Does Vitamin B5 Help With Sunburn?

October 03, 2017


You've repeatedly heard about the benefits of wearing sunscreen to block out the sun's harmful ultraviolet emissions. Yet…you've now got a nasty sun burn. Okay, so you forgot to slather the stuff on before you ventured outside. On the other hand, perhaps you’re a former sun worshipper who used to chase the rays and now you’re committed to changing your ways. Want to heal your skin and get the advantage of sun burn relief? Maybe it’s time to introduce vitamin B5 into your regimen.

The Basics About Vitamin B5

Also called pantothenic acid by scientists and nutritionists, vitamin B5 is found in both plant and animal sources. You might find it as part of a B complex supplement that imparts benefits such as the metabolic processing of food into glucose, immune system enhancement and hormone production. On its own, B5 helps your body process carbohydrates, proteins and fats for use in building healthy skin.

Vitamin B5 Benefits Your Skin

Vitamin B5 isn’t only a veritable powerhouse when ingested in food or supplements. Experts have also harnessed the power vitamin B5 for skin care. It's no wonder because pantothenic acid boasts a wide number of assets when externally applied:

  • Moisturizing
  • Anti-inflammation
  • Skin regeneration
  • Wound healing

Vitamin B5’s Uses in Beauty Products

Although this vitamin promises such marked benefits for your skin, it's vital to find the right product to help your skin and promote healing of your sunburns. Trying a vitamin b5 serum is a smart move, as it directly treats damaged outer epidermal layers while promoting rejuvenation and reducing the instance of scarring. Alongside this serum, you can boost the healing by working more natural skincare products such as hyaluronic acid and argan oil into your daily care routine.
