How to use it correctly
To get all the benefits of Vitamin E for the skin, you have to know how to use it. If some prefer to use the oily formula for topical use you must take the consistency in to consideration. Indeed, the vitamin E oil is particularly thick and greasy, which changes from other oils that we may be used to.
It is therefore advised to use a few drops of oil and mix it with your usual cream to enhance its effects. For people with oily skin, it may be wise to use it at night or preferably in its serum form, (see recommendation below) to allow time for the skin to absorb the oil.
Vitamin E and Vitamin C can also be used together and form a winning combination for the skin, protecting it from free radicals and rejuvenating its appearance.
Finally, vitamin E has everything our skin needs to protect, nourish and stay supple and healthy.
Particularly attacked by pollution and constantly stimulated by touch, the facial skin deserves the great care that vitamin E brings.
In addition, it is anti-inflammatory, which calms and moisturizes sensitive skin. As with any natural product, it is better to be vigilant about our use of vitamins, especially in the form of oil. Indeed, vitamin E oil can be heavy for some skin and cause pimples and inflammation, in this case a serum version will be appropriate.
It can also be used in the form of supplements or simply added to your diet.
