Vitamin E, being totally natural and mild, works nothing less than like a magic potion for your hair and your skin. As a result, it’s one of the prime ingredients in almost every skincare and hair care product of today.

Vitamin E oil is known to treat all of your skin, hair and health issues pretty effectively.

Here’s a list of some of the amazing ways in which Vitamin E oil can prove to be beneficial for the health of your skin and hair.


#1 For Removing Makeup

Vitamin E benefits of hair and skin 

Makeup remover 

Are you out of makeup remover or even wet wipes? Finally, make use of that vitamin E capsule lying in your cabinet. It removes all of the makeup from your skin effectively and smoothly. Simply cut open a vitamin E capsule and mix the oil with a tablespoon of coconut oil. Dip a cotton pad in the solution and wipe off your makeup and unclog your pores at the same time. 


#2 For Stretch Marks

Reduces stretch marks 

Vitamin E oil is used for multiple concerns including getting rid of stretch marks. Apply a few drops of the oil onto your stretch marks and massage gently in a circular motion for a good five to 10 minutes. Do this every day, without fail, for a couple of months and you’ll notice your stretch marks starting to fade away! 

Treats dark circles 

Are you tired of sporting permanent panda eyes? Another magical benefit of vitamin E for skin involves reducing dark circles. This antioxidant also has anti-ageing properties that can prevent eye bags and puffiness. Make a mask with one vitamin E capsule, two tablespoons of potato juice, and one tablespoon of honey and mix them well. Massage this paste to your under-eye and wash it off after 15 minutes. 

Helps hair growth 

Enough about skin. Now how do we use vitamin E for hair growth? It encourages collagen production which in turn builds hair protein needed to amp up the speed of your hair growth. Mix three to four capsules of vitamin E oil with two tablespoons of jojoba oil and massage it onto your scalp. Leave the mixture on overnight before rinsing it off in the morning with cold water. You can repeat this routine once a week for best results.  


#3 For Treating Dark Circles

Stops hair loss  

Vitamin E also heals damaged hair follicles and strengthens the roots. So, if you are worried about hair loss, that’s a thing of the past. You can topically apply it or even include vitamin E supplements. Consult a doctor on which supplement will work best for you. 

Enhances blood circulation  

Certain benefits of vitamin E for hair and skin take place at the same time too. You can stimulate skin and hair cells by massaging vitamin E oil on your face and scalp. It reduces stress while also encouraging the growth of hair. Once absorbed in your skin, it reduces all types of skin inflammation and controls hyperpigmentation. 

Make scalp healthier  

A damaged scalp is also linked to hair loss. Vitamin E can help clear the grime and excess oil, and let your hair follicles breathe. It is also a natural antioxidant that helps in hydrating a dry scalp. It is even known to maintain your pH levels which means no more dandruff! 


#4 For Hair Growth

Adds shine   

As we mentioned earlier, vitamin E is an antioxidant. So, what does that mean for your hair? One, eating it strengthens your immune system which helps in restoring your hair’s natural shine. Two, applying the oil to your hair betters its health as it can cure all types of conditions from frizz and split ends to brittle and damaged locks. End up with a shiny mane by adding vitamin E to your haircare routine. 

Sources of vitamin E  

Food and diet 

One of the easiest ways of maximising all of the benefits of vitamin E is to add it to your diet. You can find it in food items like wheat germ oil, soybean oil, sunflower seeds, almonds, peanuts, spinach, red bell pepper and pumpkin.  

Vitamin E oil capsule  

You can either ingest a vitamin E capsule or cut it open and apply the oil directly to your skin and hair. And applying it topically is as easy as it can get. Cut open a capsule in the middle with a scissor and pour out its contents into a bowl or your palm. And, that’s literally it. Take the oil and apply it to the areas you want to treat. You can leave it overnight and wash it off the next day.
