How Vitamin E in Face Oil Can Improve Your Skin's Health
Hey there, beautiful people! You already know that face oil is an essential part of your daily skincare routine. But did you know that some of the best face oils contain Vitamin E? That’s right, this powerhouse antioxidant has a wealth of benefits for your skin, making it a must-have ingredient in your skincare arsenal.
What is Vitamin E? What does Vitamin E do?
Today, we're talking about Vitamin E and how it can work wonders for your skin. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps protect your skin against damage caused by free radicals - the bad guys of the skincare world. Think of free radicals as wedding crashers who show up uninvited to a party and start wreaking havoc. They're unstable molecules that can damage your skin cells and lead to premature aging, wrinkles, and dullness. But don't worry, because Vitamin E is here to save the day!
Free Radicals are created naturally during metabolic processes in the body, and can also be generated by exposure to external sources such as pollution, cigarette smoke, and radiation. Free radicals can cause damage to cellular structures such as proteins and lipids, leading to cell dysfunction, inflammation, and even cell death which as you may have guessed is bad for your skin. To combat the damaging effects of free radicals, the body relies on antioxidants (like Vitamin E), which can neutralize these unstable molecules and prevent them from causing harm.
Vitamin E works by neutralizing free radicals, thereby preventing them from causing damage to your skin's DNA and other vital components.
Why Vitamin E is good for skin?
One of the most significant benefits of Vitamin E is its ability to moisturize your skin. As a natural humectant, it helps your skin retain moisture, keeping it soft and supple. Vitamin E also helps strengthen your skin's natural barrier, which is critical for preventing water loss and protecting your skin from environmental stressors like pollution and UV radiation.
But that's not all! Vitamin E also has anti-inflammatory properties, making it an excellent ingredient for soothing and calming irritated skin. It can also help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by supporting collagen production, which keeps your skin looking firm and youthful.
How to use Vitamin E Facial Oil?
Look for face oils that contain Vitamin E as a key ingredient, it is actually the only ingredient that is in all of our custom face oils - the amount depends on your personal needs. Use your face oil with Vitamin E in the morning and at night to provide optimal protection and hydration. It should be the last thing you put on at night and second to last step in the morning (right before sunscreen).
What is Vitamin E good for?
Well, it's great for reducing inflammation, improving skin texture, and boosting collagen production. Collagen is like the scaffolding that holds up your skin, and as we age, our bodies produce less of it. That's where Vitamin E comes in - it helps keep your skin looking plump and youthful. Plus, it can also protect your skin from UV damage, which is like the supervillain of the skincare world. UV rays can cause all sorts of problems, from sunburn to skin cancer, so it's important to protect yourself with some good old-fashioned Vitamin E.
The Science - Vitamin E has been found to protect skin from the adverse effects of oxidative stress including photoaging, which is when the sun ages our skin causing fine lines and wrinkles.
How much Vitamin E per day?
The recommended daily intake is about 15 milligrams of Vitamin E per day for adults, but don't worry too much about counting every last milligram. Just focus on eating a healthy, balanced diet and using skincare products that contain Vitamin E.
How much Vitamin E is too much?
Well, like with any good thing, there can be too much of a good thing. It's best to stick to the recommended dosage in skin care products and not overdo it with supplements. Too much Vitamin E can actually be harmful, leading to nausea, diarrhea, and other not-so-fun side effects. So, as always, moderation is key - don’t go over the recommended 15 milligrams.
For face oil, it is best to use 1 drop of Vitamin E for every 10 drops of carrier oils that are best suited for your skin type and goals.
So there you have it, folks - Vitamin E is a skincare superhero that can help protect your skin from the bad guys, boost collagen production, and keep you looking young and fresh. We love it so much, it is the only constant in all our Custom Face Oils.
