Vitamin E: antioxidant benefits

The solution to fight free radicals which, when too numerous, attack your precious epidermis cells? Antioxidants, the beneficial molecules that stop oxidation and therefore premature skin aging.

The centre of attention: vitamin E, a natural antioxidant with anti aging virtues, which blocks the action of free radicals on the skin and offers skin protection by reducing cellular damage due to too much UV exposure.

Any other skin protection properties? This vitamin also contributes towards maintaining the skin's elasticity and hydration. It even offers anti inflammatory action (which is particularly welcome when you have sunburn!).

Plenty of Vitamin E for skin that glows

Beautiful skin begins on your plate, when it comes to nutrients and minerals. So, drizzle your dishes and salads with vegetable oils rich in vitamin E. The must-have products according to food and beauty enthusiasts are wheat germ oil, argan oil, sunflower oil and grapeseed oil.

You should also fill your shopping basket with varied fruit and vegetables, such as avocado, asparagus, spinach, berries and even dried fruit.

Meanwhile, opt for face care with formulas that include vitamin E. Whether in a serum or a cream, they will provide skin protection and fight environmental aggressors like pollution, tobacco and UV rays all day long. The result: younger looking skin.
