5 Benefits Of Topically Applied Vitamin E Oil

1. Prevent Skin Aging & Wrinkles

As an antioxidant, vitamin E helps to neutralize free radicals – compounds that cause cell damage and play a role in the onset of cancer and heart disease. Free radicals also contribute to the aging of cells, including skin cells.

Using vitamin E oil on the skin may reduce free radical damage (including wrinkles) caused by sun exposure, smoking, and alcohol intake. Vitamin E may also reduce the appearance of fine lines by increasing the production of collagen, a substance that keeps the skin elastic; and by aiding the growth and regeneration of skin cells.

To use vitamin E to prevent aging and fine lines, dab the undiluted oil around the eye area or other areas where wrinkles tend to form. You could also mix up an anti-aging mask comprising vitamin E oil and aloe vera gel.

2. Treat Dry Skin

Because it’s such a thick oil, vitamin E is a fantastic natural moisturizer that’s especially suitable for people with dry skin.

If you find it too thick to use as an everyday lotion, you don’t have to forgo all the oil’s benefits on a daily basis. Simply mix it with your favorite moisturizer or blend it with some virgin coconut oil and apply as normal.

Then, once a week or so – especially during the winter months – apply undiluted vitamin E oil to dry patches for a healing treatment for itchy, rough, and tight skin.

3. Reduce Hyperpigmentation & Brown Spots

Hyperpigmentation is a condition that causes patches of skin to become darker than the surrounding skin. It’s usually harmless, but many people wish to treat it for cosmetic reasons.

Fortunately, both hyperpigmentation and brown spots caused by aging and sun exposure respond well to vitamin E treatment. And, because the vitamin reverses free radical damage and encourages the regeneration of skin cells, it’s particularly beneficial for brown spots caused by sunlight.

If hyperpigmentation is getting you down, try mixing two teaspoons of extra-virgin olive oil with one teaspoon of vitamin E oil and applying it to the affected areas. Repeat this treatment before bed each night and wash off in the morning.

4. Hydrate Dry Hands

Our long-suffering hands are exposed to all sorts of harsh conditions – from scalding hot water and chemical soaps to winter wind and summer sun.

Give your hands some much-needed TLC with a vitamin E oil treatment. It will nourish and hydrate your hands while protecting them from future neglect.

Use vitamin E oil directly on the skin, or mix up a moisturizing hand treatment comprising two teaspoons of vitamin E oil, two tablespoons of virgin coconut oil, a tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil, and a tablespoon of aloe vera gel. You can also add a few drops of lavender essential oil, which is soothing, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory.

5. Brighten The Skin

Vitamin E naturally brightens the skin thanks to its ability to encourage the renewal and regeneration of cells. And, if you combine it with lemon juice – a natural skin-bleaching agent – you may further speed up the process.

So, if you’re tired of dull and lifeless-looking skin, try mixing two teaspoons of vitamin E oil with a tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Apply it to the face and body (avoiding the delicate areas around the mouth and eyes) and leave on for ten minutes before rinsing off with lukewarm water. Repeat twice a week until your skin is bright and glowing.

If your skin is very dehydrated, we recommend skipping this treatment as lemon juice can be drying. Instead, mix the vitamin E oil with two tablespoons of aloe vera gel and two tablespoons of rose water. Apply this mix to the skin for twenty minutes before rinsing off. Repeat twice weekly.
