Penetrate, protect and pamper with these magic vitamin beauties
Eat, sleep, sanitise, repeat – it should be ways things have always been, but if you’ve ramped up your hand washing lately, or the change in season is drying out your skin, then you’ll want to drop some goodness back in!
Keeping your hands and body free from icky germs is one thing (one very important thing!), but did you know that all that soap and sanitizer is stripping away all bad stuff as well as the good stuff?
The best thing for sensitive, ageing or dried out skin is revitalising vitamins, and you don’t have to eat your way to them either. Here’s a few of our faves….
Oranges and lemons might be great sources for getting your Vitamin C into your body, but your favourite skincare products should be getting on to your skin too! Considered one of the most powerful antioxidants, Vitamin C is a must-have in any beauty regime.
Here’s what we love the most:
Our award-winning Vitamin C Face Serum will make sure you continue to shine right through the season, even if the weather doesn’t!
Make a mad dash to the fresh produce aisle at your local supermarket or health food shop, because almonds, sunflower seeds and green leafy vegetables contain high doses of Vitamin E to help keep your immune system strong and fight free radicals that can harm skin.
Vitamin E has also been a staple in the skincare category for many decades. It’s the ultimate skincare booster and with these benefits, it’s not hard to see why!
Just be sure to look for Tocopherol on your skincare products, as this is often how it is listed in the ingredients. You’ll find Tocopherol in botanicES’ Eye Serum, along with caffeine and Kakadu Plum, to awaken your eyes and keep them hydrated from the time they wake up to the time they go to sleep.
When you’ve stretched the 80-20 rule a little too far (the one where you can be 80% good, 20% naughty), the good news is there’s always usually an antidote. In the world of skin and beauty, that magic lies in the vitamin that is B3.
This is THE life-saving vitamin for when you’ve abandoned your healthy eating regime for pizza and pies, you’ve been travelling with the cabin pressure of planes and spent a bit too much time in the sun, or you’re having a morning-after-the-night-before day (helllloooo 20% rule!) – basically, anytime your skin just isn’t showing up for you. If it’s dull, lifeless and breaking out, vitamin B3 will resuscitate it back to good health!
Niacinamide, as it reads on most labels, helps to improve your skin at a cellular level. When it’s feeling a little neglected, B3 can be there to combat damage of UV and other impurities, smooth inflammation, and reduce the effects of darkening or discolouring of the skin.
As an acclaimed brightener, it will help you shine and bring new life to your skin!
Double down for a dynamic duo!
On their own, Vitamins C, E and B3 are essential skincare saviours. But in the same way you light up around your best gal pal, getting them together makes them UNSTOPPABLE! Each lifts the other up to give you skin that boasts shimmer and shine, even at times that would normally start to dry and dull your complexion.
Help your skin help you by feeding it the best vitamins you can. Just think of it like a whole foods diet, for your skin.
