Tocopherols - Natural Vit E
Vitamin E oil is one such naturally-occurring oil, which is soluble in lipid and is non-enzymatic. It acts as an antioxidant, and prevents the formation of free radicals on the skin cells. It also has anti-inflammatory properties. Due to the presence of such essential qualities, it is very good for the skin. Some common skin problems which can be resolved with the help of vitamin E oil are as follows:
Skin Growing Old?
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 almond 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. Its antioxidant properties further fight off damaging effects of free radicals, and minimizes the chances of appearances of new wrinkles. For this reason, vitamin E is used as a key ingredient in several anti-aging creams and lotions that are available in the market.
Is the Skin Feeling Dry?
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. If it is used for the purpose of deep pore cleansing of dry skin on a regular basis, it restores the normal oil balance of the skin.
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. Thus you get relief from pain. It can also provide protection to the skin from sun damage. So, it is added to sunscreen lotion of various brands, to improve its sun protection quality.
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.
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. Those who have already developed stretch marks should apply the oil to get rid of them. It increases the growth of new skin cells in the area, and also helps to restore the natural elastic properties of the skin. Thus regular application helps to eliminate the ugly stretch marks.
A number of skin conditions can be treated with vitamin E oil. Psoriasis is one such condition where the skin turns dry, scaly, and red patches appear on it. Vitamin E oil repairs the skin damage and brings about improvement in the condition. It can also be used for the treatment of eczema, where its antioxidant qualities bring down the skin inflammation. It also relieves the itchiness and moisturizes the dry skin really well.
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.
