Vitamin A is the gold standard in skincare as it addresses so many different skin concerns.
From Ageing to Acne, Vitamin A is your starting point if you want to improve your skin's complexion.
The benefits of Vitamin A:
- Resurfacing - Vitamin A returns the outermost layer of the epidermis to normal functioning by accelerating natural exfoliation, which then improves acne, pigmentation and dry/flaky skin.
- Regulates - Vitamin A regulates all the 5 epidermal layers (skin layers). Vitamin A penetrates deep through the Basal Layer to perform DNA correction, regulate sebum levels, regulate melanin production, and accelerate cell turnover. Vitamin A then works on a skin layer called Stratum Spinosum, found above the Basal Layer, and thickens it with new healthy cells. In other words, your skin will regain a balanced function.
Stimulates - Vitamin A can penetrate skin going through the epidermal layers (first five layers) to the dermal layers (last two layers - the Basal and Stratum Spinosum), until it reaches the Papillary Dermis (the deepest layer, where our blood vessels and hair follicles are) and stimulates collagen and elastin.
Moreover, it also stimulates the fibro-blast cells that are responsible for collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. This makes the skin firmer, stronger, smoother and denser.
