Vitamin E helps maintain healthy skin and has been used as a skincare and haircare ingredient for many years. There are eight types of vitamin E. Alpha-tocopherol is the form of vitamin E most easily absorbed by the skin. Sources of vitamin E include nuts, vegetables and various oils (including olive, sunflower, safflower and wheatgerm). Vitamin E plays a significant role in cellular restoration, including helping skin to recover from scarring and sun damage. It also helps to prevent oxidative damage to the skin.
When used in tandem, vitamin E and vitamin C are great for skin. Together they can improve the appearance of uneven skin tone, brighten the complexion, and strengthen skin’s defenses against environmental stressors. They work well together because vitamin C is water soluble and works primarily on the upper layers of your skin, whereas vitamin E is oil soluble and is able to penetrate more deeply.
Vitamin E is compatible with most skin types except for extremely oily skin.
Vitamin E works well in combination with other products. It is safe for use alongside other key actives.
You will see the best results if you regularly apply a product containing Vitamin E. Vitamin E is gentle enough to use twice a day.
