The skin protects us from various diseases and helps regulate our body temperature – so keeping it in great shape is vital to maintaining our overall health. Vitamins play a key role in skin health and are most effective when directly applied to the skin. Vitamins can help fight ageing and prevent conditions like acne. The good news is that there are plenty of skincare products available that are packed with healthy vitamins.
Here are five skincare products that not only clean the skin but contain extra vitamins to add a layer of protection.
HydroPeptide Anti-Wrinkle Polish & Plump Peel

The HydroPeptide Anti-Wrinkle Polish & Plump Peel contains a safer alternative for retinol called “Retinyl Palmitate” – a variant of vitamin A – that’s converted to retinoic acid once absorbed by the skin. Healthline notes how vitamin A is a powerful antioxidant that can encourage healthy skin cell production. It is also known to stimulate collagen production which reduces the appearance of fine lines, evens out complexion, and unclogs pores. It’s a little pricey at £57.00, but the results are worth it.

This fragrance-free cream helps regenerate, nourish, and moisturise skin while aiding in skin renewal. It combines vitamin B-12 which helps regulate the production of pigment. It also has other ingredients like Aloe Vera and Avocado Oil, helping it soothe irritated skin as well as prevent dark spots from occurring. It’s delicate enough for sensitive skin, and is available for as low as £15.99.
Janjira Bubble Mask
The Janjira bubble mask has a unique dual action formula that oxygenates and brightens your skin for £24. Its “bubbling effect” stems from a cocktail of ingredients such vitamin C and vitamin B3 that absorbs into your skin – boosting your collagen production to smooth out those wrinkles, creating a gorgeous and illuminating finish.

When compared with other anti-ageing ingredients like retinol and caffeine, vitamin K is the best choice to help fade dark circles. Dark circles are often caused by weakened capillaries, and vitamin K not only strengthens those capillaries, but also increases circulation and reduces fluid retention in the under-eye area. For £33, Bobbi Brown’s eye absorbs quickly, and leaves your eyes well-moisture and line-free, even after a day of wearing concealer.
