Vitamin A

What is it?

Vitamin A refers to retinoids and the various molecules derived from Vitamin A, which itself is also known as retinol. In the skin, Vitamin A is converted to retinaldehyde and then to retinoic acid, which influences a number of processes in the skin surface.

How does it help skin?

Some of these signs of photoaging include visible improvement in fine lines and wrinkles, smoothness, and hyperpigmentation. Vitamin A can also be used to help acne-prone skin.
