Are you feeling overwhelmed with new steps being added every day to the skincare routine? Not sure what your skin needs? Let us talk about the new antioxidant superhero in town which is a miracle ingredient for your skin and tell you why it should be your new BFF when it comes to skincare.
If you thought Vitamin E was only vital in our diet then you will be surprised to know that its presence in our skincare products is equally important. Vitamin E, also known as tocopherol, is a group of fat-soluble compounds. Out of the eight different forms it exists in, alpha-tocopherol is the most common one. It is a potent antioxidant that protects the skin by fighting off free radicals that result from daily environmental stressors like sun exposure and air pollution. It also works effectively to hydrate as it is both a humectant and an emollient. As a humectant, Vitamin E helps attract and absorb water into the skin, and as an emollient, it prevents moisture loss.
Our skin comes in contact with free radicals on a daily basis. These are the external stressors such as UV rays, dust or pollution that cause fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and sagging skin all resulting in premature ageing. Vitamin E can help reduce the visible signs of ageing and slow down this process altogether. By combating oxidative stress which is a major cause of the deterioration of the skin’s collagen layer, it minimises the damaging effects caused by these free radicals and gives youthful-looking skin. Its antioxidant properties also support collagen production to maintain skin elasticity and firmness.
Skin conditions like acne or eczema can result in skin irritation and inflammation. Anti-inflammatory properties found in Vitamin E can help soothe this irritated skin, and reduce redness as well as the symptoms resulting from such conditions.
Vitamin E plays a key role in speeding up the healing process of damaged skin. Its antioxidant properties help remove dark spots, minimise the appearance of scars, aid in cell regeneration, and gradually improve the overall tone and texture of the skin.
Nobody wants dry and dull skin. Thanks to Vitamin E’s ability to act as both a humectant and emollient, it helps to restore and retain the moisture levels of the skin. This strengthens the skin’s barrier, reduces moisture loss and maintains its adequate hydration levels. This improves the texture of the skin, leaving it radiant, healthy and soft. After all, hydrated skin is happy skin!
These benefits are reasons to believe that incorporating Vitamin E into your skincare routine can be a game-changer. At the time of buying a skin care product, apart from looking for Vitamin E also look for other ingredients such as Sweet Almond Oil, which is rich in vitamins. A mighty ingredient, Sweet Almond Oil is a powerhouse of vitamins such as A, D, E, K and omega fatty acids. These components are essential nourishment for the skin that helps it heal, regenerate new cells and retain moisture. By being loaded with Vitamin E, the Sweet Almond Oil keeps the skin cells healthy, moisturised and supple.
The easiest and most effective way to introduce this superhero ingredient in your skincare regime is through a Vitamin E serum for face. Sandiva’s Overnight Revitalising Super Serum is a powerful serum that works its magic while you sleep. Packed with the goodness of both Vitamin E and Sweet Almond Oil, this anti-ageing serum is ultra-hydrating and helps in cellular regeneration as well as skin brightening. Besides these, this night serum is the first skincare product in India to use Patchouli extracts that contain CB2 activators. These activators boost your skin’s collagen density to decrease fine lines and the appearance of wrinkles. They also immediately soothe irritation and improve its barrier function.
The Overnight Revitalising Super Serum shows the best results when applied before bed. After cleansing your skin (we recommend using Sandiva’s Unsoap Bathing Bar - a cleanser for both your face and body) apply a small amount of serum evenly all over your face and neck. Gently massage it into your skin until it is fully absorbed. Pair it with Sandiva’s morning serum for maximum benefit.
This superhero ingredient is key to flawless skin. It's time to add Vitamin E to your daily skincare routine and give your skin the nourishment it deserves. Shop for the Overnight Revitalising Super Serum on Sandiva's website and don't forget to check out their entire range of skincare products!
