Vitamin E has long been known to be good for skin, but it has not always been understood what exactly it does to protect and improve the appearance of skin. Not only does it act as an antioxidant, but it also helps to build new collagen deposits, rev up cell production, and regulate moisture production.

As an antioxidant, it can help to neutralize the damaging free radicals that enter the skin either through too much sun exposure or environmental pollutants. Some harmful, artificial cosmetics may even contain substances that generate free radicals when they are applied to the skin. The effect of these free radicals is premature signs of aging, specifically, fine lines and wrinkles. Some women may even experience extra-dry skin. Vitamin E is absorbed into the deepest layer of the skin, where it helps the cells from the damaging effects of these free radicals, giving skin a chance to become healthy and lessen the appearance of the signs of aging.

With its nutritive properties, natural vitamin E plays a two-fold role in reducing wrinkles. By boosting blood flow, this ingredient improves the skin’s ability to grow its collagen, which is the structure in the skin that keeps it looking plump and firm. As we age, and as skin is harmed by the sun, collagen breaks down, and the skin does not have the ability to replace it. An application of natural Vitamin E gives the skin the ability to restore these structures.

Our skin may have improper moisture levels from the time we are young children, but it is most likely that teenagers and mature women will experience either too oily or too dry skin. Both of these are symptoms of the same problem: the skin does not know how much moisture it needs. Often, skin will sense that it is too dry and will produce far too much moisture to relieve this condition. On the other hand, skin can also detect when it is too oily and will often react by ceasing production of oil altogether. Both of these conditions signify that the cells are not retaining moisture properly.

Vitamin E helps cells retain the moisture that skin creates (which has the added benefit of helping cells appear fuller and firmer), which can eliminate both oily, greasy skin, and dry, flaky skin. When added to a moisturizer, it can help that moisturizer be properly absorbed into the skin and allow the skin to hold onto it, instead of allowing it to be fade away.
