Vitamin E - For Skin Care, UV Damage and Scarring

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble, essential nutrient with anti-inflammatory properties. Vitamin E helps support the immune system, cell function, and skin health. It’s an antioxidant , making it effective at combating the effects of free radicals produced by the metabolism of food and toxins in the environment.

Vitamin E may be beneficial at reducing UV damage to the skin. The UV light and sun exposure reduce vitamin E levels in the skin. Vitamin E levels also decrease with age. It may also be effective at reducing the symptoms of atopic dermatitis .

Vitamin E can be absorbed even better when combined with Vitamin C .
