The Grooming Manual
To stay healthy and feel your best, you need to regularly take in a variety of essential vitamins and nutrients. While you might typically think of vitamins as related to your diet, they're also critical for your skin's health.
Is skincare an important part of your daily routine? Want to get the best results from your products and ensure your skin stays wrinkle free for as long as possible?
Great! If so, it's important that you understand the skincare benefits of vitamin E for men.
What Is Vitamin E?
Vitamin E is an antioxidant that is found in nuts, whole grains, spinach, olive oil, sunflower oil, and other natural sources. It increases skin and red blood cell production, amongst many other functions in the body. You may see it on your skincare product's ingredients label as tocopherol.
What Are the Skincare Benefits of Vitamin E for Men?
Your skin needs vitamin E to look its best every day. Here are some of the benefits of using vitamin E in your skincare regimen.
Vitamin E contains anti-oxidants that neutralize free radicals, thus protecting your skin from early signs of aging like crow's feet, fine lines, and age spots. It has also been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects.
Reduces UV Damage
Vitamin E is able to absorb a portion of the sun's UV rays and prevent them from damaging your skin cells. Some UVB light can be neutralized by vitamin E, stopping it from worsening wrinkles, making age spots appear, and possibly even causing skin cancer.
But this partial protection doesn't mean that you don't need to use an SPF product as well - quite the opposite. Keep in mind that UVA light, which is also harmful to your skin, is not absorbed by vitamin E. That's why you need to use an SPF product specifically designed for broad spectrum UVA/B protection.
Daily Defense Face Moisturizer with SPF 20
Our Daily Defense Face Moisturizer is made with vitamin E to keep your skin moisturized and protected from UVB rays. But that's not all. To provide full broad spectrum protection for your skin, its formula also contains zinc oxide. This mineral is safe to use to prevent sun damage and photoaging without the potentially harmful side effects of some sunscreen ingredients.
Increases Skin Hydration
Using vitamin E helps ensure maximum skin hydration. That's important because skin dehydration can speed up and worsen the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Promising research also shows that vitamin E may help in speeding up the wound healing process, in part because of its hydrating effects.
How to Include Vitamin E in Your Skincare Routine
Because vitamin E is so important for your skin's health and appearance, it's a key ingredient in many of our skincare products. Use them in your routine to keep your skin smooth, well hydrated, and youthful.
Deep Moisture Body Lotion
Our natural Deep Moisture Body Lotion tightens and soothes even severely dry skin. Use it any time you need to hydrate, protect, and moisturize your skin. For guys with dry skin or who live in areas with dry conditions, we recommend applying lotion right after each shower. That will prevent chapping, cracking, and flaking.
Besides vitamin E - which is a main ingredient in our Deep Moisture Body Lotion - it also contains shea butter and jojoba.
Daily Essential Face Moisturizer
Nourishing your skin with vitamin E and other critical nutrients is a key step in slowing down the aging process. That's why we make our Daily Essential Face Moisturizer with these ingredients:
- Vitamin E
- Aloe Vera
- DMAE (Dimethylethanolamine)
- Green Tea Extract
Use it each morning and evening after washing your face for the best results. When applied consistently, our moisturizer helps slow the development of wrinkles and ensures your skin stays well hydrated all throughout the day.
Revitalizing Anti-Aging Cream
Want to step up your anti-aging efforts without causing needless irritation or redness? In that case, our Revitalizing Anti-Aging Cream is right for you. Its natural formula reduces fine lines, wrinkles, and crow's feet while also helping correct pigmentation issues.
In addition to vitamin E, it's also made with DMAE (Dimethylethanolamine), MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane), and hyaluronic acid - all of which contribute to firmer, smoother, more youthful skin. For the best results, use it each evening before bed.
Smooth Brushless Shave Cream
Shave irritation is a major issue for many men, along with ingrown hairs and razor burn. But you can resolve the majority of these concerns by improving your shave technique and using our Smooth Brushless Shave Cream. It's made with vitamin E, glycerin, jojoba, and aloe vera.
What makes our shave cream different? Instead of relying on tiny bubbles of air to lubricate your skin while shaving, it's made with a rich, creamy formula of naturally hydrating ingredients. This minimizes irritation and leaves your skin hydrated, calm, and smooth after each shave.
Enjoy the Skincare Benefits of Vitamin E
Make sure vitamin E is a part of your skincare routine. That way you'll enjoy its many benefits for men - including improved skin hydration, protection from some UV damage, and anti-aging effects.
