The summer might be almost over - but the sun is still shining brightly, and will be for weeks to come! You’ve probably been protecting your skin from harmful UV rays with sunscreens, umbrellas, and hats, and healing your skin with aloe vera gel or a natural moisturizer and toner. However, there’s another small trick you might not have considered yet: a little wonder called vitamin E.
For the remainder of the summer (and even in the colder months), especially if you’re going to be spending a lot of time in the sun, vitamin E should definitely be included in your daily activities and travel bags. Vitamin E has powerful antioxidant properties, making it vital in protecting skin cells from harmful UV light, environmental pollutants, lipid oxidation, drugs, and other elements that contribute to the production of cell-damaging free radicals.
So, what exactly do free radicals do? One of the common dangers of free radicals is premature aging. Since vitamin E is an antioxidant, protecting against free radicals, this means that vitamin E not only protects skin from harmful elements, but actually keeps skin looking and feeling healthy and younger – and who doesn’t want that? This means that your skin can keep that healthy, fresh, sun-kissed glow through the remainder of the summer and into the coming months!
Another danger of free radicals is that they can lead to the development of various disorders, such as cardiovascular disease or even cancer. Vitamin E is your way to protect yourself from the damaging effects of free radicals. Enjoy your days in the sunshine while they’re still here, and let vitamin E help you out! And don’t forget to include it when you jet away in the colder months to go on vacation… you’ll come back looking fresher than ever.
Come into Goodness Me! and ask about vitamin E!
