Monsoon season is here in all its glory, meaning that your skin is susceptible to breakouts and dullness due to humidity. To manage this situation, a skin serum made of natural ingredients could do the trick. Especially a homemade serum based on vitamin E.
While there are various over the counter products available, you could always make your own vitamin e serum from the comfort of your home. This serum can help you achieve glowing skin, free of oil, and clogged pores.
It is an effective stimulant for collagen production, that repairs fine lines and wrinkles, and inhibits melanin formation. Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant and helps protect against free radical damage caused by UV rays, pollution, and natural ageing. It helps nourish the skin, moisturise it, aid skin repair, and protects it from breakouts.
Vitamin E can help soften dark spots, and brighten the skin tone. Its anti-inflammatory properties can help reduce the appearance of under-eye circles, and redness due to infections.
This nutrient-rich serum acts as a luminosity booster for the skin and is a must-have as part of your skincare toolkit.
