Vitamin E benefits for Skin and Hair – A wonder nutrient
You must have heard of dermatologists recommending Vitamin E enrich skin care products. Usually, when you visit a dermatologist for concerns such as scars, anti-ageing, pigmentation, stretch marks, hair related problems etc. they refer some skin/hair care products that happen to address all your concerns and reprieve you from these problems. The one quintessential ingredient of these saviors is often Vitamin E. And, it’s not only recommended for outer application but also as a skin care supplement.
During one of my USA visits, my skin got very dull and hair started falling rapidly. Struck by these sudden changes in my body I visited a dermatologist, who suggested me to include Vitamin E capsules in my diet along with other recommended skin care products. Vitamin E capsules are good for skin but these should not be devoured without a doctor’s consultation.
However, you can get Vitamin E serums from the market for external application to get numerous skin and hair benefits.
Vitamin E benefits for skin
Defers ageing: As we age our skin starts losing its elasticity and becomes saggy. The firmness is mainly caused by collagen generation and cell turnover rate, but as we age this rate decreases and causes the skin to lose its bouncing power. Moreover, the kind of atmosphere we are all living in these days is filled with anti-skin elements such as pollutants, chemicals, stress and unhealthy lifestyle. All these scary rudiments cause pre-mature wrinkles and fine lines. But if we regularly stick to Vitamin E oil application, all these worries can be deferred. All you need to do is, before going to bed, sparingly apply Vitamin E oil on face and neck, and leave the rest up to this miraculous oil.
Skin moisturizer: People with dry skin you should religiously stick to Vitamin E application. It helps the skin to retain its moisture level, and keeps it soft & healthy. I have oily skin but still I regularly apply Vitamin E oil on my skin. Contrary to the thinking that oily skin people should not use Vitamin E as it breaks the skin out, I feel since I have started using this oil my skin texture has improved manifolds. And yeah, I am not facing any skin breakouts.
Helps in reducing pigmentation, blemishes and dark spots: Pigmentation, blemishes and dark spots are a common problem these days. They are generally triggered by free radical damage or ageing. Vitamin E is believed to be effective in repairing free radical damage and lightening these spots, thereby providing even skin tone that is free of pigmentation and dark spots.

Under eye area is the most sensitive area of our face. This skin is so delicate that it is always recommended to not to use any scrubs or face packs here. Even while applying an eye cream we should always use ring finger, as it causes the minimum pressure, to spread it out. Consistent use of Vitamin E can help deferring crow’s feet or fine lines.
