Skin Benefits of Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a potent antioxidant used to prevent premature aging. It is a vital nutrient that must be included in your daily diet. Vitamin E is available in many different forms, and these include oral capsules, lotions, creams and oil.

Daily oral intake of vitamin supplements makes the skin healthy and blooming. It also makes your hair shinier and healthier. Aside from these, here are some other benefits of Vitamin E to the skin:

  • Anti-wrinkle. Fine lines and wrinkles are caused by aging, improper skin care and damage from free radicals. Bad habits like excessive drinking and smoking also contribute to the development of wrinkles. Vitamin E helps prevent wrinkle formation by blocking the damaging free radicals. The vitamin boosts the production of collagen, a connective tissue that maintains the skin’s elasticity, thus preventing wrinkle formation.

  • Moisture Therapy. Vitamin E does not only prevent wrinkles, it brings back the skin’s moisture as well. Although pure vitamin E oil is too heavy for daily use, using it twice a week can yield welcome result. Mix pure Vitamin E oil with olive oil, emu oil or any other carrier oil and apply thinly on your face. This concoction is proven to heal damaged skin and preserve its natural moisture, making your skin more supple and younger-looking.
  • Scar Eraser. Did you know that vitamin E can help reduce the appearance of unsightly scar tissues? Vitamin E’s potent antioxidant power promotes the production of collagen, which also contributes to the skin’s elasticity, thus making the scares “heal” over time.
  • Vanishes Brown Spots. Like wrinkles, brown spots are also a sign of aging. These spots are also caused by too much sun exposure, poor liver, or damage from free radicals. Apply vitamin E directly into your brown spots. The oil will lubricate the cell membranes, encourage cell regeneration and eventually lightens and smoothens the brown, rough skin.
  • Heals and Moisturizes Cuticles. You can apply vitamin E oil directly to your cuticles. Doing this will treat dry cuticles and prevent them from cracking.

Vitamin E is widely available. You can buy it from drugstores, grocery stores and online shops. Myra is among the most popular brands of Vitamin E supplement and products in the Philippines, but there many others sold under different trade names.
