Top 7 Beauty Benefits of Vitamin E to Your Routine

Vitamin E is a wonder drug! It can treat a wide range of problems from the heart, to the eyes however it is commonly used to heal parched and dehydrated skin and is increasingly found in all pharmaceutically produced skin care products. Vitamin E or alpha-tocopherol is a fat-soluble antioxidant that is predominantly found in green leafy vegetables, nuts and seeds, seafood, and fruits. Vitamin E supplements are prescribed when your body is, for some reason, unable to absorb the nutrient from your regular diet. Topical application of Vitamin E can be in the form of an oil extract used on your skin and in your hair for growth and nourishment. Here are the top 7 benefits of using Vitamin E in your daily beauty routine.

Wound Healing

Typically aloe vera comes to mind when we think of ways to naturally treat first-degree burns, but vitamin E can help, too. Your body naturally creates collagen (a type of protein) that aids in creating a scar after you’ve damaged your skin. Vitamin E protects collagen and further supports the healing of damaged cells. Here’s what to do: After cleaning and cooling the burn with cool water, gently apply a few drops of pure vitamin E oil every one to four hours. Just remember if your skin is broken, wait a few days until it closes before applying.

Anti-Aging Properties

Vitamin E can aid in giving you beautiful skin and is commonly used to treat wrinkles because it speeds up cell regeneration, promotes elasticity, and protects collagen fibres. Apply a few drops of pure vitamin E on a cleansed face to improve your skin’s elasticity and firmness.


Sturm also suggested applying vitamin E to retain the skin’s natural moisture content, which in turn can freshen the look of dull or dry skin. For extra dry skin, you can regularly use vitamin E oil in its purest form to further support collagen regeneration.

Lightens Dark Spots

Dark spots can be attributed to a variety of factors such as free radical damage, ageing, liver problems, etc. Vitamin E can alleviate such problems. Gently massage a few drops of vitamin E over the affected areas to increase moisture and minimise the hyperpigmentation.

Hair Growth

Vitamin E stimulates hair growth because it contains antioxidants that improve the circulation of blood to all parts of our body — including the scalp. Gently massage vitamin E onto your scalp before bed for best results.

Better Nails

Want to maintain that super cute mani-pedi a little longer than two weeks? Simply apply a few drops of vitamin E oil to your nails and cuticles to moisturise, avoid cracking and splitting of nails, and generally improve health and glow.

Makeup Remover

Pure vitamin E oil can gently melt away all types of makeup with a few swipes. Follow up with your favourite facial cleanser for the ultimate cleanse.
