Vitamin E is like liquid gold. Growing up, my great grandmother Gertrude would break open a vitamin E capsule for dry patches, hangnails, scars and so much more. The little gold capsules were her go-to miracle cure.
Vitamin E is a known antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. A little goes a long ways with this thick golden oil. It’s often found in beauty lotions, hair care products and lip care products. This vitamin is naturally found in sunflower seeds, almonds, mango and tomatoes, just to name a few.
I use liquid Vitamin E as a natural beauty product. Here are a just a few ways I use a drop or two of Vitamin E on a daily basis.
After a breakout, I immediately use Vitamin E to help prevent any scaring and promote healing.
2Nail Cuticles and Dry Lips.
Before bed, I use a drop and gently massage the oil into my cuticles and finish with adding any remaining oil onto my lips. I do not waste the liquid gold and remember a little goes a long ways.
If I cut myself shaving (I always do), I immediately use a little Vitamin E oil to promote the healing and prevent a white scar from appearing on my legs.
Daily styling dries out my hair. To keep it looking nice, once a week after my shower I rub a few drops into the palm of my hands and into the ends of my hair. This is a great hair moisturizer.
My heels get very dry in the summer from wearing flip-flops and no socks. After using a pumice stone in the shower, I use just a drop or two before bed and it makes all the difference.
I also love using Now Foods Vitamin E cream. This is great for traveling or for using on my elbows or legs after shaving. It’s much thicker and less greasy. If you want to learn more about Vitamin E, check out this FAQ page with lots of information.
