Vitamin E- An asset in your skincare game.

Skincare is getting groovy every single day. New inventions keep adding to the queue and the curiosity to test the product follows. However, vitamins are the most popular ingredients in the skincare industry including vitamins A, C, and E. Nutrient-rich foods are the ideal sources of these vitamins meanwhile topical application also has alot of benefits.

If you Navigate through the ingredients of your skincare products you will always see vitamin E as one of the ingredients, especially in nourishing creams and moisturizers.

Let's find out what is Vitamin E and what it does to our skin.

What is Vitamin E

Vitamin E occurs in 8 different forms, the most common being Tocopherol is seen in supplements and skincare formulations.

Vitamin E Is a powerful antioxidant, a free radical scavenger, and a fat-soluble vitamin. It is found throughout the human body and is an essential component of the skin and fatty tissues. The human body is unable to manufacture Vitamin E, instead, foods rich in this nutrient are consumed which includes plant-based foods, seeds, nuts, and green leafy vegetables.

The most irresistible feature that Vitamin E beholds is that it is a very hydrating molecule- it acts both as a humectant and an emollient( it not only absorbs water into the skin but also traps it)

Why you should use Vitamin E in your skincare routine?

Vitamin E moisturizes and heals the skin. It works on strengthening the barrier of the skin. In addition to this vitamin E has natural anti-inflammatory properties, it soothes and calms the skin. 

The topical application has a alot of benefits on the skin.

Moreover, vitamin E prevents oxidative damage to cells by eliminating free radicals protecting the skin proteins, connective tissues, and cell membranes. It also protects the skin from ultraviolet radiation hence slowing the aging process of the skin. Vitamin E also protects the collagen which contributes to the firmness of the skin.

Vitamin E also has anti-inflammatory properties. Vitamin E is also referred to as the Workhouse of a vitamin.

It also protects the elastin of the skin maintaining the elasticity of the skin.

When applied topically the vitamin suppresses the expression of the enzymes that contribute to the aging of skin.

Vitamin E is beneficial for almost all skin types. It has shown improvement with eczema.

It improves the texture of dull and dry skin.

What depletes the Vitamin E in our skin?

The UV radiation stressors lower the skin's vitamin E levels. Smoking also depletes the skin from Vitamin E leading generation of free radicals and  early aging of the skin 

Age also plays a role in the amount of vitamin E in the skin, with increasing age the levels decline.

What form of Vitamin E helps restore our Skin?

On any acne-prone skin using vitamin E oil directly might give more damage to the skin than providing any benefit. It might clog the pores worsening the acne. Cutting open a  vitamin E capsule and directly applying it to your face might not absorb enough due to its large molecular size 

A serum formulation is ideal for incorporating Vitamin E into your skincare. Serum is the best way to maximize the anti-aging effects by penetrating deeper into the layers of the skin.

Moisturizers with as little as 0.1% vitamin E labels are enough to improve the overall texture and health of the skin.

Formulations that combine vitamin E and vitamin C have been shown to produce better results too.

Vitamin E has made its way into the cosmetic industry too and alot of makeup products include vitamin E in their ingredients to nourish the skin.

It is also part of anti-aging creams, eye serums, and sunscreens.

Vitamin E oil when applied to dry patches, cuticles, and rough elbows and knees has shown marked improvement in skin health. It helps with the dryness.
