We all chase after a tanned, glowing complexion during summer, but what about making our skin glow from within?
While we take advantage of the summer days to top up on vitamin D and protect our skin on the outside, it is also important to consider the nutrients that work for our benefit from the inside.
That’s where vitamin A comes in.
WHAT IS VITAMIN A?
Vitamin A acts as an antioxidant, protecting our cells from free radical damage to collagen – our skin’s support structure.
It can be found in animal products such as cheese, eggs and oily fish, or absorbed by our bodies directly from plant-based foods. These include leafy, yellow, red and green vegetables such as spinach, carrots, sweet potatoes and red peppers.
However, an increasing number of people look to boost their skin’s health with vitamin A and turn to supplements or treatments to achieve their desired results.
WHAT BENEFITS CAN YOU EXPECT?
Whether it comes from the products you use or the food you eat, the wholesome properties of vitamin A will give you an upper hand in keeping your skin firm, radiant and youthful.
Its potent benefits can enhance your skin in many different ways:
We have a few products at Dermal Clinic that will inject a sufficient dose of vitamin A into your daily routine, keeping your skin glowing all year round.
Our own Bioceutrics range of skincare is packed with high-impact multiple active ingredients to charge your skin daily and help maintain its good health.
The products target each layer of your skin to hydrate, protect and repair while fighting the signs of ageing.
The carefully picked combination of clinically proven ingredients will deliver visible results and keep your skin smooth and radiant without a time-consuming skin care regime.
The range of moisturisers in Environ Essential Skin Care contain a series of products with increasing amounts of vitamin A, as well as other powerful vitamins and antioxidants.
Your skin will be replenished with an array of essential nutrients that daily life and stresses take away.
The C-Quence Ionzyme range enriched with peptides will deliver a highly effective combination of ingredients to help you achieve an even, glowing complexion, while the alternative AVST range can be used by patients who suffer from congestion and hormonal breakouts.
AVST is a step-up range which allows to ease your skin into the treatment. Optimal levels of vitamin A are delivered, restoring your skin’s natural levels and revealing its natural beauty.
Advanced Nutrition Programme
We offer a range of supplements for anyone looking to boost skin radiance and general health.
The Advanced Nutrition Programme is available to buy in the clinic at £80 and can help to meet daily intakes of vital nutrients and vitamins, such as vitamin A.
Creams and lotions can only reach so far, so give yourself a beauty boost that starts within.
For severe cases of acne and scarring, we’d recommend an appointment with our own Dr. Andrew MacKenzie, Consultant Dermatologist.
Andrew is proficient in General Dermatology and has specialist interest in Dermatological Surgery and Paediatric Dermatology – so he brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our team.
He can prescribe Roaccutane to patients, a powerful derivative of vitamin A which helps to treat scarring and severe acne. However, it is only prescribed in cases where first and second treatments (such as antibiotics) have been unsuccessful.
