What Are Vitamins And Why Are They Important?

Your skin is the largest organ of your body. In order to function at its absolute best, skin requires a multitude of nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fatty acids. The length of time that these nutrients actually stay in your body varies. Some substances remain for lengthy periods, whereas others are metabolised and excreted quickly.

If you lack sufficient quantities of any of these key nutrients, your skin will suffer, as it won't be fully nourished. Your rate of cell renewal may slow down, so dead skin will build up, leaving your complexion dull and rough.

Vitamins B and C are water-soluble vitamins and are the easiest and quickest to deplete in the skin, causing a deficiency. Several lifestyle choices can also deplete these vitamins quicker and increase your requirements for vitamins. These include:

  • High coffee intake

  • High alcohol intake

  • Smoking

  • High stress levels

  • Processed, nutrient-poor diet

If this is the case, then you need to make sure you restore your vitamin balance in order to keep your skin looking and feeling healthy.

What Are The Signs That I'm Lacking in Vitamins B and C?

Surprisingly, in the modern world, vitamin deficiencies are becoming increasingly common, particularly because of processed diets. There are many signs that your skin is craving vitamins B and C, including:

  • Redness

  • Sensitivity

  • Reactivity

  • Vascularity (fragile capillaries)

  • Hyperpigmentation

  • Premature ageing

  • Uneven, discoloured skin tone

  • Irritation and cracks around the nostrils and mouth

If you suffer from any of these, you may want to consider boosting your vitamin intake in order to achieve healthy skin once again. We always recommend consulting your doctor if you suspect a severe vitamin deficiency.

Which Skinstitut Products Can I Use For a Vitamin Boost?

Skinstitut Vitamin C 100% is a revolutionary product that can be added to any other product to give your skin an immediate boost of Vitamin C.

How Can I Take in More Vitamin B and C?

One way to get more vitamin B and vitamin C is, of course, by diet. If you're lacking in vitamin B, you want to consume more eggs, wholegrain breads, fresh and dried fruits, vegetables such as peas and spinach, rice, milk, and chickpeas. Vitamin C is mostly found in fruits and vegetables—specifically oranges, red and green peppers, strawberries, broccoli, and Brussel sprouts.

However, diet isn't the only way to give your skin a vitamin boost. Using skincare products with vitamins B and C can deliver quick and dramatic results.

What is the Difference Between the Skinstitut Rejuvinate 15 Serum and Skinstitut Retinol?

Skinstitut Rejuvenate 15 is a calming, hydrating serum, which assists in repairing the skin and accelerating skin renewal - it's a more gentle serum, and has a blend of active ingredients (including peptides, vitamins, aloe vera). Apply a pea-sized amount morning and night to face and neck. Use this product after cleansing and prior to moisturiser and sunscreen. May be used in the eye area.

Retinol is a more concentrated intense product, which helps to reduce the signs of ageing, and increase the strength of the skin - helping to battle fine lines, and increase the elasticity of the skin. Apply a pea-sized amount every other evening, building up to every evening on clean dry skin, gently stroke outwardly in a circular motion, gradually spreading onto entire face, neck and chest. Avoid the eye area.

We suggest trying the Skinstitut Rejuvenate 15 as a daily serum during the day and using the Skinstitut Retinol every second or third night. On nights off from Retinol, the Rejuvenate 15 can be used as a night serum.

However, if you have a sensitive skin type, the we recommend just using the Skinstitut Rejuvenate 15 as it is gentler on the skin than the high-intensity of Skinstitut Retinol which can irritate sensitive skin if used incorrectly.

When adding retinol to your skincare routine be sure to wear sunscreen during the day to protect your skin from any sensitivities.
