We're sure you know the drill when it comes to caring for you skin: cleanse, tone, moisturise, apply sunscreen and maybe try a few other treatments like masks or anti-agers. Although there are so many different things out there, there are a few nutrients that your skin really needs - vitamin A is one of them. We believe in vitamin A, restoring the skin naturally relying on our skin's defence system to build new collagen and elastin.
Protected against UV damage and slows signs of ageing.
It contains potent antioxidants. Not only do these squelch free radicals that break down collagen and contribute to fine lines and saggy skin, they also lessen skin's sensitivity to the sun, providing some natural protection against sun-induced redness and pigmentation.
Encourages healthy skin cell production.
Retinal, and retinol are important to cell production and growth. Vitamin A also stimulates fibroblasts—the cells responsible for developing tissue that keeps skin firm and healthy—in the deep layers of your skin.
Topical vitamin A in the form of retinol, are proven wrinkle-fighters. When collagen becomes damaged due to UV exposure and other aggressors, wrinkles begin to develop, much like cracks in a weak foundation. Retinoids “turn on” cells responsible for making new collagen, strengthening your skin and filling in fine lines below the surface so skin looks smoother.
Clears up acne
When vitamin A creams stimulate cell turnover the same process happens within the pores themselves, helping to slow oil production and keep pores clear.
Evens skin tone
Vitamin A helps by increasing and normalising skin cell turnover, which helps you shed pigmented, damaged and rough surface cells, making room for healthier cells and allowing light to bounce off more evenly.

We all know, how change can be difficult and letting go of old limiting beliefs is not easy, some of these beliefs are linked to our core values and still provide our identity, it’s working out which ones serve us, and which don’t .
