My Husband and I have had good experiences with Vitamin E oil. When he was younger he had a hot water radiator accident. When the cap was removed all the gushing hot water came rushing out and shot up and burned him on his shoulder. He used Vitamin E oil on the burn and you could never tell that he was ever burned there.
My experience with Vitamin E oil has been great. This previous summer I burned my hand really bad when I was cooking. I was nervous to cook for a couple of weeks after it happened. My first response was cold water and sleeping with my hand in a bucket of ice. The area that got burned turned black. I put Vitamin E oil on the burn day and nite. I wrapped the burn in an ace bandage. I do not have any marks on my hand from the burn and I am very thankful for the Vitamin E.

Vitamin E was discovered in 1922. It received its name in 1924 and the scientific name is tocopherol. Vitamin E is a fat soluble nutrient that acts like an antioxidant in the human body. Synthetic versions have been found to be ½ effective, that was found in research.

If you have a problem with cold sores Vitamin E is good for preventing them. I can't speak from experience with this because I don't get cold sores but there have been studies done and people have reported relief by using Vitamin E oil. It can also be used as a lip balm to keep your lips smooth and crust free. Vitamin E oil can also be used on your face if you don't have overly oily skin. It helps with small lines and crows feet.

Vitamin E oil can be used for sunburns. Many sunscreens have Vitamin E as an ingredient. I can testify to this after a few days of desert fun. I was so red and my skin was on fire. I was Vitamin Eeeeed up and very shiny. It really did help soothe the pain of the burn and I could walk without the owie, owie, owie. It can also provide protection from more sun exposure or prevent from getting a sun burn all together. The Vitamin E is absorbed by the epidermis layer of the skin and heals the damage by the Ultra Violet Radiation.

For dry skin, Vitamin E prevents water loss from the skin and helps with retaining natural moisture. You can re- invent your dry skin and make it look healthy and well moisturized. Vitamin E helps with the production of two important protein components collagen and elastin. Improving the skins elasticity. While this process is taking place the Vitamin E is softening the skin as well. This reduces the visibility of age spots and troubling lines and wrinkles. Vitamin E is a main ingredient in many anti-aging creams and lotions on the market. It can also be used on different type of scars (including pimple scars). It will do this by lightning up the scar or mark left behind by the injured area and/or pimples. The scar will continue to fade over time. Vitamin E speeds up the process of regeneration of skin cells and are replaced with new ones. This helps get rid of the scar tissue.

There is relief for itchy stretch marks from Vitamin E oil. You can also prevent stretch marks and if you already have them just apply the Vitamin E oil to get rid of them. It helps the targeted area grow new skin cells and helps restore natural elastic properties. Vitamin E oil can help skin conditions such as: Psoriasis and Eczema.
