-ageing skincare, vitamin A comes in many different forms. It primarily works to stimulate cell turnover and increase our skin’s natural collagen production. For the same reason, it’s also a great ingredient for tackling acne.

Vitamin A can sometimes be a tricky ingredient for people with sensitive skin concerns. That’s why Skin Virtue products use retinyl palmitate - a gentle form of vitamin A that converts to retinol and retinoic acid.

Vitamin B

Vitamin B refers to a group of vitamins. One of the most common? Niacinamide (vitamin B3). This ingredient is a serious multi-tasker, helping skin maintain its barrier function, as well as improving the appearance of your skin’s tone and texture. It also helps improve redness, fine lines and wrinkles, and offers a brightening effect.

Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) is another powerhouse B vitamin that’s often used in skincare to improve skin hydration and reduce moisture loss. It also has anti-inflammatory effects, making it perfect for those with irritated skin.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C works to brighten and firm the skin, boosting collagen and protecting the skin from free radical damage. It also helps decrease melatonin formation and fades dark spots.

If you have a dry and sensitive skin type, it’s important to find gentle antioxidants in the right concentration. Skin Virtue uses ingredients such as ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate and ascorbyl palmitate, as these are less irritating.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a moisturising antioxidant that works to protect the skin barrier and improve skin hydration. It also helps protect skin cells from free radical damage and softens skin.

What is the best vitamin cream?

If you’re deciding which vitamin cream to use, we suggest reaching for Skin Virtue’s Future Advanced Vitality Cream, $100.

This powerful anti-ageing cream uses multiple vitamins to help support skin regeneration, enhance cell communication and accelerate the natural metabolism of the skin.

Not only is it formulated with regenerating vitamin A, but it also contains vitamin C, vitamin B5 and vitamin E in liposomes to help with firming and plumping the skin and preventing cellular anti-ageing.

When should you use vitamin cream?

Suitable for all skin types, Skin Virtue’s Future Advanced Vitality Cream can be used after cleansing, toning and applying serums.

For best results, gently apply it across your face and neck, massaging until completely absorbed.
