All these months of staying indoors have given us the opportunity to understand our own body, listen to it, and take care of it. If there is one thing that has benefitted the most from the stay-at-home situation due to coronavirus, it is our skin.
Not only are we away shielded from pollution, but we also have the time to take good care of our skin.
One of the best things you can use to heal your skin is vitamin E. Vitamin E oil is both a nutrient and an antioxidant. It makes our skin smooth and keeps it hydrated. As a powerful fat-soluble antioxidant that can rejuvenate our skin, it blocks free radicals, which can be a major contributor to the ageing process, from harming the body.
Vitamin E capsules are readily available over-the-counter and can be used in multiple ways for your skincare.
Here are 5 ways you can use vitamin E for the benefit of your skin:
1. Vitamin E as a skin serum
Just puncture a vitamin E capsule and squeeze the liquid out of it onto your palms. Dab a little on your face, especially around your eyes, forehead, and mouth. Leave it on for the entire night. It’s a sticky and oily liquid, so make sure you don’t use too much of it.
If you are facing the early onset of wrinkles, then vitamin E oil will save you from that. Make this a daily habit for it hydrates your skin and reduces wrinkles on your face.
2. Vitamin E as a skin cream
Make your very own vitamin E skin cream by adding vitamin E capsule to your night cream. You can also add it to your body lotions and make them vitamin E-enriched lotions.
3. Vitamin E as a cuticle, knee, and elbow softener
Dry and flaky skin around these regions? Treat them with a concentrated dose of vitamin E. After exfoliating your knees and elbows, rub the oil on the affected areas. This will also heal the rough patches. You can apply the rest to your sensitive cuticles.
4. Vitamin E as a treatment for chapped lips
Vitamin E will put your chapped lips issue to rest. All you have to do is, take the liquid from a vitamin E capsule and apply it on your chapped lips. Alternatively, you can also add it to your lip balm jar and you would be good to go!
5. Vitamin E as a sunburn treatment
Does your skin feel irritated after staying out in the sun for long? Soothe it with vitamin E oil. Take some 2 to 3 vitamin E capsules, pop them open and mix with yogurt and lemon juice. Apply the mixture all over your face, let it dry, and then wash it off. The minute you wash it off, you will be able to experience the soothing effect it has on your skin.
Just a couple of drops of Vitamin E are powerful enough to treat all your skin troubles!
