What? Vitamin E plays a crucial role in protecting skin cells and membranes from environmental damage. This protection extends to preventing damage to the skin from UV rays, pollutants and the effects of aging. The d-alpha-tocopherol in Vitamin E also protects against lipid peroxidation, which helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Foods rich in Vitamin E pass through cellular membranes of the skin and offer protection. This is why many supplement manufacturers are making Vitamin E oils and topical ointments. These may be applied directly on the skin for protection or for antioxidant benefits.
Why? The vitamin E oil is clinically proven to smooth wrinkles and firm skin. It protects against, and alleviates, chapping, cracking and roughness due to dryness. 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 aging. Incidentally, aging 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 the Vitamin E oil.
