The Miracle Known As Vitamin E…

Vitamin E is both a nutrient and an antioxidant. Free radicals weaken and break down healthy cells in our body. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that helps reduce this free radical damage and slow the aging process of your cells by rejuvenating the skin.  The soft and tender feeling with a glow is what you are looking for if you use this oil on a daily basis.

Below given are just few of the benefits of Vitamin E

Balancing Cholesterol


Cholesterol is a naturally occurring substance made by the liver for the proper functioning of our cells, nerves and hormones. When the levels are in their balanced state, they are normal and healthy. However, they become dangerous when they oxidises. Studies have shown that certain isomers of vitamin E serve as a protective antioxidant that fights cholesterol oxidation.


Face and Lips



You can burst a vitamin e capsule and either use the liquid directly on your face and lips or you can mix it with glycerine and wear it once a night before hitting the sack.



Prolonged use of Vitamin E oil helps in repairing the damage to the hair follicles due to pollution and chemicals. It helps with the circulation to the scalp and retains moisture which also reduces dryness and flaked dandruffs that occur. Vitamin E also thickens the hair. You can burst a vitamin E capsule and empty the contents into some coconut or almond oil and oil your hair/scalp. Let it sit overnight and use mild shampoo and conditioner the next day to wash it off.

Reducing Stretch Marks

Application of Vitamin E oils repairs the damaged tissues and helps rebuilding those tissues. This results in reducing the stretch marks. Burst a capsule or two, and apply the oil in the affected area and massage gently. The second method is that you can mix vitamin e oil with olive oil or any other body oil (try to use ones with least amount of chemicals) and rub the concoction on the stretch marks.

Anti Aging
