Does vitamin E improve skin-tone?

One of the questions I get ask frequently is; does vitamin E improve skin-tone? The short answer is, yes. Vitamin E is fat-soluble, essential nutrient that has anti-inflammatory properties.It helps to support the immune system, cell function and importantly, skin health.

It’s an antioxidant, making it super effective at combating the effects of the free radicals produced by the metabolism of food and toxins in the environment. Antioxidants are so important to our health, both topically and internally because they prevent oxidative damage to cells by helping to remove free radicals also known as the bad guys.

Vitamin E fights off the free radicals on the skin, so it will help protect the skin from further damage while moisturizing and healing which can improve skin-tone. 

It helps to strengthen the skin and has a moderately effective natural barrier to the sun. So make sure to use your fave skin products during the summer for that added protection and enjoy the extra moisturizing we need in the winter when the air becomes colder and causes the skin to dry and crack. We are proud to include our amazing skin and body care; VinoSpa, as one of those must have lines that have included high quality, non diluted Vitamin E in many of our products including butter and moisture.

It is believed to be beneficial at reducing UV damage to the skin. Some skin care specialists feel that is has been helpful at reducing symptoms of atopic dermatitis.

Atopic dermatitis is also known as eczema. Atopic refers to an allergy. There is still so much to learn about the why and how to help with eczema that it is always a challenge to find a solution but we are hearing more stories of how Vitamin E has helped to soothe and diminish the irritated skin.

It appears to aid in helping the skin to heal and reduce scarring and many products with Vitamin E also appear to help fade age spots.

Vitamin E is easily absorbed into the skin and is often added to skin care products like anti-aging cremes, eye creams, sunscreens and makeup.If you see the term “ tocopherol” on your ingredient list in your moisturizer or serum, it is Vitamin E. Buy it, use it, and enjoy the benefits.

If you are familiar with and like the brand Caudalie but you are looking for a local sustainable vegan alternative, for your vitamin E supply, look to VinoSpa for your skincare needs.
