Vitamin E is an oldie but a definite goldie. Unlike the chemicals that have recently exploded onto the skincare scene, this one has been a silent hero for a long time now. And, guess what? Vit E is naturally occurring in Coconut Oil!
So, here are 5 reasons you should consider making some space for Vitamin E (and Organic Virgin Coconut Oil) in your skincare routine:
The skin can start aging pretty early. It’s a slow process that can set-in as early as 25 and accelerates through time. While some of us are super-comfortable with this process and are unbothered by its effects, most of us are more than happy to be slowing down this process and holding on to our youths for just a bit longer (count me in!). For all those young-at-heart-forever skincare aficionados: apply coconut oil 4-6 times a week to keep it super-healthy and keep the signs of aging at bay.
Helps heal cuts + scars:
A little Vit E can go a long way. Coconut Oil can be used topically to quickly heal minor cuts and improve the appearance of scars over a period of time.
We’re all about intensely hydrated, plump skin. Besides the regular internal intake of water and essential oils, hydration at the level of the skin can be achieved by religiously moisturising your skin every single day with a small dose of Vitamin E. Moisturisation is a step you do not want to be missing ever.
Massage your skin with a generous load of Organic Virgin Coconut Oil as soon as you step out of your shower and make sure you’re hitting it while it’s still damp. This will ensure that your skin locks in all the moisture for the longest time possible. Vitamin E will afford you a serious level of moisture and your skin will thank you for it!
Helps heal sun-damaged skin:
Free radicals are your skinemy (skin + enemy, get it?). They’ve been on the skincare hit list for as long as we can remember and Coconut Oil is just the ammunition you need to take them down. In particular, Vitamin E in Coconut Oil can help neutralise the free radicals that are caused by exposure to ultraviolet rays. So, if you’ve had a long day in the sun, slather on that Virgin Coconut Oil post-shower.
Boosts nail + hair health:
A lack of Vit E can lead to brittle nails and brittle, breakage-prone hair. There are two ways to tackle this: a. Apply Coconut Oil topically to nails and hair at-least twice a week. b. Consume a tablespoon of Organic Virgin Coconut Oil as part of your daily diet. You can add it in your smoothies, your coffee or just have it raw!To soak in Vitamin E in all its glory, you’ll want to pick a cold-pressed oil where all the nutrients are at their active best. The Coconut People’s Organic and Virgin Coconut oil has 3-4 times the antioxidants than that of regular coconut oil. So, pick up a bottle of our 100% Organic Virgin Coconut Oil here and luxuriate in all its Vit E benefits.
