Of the vitamins you see infused into skin care, we're going to make a wager that vitamin C, E, and A come to mind. A lesser-known vitamin you may consider looking into? Vitamin K, an ingredient known for its powers to tackle a wide range of issues. 

Vitamin K is actually most commonly found in medicinal skin care products, or those used by patients after surgeries or those with skin injuries. It's used as such because research shows that it significantly reduces healing time of skin, eases redness, minimizes swelling, and soothes inflammation. When used in your more standard OTC skin care products, it carries with it many of the same benefits, making it a popular addition to under-eye creams, serums, and healing balms.

Sound like something you may be interested in? Well, we've gathered a few of our favorites. 

Aroma Naturals Bio-Active Omega Vitamin K, A & C

This promotes an even skin tone by helping ease acne scars and fading discoloration caused by inflammation. It also gets a helping hand with the vitamins A and C, both potent antioxidants known for their roles as brighteners (vitamin C) and cell rejuvenators (vitamin A).

Naturopathica Vitamin K Brightening Eye Serum

The vitamin, while often used in medical settings, has also become a very popular addition to eye creams and serums. The reasoning follows that since the antioxidant is often used to reduce swelling and discoloration, it can help tend to these common issues in the delicate area. This serum also includes light-reflecting particles to enhance the illuminating effect.

Revision Vitamin K Serum

Along with a potent dose of vitamin K, this contains several other skin-aiding actives. There's the squalane base, which provides a hydrating slip; it also contains CoQ10 and vitamin E for added antioxidant benefits. It's then rounded out with a blend of soothing herbs.

This serum's star is certainly the live probiotics, which help fight off skin pathogens. But the added nutrients, like vitamin B, vitamin K, and folate, help reduce inflammation, strengthen the barrier, and provide a dewy glow, making this a well-rounded serum for all skin types. Bonus? It's an 80% organic formula.
