WHAT IT IS:
Vitamin E is a naturally occurring vitamin found in foods like vegetable oils, meat, eggs, milk and leafy vegetables.
WHAT IT DOES:
Vitamin E is a nutrient full of miraculous wonders that can rejuvenate your health and beauty.
It's also an anti-inflammatory, so it calms and hydrates sensitive skin.
Vitamin E oil works to block free radicals from the body, which play a large part in the aging process. If we can fight off free radicals, then we can reduce wrinkles and keep the skin youthful-looking.
Taking Vitamin E capsules is considered good for health benefits. But very few are aware that this nutrient is amazing for skin and hair health when it is directly applied on the affected areas.
HOW TO USE:
Here are some great tips on using Vitamin E in the most effective way for both your skin and hair!
- Apply it at night. The oil can be thick and greasy, so it's best used before bedtime, possibly in place of a night cream or moisturizer.
- Combine it with vitamin C because then it can act as a natural form of sun protection.
- Apply Vitamin E serum right out of the capsules to fight stubborn scars. Whether the scar is new or an old one, Vitamin E can work really well to ensure it fades away soon, leaving your skin much more beautiful.
- Most people will tell you those stubborn stretch marks are likely to stay for life. But you need not believe them. Just apply some Vitamin E liquid mixed with lemon juice on those and the marks will fade soon.
- Tough skin problems like eczema and psoriasis can also be cured by Vitamin E. Just apply Vitamin E oil on the affected skin every day and you will see improvement in skin conditions within a few weeks.
- Mix a little Vitamin E liquid with your body lotion before applying it and it will keep your skin moisturized for a longer period of time. It will also even out any brown mark or dry skin patch. You can also pour some Vitamin E oil straight into your moisturizer bottle, shake it well, and apply the mixture daily.
- Vitamin E oil helps the skin make collagen that effectively slows down the process of skin ageing. Incidentally, ageing of the skin happens due to less collagen production in it. Applying Vitamin E directly on the skin stimulates skin cells and the production of collagen makes the fine lines disappear. Regular application will also prevent new wrinkles and lines appearing on your skin, thanks to the antioxidants found in Vitamin E oil.
- Vitamin E also has the capability to slow down ageing and rejuvenate your hair. Vitamin E application helps prevent the corrosion of tissues, which in turn stops the premature graying of your hair.
- Split ends steal the beauty away from your lovely locks. But this can be treated easily with the help of Vitamin E and other oils. Mix equal parts of Vitamin E, olive oil, and coconut oil, and apply it on the split ends. Leave it on for an hour and shampoo it. Do this at least thrice a week and you will see the difference.
- Vitamin E oil may increase circulation to the scalp. This temporarily increases blood flow to the area and helps enhance the health and strength of the hair follicles. Vitamin E oil can also work to hydrate and moisturize dry, brittle hair.
