While popping a vitamin E pill can have tremendous benefits when ingested such as improving cell function and boosting immunity, applying it topically on to the skin speeds up the positive gains channeled towards skin health.. Primarily, hydrating and neutralizing free radicals in an instantaneous manner..

Vitamin E And Skin Type..
The above said, if you’re going to apply the vitamin E directly to the skin on your face, you need to pay attention to your skin type.. Since vitamin E is oil-soluble, it can be lusciously hydrating (a blessing during the doldrums of winter), but because it is a heavier oil, it’s only recommended to those with dry skin. If you have oily skin or are acne prone, avoiding the use of vitamin E is better, since it may cause new or worsen existing breakouts..
How to use your Vitamin E at home capsules..? This mask is recommended and works wonders for very dry winter skin.
All you need is 1 capsule of vitamin E, 2 tbsp. of yogurt and 1 tsp. honey.. Mix all the ingredients together, and then apply it to face. Leave the mask on for 20 minutes before rinsing well. Follow up with your regular moisturizer and you’re plump and good to go..
One thing to keep in mind is vitamin E’s viscosity, its very thick nature calls for the act of warming after spreading.. Doing so will better the absorptions and benefits from the vitamin.. Personally I tend to mix it with some aloe vera gel and enjoy both the smell and the blissful effect!
