Vitamin E helps to keep your skin's protective barrier intact. This seals up tiny cracks that allow moisture to escape on the surface of your skin. But its real star potential is in how it accelerates healing. Between a mix of antioxidants and hydration, it visibly reduces the appearance of burns, scarring, and irritation.
Vitamin E is naturally found in your skin but its levels deplete with age. For beauty products, vitamin E is usually produced synthetically but it's found in foods like avocado, pumpkin, and wheat germ as well. It's both high in antioxidants itself, and boosts the power of other antioxidants.
Vitamin E is great for anyone with dry skin. It's generally not recommended for those with very sensitive, oily, or acne-prone skin.
