8 Top Skin & Hair Benefits, Uses Of Vitamin E Oil For Scars, Wrinkles & Dry Skin

If you are a regular reader of wildturmeric blog, you must have noticed that I use vitamin e oil regularly in most of my preparations. If you also notice the ingredients list in most of the store bough creams, vitamin e oil will always be present.

There is a reason why vitamin e oil is used so much in skin care, it is an amazing antioxidant that helps fight off free radicals very effectively. You can read the research that proves this claim here.  Free radicals are the main reason for premature aging of the skin.

Regular use of vitamin e oil will greatly help in reducing the premature aging of the skin very very effectively. Another reason is vitamin E acts as a natural preservative and greatly extends the shelf life of the cream or lotion we are making along with treating many skin problems.

Vitamin E Oil Skin & Hair Benefits:

1. Vitamin E Oil For Wrinkles & Scars:

Regular use of vitamin e oil can reduce wrinkles and fine lines, I would suggest adding vitamin e oil to your regular night cream for daily use. Vitamin e oil also will reduce acne scars if used regularly.

2. Vitamin E Oil For Sunburn:

Vitamin e oil is also great for using on sunburned skin as it is very soothing, I always add vitamin e oil to my homemade sunburn creams.

3. Vitamin E Oil For Stretch Marks:

Also it is very good for treating stretch marks, to prevent stretch marks after delivery  I would suggest using vitamin e oil mixed with an unrefined oil as a massage oil throughout pregnancy and after delivery too. I was regularly following it throughout my pregnancy, it greatly reduced the itching and stretch marks.

4. Vitamin E Oil For Eyes:

Vitamin e oil when mixed with eye cream is good for reducing the dark circles around the eyes and when applied as a serum over the eyelashes will help in eyelash growth too.

5. Vitamin E Oil For Dry Skin:

Vitamin e oil is an amazing moisturizer and will keep the skin soft and supple and it can also be used by people suffering from skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.

6. Vitamin E Oil as a Natural Preservative:

Another effective use of vitamin e oil is it is an effective natural preservative so adding vitamin e oil to our creams and lotions increases their shelf life greatly.

7. Vitamin E Oil For Hair:

Vitamin E oil can be used as a massage e oil for the scalp, massaging with vitamin e oil blend will improve circulation in the scalp and promote hair growth, it also prevents dryness and split ends.

8. Vitamin E Oil For Lips:

Vitamin e oil is also great for chapped and dry lips. If my lips are very dry, I add a few drops of vitamin e oil to my homemade lip balm, always works wonders! I have always preferred to use vitamin e oil from the capsule, when I want to use, I just break open a capsule and use the content.

Vitamin E Side Effects:

Daily requirement of vitamin e can be easily achieved through diet itself, take vitamin e oil internally only if you are deficient in it. If you are planning on taking vitamin e oil as a daily supplement try not to take more than daily recommended dosage of 150 mg, I would also suggest consulting a physician for the correct dosage. Daily consuming large doses of vitamin e oil can have worst adverse effects and can be associated with risk of early death and prostate cancer. Vitamin e oil also might interfere with coumarin based anticoagulant medications…..
