Vitamin E On Face As Overnight Treatment
Since vitamin E has a thick consistency, it’s best to apply it before bed so that it can fully absorb. If applied in the morning, you may have difficulty putting makeup or serums on top of it. 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. Here’s how to apply vitamin E oil to your face as an overnight treatment: Wash your face clean of any makeup or other skin products. Rinse your face afterward with lukewarm water, and pat your skin dry.
If you’re using pure vitamin E oil, mix one or two drops of it for every 10 drops of a carrier oil, like jojoba oil, almond oil, or coconut oil. This treatment is best repeated once or twice a week as part of a skin care routine about 30 minutes before bedtime.

How Much Vitamin E Do I Need?
The amount of vitamin E you need is: 4mg a day for men
3mg a day for women You should be able to get all the vitamin E you need from your diet. Any vitamin E your body does not need immediately is stored for future use, so you do not need it in your diet every day. Taking 540mg (800 IU) or less a day of vitamin E supplements is unlikely to cause any harm.
