Vitamin A & Ageing Skin
Posted on March 17 2017
As we age, our skin produces less collagen and elastin, which means those 'high traffic' areas of the face (like the eyes and mouth) are especially prone to lines and wrinkles. Vitamin A thickens and stimulates the dermis - where your collagen, elastin and blood vessels are - reducing wrinkles and increases blood flow to the surface of the skin. Vitamin A breaks down the intra-cellular glue that holds the skin cells together, resulting in cell renewal and a quicker cell turnover. It is one of our gold standard serums for ageing skin.
-Exfoliates the skin giving it a more even and toned appearance
-Decreases sebum production, meaning it is excellent for oily and blemish prone skin. It also reduces enlarged pores
-Helps to reduce the symptoms of rosacea by normalising blood flow
-Reduces brown spots and pigmentation
-Encourages skin renewal to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
-Promotes a healthy cellular membrane
