“Summertime, and the living is easy”. What isn’t so easy is how Summer’s direct sunlight can play havoc on unprotected skin. You’ve likely experienced a little too much Sun exposure so far this Summer. What I’ll do here is show you a way you can begin protecting your skin today and potentially reverse any damage it has already suffered.
We all need to expose ourselves to the Sun as this is the way our bodies produce Vitamin D, but too much of a good thing is not so good, as too much exposure to the Sun can lead to a break down of collagen within the skin which leads to a premature aging of the skin; excess exposure can cause hyperpigmentation, i.e. dark splotches on the skin; and even worse, excess exposure can lead to skin cancer.
But instead of giving up on going outside and just accepting your damaged skin, here is the solution to heal your damaged skin: Vitamin E oil.
And here is why you will want to start using Vitamin E oil:
- Prevents aging and wrinkles: Medical research (here) shows that vitamin E and other ingredients rich in anti-oxidants can delay the wrinkles as well as repair skin damage. This occurs because Vitamin E increases circulation, which helps repair damage, thus leading to firmer skin.
- Eliminate Hyperpigmentation: Hyperpigmentation, or dark spots or splotches, occur after too much sun exposure creates a concentration of melanin in the skin. Vitamin E has been shown as an effective treatment for evening out skin color, and paired with Vitamin C, eliminates dark spots.
- Fix Chapped or cracked lips: Vitamin E promoted cell regeneration, so if you’re lips are suffering from too much time at the beach, use a little Vitamin E oil to promote faster healing.
BONUS BENEFIT: Eliminates Acne Scarring. Some people swear Vitamin E oil eliminates their acne scarring, though research has not shown the results to be consistent. So, while Vitamin E oil may work on acne scarring for some folks, your results may vary and you need to consider that if this is the reason you purchase the product.
A few drops go a long way. Use a circular motion when applying to the skin as this will increase the circulation and thus absorption. And DON’T FORGET THE TOPS OF YOUR EARS as they also are exposed. Vitamin E can also be used on other parts of the body.
Ladies- Use this product before bedtime. The oil is thick, and a few drops go a long way. Because the oil is thick, it will need about 20 minutes to fully absorb. AND because of its thickness, the oil would interfere with any attempts to put on makeup. The good news is that sleep is the time the body repairs and regenerates, and Vitamin E fits well into your body’s repair cycle.
Gentlemen– Besides using the oil on exposed skin, Vitamin E oil can be used on a daily basis as a beard oil, softening the most bristly of beards. BONUS, Vitamin E oil is about ¼ the price of most beard oils.
