Vitamin D

Vitamin D is made by the body when sunlight is absorbed by the skin and is then taken up by your liver and kidneys and transported throughout the body to help create healthy cells.

Vitamin D can help maintain a youthful and brighter complexion as it helps the skin to regenerate cells and give you a healthy glow.

Supplements are cheap and easy to find, or you can head outside and get some sun for at least ten minutes to get the amount needed for healthy functioning.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is found in high levels in the epidermis of the skin and is essential to maintaining bright, healthy-looking skin.

Vitamin C helps fend off the signs of ageing as it plays a vital role in collagen synthesis, meaning wrinkles appear reduced and damage to the outer layer of the skin heals quickly.

To boot, it also has cancer-fighting (antioxidant) properties, and taking it orally can help boost the effectiveness of sun creams.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is an antioxidant like Vitamin C, and one of its main functions in the body is to help repair and protect from sun damage.

Vitamin E absorbs harmful UV light from the sun when applied to the skin, which helps lower the chances of developing dark spots and wrinkles.

Vitamin E is normally produced through sebum, so if your skin is on the drier side, Vitamin E can help counteract a lack of sebum on the skin.

Vitamin K

Vitamin K is essential to the body’s processes when clotting blood, making it essential for those with certain skin conditions.

Vitamin K can help with scars, spider veins, dark spots, stretch marks and dark circles under your eyes.

While research into Vitamin K is limited, doctors frequently use creams containing Vitamin K to help with swelling and bruising after surgery.
