Vitamin E is a natural choice for skin cream for a wide variety of reasons. Not only does it help heal scars, but it also nourishes and moisturizes skin at the same time. It can help everything from the scaly skin on your elbows to tempering a sunburn and changing it to a tan. There are many reasons the properties of vitamin E help the skin.
Here’s some quick science behind why it’s so great:
① Vitamin E is an antioxidant. Antioxidant fights free radicals that damage and kill skin cells.
② It helps repair the damage done to the cells and prevents cell death. The effects of this repair is a more youthful, plumper skin as it repairs traumatized skin cells, which restores collagen, fades age spots, and heals scarring.
You can find the oil or gel caps available at any drugstore and most groceries.
The GOOD, natural vitamin E is D-alpha tocopherol.
You will see this on the back of the bottle where it shows the ingredients, meaning the vitamin E oil is in its natural state, unaltered, and rich with good things for your skin. Natural vitamin E may either be D-alpha tocopheryl acetate, d-alpha tocopherol or d-alpha tocopheryl succinate. It can also be a mix of gamma, beta, and delta tocopherols.
The BAD vitamin E is Dl –alpha tocopherol.
The Dl means it’s a synthetic vitamin E which is a petroleum product that is only 12 percent as potent. If you read the label of synthetic vitamin E, the first thing you notice is that the name of it starts with a Dl not a D. So again, choose carefully.
When you use it as an eye cream, it won’t stretch the skin, but make it thicker and stronger. While you’ll eventually age, there’s no reason to look older than you need to look…..or even your own age! Start using this easy miracle and it won’t be long before others will notice the difference.
② Puncture your Nature Made Vitamin E capsule with a clean, sterilized needle or pin (just give it a swipe with rubbing alcohol).
③ Squeeze the contents of the vitamin E on your palm and apply with your ring finger (least amount of pressure) lightly under the eye area, at the sides and over the eyelids.
④ This is ideal to do before bed, as your skin cells turn over the most when you sleep and are more apt to fully absorb the vitamin E.
Voila! You have a simple, inexpensive, all-natural eye cream that is free of harmful parabens, alcohols, and silicone that top-of-the-line eye creams contain, and will deliver moisture, radiance, and healing to your skin!
Doing this way, the emollient properties of Vitamin E oil will allow the water to hydrate while penetrating through the skin.
