Vitamin e oil contains powerful antioxidants that can rejuvenate the skin and is believed to improve overall health.
It is easily absorbed, not only acting as a natural moisturiser, but carrying nutrients to the skin layers that can help with repairs and nerve ending function.
Vitamin E oil is found in many commercial products, but by using 100% pure Vitamin E oil you will avoid chemicals and preservatives added to manufacturers’ cosmetic preparations.
For beautiful skin, try Vitamin E oil as a moisturiser, lip balm (perhaps mixed with a little honey), makeup remover, and to aid the healing of scars. Vitamin E oil can both treat and reduce the likelihood of stretch marks. Users report reduction in dark circles under the eyes from applying and massaging in vitamin e oil either directly or by adding a few drops to their usual face creams.
Vitamin E oil, by itself, is an excellent overnight skin rejuvenation choice, and can be used to replace night creams by people who are not prone to oily skin or acne breakouts. Those with already oily skin can benefit from its antioxidant properties by using it overnight once a week. For normal skin use vitamin E oil as a night moisturiser three times a week and, for dry skin, up to five times a week.
Vitamin E for hair condition and growth
Vitamin E oil is believed to stimulate hair follicles by increasing circulation to the scalp so it can be helpful with hair growth and problem scalp conditions*.
To aid application it should be mixed with an equal amount of grapeseed oil. Section the hair and rub into the scalp.
Vitamin E oil can also be applied to damp newly washed hair with the fingertips to help strengthen damaged and brittle hair.
- Important Note: Some people are sensitive to Vitamin E oil. If you notice any itching, inflamation or redness after using the oil wash it off immediately.
