There are a few big-name vitamins worth incorporating into your skincare regimen, and vitamin E is right up there at the top of the list. Vitamin E is a multi-tasking hero that nourishes your skin keeping you looking vibrant and healthy.
What is Vitamin E?
Long story short, vitamin E is a fat-soluble antioxidant. Did you know there are eight different types of vitamin E? The Vitamin E typically used in skincare are tocopherol and tocopheryl acetate which work as antioxidants.
In high enough concentrations, vitamin E can also help preserve the efficacy of your products so you can reap their maximum benefits. Talk about a true hero.
What's the Big Deal with Antioxidants, Anyway?
To better understand all these vitamin E benefits, it's important to understand what antioxidants can do for your skin. Basically, they help prevent oxidation (hence the name anti-oxidant) that's caused by UV rays, pollutants, and our body's natural metabolic process. All of the above cause premature signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, dullness and skin laxity.
Vitamin E in Skincare
In addition to its antioxidant powers, vitamin E in skincare can be extremely beneficial. Vitamin E can help give your skin a radiant and smoother look.
