Vitamin E = glowing complexion...

I do my best to drink the prescribed buckets loads of water a day - the fact I sit close to the water filter at work no doubt helps me out with this, but like most girls I always feel my skin isn't quite good enough.

The other day I visited a friend I hadn't seen a while, and she was positively glowing.
Pregnant? No.
Amazing new foundation? No, no make up at all actually.

So why was she looking so gorgeous? She told me she'd been taking Vitamin E tablets for a while - no other change to her diet or to her skincare routine and she put it down to this.

So - I followed suit. And, do you know what - I really feel like it's doing my skin some good.

Sifting through the internet to try and find out more on the benefits and dangers of taking vitamin E, brings back all sorts of encouraging (and scary results) but as far as I can tell so long as you don't take more than the recommended dose and are healthy then it's ok.

Anyone else take it? Heard anything about it?

  1. I've not taken tablets but I use a Vit E night cream every night which always leaves my skin moisturized and radiant x

  2. You should eat more capers, they've got some vitamin E in their little bodies..........hahahaha! Sorry!! I know about the cosmetic properties of vit E , but I think that vitamin E deficiency is not that common if you eat correctly (olive oil, nuts, whole grains, eggs...) but, what exactly are the cons? I just found on a site that it can cause breast enlargement, surely that's a good thing for pancakes like me ;))??? Anyways, keep us updated on the condition of your skin! As for me, I should definitely glug more water, I'm terrible about that. xx

  3. I've heard this and tried taking vitamins with a high dose of Vitamin E in it, but never took it long enough to notice a different. Glad it's doing something great for you!

  4. I agree with Anna, I should also drink more water and maybe then start thinking about vitamin E... Glad you found something that works for you! xxx
