Benefits of Vitamin E on Skin Care

Vitamin E, otherwise known as Alpha Tocopherol, Tocopherol, or Tocopheryl (Acetate, Succinate) is a popular antioxidant that helps to protect cell membranes. In foods, it can naturally be found in green leafy vegetables, eggs, and vegetable oils and whole grains.

There is quite a bit of scientific studies to support the findings that Vitamin E helps with the following medical conditions:

· Anemia if a person has low Vitamin E

· Burns in some conditions

· Epilepsy in children

· Immune function in elderly people

· Intermittent claudication – clinical definition for muscle pain

· Rheumatoid arthritis

· Tardive dyskinesia – a difficult to treat disorder resulting in involuntary, repetitive body movements

There are other medical conditions that have mixed reports from scientific studies in relation to Vitamin E, so do your due diligence in researching if you so desire.

Many people love to use Vitamin E products on their skin to help reduce fine lines and the luxuriant feel it gives to skin. Many claim other health benefits of vitamin E on skin, but there can also be mixed reviews on this, again do your own research.

In this article we’ll show you how to make your own luxuriant Vitamin E skin cream and facial scrubs. Some reasons many chose to make their own is they can customize the recipe to their own use, and they know exactly what is going into the product they put on their skin. If possible, it’s best to use the highest quality ingredients possible, and organic is a great way to go to avoid chemicals and pesticides that may find their way into pre-made creams and scrubs.

Vitamin E Skin Cream Recipe


Oils (Liquids)

3/4 cup of one of the following: apricot (which is a light oil), almond, soy or olive oil. You may also use a combination of any of the above oils, just make sure the total liquid oil comes to ¾ of a cup.


Oils (Solids)

1/3 cup Coconut Oil
2 Tablespoons Mango Butter
1/2 ounce Shea Butter,


Water Mixture

2/3 cup Distilled Water
1/2 cup Aloe Vera (don’t use fresh from the plant as it can become rancid quickly)
Lastly
2 Vitamin E Caps (cut and put oil only)
2-3 drops Essential Oil (optional)


Take a saucepan and under low heat melt the solid oils until they are liquid. At the same time, heat in another saucepan the distilled water on low. Once the oil is liquefied, remove both from heat and let cool at the same temperatures (don’t let the oils re-solidify however).
In a food processor or blender, blend the warmed oil and water together thoroughly. Slowly add the liquid oils while blending, and continue adding in all remaining ingredients.
As this cools, it will become a thick creamy consistency. Spoon into jars or other containers you want to store this in.


Vitamin E Facial Scrub Recipe

1 cup salt
2 teaspoons olive oil
15 drops Vitamin E oil
Grate ¼ bar of facial soap (I like Dove for its mildness)
Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container. This is wonderful to use in the shower. You can also substitute the facial soap if you prefer with about ¼ cup of oatmeal.
