Vitamin B has recently received attention within the world of beauty, with the release of a number of studies focusing on the benefits and efficacy of Vitamin B in skincare products.
The B Vitamins, known collectively as B-complex, have a number of functions within the body…..
These are functions of the immune system and nervous system, along with energy production. Each B Vitamin has a distinct function and collectively they work together to maintain good health and vitality. B Vitamins are water soluble and as such are not retained by the body, requiring regular intake through diet or supplementation to maintain health levels. These nutrients are found in a variety of foods, drinks and topical treatments such as the WILDHEART [wellbeing] SUPER BOOST SERUM and the EYES HAVE IT Eye Cream.
The benefits of topically applied Vitamin B in skincare
The numerous benefits of Vitamin B in skincare products has received worldwide attention due to studies demonstrating that this particular vitamin can help prevent ageing. Nicotinamide, a derivative of Vitamin B3 (Niacin) is particularly interesting with studies proving that it improves the ability of the epidermis to retain moisture resulting in smoother, softer skin with a reduction of fine lines, less dehydration (ie dryness and flakiness).
B-complex Vitamins have been found to promote healthy skin, hair and nails by counteracting damage caused by free-radicals
According to studies, deficiencies in any of the B Vitamins can lead to skin conditions such as dermatitis, rashes, acne, wrinkles, dry dehydrated skin, hair loss and splitting nails.
Specifically, deficiencies in Vitamins B1, B2, B3 and B5 can result in poorly nourished hair and hair follicles. Vitamin B2 helps the body to absorb the essential mineral, iron, which is necessary for healthy skin and nails. Vitamin B3 is used to improve the appearance or severity of skin conditions such as dull, sallow, grey and generally unhealthy complexions. Vitamin B5 can help to minimise acne due to its ability to help the body to breakdown oils in the form of triglycerides and cholesterol which will promote healthy skin. It also helps to promote faster healing of skin wounds and is especially effective when combined in skincare products containing Vitamin C. Vitamin B9 is important for the health of nails. Vitamin B12 helps to regulate your skin’s melanin production and location, thus preventing hyperpigmentation. It also assists in red blood cell formation, important for general health and wellbeing.
