Vitamin E: Nourishing Dry Skin Care

By Jerrick Foo

Among all the nutrients, vitamin E is one of the most important for ensuring that your skin is healthy. It can be added to the diet by eating more seeds and nuts, healthful oils, and certain vegetables, like bean sprouts and sweet potatoes. It helps protect against heart problems, keeping the arteries clear. In skin care, though, it's helpful to apply the vitamin right at the site of the dry skin as well as adding it to the diet. This can be done in a variety of ways. You can find vitamin E skin care creams even in the dollar aisle of the store. The thing to remember about the less expensive products is that they probably do not contain the strength of vitamin E you need. They probably also are made of cheap synthetic ingredients instead of high quality organic oils and other healing components.

Vitamin E for Skin Around Eyes:

The skin around your eyes often needs moisturizing. This is because the area under the eyes does not have glands for secreting oil. Vitamin E is a wonderful ingredient in any eye cream as it restores and nourishes the delicate skin around the eyes. Using an eye cream or oil that contains vitamin E can help fight the tiny wrinkles that so often appear in this sensitive spot. It does this by stablizing and firming the cell membranes of your skin. You may need to use a vitamin E product for awhile before you see the desired results. In fact, it may take months. In addition, the cream may contain other ingredients that cause your skin to break out. If your skin seems to be sensitive to a product, discontinue its use and find another that is gentler.

What are Antioxidants?

Vitamin E is an anti-oxidant, which means it neurtalizes the destructive free radicals. It also protects skin from damage caused by environmental pollution. Talk of free radicals and anti-oxidants can seem confusing. The main thing to remember is that antioxidants protect skin and other parts of our body. They protect us from the effects of the air pollution that is so widespread in our cities. The damage from free radicals doesn't just happen to our skin. It happens throughout our bodies. This is why it's so important to get enough vitamin E in the diet.

The Importance of the Skin:

People don't think of the skin as an organ like the heart or lungs. It is, though, and it's one of the largest and most important. It protects the body from all the damaging forces on the outside, such as dirt, bacteria, and ultraviolet light. This makes the skin a vital part of the body. It is crucial to take the best care of it that we can. Vitamin E prevents scars from forming and stops infections. It promotes fast healing.

What are Tocopherols?

There are different types of vitamin E, which are called "tocopherols." Some feel the best natural form of vitamin E is called D-alpha-tocopherol. Others feel that since the different tocopherols each have their own strengths, it makes sense to use many of the tocopherols at once. A product that has the different forms of vitamin E combined is said to have "mixed tocopherols."

Types of Products Available:

Vitamin E skin products come in many forms. One innovative product is a stick similar to a lipstick. It's vitamin E rich formula can be applied directly to the skin around the eyes or to the lips for serious healing and moisturizing of dry skin. Vitamin E for the skin is also found combined with oils and natural butters of all types. Sometimes it is added to tea tree oil. As a word of caution, tea tree oil is healing in cases of fungus or other infections, but it is harsh and drying. It should be used sparingly if at all by those who have dry skin. Vitamin E can also be found in a wide variety of skin lotions and creams. For best results, look for a vitamin E product that includes other helpful ingredients, such as vitamin A, B-complex, and C.

Vitamin E is one of the most vital healing agents for dry skin. It has been proven over the years to be able to keep moisture in the skin. It is found in many natural vegetable oils. It's easy to use, however, straight from a capsule. To apply vitamin E oil directly to irritated skin, just puncture a hole in a vitamin E capsule. This is a great way to get vitamin E directly to a sore spot, such as an insect bite or other extremely itchy spot.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
