The Role of Vitamin E in Skin Care

Vitamin E is a naturally occurring component of healthy skin. It offers significant antioxidant properties to help defend from pollution and other environmental stressors that would otherwise weaken and cause unwanted changes in skin. On a slightly more technical level, vitamin E, also known as tocopherol, actually refers to a family of compounds and is the umbrella name for a group of oil-soluble antioxidants. The most common ones in skin care are alpha-tocopherol and tocopherol acetate.

Vitamin E’s primary job is to protect the lipid bilayers in the epidermis and skin cell membranes from attack by free radicals (and reactive oxygen species). Besides working to neutralise free radicals and prevent signs of aging (such as reduced collagen and fine lines), it is also a ‘photo-protectant’ and encourages cellular repair to help fight against sun damage.

A lipid is basically a fancy word for a fatty substance. Lipids include substances such as fatty acids, fats, and waxes. The skin cells in the stratum corneum of the epidermis are held together by lipid bilayers. When these lipids are attacked, the skin’s barrier function weakens, making skin more vulnerable to dehydration, irritation, and infection.

Lipids are also found in cell membranes, and when these are attacked, the membranes lose their permeability. Nutrients and wastes are transported less efficiently as a result. In addition, glycation can occur in cell membrane lipids too.

Lipid Peroxide is a free radical (Reactive Oxygen Species) that attacks lipids, an oxidation process called lipid peroxidation. Vitamin E protects lipids from this lipid peroxidation.

Vitamin E is the common name of this ingredient however rarely appears on a skin care ingredient list as Vitamin E.  It will generally appear listed as one of the following; Tocopheryl Acetate; Tocopheryl Glucoside; Tocopheryl Linoleate; Tocopheryl Linoleate/Oleate; Tocopheryl Nicotinate; Tocopheryl Succinate;  Potassium Ascorbyl Tocopheryl Phosphate; Sodium Tocopheryl Phosphate or Tocopherol Phosphate.

Vitamin E is also used as an emollient and preservative in skin care. When used as a preservative, it appears near the end of the ingredient list.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E gets into the skin and fights against the free radicals, strengthening the cells and improving the natural barrier for the skin. You’ll see fewer wrinkles and age spots. But that’s not all that it does! It’s excellent for improving the look of current scars and avoiding future scars. You’ll slow down the aging process, as the cells are fully supported. The cells find it easier to repair or grow back normally.

It’s possible to improve the natural immunity to diseases. This is good for the skin if you suffer from bacterial, viral, or fungal infections regularly. Athlete’s foot is one of the most common conditions that you can improve using a vitamin E cream.

Vitamin E will add moisture to your skin. By getting plenty of moisture, you support the health of the deeper layers of your skin and improve collagen production. We’ve already looked at how good the collagen production is for the skin. The vitamin E will work with the Retinol (Vitamin A) to prevent wrinkles and fine lines forming.

Vitamin E is naturally good for healing the skin. It helps to soothe burns, reduce inflammation, and protect against scarring from wounds. This means it’s the best option for reducing redness and limiting the amount of acne that you break out in. It will also help with balancing the hormones inside. When your hormones are balanced, your oil production is controlled. This will help to keep pores unclogged, so you don’t suffer from too many acne breakouts. UV light and sun exposure reduce vitamin E levels in skin, and levels also decrease with age. 

Types of Vitamin E Skin Care

Typically available in oil and cream form. While there are dedicated products with stronger concentrations of vitamin E, it is also a common addition to many anti-aging creams, serums, face masks and sunscreens in a lower dose, and is frequently combined with vitamin C for increased absorption. 

Despite its many reported advantages, vitamin E skin care is not recommended for everyone. According to the expert-reviewed resource Healthline, those who have very oily, sensitive or acne-prone skin may find topical vitamin E oil to be aggravating. And while it is highly uncommon, it can also trigger an allergic reaction in some people, resulting in skin irritation, itchiness or a rash.

For the most part, however, it is very safe and works optimally when teamed with vitamin C (or used in a product that has both). Those with occasionally sensitive skin may best benefit from a moisturiser containing vitamin E over a highly-concentrated serum or oil.it

A Guide to Selecting the Best Skin Care Products

Your skin is the bodies largest organ. Its major functions are protection, regulation and sensation. If our skin is not functioning to its full ability, these functions may become compromised.

It’s easy to get lost in the sea of skin care options these days. Not only are there doctors, dermatologists, skin care professionals and aestheticians telling you this or that, you also have YouTubers, bloggers and beauty enthusiasts flooding you with thoughts and ideas too. It’s no wonder there are so many skin issues and concerns these days. When you don’t know where to start or what information is reliable, how is your skin really going to respond? More importantly, the use of incorrect skin care products can actually exasperate your condition or cause additional skin problems.

The use of professional active ingredient skin care is recommended. The “Professional” skin care products we recommended on this site can only be purchased through certified stockists and practitioners who are required to provide their professional advice on the application of these products, (as opposed to those you can purchase over the counter (OTC) in department stores and supermarkets). These recommended professional products contain;-

  • higher levels of active ingredients to boost your skin’s health and correct skin problems 
    (OTC product lines have less active ingredients to minimise the chance of irritation to protect the buyer)
  • are backed by clinical studies 
    (not exaggerated unsubstantiated claims)
  • are made in small batches and distributed to trained or licensed skin care therapists, spas and salons to be supplied with professional advice on their use  
    (OTC products are made for the masses and sold in department stores and supermarkets) 
  • contain small molecule technology for dermal and epidermal penetration
    (OTC products that lack active ingredients, have large molecules which are not able to penetrate the skin. When a product can’t properly penetrate the skin, it will only “superficially” treat and temporarily provide relief to skin concerns. This gives the illusion that the products are working without actually treating the skin. Professional lines use molecular technology that penetrates the skin producing clinical results)
  • are packaged in airless pump packs to eliminate spoilage of ingredients  when exposed to the air
  • have pH balanced and adjusted ingredients – skin functions at its prime when the natural pH is between a 4.5 and 5.5.
    (Often OTC products don’t take pH into consideration and will leave the skin in an alkaline state. When the skin is alkaline, bacteria and free radicals (such as pollution) can invade the skin)
  • do not contain unnecessary fillers and preservatives

Professional skin care often has a reputation of being “too expensive” but that is more often than not actually far from the truth. A good professional line will price their products according to the concentration of active ingredients versus fillers and are actually overall more budget-friendly. It is a common mistake to overuse products which leads to the perception that professional skin care is more expensive. Our Skin Specialist will advise you on the appropriate amount and when to use the products according to your skin condition and type. When used properly, professional skin care products will last longer and work better giving you the ultimate bang for your buck. OTC products will have a lower upfront cost but over time can be similar in price or more expensive than professional skin care and won’t actually repair the skin condition being treated.
