7 Ways To Use Vitamin E Oil

    Vitamin E oil is one of the best products to keep in your bathroom cabinet. You will find that it can help solve and soothe many common health and beauty issues, and using it is typically as easy as dabbing it onto your skin. You can find vitamin E oil at most health and beauty stores as well as drug and big box stores, and once you work it into your beauty routine you may never find yourself again without it. If you are curious about how vitamin E oil can help you, take a peek below at 7 ways to use vitamin E oil in your own home.

1. Moisturize your skin.

You can actually use vitamin E in place of your daily moisturizer. You can dab the oil on (a little goes a long way) to your face concentrating on especially dry areas. Once a day should be more than enough, and once it starts to work you can even skip a day between uses. If you wish, you can even add a few drops to your daily moisturizer to help boost its power.

2. Lighten up dark spots.

Sun, aging, and other elements can cause dark spots on the skin. You can use a few drops of vitamin e oil daily to help lighten up these spots. It will provide moisture and replenish the skin, so the darkness can start to fade away. If you experience skin discoloration after tanning, using vitamin on the dark areas can help even out the skin tone.

3. Banish wrinkles.

Who wants to live with wrinkles? You don’t have to! All you need is a few drops of vitamin E. Vitamin e oil is one of the best oils for banishing wrinkles! Dab a little around the wrinkles that have started to form on the sides of your eyes and mouth. Massage it well into the creases and over time the area will plump and soften which can help beat the appearance of these wrinkles.

4. Minimize stretch marks.

You can use vitamin e on your stomach skin during pregnancy to soften the skin and help prevent stretch marks from doing too much damage. If you already have stretch marks, no worries. Applying vitamin E to the areas can help soften, moisturize, and plump the skin and help reduce the appearance of the marks.

5. Soothe dry nails.

If you have dry nail beds, rough cuticles, or dry hands, vitamin E is great for softening and moisturizing the skin. Many nail salons use vitamin E when giving manicures, as it can really help with dry and cracking skin issues.

6. Repair your hair.

Vitamin E applied to the dry and damaged ends of your hair can help with the appearance. It can also help with heat damage that has been done to your hair. Add some vitamin E oil to your conditioning products to help boost their potential. Or, just get into the habit of applying a few drops to split ends daily.

7. Soothe minor skin issues.

Vitamin E can be applied to minor cuts, scrape, burns, sores, cold sores, and other minor skin irritations and issue. It will help moisturize which can promote healing, and can offer an overall soothing feeling which can keep you from touching or furthering the damage of the skin.

  1. I have never used vitamin E oil. I have heard great things about it for the skin though.

  2. I’m going to try it on the little fine lines around my eyes. I could use a little plumping there. 😉

  3. How powerful vitamin E is! I had not clue about it being so good to help with stretch marks.

  4. I didn’t realize that Vitamin E had so any benefits to it. I never would have thought o the hair benefits to it as well as the skin benefits.

  5. I use Vitamin E oil all the time and it does wonders! It is also great for hair too as a conditioner!

  6. Karlyn Flores says

    I never use Vitamin E but it sounds really good for me, I want to try this for my fine lines.

  7. The dry nails for sure! Winter is finally ending here and my nails are killing me!

  8. It is so amazing! I never knew it had a positive effect against stretchmarks! Will try

  9. Amen to removing stretch marks! After three kids I can use all the help I can get in that area 🙂 I love vitamin E oil for moisturizing my skin. I need some serious help in the winter.

  10. Megan mccoig says

    I’m always looking for at home treatments, kind of similar to DIY beauty. Never knew that vitamin E oil had so many amazing uses – will try it out!

  11. I heard about the benefits of using vitamin E, but I never thought it has so many beneficial uses. Thanks for sharing this informative post. I’d love to try it often more for different purposes.

  12. CourtneyLynne says

    Vitamin E is wonderful! I had surgery a few years ago and my doctor suggested me taking Vitamin D to prevent scarring and to soften skin…

  13. I rub it on cuticles when I can remember. Definitely helps in this dry weather. I tried it on hair once, but it made my hair so oily. I probably didn’t do it right. I should try again.

  14. Did you say banish wrinkles? I am going to have to try it. I never realized there were so many uses for vitamin E. 🙂

  15. Allyson Becker says

    I had no idea that Vitamin E could help stretch marks. Wow! You taught me a lot.

  16. I used to use Vitamin E in college, and had forgotten all about it. I think I need to try it on a couple of chicken pox marks that don’t seem to want to go away (yes. I got chicken pox at age 42. For the first time. After having had the vaccine. But it’s all good 😉 )

  17. Vitamin E oil brings back childhood memories. The lil’ capsules or a small body of it was always in the house when I was a kid, and the scent is something that triggers memories of my old home. I might have to start using some on my split ends.

  18. I have used vitamin e for my stretch marks during pregnancy also for scars. It helps lighten them. I am definitely going to be trying the wrinkle one though.

  19. I realized a few years ago that taking vitamin E regularly was actually protecting me from sunburn! I have very fair, VERY burnable skin, and have always had to be very careful in the sun. But when I started taking vitamin E to help my body absorb other oil supplements, I noticed I never burned. Did some research, and it seems the E was to thank! Now I always take it!

  20. What brand of vitamin e is good/best, or it doesnt matter.
