Seven Key Vitamins For Your Skin


We recently partnered with Graydon Skincare to gift our community a Moon Boost Serum, and we wanted to get the juicy details on what's inside! Here's what their team shared...for the sake of your SKIN!


Moon Boost Serum

Moon Boost Serum is like nothing you’ve ever used before. This velvety-smooth, multifunctional serum is made with non-comedogenic superfood oils and infused with seven vitamins. This complex formulation does the job of seven serums in one convenient bottle and is suitable for people of all genders, skin tones and skin types.

Let’s dive into how the vitamins in Moon Boost Serum work to support your skin!


Vitamin A

The skin benefits of Vitamin A (more commonly known as Retinol) are widely documented as it is often considered one of the most effective skincare ingredients for anti-aging, acne and hyperpigmentation.(1) Vitamin A plays a role in leaving your skin looking plump and supple while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Ummm, yes please to all of that!

Vitamin B

Vitamin B5 is a superstar ingredient that acts as an emollient and a humectant. This means it helps to soothe and soften the skin, while locking in hydration to help reduce Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL).(2)

Is there anyone out there who doesn’t want soft, hydrated skin? I doubt it!

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps neutralize free radicals to prevent skin damage from environmental stressors such as UV rays and pollution.(3) We love vitamin C for its ability to even the skin’s complexion by helping to fade hyperpigmentation,(3) while also providing anti-inflammatory properties to calm skin-redness.

Vitamin D

Our primary source of Vitamin D comes from the sun, hence the nickname “the sunshine vitamin.” Vitamin D has anti-inflammatory properties, helps maintain skin barrier function and provides some protection from damage caused by UVB rays.(4)

Less sun damage means more youthful looking skin—count me in!


Vitamin E


Vitamin E helps to reinforce the skin barrier, soothe the skin and it has powerful antioxidant properties that work to protect the skin from free-radical damage caused by environmental stressors.(5)

It's important to protect against free-radical damage at all costs as this leads to premature signs of aging, and nobody wants that!


Vitamin F


To be honest, vitamin F isn’t really a vitamin; however, it does do wonders for the skin! Vitamin F is the name given to two essential fatty acids: alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3) and linoleic acid (omega-6). These fatty acids work together to provide moisturizing benefits that improve the skin’s elasticity, firmness and texture.(6)


Vitamin K


While not as widely talked about as other skincare ingredients, vitamin K does have some amazing skin benefits to offer. This vitamin helps to speed wound healing,(7) and research suggests it helps reduce the appearance of bruising and dark circles.(8)


With benefits like these, I think vitamin K deserves a little more attention!


Final words...

Moon Boost was carefully formulated so that all the vitamins work synergistically to deeply nourish and support your skin. So don’t wait, order your bottle of Moon Boost now and start having good skin days, every day!
