Vitamin E … the warrior vitamin.

Lately I’ve been all about trying more holistic approaches on things. Nothing to crazy,
but trying things out for my skin. I recently shared the >> benefits of coconut oil <<… now how about Vitamin E.

vitamin e :  a fat-soluble vitamin that is essential for normal reproduction; an important antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals in the body.

I have been using Trader Joes VIT E oil for a few weeks & I personally think I see day-to-day differences. Between this & coco oil my skin is a lot more pimple free, smoother & scars seem to be fading. I think that having healthy skin is very important.  I don’t know much about make up, so having nice skin is something I am trying to take MORE pride in.

Here are some benefits of using the oil:

  • erase scaring
  • erase pregnancy stretch marks
  • treat a minor sunburn
  • great for wrinkles <– never to early to start taking care of them 😉

Benefits of vitamin E overall:

  • As an antioxidant with a powerful punch.. vitamin E helps prevent cancer, heart disease, strokes, cataracts and possibly some of the signs of aging <– slather it on your face : )
  • Vitamin E protects artery walls and keeps the “bad” low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol from being oxidized.
  •  Vitamin E protects cells and DNA from damage that can turn cancerous
  • Vitamin E can be beneficial to people with diabetes. It enhances the action of insulin and improves blood glucose metabolism by reducing oxidative stress.
  • Many women report that vitamin E helps reduce hot flashes and other symptoms of menopause.
