Vitamin E (tocopherol) is a powerful antioxidant that helps maintain healthy and beautiful skin. The main benefit of tocopherol for the skin of the face is that it prevents oxidative processes in cells, slows down their aging, improves nutrition and protects against the negative effects of ultraviolet rays.
Ways to use vitamin E
It is very useful to use tocopherol inside, enriching your menu with it. It is found in a large number of foods - vegetables and herbs, grains, legumes, cereals, vegetable oils, nuts, meat, eggs, oily fish, and so on. An important condition is the freshness of the product, since during prolonged storage or heat treatment, vitamin E loses its beneficial properties.
The direct effect of tocopherol on the skin of the face can be achieved using creams, masks, serums and other products containing it. To restore and heal the skin, rub in or massage with liquid vitamin. You can also add tocopherol to creams and oils that you use or make your own masks based on it.
