Vitamin E seems to be everywhere you look, from moisturizers and serums to supplements. Why should you seek out Vitamin E? Let’s delve into the amazing properties of this group of compounds.
Sure, it is a vitamin but technically, it is a family of oil-soluble antioxidants. Of the eight chemical forms of naturally occurring Vitamin E, tocopherol is the form you’ll find in beauty products. Look for tocopherol in the ingredients of products to check for Vitamin E.
Vitamin E is a powerful ally for skin in treating disorders as well as helping to repair skin. Cellular restoration is a super power of Vitamin E, especially from sun damage. But that’s just the beginning. It helps to heal burns or scars. Now that’s powerful. Since Vitamin E is an antioxidant, it removes free radicals and prevents oxidative damage to the cells. Your skin is under daily attack from free radicals due to environmental stressors like air pollution and unprotected sun exposure.
Vitamin E proves beneficial in moisturizing and healing. It strengthens the skin barrier function which is essential in keeping in moisture. This powerhouse element has natural anti-inflammatory benefits so it soothes and calms the skin. Vitamin E occurs naturally in the body and can even relieve eczema.
It is not necessarily ideal for people who have oily, supersensitive or issues with breakouts. Some people have allergies to Vitamin E which can result in itching or even a rash as it touches the skin. Less than one percent of people are topically sensitive to Vitamin E, so that is a rarity.
