WHAT IS VITAMIN E?

Vitamin E – or as we like to call it, The Underrated Vitamin – is a nutrient that helps keep your skin feeling fresh and healthy. As it’s also an antioxidant, it helps protect your skin from everyday stressors, like pollution. We mostly absorb vitamin E in the foods we eat but, because of the benefits we can get from putting it onto our skin, it’s now used in a number of skincare products. Discover these benefits below.

THE BENEFITS OF VITAMIN E FOR SKIN

HELPS PROTECT FROM FREE RADICALS

Vitamin E is an antioxidant. And antioxidants are known to help protect your skin from free radicals. Free radicals are molecules in the air that cause damage to our skin, like weakening its elasticity. And, because free radicals are all around us, they’re pretty hard to avoid. But we can prevent them from affecting us. Vitamin E helps to protect our skin cells from environmental stressors and help keep our skin feeling fresh and healthy, even in the city.

HELPS MOISTURIZE THE SKIN

Though it’s championed for its antioxidant properties, vitamin E also has moisturizing benefits and can help keep your skin feel hydrated for longer. Vitamin E forms a protective barrier around your skin cells which prevents moisture loss and keeps your skin looking healthy and hydrated.

HELPS RESTORE THE SKIN

Vitamin E helps to restore skin’s moisture. It works by locking in that much-needed replenishment, helping to avoid moisture loss and, in turn, helping to protect from external aggressors. As a fat-soluble vitamin, it also preserves the lipids (fats) in your face, leaving you with plumper looking skin.
