Just a heads-up, vitamin E Oil may become your new best friend after reading this. What's so great about vitamin E oil? Found naturally in our favourite plants and veggies like avocados, sunflowers, and mangos – vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that helps keep dry skin healthy, happy, and deeply moisturized. What does the "E" stand for? Let's find out...
Though the “E” in vitamin E refers to a group of eight fat-soluble compounds (that’s just a smart way of saying there are different forms of the vitamin) – we think it should stand for “everyone” because our vitamin E Oil is perfect for all skin types!
Skin Care Benefits
It's not a magic potion, but it certainly has its benefits. Vitamin E oil can fight against free radicals and protects your skin from damage. It adds to your glow and makes your skin smooth and healthy. The oil is also known to reduce hyperpigmentation and wrinkles, besides maintaining overall skin health.
Put it to good use...
Step 1: Wash your face and gently pat dry. Cleansing is always the first and most vital step of your skincare regimen.
Step 2: Take a hot/warm towel and wrap it around your face for 2-3 minutes. This will allow your pores to open up and soak in the oil better.
Step 3: In case of sensitive skin, try mixing the vitamin E oil with a carrier oil like coconut oil.
Step 4: Take a pea-sized amount of the oil. Gently rub the oil into your skin with your fingertips. Don’t be too harsh on your skin.
Step 5: If you have dry skin, you can leave the oil on overnight. If you’re prone to breakouts or have sensitive skin, wash it off after 15 minutes.
Safety Tip: Conduct a small patch test 24 hours before the actual application of the oil. If you do not see any kind of skin irritation or allergic reaction, feel free to apply as directed.
