Vitamin E is an antioxidant vitamin that protects skin cells from damage. It is naturally produced in the body via sebum. Sebum is oil that the skin naturally creates to retain moisture and to keep harmful substances (toxins) from penetrating the skin. However, sebum production declines as we age. This means we have less natural Vitamin E to keep skin hydrated and protected. Fortunately, you can replace this vital vitamin. Here is a list of some of the best Vitamin E products for gorgeous skin!
Facial cleansers containing sunflower oil will be an excellent source of this vitamin. If you’re unsure which cleanser to try, Eminence’s Stone Crop Cleansing Oil is gentle and non-greasy, making it one of the best Vitamin E cleansers available.
Best Facial Oils
If you’re looking for face oils, look for ingredients such as jojoba oil, grapeseed oil, and hemp seed oil. All contain high amounts of Vitamin E. Lydia Dainow’s Huile Demaquillante face oil is an excellent source of this vitamin. If you prefer a solid face oil, Eminence’s Camellia Glow Solid Face Oil contains antioxidant and vitamin-rich hemp seed oil.
Moisturizers & Serums
Look for daily moisturizers that include ingredients such as sunflower oil, wheat germ oil, grapeseed oil, hemp seed oil, goji berry oil, and other seed and nut oils. Osmosis + MD’s Quench moisturizer is an excellent choice for dry skin. Immerse moisture booster (Osmosis + MD) is also rich in Vitamin E, thanks to raspberry seed oil.
For sun protection, look for a premium moisturizing cream containing shea butter, which is also laden with vitamins.
To repair damaged skin, consider adding a serum such as Osmosis + MD’s Replenish serum. It is absolutely loaded with antioxidants.
Does Your Skincare Product Contain Vitamin E?
Vitamin E may be highlighted on the package of your skincare product. But if you don’t see it on the box, read the ingredients. Keep in mind that Vitamin E is technically a group of compounds.
To determine if a product you’re considering contains Vitamin E, look for “tocopherol acetate” and “tocopherol” in the ingredients list. These are both Vitamin E compounds.
Products containing shea butter and nearly all seed and nut oils are also excellent sources of Vitamin E.
Combine Vitamin E and Vitamin C to Bring Out the Best in Your Skin
There’s a reason that many premium skincare products contain both Vitamin E and Vitamin C. Both are potent antioxidants, so when paired, they offer incredible protection against free radicals you encounter every day. However, Vitamin C is known to be a bit unstable. It can separate from the rest of a skincare product. Vitamin E prevents this separation, thereby preventing Vitamin C from becoming oxidized quickly.
When bundled together, Vitamin C and E offer excellent protection from sun damage, reduce redness, mitigate signs of aging, and help tone hyperpigmentation in the skin.
