Vitamin E is one of the most common ingredients for skin care. It’s very beneficial for skin and it has big use in the beauty industry. It can be used in the form of oils, capsules, different types of creams, etc. It has protective benefits, it has been included in many skin care products, and that is for a big reason. It helps support the immune system and works as an antioxidant.
Skin benefits of vitamin E
Vitamin E keeps the lipids fresh which prevents moisture to escape and leave the skin dry and tight. It keeps the moisture between the skin cells and that way it can keep the skin hydrated for 16 hours.
Vitamin E is also an antioxidant- it helps neutralize harmful radicals and it prevents blackheads. Using vitamin E you protect your skin from UV exposure and not just that, but also prevents fine lines, sagging skin, wrinkles, etc.
Vitamin E rich foods
Vitamin E is naturally found in our skin. But if you want to increase the amount of vitamin in your body the best way is the natural way- by providing the body with food enriched with it.
You can find vitamin E in many foods, including:
- abalone, salmon, and other seafood
- broccoli, spinach, and other green vegetables
- nuts and seeds, such as sunflower seeds, and hazelnuts
- vegetable oils, including sunflower, wheat germ, and safflower oil
- some processed products such as cereal, juices, margarine, etc.

Using vitamin E in its pure form or in a capsule, or applying directly on the skin can cause dermatitis-type reactions (skin illness), especially for the thinner and more sensitive skin (ex. around eyes). Also overusing isn’t good for those who are prone to acne and breakouts.
