One of the most useful products you can keep in your medicine cabinet in vitamin E oil, either in liquid form or capsules. Not only is it beneficial to take internally as part of your vitamin regimen, but there is a variety of topical uses as well. Here are just a few suggestions to get you started:
Applied topically, vitamin E oil can help stimulate cell regeneration and new cell growth. In turn, this can reduce the signs of aging in the skin including fine lines, wrinkles, and even hyperpigmentation such as brown spots.
Vitamin E oil can serve as an intensive moisturizing treatment for dry and cracked cuticles. Not to mention it can help strengthen and nourish the nails themselves.
Rough or Flaky Skin
Because of its thick consistency, it does not make a good daily moisturizer, but if you are struggling with an area of uneven and rough texture, dab a little on at night to let it fully soak in while you sleep. The anti-inflammatory properties help too.
If you can handle the texture of the oil, it makes an amazing dry lip treatment. It is especially effective if your lips aren’t damaged enough to use a lip scrub first. But if your lips are already extremely dry or sensitive, it might be better to skip the scrub.
While prevention is always best, sometimes the sun can sneak up on us. Not only can it soothe the heat of the sunburn, it can also reduce the inflammation and swelling that usually accompanies the burn.
These are only a few of the uses of vitamin E oil, but it is an excellent idea to keep some around just in case!
