Why I added Vitamin A to my skincare routine

Vitamins have become apart of the modern women's daily skincare routine, but why? Why do we need to use vitamins on the surface of our skin?

I recently added Vitamin A to my skincare routine and wow, what a difference it's made. My skin looks a lot more youthful especially after I've left it overnight. I use a basic cleanser, sometimes I exfoliate once or twice a week and use a variety of vitamin serums on skin overnight which help me achieve a more youthful glow.

The main difference I noticed is when I added vitamin A into my nighttime routine.  I used the Alpha-H vitamin A & E every night for a week and the glowing results were definitely noticeable. Vitamin A not only helps for a more youthful glow but it also contributes to slowing the ageing process down (if consumed), help with wound healing, reduce wrinkles and protect the skin against UV radiation.
