Vitamin e oil is both a nutrient and an antioxidant. It can be used to make our skin smooth and hydrated. It’s a powerful fat-soluble antioxidant that can rejuvenate our skin. Vitamin E oil blocks free radicals from the body, which play a large part in the ageing process. Vitamin E exists in eight chemical forms (alpha-, beta-, gamma-, and delta- tocopherol and alpha-, beta-, gamma-, and delta –tocotrienol). Tocopherol is the only form that we are supposed to use. Vitamin e oil can be found at any chemist shop in the form of capsules. We can puncture these vitamin e capsules to release the oil for topical application. While purchasing vitamin e capsules look for ‘tocopherol’ on the label. To get the most out of vitamin e oil for your skin and hair, apply it at night before bedtime. Let me show you 8 simple ways in which you can use vitamin E capsules in your skin and hair beautification!
8 Ways To Use Vitamin E Capsules
1. Vitamin E Skin Serum:
Pop open a vitamin E capsule and squeeze out the liquid onto your clean palms. Dab only a little on your face and keep it on for the entire night. Take care not to use too much, as it is very sticky and oily and you will end up with an oily face and your pillow would be all oily! Now, you obviously don’t want that. So, my advice is to use it very sparingly.
Use vitamin e oil to reduce and improve facial wrinkles. Puncture some vitamin e capsules daily and rub the oil gently around your eyes, forehead, and mouth to hydrate your skin and reduce wrinkles on your face.
2. Vitamin E Hair Serum:
Now, this technique is very effective. Pop open 2 to 3 vitamin E capsules depending on your hair length. Smooth out this liquid onto your hair lengths, also for extra nourishment, you could apply it your scalp too. But, again, be cautious, its sticky, so your hair would get very sticky (unlike the commercial serums, which disappear into your hair). After keeping it on for half an hour to an hour, wash your hair and condition.
3. Vitamin E Supplement:
This is probably the most effective of all. Gulp down one capsule of vitamin E every day for fifteen days, and be amazed at the difference it does to your skin and hair. I do this, and trust me, it helps, a lot!
4. Vitamin E Skin Cream:
Add a vitamin E capsule to your night cream, and whip up the whole mixture, and voila! Your very own vitamin E enriched skin cream is ready. This is in fact more practical, and less messy as well as time consuming than using the concentrated serum, as you have to do this only a single time and no further worries. Also, you could add this to your body lotions to make vitamin E enriched body lotions.
5. Vitamin E Elbow, Knee, and Cuticle Softener:
Apply a concentrated dose of vitamin E to your elbows and knees after exfoliating them, and rub in the oil. This will keep dry, flaky skin at bay, while also healing rough patches. Apply the remaining around your cuticles to pamper them too.
6. To Treat Chapped Lips:
Open a vitamin E capsule and apply to your chapped lips. Alternatively, you could even add it your DIY lip balms or your store-bought lip balm jars to add some vitamin E for goodness and benefit!
7. Acne and Scar Treatment:
Owing to its antioxidant properties, Vitamin E when applied topically helps in treating acne, as well as fading away those scars and ugly pimple marks. As an added benefit, helps in treating wrinkles as it speeds up cell regeneration. Poke holes in your vitamin e capsules and rub vitamin e oil daily on your scars.
8. Treat Sunburn or Soothe Your Skin From the Heat
If you have stayed for long in the hot sun, soothe your skin with vitamin e oil. Break 2-3 vitamin e capsules for the oil, and mix the oil with yogurt and lemon juice to apply on your skin. Apply the mixture all over your face, let it dry, and then wash it off. It will soothe your burned skin and provide relief.
Did you know that a recent study by US Scientists at Ohio State University has found out that when quitting smoking, taking vitamin E capsules help. Apparently, vitamin E capsules taken in the correct quantity, help in improving the blood vessel function which thereby help in bringing an ex smoker’s risk of getting a cardiovascular disease to a non smoker’s risk level. So, all you smokers out there, all the more reason to pop some vitamin E capsules!
All the best!
