1. It nourishes and moisturizes skin
Vitamin E oil deeply nourishes and moisturizes your skin making it look healthier and super hydrated.
2. Reverses anti-ageing
Continuous use of Vitamin E oil leads to a younger looking skin by rejuvenating it from the inside. Treating those wrinkles, hyper pigmentation, and dull and loose skin has never been easier than this.
3. Treats dark circles
Regular application of Vitamin E oil helps in reducing your dark circles and puffiness under your eyes to a great extent.
4. Longer eyelashes
It’s like we said, Vitamin E oil works its magic for even the tiniest aspects of your beauty.
5. Treats sunburns & skin damage
The damage that your skin faces because of pollution, harmful UV radiations, or even stress for that matter can be treated by repeated use of Vitamin E oil as it rids your skin of the free radicals and neutralizes their effects.
6. Reduces stretch marks & lighten scars
Vitamin E oil helps in regenerating new skin cells and subsequently lightens all kinds of scars, spots, and marks.
7. Promotes hair growth
Since, Vitamin E is an antioxidant, it helps in repairing the hair follicles by improving the blood circulation and making new hair grow faster and healthier.
8. Slows down hair ageing
Not just skin but, Vitamin E also helps in slowing down your hair ageing process by making them less brittle and preventing them from premature graying.
9. Healthy nails
Vitamin E oil also treats your yellow chapped nails and dry nail beds and cuticles. Just like your skin, it nourishes them from deep within making them look healthier.
Ways To Use Vitamin E Oil
1. Vitamin E rich foods or supplements
First things first, make sure to include Vitamin E rich foods in your diet like Avocados, Spinach, Fish, Almonds, Sunflower Seeds, Olives, Broccoli, and Peanuts. You can also take some Vitamin E supplements but, prescribed by your doctor.
2. Vitamin E oil capsules
Easily available at any drugstore around you, sourcing these capsules and using their oil is the best way to go about this. All you gotta do is cut or prick the capsule and extract all the oil carefully that’s inside.
3. Apply directly
One of the common ways of using Vitamin E oil is by applying it directly on your skin or the affected areas like under eyes, marks & scars, nails, or burns. Massage it well and leave it on for about 15 minutes and then rinse off with lukewarm water. Before applying, make sure your skin is clean and dry.
4. Mix it with moisturizer or body lotion for your skin
Yet another way of using Vitamin E oil on your face or body is by mixing a few drops of it in your regular moisturizer and then applying that onto your skin.
Tip: Always use circular hand motions while massaging.
5. Mix it with Aloe Vera gel
Aloe Vera gel helps in regenerating skin tissue and fastens the healing process. This makes it an effective carrier to mix in your Vitamin E oil with applying onto your skin or hair.
6. Mix it with a carrier oil for hair
Be it coconut oil, castor oil, olive oil or almond oil, before applying any of your regular oil onto your hair mix a few drops Vitamin E oil with it (preferably 1-2 capsules). Apply this mix well on your roots and then throughout your hair.
7. For eyelashes
Mix castor oil with Vitamin E oil and apply it onto your lashes with a Q-tip or a clean mascara wand every night before going to bed. Wash it in the morning and repeat this procedure at least thrice a week.
8. Hydrating face mask
Make up a simple hydrating face mask by mixing honey with a few drops of Vitamin E oil. Apply it onto your face and leave it for 10 minutes. Rinse it off later with water.
9. Egg white hair mask
Take 1-2 egg whites (depending upon your hair) in a bowl. Add 2-4 spoons of olive oil accordingly and a few drops of Vitamin E oil. Mix it well and apply it on your hair. Leave it for about 30 minutes and then shampoo it normally. Do this once every week for softer, shinier, and healthier hair.
