Tips for ParentBy Onlymyhealth Editorial Team / 2016-05-03T00:00:00+5:30
Vitamin E or alpha-tocopherol is a fat-soluble antioxidant that is predominantly found in green leafy vegetables, nuts and seeds, seafood, and fruits. It helps fight sunburn and protects the skin from harmful ultraviolet rays. Some clinical studies suggest that Vitamin E is effective in removing scars. One study reveals that topical application of vitamin E before and after surgery is helpful in reducing scar mark. Research on its effectiveness in treating scars is, however, inconclusive. Regular application of vitamin E oil makes your skin soft and improves blood circulation. It is also known to boost the process of collagen synthesis making skin firm and wrinkle free. You can apply vitamin E directly on the acne scars or you may use vitamin E capsules. Take vitamin E capsules and extract oil from them by piercing the capsule with a needle. Then wash your face with water and apply the oil on the affected area. For best results, use it regularly.
