The Importance of Vitamins for Skin

Vitamins are very important biological substances that play a role in the realization of many metabolic events in our body. Our body cannot make vitamins, so we have to take them from outside. In addition to taking vitamins to our body through food, when we take them through the products we apply to our skin, we ensure the continuation of skin functions.

Vitamins enter into the structure of the enzymes working in our body and ensure the regulation of biological events. Without vitamins, many activities in our body cannot be started or continued.
