How to Use Vitamin E Oil

Applying vitamin E oil to the skin has many beneficial uses, including offering antioxidants to protect against free radicals, reduce the signs of aging and replenish the vitamin in our bodies after sun or air pollution. Individuals who have various skin types should use vitamin E oil on their skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and women have used the oil to prevent stretch marks during pregnancy. The most beneficial way to use vitamin E oil is to make it a regular part of a beauty and skin-care regimen. You can either find vitamin E oil at health-food stores, or you can easily puncture vitamin E capsules and squeeze out the liquid to use.

Things You'll Need

  • Vitamin E oil or capsules

Step 2

Apply a toner or astringent to minimize pores and remove any remaining dirt or oil left behind after cleansing. Toner also preps the skin for moisturizer by making it more receptive to lotion or creams.

Relieve sunburn by lightly applying vitamin E oil to the burned areas. The antioxidants in the oil work to reduce the negative effects of prolonged sun exposure on the skin. Use oil on the sunburned areas twice daily until they have healed.

Prevent stretch marks during pregnancy by applying vitamin E oil onto the belly twice a day to keep skin moisturized and less likely to leave stretch marks. Many people also use vitamin E oil to reduce the appearance of existing stretch marks.
