We’re taking a look at why Vitamin E is so beneficial for the skin, and how you can incorporate it into your skincare routine to keep your skin looking fresh and healthy.
If your skin is fully moisturised and you take good care of your it, the chances are that Vitamin E has already snuck into your skin routine at some stage. It’s a high street favourite that has been around for years as an affordable, naturally occurring antioxidant that will leave your skin glowing and protected from environmental damage.
What is Vitamin E?
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble nutrient that occurs naturally in the body as well as in many foods. It aids with overall health, but is especially great at boosting skin health, cell function and immunity.
It’s been used in skincare for years as a gentle ingredient that keeps lipids in the skin fresh and rejuvenated. You can find Vitamin E in oral capsule form and oil form, but the easiest way you can incorporate it into your routine is through a cream or serum.
Top uses for Vitamin E on the skin:
- Increase skin’s elasticity
- Help moisturise the skin
- Protect the skin against free radicals
- Treat dry skin conditions
- Reduce the appearance of scars
Why is Vitamin E a good addition to your skin routine?
When the body is exposed to sunlight, pollution and contamination from its surrounding environment it produces free radicals that damage the skin. As a result, skin can start to look tired, aged and unhealthy. That’s where Vitamin E comes in.
Vitamin E is a great addition to your skincare routine as it helps to combat these free radicals and moisturise the skin. Collagen creation and the production of moisturising oils are stalled when the skin is exposed to rogue molecules and UV rays. So, if you want to combat this damage and increase your skin’s glow, Vitamin E is a great addition to your routine.
Not only is Vitamin E ideal for most skin types, with the exception of super oily skin, it can treat many skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis too. It’s known to help reduce the appearance of scars and moisturises even the driest of skin effectively, so it’s a real all rounder. If you suffer from acne, then the anti-inflammatory properties in Vitamin E, along with its ability to heal acne scars mean that it’s a perfect match for those who suffer from spotty, acne-prone skin.
On top of all that, Vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps to reverse the dehydration that pollution causes to the skin, without leaving an oily dew that some moisturisers cause.
