3.Vitamin E Oil
Vitamin E is actually the collective term given to eight fat-soluble, naturally occurring chemical compounds that can be found in foods or taken as a dietary supplement. Vitamin E is an antioxidant, and it acts to protect the body from damage caused by free radicals. Vitamin E also helps keep the immune system strong, and helps the formation of red blood cells and keeps the blood from clotting inside them.
The best way to consume vitamin E is through a healthy diet. Vitamin E can be found in many foods like almonds, peanuts, sunflower seeds, spinach, broccoli and vegetable oils like wheat germ, safflower and soybean. Vitamin E can also be added to cereals, fruit juices, and spreads like margarine, butter and other condiments. Vitamin E is also beneficial for healthy eyesight, and can work wonders on skin and hair. It’s a common ingredient in may lotions and moisturizers due to the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory abilities, as this can help protect the skin from harmful pollutants.
The application of vitamin E can help prevent the formation of wrinkles by boosting collagen production and cell growth, which are key components in maintaining healthy, youthful skin. Vitamin E oil can also lighten brown spots that occur from age or sun damage, and it’s also extremely ideal for treating dry, rough skin as it helps the skin retain its natural moisture. It can also be used on the hands and fingers to promote healthy cuticles and nails.
Concentrated vitamin E oil can be extremely thick and sticky and hard to work with, so when using it to treat scars there are a few options. You can open vitamin E capsules and pour the oil out directly onto the scars, rubbing it in as best as possible and then allowing to sit for 20 minutes before washing off with warm water. An easier method is to dilute the vitamin E oil by combining it with a carrier oil like coconut, which makes it easier to rub into the skin. Treat your scars with vitamin E oil several times a day for maximum effect.
