What Type of Vitamins Are Best for Wrinkled Skin?

November 16, 2017


In the fight against the symptoms of aging, vitamins play an invaluable role. From UV protection to revitalization, vitamins offer a variety of anti-aging dermatological benefits. Nearly every anti wrinkle cream or serum uses a vitamin blend, so let’s take a closer look at the ones which offer the most anti-aging benefits.

Vitamin A

Vitamin A is a potent antioxidant that reduces the effect of free radicals. In limiting the oxidation process, it fights against sun damage and discoloration. Additionally, vitamin A can help brighten dark circles under the eyes. It is also a natural exfoliator, helping smooth out wrinkles and lines.

Vitamin B3 (Niacin)

Vitamin B3, or niacin, helps your skin retain moisture. In anti aging skin care, it’s used to treat dry or cracked skin, exfoliating dead cells, exposing healthy ones. The new cells are then able to absorb and hold more moisture, leaving you with smoother, softer skin.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is one of the most beneficial vitamins you can take. It boosts the immune system and is an extremely effective antioxidant. Furthermore, it encourages the body to create more antioxidants, such as vitamin E. In anti aging serums, vitamin C protects the skin from UV damage by dampening the effects of free radicals. It also stimulates collagen, making your skin firmer and less prone to sagging.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E helps treat dry skin and is a powerful antioxidant. It is found in a variety of anti wrinkle serums because of its proven moisturizing capabilities. Often found in leafy greens and nuts, vitamin E is generally more oily when applied than other treatments.

Vitamin K

Finally, vitamin K helps eases constriction of your capillaries, reducing the effect of dark circles under your eyes. These leaves your skin looking brighter and smoother.
