On the forums, people told each other how to beautify the skin by using Vitamin E directly to make skin smooth. According to experts, this is a beautifying way to counter science and useless.
Vitamin E is not a panacea for beauty
PhD. Dr. Phan Bich Nga said: Vitamin E is a vitamin that is soluble in oil and is one of the essential vitamins needed for the good development of the human body.
The greatest effect is against free radicals for the body. In the process of living, the body will contact with chemicals, dust and aging, free radicals will attack the cell membrane, damaging the genetic components of the cell, inverting the structure and activity and decreasing the function of tissues in the body.
The destruction of the most common free radicals causes cardiovascular problems, cancer, nerve… The role of vitamin E is the prevention of cardiovascular problems, memory decline, cancer prevention and even joint degeneration problems in old age.
Vitamin E is also good for the regeneration of skin and tissues so people find that it is good for the skin. In fact, the results of the study find that vitamin E is good for the prevention of aging, but it was only necessary for people who are after 35 years old, beyond 40, 50, the elderly when the aging process is fast will have dry skin, and it is unnecessary for young people to use vitamin E.
Vitamins are abundant in our diet, in vegetable oils, soya-soya oil is more vitamin E than olive oil, wheat, barley, germinated seeds, beans, prices, fresh mushrooms.
Vitamin E is relatively well absorbed, vitamin E is usually absorbed 40-60% in the diet and in proportion to vitamin E in the ration, the less vitamin E in your diet is, the more the body absorbs. This is the body’s prudent mechanism to avoid redundancy.
Vitamin E is soluble in oil, unlike water-soluble vitamins such as vitamin B, C, excessive intake is excreted in the urine, and excess vitamin E deposits in the subcutaneous fat organization, it is not good for the body, if you use with high dose, this can cause poisoning.
In addition, excess vitamin E will lead to competition with other antioxidants in the body, damaging those substances.
Vitamin E should be used about 8-10mg/person for a day, children are under 7mg per day, pregnant women are plus 2mg more than normal people. It is recommended not to use with high dose, it should be used in the form of multi micron.
For better absorption, Vitamin E should be eaten with greasy and fatty foods, which is a solvent for vitamin E to be absorbed better. It is recommended that you take vitamin E supplements as a supplement after meals.
Dr. Phan Bich Nga said that the mistake of many people is to worship the vitamin E, think that it is a panacea, helping to rejuvenate and make the skin fat, fresh, so they use in the wrong dosage, high doses cause poisoning, gastrointestinal disorders such as nausea, diarrhea, neurological disorders, headache. Many years ago, many people died of vitamin E being injected into the vein, which is very dangerous.
Using vitamin E on your skin is unscientific
Dr. Phan Bich Nga also said that the use of vitamin E tablets to apply to the skin is unscientific because they want to be absorbed well, you have to put oil into vitamin E. Skin normally has a good amount of oil, and people with oily skin will clog pores and this is the cause of acne.
On the other hand, when applied to the face, vitamin E will be inactivated in the sun by the atmospheric oxygen. This is not to say that vitamin E tablets are sold in the market if they do not have expiry date or not genuine, the consequences will be harmful to the skin.
According to Dr. Phan Bich Nga, if you want to use vitamin E to beautify the skin, then use specialized products, skin creams of famous and reputable cosmetic companies, they will have the technology to extract Vitamin portion suitable for skin types.
