Who knew one little vitamin could be so darn nifty?

Vitamin E is a fat soluble vitamin with serious skin benefits, check out our top five fave reasons to get more vitamin E into your clients’ lives.

1. Hello, antioxidants

Vitamin E has potent antioxidant superpowers when it comes to your skin. Known for their ability to clean up nasty free radical that wreak havoc on our skin causing it to age prematurely, antioxidants should be an essential component of every good skincare regime.

2. Photoprotection

Vitamin E is seriously clever when it comes to the sun. This nifty little vitamin can actually absorb energy from damaging UV rays, helping to protect the skin from photodamage. (Though it’s not a reason to stop slip, slop, slapping altogether.)

3. Bye, bye, inflammation

Vitamin E has anti-inflammatory properties, making it ideal for calming the fires of skin conditions like rosacea and eczema. Applied topically, it can even reduce inflammation-related swelling. Nifty, huh?

4. Healing

Vitamin E is one seriously healing vitamin, so much so, that in lab studies, rats who were deficient in vitamin E were found to suffer from greater incidences of skin lesions which took prolonged periods to go away.

5. Nourished skin

Vitamin E is one of the most nourishing vitamins there is when it comes to the skin. Even a moderate amount of the vitamin has been shown to improve moisture and elasticity levels in the skin, so it’s an extremely critical nutrient to consider in any anti-ageing routine.
