In beauty, there’s a new novelty ingredient pushed to the forefront of the industry practically every single day, with each new formula lauded better and more innovative than the last. While it’s exciting about trying something new, there’s something to be said about sticking with an old favourite.
Vitamin E, which has stood the test of time, remains a popular ingredient among skincare lovers. So what exactly does vitamin E offer for your skin? Keep scrolling to find out.
1. Keeps skin moist:
Vitamin E is found in many moisturisers. The compound allows long-lasting moisture retention between your skin cells for up to 16 hours. In addition, vitamin E helps protect your skin’s lipid barrier, which can help seal up little cracks created in the skin's barrier that can cause moisture to escape and leave the skin feeling tight and dry.
2. Prevents fine lines and wrinkles:
Dry skin tends to look more wrinkled than well-moisturised skin. The moisturising benefits of vitamin E may help the skin look more youthful and less wrinkled.
Additionally, Vitamin E is an antioxidant, in which they prevent oxidative damage to cells by helping to remove free radicals (the bad guys). Free radicals usually arise from daily environmental stressors like unprotected sun exposure and air pollution. In fighting off free radicals, vitamin E helps protect the skin from damage, and even signs of ageing.
3. Heals skin:
Many scientific researches suggest that vitamin E, when applied to the skin, can treat scars, or prevent them from forming in the first place. Some study also states that vitamin E has the capacity to accelerate healing of wounds.
4. Protects from sunburn:
Besides its moisturising and healing functions, vitamin E also offers our skin protection from the sun. Specifically, when vitamin E is combined with vitamin C and used under sunscreen, it can provide four times the protection of sunscreen alone.
5. Soothes skin:
Formulas containing vitamin E provide conditioning to environmentally exposed skin. The ingredient works to smooth your skin and make it feel comfortable after irritation from sun damage and pollution.
