Vitamin A

Vitamin A acts as a powerful skincare supplement which can help tackle a whole range of skincare woes.

Abnormal skin pigmentation, also known as hyperpigmentation, occurs when there is an excess production of melanin, the pigment that gives our skin, hair and eyes their colour. Vitamin A can help to normalise melanin production, preventing new patches from appearing and can also generate cell health, slowing down the production of the protective pigment which leads to hyper pigmentation.
