4 reasons you need to vitalise your skin with Vitamin E
Our skin does so much for us – our everyday front line defence for our bodies. The least we can do, what with all its hard work, is provide our skin with the best chance possible to perform its job to the best of its ability. One of the easiest and most effective ways we can do this is with Vitamin E.
Vitamin E: Antioxidant
Antioxidants really are a key tool when it comes to building a super strong security for our bodies against environmental damage, and Vitamin E is up there with the best of them.
Oxidation (where a chemical changes when met with oxygen) causes ‘free radicals’ (unpaired oxygen molecules) which cause cell deterioration. These are a normal consequence of oxidation, however there are numerous environmental factors that can aggravate this process – pollution, UV radiation, smoke, for example.
Vitamin E, works hard by helping to slow down, remove and prevent this damage, making it an invaluable source of repair and protection for our cells against unruly outside environmental stress.
Vitamin E: Protector
Vitamin E has an organic affinity with our skin and is a real source of strength in helping maintain its natural barrier function.
One environmental influence that can cause great damage to our bodies, especially the skin, is UV radiation. Now Vitamin E can’t protect us from the sun in the same way sun screen can, however it can help reduce the cell damage from oxidation caused by sunlight.
So combined with a good quality UVA/UVB sun screen, Vitamin E acts as an excellent protector against sun damage – important not just for our skin, but for our overall health.
Vitamin E: Restorer
A healer – Vitamin E plays an important role in helping the regeneration of new skin cells. This restorative quality can reduce inflammation of the skin, help fade scars as well as stretch marks.
Not only does Vitamin E assist with cell renewal, it can also stimulate collagen production, which in turn can slow down and prevent the signs of aging.
Vitamin E: Moisturiser
Being oil soluble, Vitamin E is an exceptional moisturiser that truly nourishes skin from within. Improving hydration not only leaves us with that ‘healthy glow’ we’re all hankering after but skin is noticeably healthier and softer.
