Vitamin E On Face As Overnight Treatment
If applied in the morning, you may have difficulty putting makeup or serums on top of it. Most over-the-counter anti-aging creams contain between .05 and 1 percent vitamin E as one of their active ingredients. 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.
Rinse your face afterward with lukewarm water, and pat your skin dry. Apply the mixture or the vitamin E serum of your choice to your skin using your fingers. Wait at least 20 minutes after application before resting your face on a pillow or any other surface.
This treatment is best repeated once or twice a week as part of a skin care routine about 30 minutes before bedtime.
What Is Vitamin E?
Yes, it is a vitamin, but if you want to get technical, the term vitamin E actually refers to a group of compounds. “Vitamin E is the name given to [a] family of oil-soluble antioxidants,” explains cosmetic chemist Ni’Kita Wilson.
“There are about eight different types” or forms of vitamin E, and of those, “tocopheryl acetate and tocopherol are most commonly found in skin-care products.”. So if you see the term “tocopherol” on the ingredient list of your favorite serum or moisturizer, it’s vitamin E.
How Does Vitamin E Benefit Skin?
“Topically, it can be very helpful [for] a range of skin disorders, as well as skin repair,” explains board-certified dermatologist Ava Shamban, M.D.
