Vitamin is one among the important nutrient. There are 13 vitamins and each has their unique benefits. Lack of these vitamins leads to deficiency. The largest organ in our body is skin and we are very cautious and protective about it. Vitamin E plays a role in getting a glowing skin apart from vitamins A and C.

Who doesn't wish for a glowing skin. We all love to have a beautiful skin. We start caring about our skin from our teenage. Those are the days when we start to develop our greatest enemy, the Acne.

I still remember those days when I get a pimple... God, those would be the worst days of my life. I feel inferior and I will be standing to before the mirror trying all sorts of things that I could do to get rid of it. I have tried all those stuff from internet and friend's advice until that pimple goes . Then the next enemy, those marks, and scars left by acne. 

So, with my experience, I have listed some benefits of Vitamin E to get a clear skin.

Vitamin E oil is also got in the form of tablets, capsules, soft gels, and oils. These capsules are got in pharmacy. Now, we will see how to use this vitamin E oil for a clear skin.

Coming to the Benefits of Vitamin E oil and how to use them:

These antioxidants help in repairing the damaged skin cells, restoring the radiance and youthfulness of the skin. It also makes your skin blemish-free.

It lightens the scar caused by acne or minor burns:

Vitamin E helps in treating acne and scars left by acne. A study on Dermatology has found that people with low level of vitamin E are prone to severe acne.

Vitamin E can be taken in the form of food we eat like green leafy vegetables, nuts, seafood, and fruits or can be applied on the damaged tissue of the skin in the form of vitamin E oil or serum. 

Vitamin E has the anti-inflammatory property that helps in skin regeneration.
  • Apply few drops of vitamin E oil on the scar left by acne or minor burns and massage in a circular motion. The oil will penetrate deep into the skin and repair the damaged tissues, leaving it scar-free. It is the best treatment for removal of scars. 
  • Apply vitamin E oil gently on the burnt area using a cotton ball. Make sure that the burn has cooled down before you apply the oil. Repeat it for few days until healed.

It acts as a moisturizer :

Vitamin E is an oil-soluble nutrient that restores and rejuvenates the parched and dehydrated skin.

  • Vitamin E oil cannot be used as a moisturizer as such, instead, it should be mixed with another moisturizer lotion or carrier oil like olive oil and can be applied on the body before going to bed at night. It restores the lost moisture. 
Vitamin E oil is a heavy humectant and can increase the chances of breakouts. So, if you have a normal or oily skin or a skin prone to breakout, you should seek a dermatologist's advice.
