The benefits of vitamin E for the skin

Known for its benefits on the immune system, its anti-cancer and anti-cardiovascular disease effects, vitamin E, also called "beauty vitamin", lives up to its name since it has many beneficial properties for the skin. In today's article, we invite you to discover some benefits of vitamin E for the skin.

Vitamin E: a powerful anti-aging agent for the skin

Present in certain vegetable oils (sunflower oil, nuts, wheat germ etc.), avocado, butter, sardines etc. Vitamin E is known for its richness in antioxidants. This property allows it to neutralize free radicals in our body, molecules responsible for premature skin aging.

In addition to its antioxidant properties, vitamin E also contributes to the production of collagen, thus preserving the elasticity and suppleness of your skin.

By providing enough vitamin E to your body, you prevent premature signs of aging like wrinkles and keep your skin smooth and firm.

Vitamin E hydrates your skin

Vitamin E oil is the ideal moisturizer for dry skin because it is very oily. It is also commonly used in moisturizing creams.

Vitamin E also improves the skin's barrier function, which helps reduce water loss and keeps your skin hydrated. By carefully hydrating your skin, you significantly limit the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

In addition, vitamin E also helps protect your skin against UV rays which are partly responsible for the appearance of wrinkles and brown spots.

Vitamin E protects and regenerates your skin

The antioxidants present in vitamin E help regenerate your skin and protect it from infections. It therefore strengthens healing and reduces scars.

Its moisturizing and regenerating properties also help combat dermatological problems like eczema and dermatitis, as well as relieve itchy skin.

For acne-prone skin, vitamin E reduces the risk of scarring and soothes your skin.

Reduce your dark circles with vitamin E

The dark color of dark circles is partly due to poor blood circulation in the thin skin below the eyes.

Thanks to its moisturizing properties, vitamin E improves blood circulation in this part of your face and therefore reduces your dark circles.

You can then either apply vitamin E under your eyes in the form of a cream or take it in the form of a food supplement.

What are the recommended doses of vitamin E and where can you find it?

Vitamin E is an essential element for your body. A minimum intake of 15 mg per day is also recommended for an adult.

It is mainly contained in fatty foods such as vegetable oils, nuts, avocado, fish etc.
