But What Does That Mean? An ABC Guide To Understanding Skincare Ingredients

Understanding what's in skincare can be confusing. Just reading a description like, "the potent Alpha Lipoic Acid in our Skin Perfecting Creme, a clinical treatment moisturizer, helps Vitamin E self regenerate within your own skin cells" doesn't fully express the depth of significance and benefit to skin. Here is an abridged "ABC" guide to how key vitamins and nutrients impact skin, so that you can feel extra excited about your skincare regime as you wake this morning!

Vitamin A:

Repairs damaged connective skin tissue which helps the appearance and formation of wrinkles and fine lines 
Treats acne
Treats blotchiness and hyperpigmentation (brown and red spots caused by either inflammation or sun damage)
Neutralizes free radical damage (caused by pollution and environmental stresses)
Natural sources: carrots, sweet potatoes, kale

Vitamin B Complex:

Treats dry skin
Treats acne
Strengthens nails and helps reduce hair loss
Neutralizes free radicals
Sources: supplements like Vitamedica's Energy Supplements

Vitamin C:

Powerful anti-inflammatory
Skin brightener
Prevents hyperpigmentation (brown and red spots) by preventing enzymes from creating excess melanin
Treats acne
Treats psoriasis (a skin condition caused by rapid buildup of skin cells to form dry, scaly patches of skin)
Treats rosacea (a skin that causes redness and often small, red, pus-filled bumps on the face)
Treats asphyxiated skin (a lack of circulation within skin, most prevalent in mature and sun damaged skin or caused by illness, smoking and pollution in city environments)
Natural sources: tomatoes, citris fruits, densely colored vegetables like red peppers and broccoli

What do you think? For us, this only scratches the surface...
