For Sun Damage And Dry Skin
Vitamin E helps in retaining the skin’s natural moisturizers. It also helps by preventing water loss and in restoring the skin’s oil balance. They act as a one of the main protectors of your skin from sun damage. UV light depletes Vitamin E in the skin so it should be replenished for continuous protections. This is the reason why sunscreens and anti-ageing products have vitamin E.
Vitamin E is often recommended as a skin supplement and it should be taken in (ingested orally through food or drug) and out (topical application on skin) for holistic effect.
For Reducing Fine Lines And Wrinkles
Wrinkles and facial lines — they’re inevitable with age but women (and men) can help prevent them nonetheless. The ‘anti-wrinkle’ industry is a multi-billion dollar industry. Although everyone understands that ageing is not an illness, people would still spend to prevent or reduce wrinkles.
The most natural and least invasive way of reducing fine lines and wrinkles is to apply Vitamin E on the skin. The miracle vitamin promotes the production of elastin and collagen. They help increase skin elasticity which helps reduce wrinkles — making the skin look younger and fresher.
For Dark Spots And Acne Scars
Apart from its use for wrinkles, vitamin E can also be used to prevent and heal acne marks and dark spots on the skin.
There’s a study of children with surgical scars that used vitamin E as a topical agent. The conclusion was that topical use of vitamin E before and after surgery improved surgical wound healing and improved cosmetic results. Although the experiment was not specifically for dark spots and acne scars, the result was very suggestive. Sure, there’s little proof that vitamin E oil can help heal scars but there are countless of anecdotal claims that Vitamin E helps reduce visibility of acne scars and dark spots.
The result is expected because Vitamin E is popularly known as an antioxidant that helps hasten the skin’s healing process.
For Stretch Marks
Stretch marks are very common, but there is evidence that they can be prevented or healed. Vitamin E oil is very effective in reducing stretch marks on your abdomen during pregnancy. Start using vitamin E enriched oil as soon as your abdomen starts expanding. It will not only help in reducing stretch marks but will also relieve you from itching.
Pure vitamin E oil is very thick and may not come handy while using for skin. You can either use pure almond oil or mix thick vitamin E oil in some other base cream or lotion for best results.
