VITAMIN E - THE ORIGINAL 'MUST HAVE' SKIN CARE INGREDIENT

January 13, 2022

 

 

 

For first blog for the year and I wanted to keep it fun and summer themed. As the weather has shockingly been turning it on here in Newy over the last week (La Niña who???), indoor activities are out and sunshine, and outdoor fun and in!

However as much as we try our hardest to SLIP, SLOP, SLAP! We can never be too careful with our skin, especially here in Australia with that bloody great big hole in the ozone layer.

Enter Vitamin E.

 

Vitamin E is a tried and true ingredient in body and face moisturisers and there’s a good reason for that. It works. We traditionally know vitamin E as a treatment for scars, skin discolourations and anti-aging but did you know that it helps prevent and heal sunburn? Here are some Vitamin E tidbits to solidify why it really is the queen of ‘must have’ skin care ingredients.

Removes Dirt

Vitamin E oil is a heavy emollient. It removes dirt from your pores. Which means it helps to prevent and remove blackheads and acne.

 

Reduces Hyperpigmentation

Increased melanin production in your skin causes a darker skin tone in places. This is known as melasma. According to skin experts, melasma can be treated with topical Vitamin E which helps to break down the built up hyperpigmentation spots.

Prevents Skin Ageing

Dry skin is one of the major reasons for visible early skin ageing. Often dry skinned people experience more wrinkles and fine lines. Vitamin E is also antioxidant-rich and super moisturising. The antioxidants present in Vitamin E oil can improve your blood circulation which encourages new cell regeneration.

 

Prevent Sunburn

Studies have shown that using Vitamin E oil can protect you from sunburn along with with SPF50+. For after sun, applying vitamin E oil on a sunburned area will soothe the skin and reduce the redness. There are also studies about the reduction of sun damage after the application of topical Vitamin E. But like I said before, SLIP, SLOP, SLAP first! 

Fights Against Free Radicals

Free radicals can occur due to extreme sun exposure, environmental pollutants, radiation and tobacco smoke. It breaks down your collagen layer resulting in early ageing signs, blemishes and unwanted acne breakouts.

Vitamin E is a potent antioxidant that prevents oxidative damage to your skin cells caused by the free radicals. It can also absorb the energy from ultraviolet (UV) light, preventing UV-induced free radical damage to skin.

We include Vitamin E into a whole bunch of Scrubba Body products. All of our Lip Balms, Lip Scrubs, Face Masks, Body Oils and Body Scrubs have Vitamin E added.

It’s been a wild ride ol’ 2021. Full of cliches “It can’t be as bad as last year”, “Such a rollercoaster” and “we’re all in this together” plus a hundred more to that effect. I don’t want to lie and say this was a great year but instead of dwelling on the lows, I wanted to remember and celebrate the highs.

On the blog this week I wanted to talk about gifting and why we should all choose small business for all of our Christmas shopping. After the last 20 months of economic ups and downs, small businesses are really counting on the Christmas rush to keep the cash flowing, the staff paid and their dreams alive. So over the next few weeks I wanted to share some small businesses that I love and trust. Each week will have a different theme, but I can guarantee there will be something here for everyone!

This week I wanted to share some companies and artists creating amazing things for around the home
