Why Vitamin E Should Be Your Best Friend

Our mothers have always told us that we should apply vitamin E on everything from scars to insect bites. It turns out we should have listened to them.

Vitamin E is generally considered an all-round superstar and is famed for its antioxidant properties.  As an antioxidant, vitamin E prevents cells from oxidizing and repairs already damaged cells. But that’s not all vitamin E can do. Its many uses make it a popular skincare ingredient. Vitamin E protects against ultraviolet damage and increases the efficacy of sunscreens, reduces inflammation, maintains skin’s hydration levels, protects and balances the skin’s natural oil levels, and reduces sunburn. With so many benefits, it’s easy to see why using vitamin E is a no-brainer. The only real question is which vitamin E product to use. We’ve managed to narrow down a few of our favorite vitamin E products below.

SkinMedica Dermal Repair Cream – This luxurious cream combines Vitamin E’s healing and moisturizing properties with vitamin A, hyaluronic acid, essential fatty acids, and vitamin C repair, replenish, hydrate, and soften the skin in one go.

Derma e Vitalizing Moisturizer SPF 15 with Tamanu and Pomegranate – Remember how we said that vitamin E can increase the efficacy of your sunscreen? This light-weight, daily moisturizer utilizes those very properties to keep your skin ultra-protected and hydrated.
