Vitamin A, the miracle of glowing, younger and plumper skin! Vitamin A has many various functions - ensuring healthy vision, skin and bones - but today, let's focus on the benefits it has on skin!
If you're concerned about wrinkles or suffer from pigmentation and spots, this is the "V" that you'd be interested in. Vitamin A in its purest form is known as the star skincare ingredient.
There are two types of vitamin A- carotenoids and retinoids, both of which are converted to retinol by the liver.
Retinol is the gold standard that stimulates the production of new skin cells. It helps speed up cell regeneration, improve hyper-pigmentation, acne, lines and wrinkles.
So, what does Vitamin A really do?
- It helps improve problematic skin conditions such as acne by normalising oil production
- It helps normalise the production of melanin, which lessens the appearance of pigmentation/spots
- It promotes cell reproduction such as collagen and elastin, making skin firmer and more radiant
- Vitamin A supports the skin's immune system, which prevents breakouts
- It also assists in hydrating the skin naturally, giving it a radiant glow

Serums & Creams
As an alternative, choose skincare products such as serums or creams with retinol/vitamin A to use in your skincare routine. Always remember that every product has different percentages of retinol. The higher the percentage doesn't always mean its better, instead it could have the opposite effect and harm your skin.
