Vitamin E is a superstar ingredient and for good reason. It’s found in a number of foods but as the trend for vitamin-rich skincare grows, it’s now found in many skincare products. But what exactly is vitamin E? And what can it do for your skin? We break down what makes vitamin E so special.
WHAT IS VITAMIN E?
Vitamin E – or as we like to call it, The Underrated Vitamin – is a nutrient that helps keep your skin feeling fresh and healthy. As it’s also an antioxidant, it helps protect your skin from everyday stressors, like pollution. We mostly absorb vitamin E in the foods we eat but, because of the benefits we can get from putting it onto our skin, it’s now used in a number of skincare products. Discover these benefits below.
THE BENEFITS OF VITAMIN E FOR SKIN
HELPS PROTECT FROM FREE RADICALS
Vitamin E is an antioxidant. And antioxidants are known to help protect your skin from free radicals. Free radicals are molecules in the air that cause damage to our skin, like weakening its elasticity. And, because free radicals are all around us, they’re pretty hard to avoid. But we can prevent them from affecting us. Vitamin E helps to protect our skin cells from environmental stressors and help keep our skin feeling fresh and healthy, even in the city.
HELPS MOISTURISE THE SKIN
Though it’s championed for its antioxidant properties, vitamin E also has moisturising benefits and can help keep your skin feel hydrated for longer. Vitamin E forms a protective barrier around your skin cells which prevents moisture loss and keeps your skin looking healthy and hydrated.
HELPS RESTORE THE SKIN
Vitamin E helps to restore skin’s moisture. It works by locking in that much-needed replenishment, helping to avoid moisture loss and, in turn, helping to protect from external aggressors. As a fat-soluble vitamin, it also preserves the lipids (fats) in your face, leaving you with plumper looking skin.
