    Your body gets the vitamins it needs from the foods you eat. Some vitamins may have other good reasons for being in a skin care product, such as vitamin E, which is an emollient that helps to smooth the skin's surface.

  • Moisturizers and serums can help deliver vitamins to the skin. Common vitamins included in topical anti-aging creams include Vitamins A, C, and E. These vitamins are antioxidants and can help undo the damage caused to skin cells and collage from ultraviolet light exposure. Topical Vitamin A derivatives also can help skin cells mature properly and stimulate collagen growth. Check the ingredients to see what is contained in your cream!
