Benefits of Vitamin E Oil for Skin and Hair
We put vitamin E oil in our natural deodorant because of just how darn nutritious it is for our bodies!
Vitamin E, also known as ‘Alpha-Tocopherol’ is a wonderfully powerful antioxidant that protects our bodies from free radicals. We come into contact with free radicals daily (if not hourly). Free radicals are caused from multiple sources like the sun, car exhaust, pollution, pesticides, and many of the chemicals found in our household products. Our skin, hair and immunity are impacted by those free radicals. But good ol’ vitamin E and several other sources of antioxidants can help protect and restore any damage that may have been done.
How Our Skin and Hair Benefits from Vitamin E Oil
Not only can our hair reap the benefits of vitamin e oil, but so can our scalp. And our scalps can certainly use some tender loving! Let’s have a look at all the ways your hair can benefit from vitamin E oil.
Natural Remedy for Dandruff and Dry Scalp
It should come as no surprise that vitamin E oil adds needed moisture to the scalp for those itching from dry scalp and dandruff. It will also soothe the hair glands and restore balance to the scalp for a happy scalp!
Stimulates Hair Growth
Vitamin E oil encourages blood circulation to the scalp which can help stimulate the hair follicles to produce healthy and strong strands. In the meantime it will also repair dry or damaged hair follicles.
For best results mix equal parts vitamin e oil with a carrier oil like coconut oil or olive oil. Let rest for an hour and then shampoo as usual. We recommend that you heat up the oil so that it's warm for a really delightful self-care experience!
Prevents Premature Graying
Premature graying comes from damaged or decaying hair tissue. Oils like vitamin e help restore and reboot hair tissue so you can keep your color for longer.
Split Ends Fix
Remember that hot oil treatment we suggested above. It’ll also help repair split ends and any damage you may have from exposing your hair to high heat.
Natural remedy for dry skin
The same way vitamin e can help nourish your scalp and hair, it can nourish your skin. It prevents moisture from evaporating from the skin. It also helps promote a balanced level of natural oil so your skin can feel naturally soft.
The powerful antioxidants in vitamin e oil, can heal UV damage near the surface of the skin. It will both soothe the pain from the sunburn and help heal the damage done.
Prevents wrinkles and stretch marks
Vitamin E can help boost the production of both elastin and collagen to the skin to help maintain the skin’s elasticity. It can reduce the appearance of fine lines, age spots and sun spots and can prevent new fine lines from appearing.
Similarly, with stretch marks vitamin e will help return elasticity to the skin and will also soothe any itchiness where the stretch marks may be (or have been).
Bet you never thought of an oil as a cleansing agent before? It can actually cleanse and tone the skin. Massaging this oil onto the surface of the skin can help remove dirt, makeup and excess oil from the pores.
We feel very confident that you can probably guess why we had to include vitamin e in our natural deodorants for both your beautiful kids and family!
