We already know that vitamin E is, well, a vitamin, and it touts some impressive health benefits. It is less well known that vitamin E is essential for healthy skin. You may have overlooked this vitamin amidst a bounty of skin care ingredients, but it merits recognition.
Vitamin E works as a defense against the unavoidable environmental stressors that compromise our best skin. As a nutrient and antioxidant, vitamin E adds an additional layer of protection against the sun, wind, and pollution. For your reference, here’s a straightforward list of what vitamin E can do for your skin.
Blocks Free Radicals
Vitamin E is an antioxidant that works to prevent the damage of free radicals and UV radiation. Free radicals have been shown to play a part in the aging process; by fighting off free radicals, we can reduce wrinkles and keep the skin youthful. Vitamin E oil also helps to repair the damage already caused by free radicals, such as brown spots.
Additionally, the antioxidant properties of vitamin E can reduce the damage caused by sun exposure. We always recommend using a sunscreen to prevent sun damage!
Acts as an Anti-Inflammatory
Vitamin E has been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects on the skin. This calming effect is beneficial for those with sensitive skin and for specific skin concerns.
On top of its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, Vitamin E is a natural moisturizer. Every skin type requires a moisturizer to prevent the skin from drying out.
We know that it’s never too soon to start an anti-aging routine. Exposure to the sun and free radicals cannot be seen right away; we recommend taking preventative action against aging and sun damage for healthy skin now and into the future.
Vitamin E provides a number of benefits for the skin, especially when combined with other nutrients and antioxidants. We chose vitamin E oil as an ingredient for its natural ability to heal and protect.
