The Benefits of Vitamin E for Your Skin
By Genevieve Cunningham
The skin is the body’s biggest organ. You’ve undoubtedly heard this before, but most of us are less concerned with the specifics and more concerned with the appearance of our skin. After all, it’s our skin that remains one of the first things that others notice about us. We’d like to put our best face forward … literally. While most of us know the basics, such as keeping the skin clean and moisturizing regularly, any other specifics may or may not be as prominent in our lives or skincare routines. To help protect your skin and feel confident in yourself, take a look at why adding Vitamin E to the mix is a must.
It Slows the Aging Process
When the face begins to age, we notice. We see the age spots. We see the wrinkles creeping up around the eyes. We see these things happen to the face as well as the arms and backs of the hands. Vitamin E has been shown to slow these effects, which leaves your skin looking and feeling smooth and clear. To gain these benefits, you can use straight Vitamin E, which comes in a bottle in the health food aisle, or you can use agents high in Vitamin E such as coconut oil or olive oil.
It’s an Excellent Moisturizer
If you want a moisturizer that really soaks into the skin and enhances elasticity, Vitamin E is a great option. Unlike many moisturizers that stay on top of the skin, Vitamin E will soak through the layers of your skin and moisturize at the deepest layers. And the more moist you keep the skin, the fewer wrinkles and dry spots you’ll encounter.
It Lessens Inflammation
Another great aspect of Vitamin E is that it is a natural anti-inflammatory. You may not realize that your skin is inflamed, but it probably shows signs of inflammation fairly often. Vitamin E can help to diminish the puffiness and redness that often accompanies inflammation of any kind. This leaves you looking thinner, feeling smoother, and appreciating the state of your skin like never before.
Feeling confident in your own skin can literally change your life. If you’re already doing the basics, look to add some Vitamin E to your life in order to enhance and magnify the health of your skin. With the proper care, the best nutrients, and some necessary attention, you can have the best skin you’ve ever had in your life.
