Why vitamin E?
A lot of people know that vitamin E is great for the skin but not everyone knows why. They simply believe what ads say and what skincare products claim.
Now, is that a bad thing?
Well, not really since vitamin E is indeed great for the skin. However, knowing what an ingredient or a product can do for your skin is essential if you want to make the most out of it.
It’s also something you have to do if you have really sensitive skin.
Let’s get back to vitamin E.
This vitamin makes a really great moisturizer since it’s able to prevent water loss. And by increasing the natural moisture of the skin, it can also decrease the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of skin aging.
Vitamin E can protect your skin from free radical damage. It can make your skin cells prone not just to premature skin aging but skin cancer, too.
And you know what else?
Vitamin E also has the ability to reduce the negative effects of UV rays. When applied topically, it can reduce redness and skin damage caused by UV-B rays.
This, however, doesn’t mean that this vitamin can work as a substitute for your sunscreen.
