Vitamin E And Skin

Hopefully by the end of this article you’ll have no doubts about this subject.

Vitamin E On Face As Overnight Treatment

Typically, you can apply a serum or oil mixture containing vitamin E as an all-over treatment on your face. This is different than using vitamin E to spot-treat a blemish, using a beauty treatment mask for a brief period of time, or taking an oral supplement that contains vitamin E. Applying vitamin E as an anti-aging or skin-conditioning agent overnight involves letting the product completely absorb into your skin. Look for a product with a high concentration of vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol is often the ingredient name), or search for pure vitamin E oil.
Apply the mixture or the vitamin E serum of your choice to your skin using your fingers. Rub your face in small circular motions as you apply the treatment so that you stimulate circulation and spread the product out as far as it will go. This treatment is best repeated once or twice a week as part of a skin care routine about 30 minutes before bedtime.

Abstract
