Vitamin E - must-have ingredient in cosmetics
 Vitamin E - a truly stellar component for the majority of funds for skin care! Widely known for its ability to fight free radicals, as well as natural origin. These facts made it a very popular ingredient in creams and serums for the face. But everything we know about the effects of vitamin E?

What is vitamin E
Vitamin E refers to a group of fat-soluble compounds in their natural form it is made leather, there are also many products, such as margarine, green and yellow vegetables, nuts, meats, cereals, vegetable oil and some dairy products. We should know that the number of connections includes vitamin E such as alpha, beta, delta and gamma tocopherols, and alpha, beta, delta and gamma tocotrienols. They can be prepared by either natural (vegetable oil) and synthetically in the laboratory.

To know the exact origin of these ingredients should be looking at the markings. If before the name is the letter D (e.g., D-alpha-tocopherol), this means a natural origin. The prefix DL is a synthetic production. Both types of compounds of "work" successfully with the skin, but observed that the ingredients derived from nature, operate more efficiently.

The antioxidant properties of vitamin E
Vitamin E - a powerful antioxidant that helps fight free radicals. Free radicals are caused by several factors: impaired metabolism, pollution, ultraviolet radiation. This oxygen molecule expansions that have lost electrons and they need as quickly as possible to fill them, and they do, "attacking" the neighboring molecule. Other molecules are a result of free radicals, and they too are looking for a missing electron, there is a chain reaction. This leads to chaos and imbalance in the condition of the skin, as a result - to premature aging. But vitamin E is able to break this chain process.

Despite the fact that vitamin E in its natural form is present in the skin, and its reserves are depleted when we are in the sun, as well as with age. Therefore, our skin so you must constantly maintain the presence of vitamin E in the skin.

Scientists believe that no matter what type you use vitamin E: tocopherols and tocotrienols. Both effective antioxidant use. Although there is a study on the greater efficiency of tocotrienols, but it was carried out on animals and studied only the use of inside and not on skin.

Another benefit of vitamin E - anti-inflammatory effect. It soothes irritation, helping to keep the skin in good condition. But any irritation - a small "brick" to premature aging of the skin, so more vitamin E, and in this way stops the aging process.

Vitamin E and sun protection
It is proved that the use of tocopherol on animals provided protection against UV-rays. In addition, vitamin E reduces the likelihood of sunburn and increases the efficacy of the active ingredients used in sunscreens.

Best of all vitamin E is able to protect from the sun in combination with vitamin C. But do not think that it is necessary to throw out the sunscreen and only use vitamins E and C. Vitamin E - is not a sunscreen, it does not work as a sunscreen, it only has to go in its composition! You can specifically add it to your sunscreen.

Vitamin E and moisturizing
Besides the above action, vitamin E (and in particular, alpha-tocopheryl acetate) is a moisturizing ingredient. It enhances the natural protective barrier of the skin, reduces moisture loss. Within a few hours, the skin looks soft and smooth.

Vitamin E - a preservative
The good news: Vitamin E is often used as a preservative in a variety of cosmetic products, especially natural, organic origin. It can prevent the modification of the product under the influence of light, so it is often put in a transparent packaging. If you see the vitamin E in the list of ingredients in the end of the list, it generally means that it is just used as a preservative in small amounts. But there is bad news. If vitamin E is used only as a preservative, it is negligibly small concentrations that do not assist in or sun antioxidant action.

Vitamin E and Acne
Many people believe that vitamin E helps in the treatment of acne. But, unfortunately, there is no evidence of this in modern cosmetology. On the contrary, there is a study that vitamin E not only helps with acne, but it can also harm. In 90% of cases, the use of vitamin E or no effect on the situation of acne, or seen the deterioration of the skin.

Side effects from the use of vitamin E
Despite the fact that vitamin E has a lot of indications for use in cosmetics, do not think that it has no side effects. As all the ingredients included in the cosmetic composition, regardless of their origin, the local application may cause skin reactions such as allergies, contact dermatitis, urticaria. If you notice such a reaction from your funds with vitamin E, discontinue its use. Benefit from the "this" of vitamin E will not.

However, it is also true that the vast majority of people still vitamin E bolshii useful than harmful. And the problems of it will not. Do you have a cream with vitamin E? Check. And if not - perhaps there is a reason to buy a new product?
