Wow! Can it really be Thursday already? Yet another weekend is almost upon us. I have so much more to share about the role vitamins and other nutrients play in keeping your skin beautiful and healthy.
Yesterday, I spent a good deal of time talking about the healthy benefits of the B vitamins. In keeping with the fact we are talking right now about vitamins that affect the look of the skin, we are going to take a quick look at vitamin E today.
Scientific studies show that this potent antioxidant helps reduce the harmful effects of the sun on the skin, just as vitamin C does.
The studies also show that taking as little as 400 units of vitamin E daily reduces the risk of sun damage to skin cells, as well as reduces the production of pre and cancer-causing cells.
Some studies show that when vitamins E and A are taken together, people show a 70% reduction in basal cell carcinoma, a common form of skin cancer. It is important to note here that this is taking these vitamins internally.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), vitamin E has also been shown to help reduce wrinkles and make your skin look and feel smoother.
Please be aware that some recent research warns that large doses of vitamin E can be harmful. Stay with 400 international units per day or less to be on the safe side, when it comes to dosages.
Used in a cream, lotion, or serum form, vitamin E can soothe dry, rough skin. When combined with vitamin C in a lotion, it's highly protective against sun damage, says the AAD.
