Vitamin E makes an appearance in an abundance of cosmetic products - and for good reason! A phenomenal antioxidant, Vitamin E, can be slathered onto your skin topically or swallowed in a capsule. The vitamin helps to keep your body healthy by boosting your immune system and keep vessels functioning properly. This multitasker of an ingredient can work wonders for your hair, skin and nails. Vitamin E exists in eight chemical forms (alpha-, beta-, gamma-, and delta-tocopherol and alpha-, beta-, gamma-, and delta-tocotrienol). Read on for some suggestions as to how you can incorporate the vitamin into your skincare regimen.
Apply Vitamin E Oil At Night
This vitamin features a thicker consistency, so it’s best used at night like a night cream. You can mix it with your regular night cream to amp up moisturization if you’re feeling particularly dry. Apply to your face, neck and decolletage — don’t just stop at your jawline!
Combine It With Vitamin C
When you mix Vitamin E with Vitamin C, you increase your protection from UVA and UVB rays. This defends against free radicals, which can lead to a reduction in wrinkles and fine lines. Vitamin E is also an anti-inflammatory, so it calms and hydrates even the most sensitive skin.
Vitamin E has been proven to repair and improve the appearance of scars. You can also use it on cuts and scabs to help them heal faster underneath a bandage.
Infuse Massive Moisture
Massage Vitamin E oil onto your cuticles and lips to help prevent chapped skin. You can also use it on your hair to make it feel less dry and brittle.
One thing to note: If you’re prone to breakouts, you may want to opt for another ingredient in lieu of Vitamin E on your face. While very effective, it can be a bit heavy for acne-prone skin.
We love to use it to moisturize our skin, specifically in our DCL Hydro Lipid Body Emulsion. The state-of-the-art, spray-on emulsion is infused with grapeseed oil and, of course, vitamin E, which defends against dehydration and irritation.
