Vitamin E oil is a great source for treating many skin issues. Here are some examples:
Anti-aging: Vitamin E oil has an amazing anti-aging effect on skin. Lack of proper skin care regime, and habits like excessive intake of alcohol and smoking, often trigger the onset of signs of aging before time. Topical application of Vitamin E oil promotes production of two important protein components namely, collagen and elastin that improves skin elasticity. This in turn reduces the appearances of the visible age spots, fine lines or wrinkles, and gives you a younger-looking skin.
Dryness: Vitamin E prevents water loss from the skin, and helps it to retain its natural moisture. Thus, it makes dull, dry skin look healthy and well-moisturized.
Sunburns: Vitamin E oil is popularly used to treat minor sunburns. When applied topically, it is readily absorbed by the epidermis layer of the skin, and it heals the damages caused by ultraviolet radiation.
Scars: Vitamin E is useful for removing scars from the skin. When it is applied on acne scars or any other forms of scars caused due to some bruises, burns, etc., it first softens up the skin of the affected area, and then lightens the mark in a few weeks. Eventually, the scar will fade out within a few months. Vitamin E speeds up the process of regeneration of skin cells and the dead, damaged skin cells are replaced with new ones. This way, it helps to get rid of the scar tissue. However, it may not be that effective for surgical scars.
Stretch Marks: This oil is equally effective on stretch marks. Pregnant women should start applying vitamin E oil on the abdomen, when the belly starts expanding. This will not only bring relief from the itching sensation caused by the stretching of the skin, but also prevent stretch marks.
Nails/Cuticle Problems: Vitamin E oil is known to maintain the health of nails. A few drops of the oil can help reduce breakage of the nails, and poorly kept nails can be brought back to health, if it is used regularly.
