Who out there isn’t waging a war against aging? Unless you’re under the age of 25 or so, chances are you give some consideration to preventing the telltale signs of, let’s say, maturity. But rather than breaking the bank with expensive creams, gels and whatever else is on the market, there’s another solution that’s not only cheaper, but also just as effective and extremely beneficial to your health—Vitamin E. Vitamin E can be purchased in either liquid or capsule form. I use both, but many folks buy the capsules for both consumption and topical use, just by puncturing the capsule. And Vitamin E oil can be found at any drug or grocery store. In case you’re not quite convinced, here are a few ways Vitamin E can help rejuvenate your skin.
Wrinkles come with age. They are a product of sun exposure, free radical damage, bad diet, smoking and more. Vitamin E oil helps by preventing free radical damage and boosts collagen production, which improves skin’s elasticity. It also treats wrinkles by supporting new skin cell growth and speeding up cell regeneration.
Everyone knows night skin treatments are very important and this is, by far, the best time to use pure Vitamin E oil, due to how thick and sticky it is. For added concentrated healing and smooth application, combine Vitamin E oil with olive oil. Olive oil contains oleic acid, which makes skin more permeable and able to hold in necessary moisture. Make this part of your nightly beauty regimen and you’re sure to see amazing results in no time.
Scar tissue is stubborn skin that comes from burns, old wounds and surgeries. Pure vitamin E oil is helpful for scar healing and prevention because it goes beneath the surface of skin to block free radicals. Free radicals are especially harmful to scar tissue because they prohibit healing. Diane Irons, author of “911 Beauty Secrets: an Emergency Guide to Looking Great at Every Age, Size and Budget,” explains that the strong antioxidant power in vitamin E also aids in collagen production, which gives skin its elasticity and is not present in scar tissue.
Brown spots on the skin are caused by aging, free radical damage and poor liver function. Vitamin E oil prevents and repairs free radical damage. When applied topically to brown spots on the skin, it helps to lighten and smooth the rough skin by lubricating cell membranes and encouraging cell regeneration. — Lindy Kirk
