Why A, B and C are must-have vitamins for your skin.

Mukti, the founder of Mukti Organics shares why, if you really want to amp up your skincare regime and take your results to the next level, it’s as simple as A – B – C.

Vitamins are the best multitasking must-haves for all skin types. For a powerful hit of age-defying antioxidants that have the capacity to nurture and correct your skin, a daily serving of potent and stable vitamins can deliver your healthiest skin yet.

Your skin requires a combination of vitamins to strengthen and provide antioxidant protection, boost collagen and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Plenty of research has proven the effectiveness of topically applied vitamins and antioxidants in combating a plethora of skin conditions. These range from aged and sun-damaged skin to oily and blemish-prone skin.

If you’re looking to restore luminosity, brightness and even out your skin tone, Mukti Organics Vital Elixirs are the perfect addition to promoting a firmer, plumper appearance and restore calmness and clarity.

Vitamin A

What It Does

Vitamin A is favoured by skincare specialists across the globe. It’s considered the gold standard in skincare ingredients. If you’re big on age-defying ingredients and suffer from mottled spots and sun damage, you can make your beauty sleep count while Vitamin A works its magic.

The reason behind the effectiveness of Vitamin A is that it works as a cell-communicator affecting change at a cellular level. It increases cellular turnover and restores luminosity and brightness by inhibiting the enzymes that break down collagen. The result – a softening of fine lines and wrinkles, an even skin tone, fading of dark spots and hyperpigmentation.

It’s also a brilliant treatment if you have acne and scarring and works to fight acne by dissolving surface oil and refining pores. Dryness can occur with the use of traditional Retinoids as the old cells die and redness can be the result due to increased sensitivity of the new skin cells. Older skin cells that sit on the surface of our skin act as a protective barrier. As cell turnover is stimulated and increased, our skin becomes more radiant.

When To Use
Vitamin A is best used at night after cleansing. If minor irritation occurs, stop using the product for 1-2 days then continue to use every other day.

Take Outs 
Although there is conflicting information and not a great deal of clinical tests, some studies have indicated that high concentrations of Vitamin A especially when taken orally, are best avoided when pregnant. Use with personal discretion and to consult your obstetrician. Avoid using in the presence of sunlight and always use sun protection.

Vitamin B

What It Does 

Ageing skin is more likely to be dry and dehydrated so Vitamin B enhances the skin’s barrier, restores balance and aids in overall hydration.

Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) is the active ingredient that plays a key role in over 200 cellular reactions, including cellular energy production. No other ingredient behaves in this way, making it such a versatile active in skincare. It addresses a wide range of skincare issues such as pigmentation and uneven skin tone by inhibiting the melanin transfer.

Alongside Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Niacinamide protects the skin from environmental irritants like pollutants and bacteria as it forms a protective layer improving the skin’s barrier function and assisting with hydration.

If you have oily skin, it can have an ‘antibiotic’ effect by balancing sebum (oil) production, improving skin congestion and acne breakouts while minimising enlarged pores. Vitamin B3 can also reduce inflammatory conditions like flushing and rosacea.

Your skin will benefit from this vitamin if it’s dehydrated, feels tight and sensitive and lacks radiance. The overall combination of key ingredients contributes to enhancing and maintaining the skin’s overall appearance.

When To Use

Use in the morning and evening after cleansing.

Take Outs

Generally speaking, Niacinamide is fairly inert and well-tolerated, so most people shouldn’t be concerned about any type of side effects. On rare occasions, some people may react to nicotinic acid found in Niacinamide. With that being said, it’s always better to err on the side of caution and patch test on a small area of skin if you are prone to any sensitivities. This can rule out fear of allergy. If your skin is sensitised, it is best to introduce gradually.

Vitamin C

What It Does
According to almost all skin experts, Vitamin C is one of the most important vitamins you can incorporate into your routine due to its potent antioxidant content and its ability to protect and strengthen the skin. It’s one of mother nature’s most effective skin lightening agents. It can significantly reduce the appearance of aged skin and wrinkles and increase firmness to prevent premature skin ageing.

Using Vitamin C topically is essential as it boosts collagen and elastin production at a cellular level working to reduce and stave off wrinkle formation.

Vitamin C will benefit every skin type and is your go to if you suffer from hyperpigmentation. A specific extract, Knotgrass has been added into our Vital C Elixir that works specifically on counteracting the effect of infrared radiation. It has a profound effect on melanin-producing cells helping to return your skin’s radiance, tone and luminosity.

When To Use
Use in the morning and evening after cleansing.

Take Outs
In the skin, Vitamin C is the predominant antioxidant, where the majority of Vitamin C is concentrated in the epidermis rather than in the dermis. Since the epidermis composes the outermost 10% of the skin and acts as the initial barrier to oxidant assault, it contains the highest levels of antioxidants of the skin such as Vitamin C and E. It, therefore, makes sense that vitamins should be on everyone’s skincare radar and used daily from teenagers starting out on their skin journey to those seeking potent anti-ageing benefits.
