Vitamin E, natural antioxidant
Vitamins are a common ingredient in many skincare and beauty products in the market, and vitamin E is one of the most popular ones in use. Vitamin E is naturally found in our bodies and our diet is a major source of this vitamin. Read to know how vitamin E helps your skin and why a vitamin E skincare product should be a part of your daily skincare routine.
1. How vitamin E helps you
Vitamin E protects the membranes of all the cells in your body. It helps fight the damage caused by oxygen from free radicals and it can also fight against inflammation, which is why it's thought to protect against heart disease and cancer.
2. Vitamin E for your skin
This skin saviour ensures the flexibility and fluidity of cell membranes and is critical in maintaining the suppleness and elasticity of the skin. It's also a part of the essential anti-ageing molecules, and can protect against sun exposure and pollution. Plus it has a hydrating and nourishing action and helps microcirculation. Phew, that's a lot of benefits. This is why you'll see vitamin E in a large variety of oils and moisturisers for the face, as well as for the body, hair and nails. In fact, not taking on board enough vitamin E can cause acne. The Revitalift Moisturizing Day Cream by L’Oréal Paris harnesses the power of Vitamin E to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and boost skin firmness, youthfulness and radiance. The Revitalift day cream also re-firms, restores, and replumps the skin.
3. Source of vitamin E
The principal source of vitamin E is our food. It's in grain, nut and seed oils, especially wheatgerm oil. If you're on a weight-loss regime, be careful not to limit your consumption of vitamin E. Your skin will become dry and uncomfortable very quickly and fine lines will appear and deepen.
4. Vitamin E in skincare products
Not only does this wonder ingredient aid skin suppleness, protect against aging, soothe sensitive skin, and repair damage caused by pollution, it also conserves creams and stops them from becoming rancid through oxidation! It can be formulated as an oil, cream, butter or balm. Apply in the morning to nourish and protect and in the evening to soften and soothe. We don't need to be told twice.
We hope these facts about vitamin E are enough to get you on board! Have a nutritious diet rich in vitamin E and make vitamin E infused skincare products a part of your daily skincare routine to enjoy smooth and plump skin that looks young and is healthy!
