Which 4 Vitamins Help with Pigment Spots?

The following vitamins have proven particularly effective in medical and cosmetic applications against pigment spots.

  1. Vitamin A-containing creams
  2. Creams or serums containing vitamin C, which should ideally be combined with vitamin E. Treatment with organic sulphur (MSM) together with ester C (vitamin C) has been successful in some patients as a dietary supplement.
  3. Treatment with a vitamin B12 supplement is promising if other methods haven’t been successful! A vitamin B12 deficiency is overlooked by many dermatologists!
  4. Niacinamide (vitamin B3) is used by the cosmetics industry in various creams.
