There are plenty of vitamins that play a role in skincare, but did you know that vitamin F was on the list? Vitamin F is, in essence, fat, or fatty acid. The importance of vitamin F for skin comes down to linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid rich in omega-6, vital for maintaining a strong, healthy skin barrier. This is key for healthy, hydrated skin as well as other functions within the body.
When it comes to the uses of vitamin F for skin, aside from hydration, it is also high in antioxidants and is an anti-inflammatory, so it’s good at preventing damage by free radicals. It is super-safe for pretty much all skin types and can be used morning and night. Vitamin F can be found in foods including chia seeds, almonds, hemp seeds and eggs, but when it comes to maximising the benefits for your complexion, you should also consider topical use.
