says celebrity dermatologist and founder of Ambrosia Aesthetics, Dr. Niketa Sonavane.
As we age, the body’s normal functioning becomes disrupted and a special ingredient called collagen (retains the youthfulness of our skin) declines in production. This results in age-related skin changes like loss of elasticity, and wrinkles.
Wonders of Vitamin E
Vitamin E is naturally present in skin, depending upon the skin types. However, with aging, even the production of vitamin E declines, similar to collagen.
“Vitamin E can seal small cracks in the skin’s barrier, which can allow moisture to escape and leave the skin feeling tight and dry. A healthy skin barrier means plump, hydrated skin and less skin sensitivity. Products with vitamin E allow for much longer-lasting moisture retention between your skin cells than those that do not contain it,” says Dr. Sonavane.
Hence, supplementing our skin with Vitamin E-enriched skincare products may thereby help increase its effectiveness and fight off various aging-related skin problems.
However, it is recommended that people with sensitive, oily, or acne-prone skin consult their dermatologist before getting on board with vitamin E supplements.
