Studies showed that some vitamins are very effective at improving skin conditions. Based on my 25 years experience in skincare research and product development, these are the 4 best anti-ageing vitamins:
1. Vitamin B3
Vitamin B3 is without a doubt the best overall anti-ageing vitamin. It remarkably increases the production of collagen, elastin and other proteins in the skin. It also strengthens the skin's barrier function, promotes a radiant complexion, prevents irritation and protects skin cell from UV-induced photoageing and environmental damage. For best results, niacinamide is better than the two other forms of vitamin B3, niacin and inositol hexanicotinate. Niacinamide delivers all the vitamin B3 skin benefits without causing irritation.
2. Vitamin E
Vitamin E has long been regarded as one of the most reliable antioxidants. It protects skin cells from free radical and environmental damage. Vitamin E also enhances skin's ability to retain moisture and renew itself. It is very versatile and works well with other vitamins, in fact vitamin E often improves the efficacy of other vitamins.
3. Pro-Vitamin B5
Also known as panthenol, pro-vitamin B5 is the best moisture-boosting vitamin. It provides soothing hydration and strengthens the skin's defence against environmental ageing. It is particularly good for sensitive skin.
4. Vitamin C
Vitamin C is one of the most popular vitamins which has been used in skincare products for many decades. Vitamin C is the best radiant-boosting vitamin. It also boosts skin's collagen synthesis. Ascorbic acid (the natural form of vitamin C found in fruits and vegetables) is known as the most potent vitamin C.
