Which vitamins are important for a healthy skin and how these can help you to a radiant complexion, you can read in our vitamin ABC for the skin:


Vitamin A


In the beauty cosmos, vitamin A is better known as Retinol. The active ingredient smoothes wrinkles, stimulates collagen formation and provides a refined skin appearance due to its peeling effect on the skin surface. Due to its high effectiveness, vitamin A is an absolute game changer in terms of anti-aging. In all of our care products you will find vitamin A in the form of Retinol.

In our Doctor Mi! skincare products you will often find vitamin B3 under the name niacinamide. The vitamin improves the regenerative ability of your skin and supports the formation of ceramides, which are crucial for a strong skin barrier. Niacinamide has an anti-inflammatory effect and effectively helps with skin blemishes.

You can find vitamin B3 mainly in animal foods, such as:

  • Fish
  • Eggs
  • Poultry
  • Dairy products

Tip: If you do not eat animal products, there are alternatively vitamin B3 capsules.


Vitamin B7


Vitamin B7, also known as biotin or vitamin H, is one of the water-soluble vitamins. Its function is to convert substances into energy. It has a strengthening effect on skin, hair and nails. Biotin promotes the growth of the sebaceous glands and supports the skin's own regeneration processes. If you lack vitamin B7 over a long period of time, dry and flaky skin often results.


With a balanced diet you automatically take a healthy portion of biotin to you, because it is often found in plant foods. If you are deficient in vitamin B7, be sure to include the following products in your diet:

  • Legumes

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that does not need to be ingested through food, but can be produced by the body itself. For the most part, the vitamin is formed under the influence of sunlight in your skin. It protects against free radicals, prevents inflammation and has a positive influence on the skin renewal process. For this reason, vitamin D is often used for inflammatory skin diseases such as neurodermatitis or acne. Vitamin D is often talked about in connection with high sun protection factor. We know today that it is more important to protect against harmful UV radiation sufficiently with a sun protection factor 50+ and in case of doubt to substitute vitamin D in the form of capsules to compensate for a possible deficiency.
