Vitamin E is a nutrient full of miraculous wonders that can rejuvenate our health and beauty. Taking Vitamin E capsules is considered good for health benefits. But very few are aware that this nutrient is amazing for skin and hair health when it is directly applied on the affected areas. You can either buy pure Vitamin E oil or get Vitamin E capsules (the purest form of the nutrient available in market, other than natural sources, of course), cut them, and use the serum inside for application. Here are 10 amazing hacks that will tell you how Vitamin E can bring that glow back to your skin and keep your hair shining and healthy.
1. Treats stubborn scars
Apply Vitamin E serum right out of the capsules to fight stubborn scars. Whether the scar is new or an old one, Vitamin E can work really well to ensure it fades away soon, leaving your skin much more beautiful. Gently apply the liquid from the capsules (or use Vitamin E oil) on the scar and massage it softly for a minute. In that way, Vitamin E will go deep into the skin layers and start working on the skin tissues of the affected areas. Make sure you apply it daily for better and faster results.
2. Deals with stubborn stretch marks
Most people will tell you those stubborn stretch marks are likely to stay for life. But you need not believe them. Just apply some Vitamin E liquid on those and the marks will fade soon. Take the liquid out of the Vitamin E capsules and mix it well with lemon juice. Now massage gently on the stretch marks for a while and leave it for about 30 minutes. Wash it off with water and you will immediately notice a difference. Apply the solution daily, for a month or so, for significant difference.
3. Treats eczema and psoriasis
Tough skin problems like eczema and psoriasis can also be cured by Vitamin E. Just apply Vitamin E oil on the affected skin every day and you will see improvement in skin conditions within a few weeks.
4. Get healthy nails
You can get those lustrous, beautiful, and long nails with the help of Vitamin E oil. It is a simple, easy, and effective solution for cracking and splitting nails. Even the dry cuticles that trouble you can be taken care of, with the help of Vitamin E. Just pour some Vitamin E serum from the capsules or put Vitamin E oil in a deep dish filled with water. Dip your fingers in it for 10 minutes and take them out. Do it for at least five times a week and see the magic for yourself. You can also apply the Vitamin E oil or serum directly on the nails.
5. Get soft and supple lips
Vitamin E is a great solution for chapped and dry lips. Applied directly on the lips, Vitamin E liquid (from the capsule) or Vitamin E oil works well as lip moisturizer and makes them smooth. Apply it regularly to make your lips supple and pink in color.
6. Great moisturizer for the skin
Mix a little Vitamin E liquid with your body lotion before applying it and it will keep your skin moisturized for a longer period of time. It will also even out any brown mark or dry skin patch. You can also pour some Vitamin E oil straight into your moisturizer bottle, shake it well, and apply the mixture daily.
7. Heals sunburns
Vitamin E can be a great healing agent for sunburns. Applying it on the skin helps the epidermis to absorb this nutrient directly and work on reversing the damage done by the harsh rays of the sun. Apply it twice a day to cure the burns faster.
8. Fights signs of aging
Vitamin E oil helps the skin make collagen that effectively slows down the process of skin aging. Incidentally, aging of the skin happens due to less collagen production in it. Applying Vitamin E directly on the skin stimulates skin cells and the production of collagen makes the fine lines disappear. Regular application will also prevent new wrinkles and lines appearing on your skin, thanks to the antioxidants found in the Vitamin E oil.
9. Battles premature graying of hair
Vitamin E also has the capability to slow down aging and rejuvenate your hair. Premature graying of hair is basically caused by oxidation of the tissues. Vitamin E application helps prevent the corrosion of tissues, which in turn stops the premature graying of your hair.
10. Smoothens split ends
Split ends steal the beauty away from your lovely locks. Usually, too much application of chemicals like hair colors or overstyling (blow drying, curling, straightening, etc.) cause severe damage to the hair and one of the biggest impacts will be split ends. But this can be treated easily with the help of Vitamin E and other oils. Mix equal parts of Vitamin E, olive oil, and coconut oil, and apply it on the split ends. Leave it on for an hour and shampoo it. Do this at least thrice a week and you will see the difference.
