How Much Do You Need Vitamins, Really?

What are these magical substances and what do they do for your skin exactly?

If you’ve shopped the skincare aisle lately (or for the past decade), you would have noticed an abundance of skincare care products that are packed with Vitamins in their list of ingredients.

You know that vitamins are beneficial for you in terms of health and aesthetics reasons. But what are vitamins exactly – and do you know exactly the amount you need and what kind is best suited for your skin?

I’ve went for many different kind of facials, but this was the first time I tried Vitamin Therapy.

It started with a careful cleansing and exfoliation of the skin, followed by the application of vitamins onto prepped skin. This is finished with deep infusion and a skin enhancing mask to allow maximum penetration of the vitamins into skin. I was recommended Vitamin C to restore my dull skin and Hyaluronic Acid for collagen boosting as well as to increase the amount of moisture in my skin.

After the treatment, my skin immediately felt brighter and had a smoother skin texture.

How much do you actually need for your skin?

In order to maintain this result, I was told that 1 to 2 sessions would be sufficient. However, for a more dramatic effect such as significant skin lightening, a series of 6 Vitamin Therapy, done every 2 to 3 weeks is ideal.
