You’ve probably recognised Vitamin E in many beauty products from face creams to hair care and even nail products. Formally also know as Tocopherol, Vitamin E is an antioxidant, which means that it protects your cells from damage. Put simply, Vitamin E in its purest form moisturises, nourishes and restores the skin.

Overall, by consuming foods rich in Vitamin E and using products that contain this nutrient, it will do wonders to protect and rejuvenate your skin.

Here are the 5 benefits of Vitamin E:

  • 1.It helps prevent against signs of ageing

Vitamin E is a popular ingredient in anti-ageing skincare products, as it’s known to reverse signs of ageing including wrinkles and sagging skin. One of the biggest causes of ageing is exposure to UV light and environmental pollutants. Vitamin E helps fight against these by neutralising free radicals that damage collagen (your skin’s elasticity).

Try Plunkett’s Vita E Pure Vitamin E Super Concentrate Oil enriched with Rosehip Oil to protect and nourish against signs of ageing.

  • 2.Moisturises and replenishes your skin

Vitamin E is a powerful oil-soluble nutrient that moisturises and replenishes your skin. It aids in restoring lost moisture and is especially helpful for dry and damaged skin. If you have sensitive skin, mix a few drops of Vitamin E oil with your moisturiser and apply before going to bed. It also fights inflammation including red, itchy and irritated skin.

  • 3.Soothes itchy skin

In some cases, rashes can last for an extended period of time, often leaving you feeling uncomfortable. Vitamin E is a fantastic natural ingredient to provide comfort to dry and irritated skin. It can help relieve itchy skin by moisturising and improving the texture of your skin.  Vitamin E works to soothe the skin in addition to reducing the overall rash appearance.

  • 4.Acts as a cleaning agent

Vitamin E oil is also popular as a natural cleanser for your face. Add a few drops of Vitamin E oil on a cotton pad and gently wipe your face. Not only will it clean your face, but it will also nourish your skin, leaving your face feeling and looking softer and more radiant.

  • 5.It can lessen the appearance of scars

If you’re looking for a natural solution to lessen the appearance of scars on your body, try using Vitamin E products. The nutrient is known to help regenerate new skin cells and thus help reduce the appearance of these marks. You can use it as a topical ointment by massaging the oil on scars post silicon treatment and even minor wounds to assist in repairing skin.
