What is  vitamin E good for?:

E for excellence. Vitamin E is like that goldfish you have and only need to feed it once a day. He doesn’t bother you, is quiet and doesnt need alot of love and attention. However he is super chilled and knows how to maintain a healthy clean tank. E is a powerful lipid soluble antioxidant and plays a major part in protection of our cell membrane.  E inhibits the breakdown of essential fatty acids and is a group of molecules that have some unique properties in the skin. E is normally provided to the skin through the sebum and helps protect our skin through photo protection as it absorbs UV preventing UVB induced free radical damage to the skin.

What are the benefits of vitamin E for the skin :

E is super anti inflammatory for our skin and body. It helps reduce inflammation in the skin and body and maintain a healthy skin protection barrier. E can be found mainly in an oil forum but to absorb E in our body it  is best found in cooked spinach , broccoli , avocado , fish , almonds , sunflower seed and hazelnuts just to name a few.
