When it comes to serious skincare, vitamin serums are a non-negotiable. With their potent antioxidant properties vitamins, A, B, C and E are essential for protecting against free radicals, fortifying the skins barrier protection, helping to clear dark spots, minimising fine lines, soothing irritation, increasing luminosity, and increasing our defence against UV light. Each with their own unique library of benefits. While eating a nutrient dense diet will help, only a very small amount of orally ingested vitamins reach the skin so it’s critical to introduce a daily dose of topical vitamins into your routine. Think of our Vitamin Kit as your one-stop-shop to a customised vitamin routine – offering a bespoke approach that enables you to reach for whatever your skin needs on any given day.
Each Vitamin has a lightweight texture and absorbs quickly making application easy and they will layer beautifully under any other skincare or makeup. Just remember if you are applying in the morning to always follow with your preferred SPF.
Topically applied vitamins also increase the skins’ natural ability to defend itself against premature extrinsic ageing. We advise using Vitamin C daily in the morning to help prevent UV and environmental damage, then alternating between Vitamin B morning and/or evening and, E and A at night – depending on what your skin needs most that day.
Below we breakdown how you can benefits from vitamins in your diet and in your skincare.
A is for 'Age Defying'
To keep skin looking radiant and youthful, boost your diet with plenty of omega 3 – rich fish and foods high in Vitamin A such as sweet potatoes, carrots, dark leafy greens, capsicum and tropical fruits. When it comes to skincare, always apply your Vitamin A at night to utilise its full potential and avoid it being broken down by exposure to the sun. Vitamin A serum contains 0.5% Retinol and this creamy antioxidant-rich formula exfoliates, hydrates and accelerates skin renewal for truly luminous skin. Gently press Vitamin A serum into dry skin after cleansing with gentle patting motions, then let it absorb before applying your preferred moisturiser. Avoid this one if you are pregnant or breastfeeding as it is not recommended during this time.
B is for 'Building Moisture'
Dry or dehydrated skin can look dull and devitalised. Obviously drinking water is the first piece of the puzzle however dehydrated skins need topical application hydrators to change the game. Vitamin B serum is loaded with barrier fortifying hydrating superstar Niacinamide, soothing Panthenol and complementary actives such as Copper Tripeptides and Hyaluronic Acid. This nutritional powerhouse replenishes moisture levels, helps balance excess sebum, reduces the appearance of redness and encourages a healthy skin barrier for resilient, luminous skin. Apply Vitamin B serum morning or evening whenever your skin needs a moisture boost.
