7 Ways To Apply Vitamin E Capsules For Glowing Skin

Nowadays, vitamin E is used in pretty much every other skincare product — from sunscreens to anti-aging serums to moisturizers — and nothing boasts vitamin E’s amazing properties. And that is because Vitamin E works like magic for your skin. It is a nutritious element as well as a powerful antioxidant that fights free radicals, thus preventing cellular damage that can accelerate the aging process.

Vitamin E also helps to fade scars quickly, be it acne scars, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or age spots. With such amazing benefits, Vitamin E can make your skin clear, healthy and smooth and keep it looking young. Vitamin E exists in eight chemical forms (alpha-, beta-, gamma-, and delta-tocopherols and alpha-, beta-, gamma- and delta-tocotrienols).

Tocopherol is the only form we should be using. Vitamin E oil is available in capsule form at any chemist’s shop. We can puncture these Vitamin E capsules to release the oil for topical application. Look for ‘tocopherol’ on the label when buying vitamin E capsules. To get the most out of vitamin E oil for your skin and hair, apply it at night before sleeping.

Benefits of Vitamin E on the skin:

1. Rich in antioxidants that fight free radicals, allowing damaged cells to heal and repair them.
2. Works to repair damaged tissues and improve their appearance.
3. Removes acne scars and dark spots.
4. Moisturizes and hydrates the skin.
5. Promotes the production of collagen which is a protein that helps in maintaining the elasticity of the skin.
6. Minimizes fine lines and wrinkles, reverses signs of aging for brighter and younger looking skin.

1. Vitamin E Skin Serum: Open a vitamin E capsule and squeeze the liquid onto your clean palms. Apply a little on your face and leave it on overnight.

Take care not to use too much, as it is very sticky and oily and your face will get oily and your pillow will be completely oily! Now, you clearly don’t want that. So, my advice is to use it sparingly. Use vitamin E oil to reduce and improve facial wrinkles. Punch a few vitamin E capsules daily and gently rub the oil around your eyes, forehead and mouth to hydrate your skin and reduce wrinkles on your face.

2. Vitamin E Skin Cream: Add a Vitamin E capsule to your night cream, and whip up the entire mixture and voila! Your own vitamin E rich skin cream is ready. It’s actually more practical, and less messy as well as time consuming than using a concentrated serum, as you only have to do it once and no further worries. Also, you can add it to your body lotion to make a body lotion rich in Vitamin E.

3. Vitamin E Elbow, Knee and Cuticle Softener: Apply a concentrated dose of vitamin E to your elbows and knees after exfoliating and rub in the oil. It will keep dry, flaky skin at bay, while also healing rough patches. Apply the remainder around your cuticles to pamper them as well.

4. Acne and Scar Treatment: Due to its antioxidant properties, Vitamin E when applied topically helps treat acne, as well as fade away those scars and ugly pimple marks. As an added benefit, helps treat wrinkles as it speeds up cell regeneration. Punch a hole in your vitamin E capsule and rub vitamin E oil on your scars daily.

5. Treat a sunburn or give your skin a break from the heat. If you’ve been in the hot sun for a long time, soothe your skin with vitamin E oil. Break 2-3 vitamin E capsules into the oil, and mix the oil with yogurt and lemon juice and apply it to your skin. Apply this mixture all over your face, let it dry and then wash off. It will soothe your burnt skin and provide relief.
