VITAMINS AND NUTRIENTS FOR SKINCARE & HAIRCARE

VITAMIN A

ANTI AGING, HYPERPIGMENTATION, PH BALANCING, ADDS SHINE & MOISTURE TO HAIR AND SCALP

This vitamin is essential for skin health, and creams containing derivatives of vitamin A are efficient in treating wrinkles.  Vitamin A thickens and stimulates the dermis – where your collagen, elastin, and blood vessels are – so it reduces wrinkles and increases blood flow to the surface of the skin. 

 

1. ANTI AGING - Normalises blood flow – taking nutrients and oxygen to the cells

2. HYPERPIGMENTATION - Decreases clustering of melanin granules – so reducing brown spots or pigmentation. Exfoliates – making skin smooth and even-toned.

3. PH BALANCING - Decreases sebum production and thus treats acne brilliantly

4. SHINE & MOISTURE TO HAIR - It helps produce the natural oils, also known as sebum, on your scalp. This gives your hair a healthy gloss and shine. Contains antioxidants that moisturize the scalp and prevent the hair from drying out.

 

NATURAL INGREDIENTS HIGH IN VITAMIN A: 

apricots, basil, cabbage, cantaloupe, carrot, collard greens, grapefruit, mangoes, mint, peppermint, rosemary, sage, spinach, sweet potato, thyme, tomato and watermelon.

VITAMIN D

ANTI INFLAMMATORY, ANTI AGING, SKIN REPAIR, HAIR GROWTH

Vitamin D is sometimes called the "sunshine vitamin" because it's produced in your skin in response to sunlight. It's a fat-soluble vitamin in a family of compounds that includes vitamins D-1, D-2, and D-3. Your body produces vitamin D naturally when it's directly exposed to sunlight. You can also get it through certain foods and supplements to ensure adequate levels of the vitamin in your blood.

1. ANTI INFLAMMATORY -Vitamin D3 contains strong anti-inflammatory properties which make it effective for treating burns, skin injuries, skin damage and stretch marks.
2. ANTI AGING -The anti-oxidant present in Vitamin D prevents skin damage and premature aging of skin when taken via supplements or included in the diet. 
3. SKIN REPAIR -Vitamin D also repairs skin damage prevents infections that might be caused due to skin injuries and rejuvenate the skin.
4. HAIR GROWTH -Lack of Vitamin D can also cause hair loss. Vitamin D is found in healthy hair follicles and is generally lacking in unhealthy follicles. Vitamin D receptors in the hair follicle have to be fed in the growing phase. This is why Vitamin D and hair deficiency go together. Studies have also shown that inhibiting Vitamin D receptors can cause hair loss.

VITAMIN K

ANTI AGING, MINIMIZE AND HEAL BRUSIES, MINIMIZE DARK UNDER EYE CIRCLES, CALMS REDNESS AND INFLAMMATION, 

This little-known nutrient plays a huge role in keeping your skin healthy and beautiful, and as it turns out, it works much differently than traditional antioxidants. 

1.MINIMIZE AND HEAL BRUSIES -Most bruising is caused by weakened blood vessels (also known as capillaries) that break and allow blood to pool in your skin. Vitamin K works to strengthen these capillaries so your bruises heal faster and make your skin less prone to bruising in the first place.
2. MINIMIZE DARK UNDER EYE CIRCLES - Dark circles are often caused by the same weakened capillaries responsible for bruising, and vitamin K not only strengthens those capillaries but also increases circulation and reduces fluid retention in the under eye area for eyes that look rejuvenated, bright and youthful!
3. CALMS REDNESS AND INFLAMMATION -improves blood circulation, which in turn helps to reduce inflammation and calm redness. 
4. ANTI AGING - it also works to strengthen and increase skin's resiliency.
