Many skincare products now contain vitamins, but some people wonder how effective applying vitamins to the skin actually is.
Which vitamins work on the skin? Is it better to have vitamins taken in food as part of a healthy diet?
We asked Dr Ross Perry – Cosmedics Skin Clinics’ founder, Aesthetic Doctor and GP – for his expert opinion on how useful vitamin skin creams and products are in improving the condition of the skin.
There are 3 vitamins which are most commonly associated with the skin.
Applying vitamins topically to the skin is very different from ingesting them. Dr Ross Perry explains:
“Ingesting has little effects for people with balanced diets and are not deficient
“Topically application helps reduce sun damage by its antioxidant properties in reducing free radicals that damage and weaken our collagen.
“It’s another tool in the armoury and best cream products will contain vitamins as well as a good SPF”
