We all know how important it is to get our vitamins in order to lead a healthy lifestyle. Most of us get a good amount of vitamins through our diets and supplementation, but they are also contained within much skincare to provide direct benefits to the complexion. Vitamin E is well known for being a hydrating vitamin, while vitamin C is known for it's anti-ageing and brightening properties. However, vitamin B is less known for it's skincare benefits, which is a shame as it has many.
B vitamins help the upper layer of skin retain moisture so that they stay hydrated and the skin looks plumped up, bouncy and youthful. They are often used in serums and masks to create hydrating skincare, to good effect. A lack of vitamin B can lead to dry, flaky skin and even eczema, so if you feel as though your skin is dehydrated and dull, you may be lacking in this vital vitamin.
To give your complexion a boost of Vitamin B, make sure that you firstly get enough from your diet, and supplement if you need to. On top of that, add skincare containing B vitamins into your beauty routine. The result will be gorgeously hydrated skin which glows from within.
