Although it is difficult to reverse the effects of aged skin, we can however improve some, such as dull complexion, lack of firmness and sensitivity. Vitamin E has the property of stimulating the production of collagen that maintains the elasticity of our skin. By including vitamin E in the form that we prefer to our beauty routine, you’ll quickly notice an improvement of the texture and the firmness. Vitamin E is also a source of antioxidants, it is ideal for fighting free radicals responsible for hyperpigmentation and brown spots that also appear with age.

In addition to reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, vitamin E also prevents their formation by fighting against the loss of elasticity of the skin. Wrinkles and fine lines are some of the most common signs of aging. Vitamin E can help reduce the appearance of both by promoting cell regeneration and protecting against the damage caused by free radicals.

In addition, vitamin E can help prevent the loss of elasticity in the skin, which can lead to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines.

How to use Vitamin E 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.

Also, it’s best to start using vitamin E a few days a week and build up to daily use. If you have sensitive skin, you may want to start with once a week and increase as your skin gets used to it.

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.

A few things you should keep in mind when using vitamin E on your skin:

  • Vitamin E is fat-soluble, so it works best when applied to damp or skin.

  • You only need a small amount of vitamin E for it to be effective, so don’t go overboard when applying it to your skin.
  • If you have sensitive skin, be sure to test the vitamin E on a small area of skin before applying it to your entire face or body.
  • Vitamin E can be applied directly to the skin or mixed with a moisturizer, lotion, or oil.
  • Vitamin E is also available in capsule form. If you opt for this option, simply puncture the capsule and apply the contents to your skin.

In conclusion, vitamin E is a great choice for those looking for an antioxidant to help protect their skin from damage caused by free radicals. It can also help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and prevent the loss of elasticity in the skin. Vitamin E is available in capsule form, as an oil, or in a serum, so there is an option for everyone. Just be sure to start with a small amount and test it on a small area of skin before applying it to your entire face or body.
