Vitamin E is a fat soluble antioxidant which can literally work wonders for the skin due to its rejuvenating, nourishing, hydrating and cell protecting properties. Research has shown that it helps repair skin and cell damage. Vitamin E can be taken orally through diet and nutritional supplements. Foods that contain high amounts of vitamin E are Spinach, Avocados, Almonds, Pumpkin Seeds and Sunflower seeds.
To get the maximum skin cell protection and nourishment, you should take it orally and apply it topically. Most anti-aging creams contain vitamin E as it helps prevent premature ageing. When used regularly, it protects the skin from the damaging effects of the sun as well as reducing age spots, scars and stretch marks.
