The world of beauty is always buzzing with new trends and launches, and while it may be tempting to buy that expensive serums or cream, there’s no substitute for natural remedies. And today, we are going to speak about vitamin E capsules, the ingredient that you MUST add to your skin and hair routine. To begin with, there’s a reason why vitamin E is so beneficial.

Dr Shikha Sahay, a certified dermatologist, tells HealthShots, “This vitamin is packed with antioxidants that help to combat damage and at the same time, prevents damage caused by free radicals. It also improves your skin tone. It also has other beauty benefits, and can also work well for your hair. Most people prefer using the capsule directly because this vitamin is available in its purest form.”

What are the benefits of vitamin E for skin and hair?

1. Makes your nails healthier:

You may have noticed your nails becoming pale and lifeless, due to the overuse of your hands. “We are constantly doing household chores and do not even realise that our nails get impacted. Sometimes, their colour fades, or they also chip. If you do not take good care, they can become brittle,” says Sahay.

Just squeeze out the oil from the vitamin E capsule and apply it to your nails. You will see a difference in no time!

2. Works well in a night cream:

You may think that your night cream is going to do wonders and replenish your skin, right? Well yes, if you add a dose of vitamin E to it, you surely can maximise hydration. All you need to do is add a few drops of freshly squeezed vitamin E oil and apply it all over your face. Put it at least 30 minutes before bedtime, so that your sheets and pillows do not get stained.
