Filled with anti-oxidants, natural healing agents and anti-inflammatory properties, Vitamin E is also called ‘skin Vitamin’

Pollution, dust, harmful UV rays stress, poor diet etc. cause harm to the skin as they generate free radicals which reduce collagen in the skin resulting in damaged skin cells. This continuous damage to collagen and skin cells leads to early signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles. To fight the free radicals, your skin needs anti-oxidants and of which Vitamin E is a great source. Vitamin E naturally present in skin fights the free radicals and tries to restore collagen but as the skin is exposed more to the harmful environment these days, the damage done is more than what vitamin E naturally present can take care of. As a result, its reserve reduces in the skin over a period of time. Therefore, it is essential to replenish vitamin E back into the skin regularly. Vitamin E is very rich in antioxidants. These antioxidants fight free radicals and thereby prevent early aging.

Vitamin E is thick and rich in nature and is considered very beneficial for dry and flaky skin. As dry skin tends to lose moisture and essential nutrients quickly, it gets fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging earlier.

Improved number of healthy cells also indicates a faster rate of healing in the skin which makes the skin look and feel healthy. As vitamin E enhances the healing of cells, it also helps in getting rid of scars. As the number of healthy cells is more, they replace damaged scar cells making it look lighter. Not just acne scars but scars caused due to injury, surgery, accidents etc. can be lightened over a period of time if (oils rich in vitamin E) are used regularly. If you check ingredients in any scar removing creams or ointments, you will surely find vitamin E in there.
