" Vitamin C promotes collagen synthesis and protects the skin from UV lights including the blue light emitted by electronic gadgets."
Many skincare products contain vitamins from vitamin A, D, F to vitamin K. Studies showed that some vitamins are highly effective at improving the appearance of the skin. Based on my experience as an anti-ageing scientist who has been formulating skincare products for over two decades, these are the 4 best anti-ageing vitamins for our skin:
1. Vitamin C
Vitamin C is arguably the most popular vitamin which has been used in skincare products for many decades. Studies showed that vitamin C promotes collagen synthesis and protects our skin from UV lights including the blue light emitted by electronic gadgets such as smartphones, laptops, TVs and tablets. For best results, always choose l-ascorbic acid, the most effective vitamin C. The efficacy of l-ascorbic acid is even higher when it is combined with ferulic acid and vitamin E. The multi-award-winning vitamin C serum, Antioxidant Youthful Essence, has been specially formulated with l-ascorbic acid, vitamin E, ferulic acid and pro-vitamin B5. This radiance boosting serum strengthens and protects the skin from free radicals, oxidative stress, pollutants and UV lights including the harmful blue light from digital gadgets.

2. Vitamin B3
Vitamin B3 is known to increase the production of collagen, elastin and other proteins in the skin by up to 100%. It also strengthens skin's barrier function, promotes a radiant complexion, prevents skin irritation and UV-induced photoageing. For best results, choose niacinamide over other forms of vitamin B3. Unlike the other forms, niacinamide is suitable for all skin types including hypersensitive skin. Niacinamide is the best vitamin B3. The efficacy of vitamin B3 is remarkably improved by mixing it together with n-acetyl glucosamine. Studies showed that niacinamide and n-acetyl glucosamine work collaboratively to reduce all signs of ageing including wrinkles, lines and pigmentation spots. Both ingredients stimulate cell renewal and firm up the appearance of the skin. To help restore the youthfulness of the skin, apply award-winning Bio-Collagen Ageless Cream every morning and evening. This ultra firming and lifting cream has been specially formulated with niacinamide, n-acetyl glucosamine, 24-karat gold, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin E.
" Argan oil plumps, Niacinamide tackles pigmentation and rosacea and 24 Carat Gold smooths wrinkles. An all-round winner."

3. Vitamin E
Vitamin E has long been regarded as one of the best antioxidants to protect our skin from free radicals and oxidative stress. Vitamin E is very versatile, it works well with other vitamins. Vitamin E improves the efficacy of many vitamins, particularly vitamin B3, B5 and C. When it is applied to the skin, vitamin E protects skin cells from environmental damage and dryness. Vitamin E is particularly good for dry skin as it restores the skin's moisture levels and prevents dehydration.
If your skin is prone to dryness and dehydration, gently massage 4 to 6 drops of Bio-Collagen Face Oil into freshly-cleansed skin on the face and neck, and then apply moisturiser to lock in the moisture. If you use a face serum, always apply the serum first then follow with the oil and moisturiser. Alternatively, you can mix a few drops of the oil with a small amount of moisturiser in your palm then gently massage into the face and neck. Bio-Collagen Face Oil contains 16 bioactives including vitamin E complex to instantly replenish the skin's moisture, energise and protect skin from dryness, harsh elements and all ageing factors.

4. Pro-Vitamin B5
Also known as panthenol, pro-vitamin B5 is one of the best skin hydrator. When it is applied to the skin, panthenol quickly hydrates and strengthens the skin's defence against dehydration and irritation. It is particularly good for sensitive skin. Just like vitamin E, pro-vitamin B5 works well with other vitamins to boost the efficacy of skincare products. If you are looking for a super hydrating moisturiser to protect the skin from dehydration, dryness and all other ageing factors, try the award-winning Bio-Collagen Serum. This ultra firming and lifting serum has been formulated with 24-karat gold, hyaluronic acid, vitamin B3, B5 and E to restore radiance, reduce signs of ageing and protect the skin from UV lights including blue light emitted by digital devices.
