Vitamin E is a nutrient our bodies need to support the immune system and help our cells to regenerate. It also has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that are essential to our everyday health. With a new season ahead, I thought it would be helpful to share some of the benefits of adding vitamin E to your skin health regimen. I especially find it to be helpful during the winter season, Consider incorporating Vitamin E into your current self-care routine. Here are some benefits:
Vitamin E is most commonly known for its benefits to skin health and appearance. At a very young age, my mom introduced me to her Vitamin E skincare bedtime routine. After cleansing my skin, she would share a small portion of her moisturizer along with a drop of Vitamin E. I would gently mix them together and apply them to my face and neck. It was only fun bonding time, but also I learned how to take care of my skin.
Vitamin E can help reverse the signs of aging and wrinkles while keeping the skin soft, smooth, and supple. When applied to your face two or three times a week, it can reduce inflammation and make your skin look younger.
RELIVES CHAPPED DRY CUTICLES AND LIPS
Keep your lips and cuticles moisturized every day. I recommend you keep Vitamin E capsules on hand. When needed, puncture one and apply the oil to your lips and cuticles.
Food high in Vitamin E includes sunflower seeds, almonds, peanuts, swiss chard, beet greens, spinach, avocados, butternut squash, kiwifruit, trout, shrimp, olive oil, wheat germ oil, and broccoli. Enhance your beauty by adding several to your next shopping list!
