Vitamin E is a Super Antioxidant

When I was younger, my Mother used to make us use this gel-like serum, or emulsion (I can’t describe the consistency), but it was sort of yellowish, and it was called: “Vitamin E Oil”
When I read that Tocopherol Acetate aka Vitamin E was also in Bella Terra Cosmetics’ Daily Moisturizer, and Anti-Wrinkle Cream, I got to wondering about it again;

What exactly does this oil do?

While it’s common knowledge that vitamin E is good for your skin, not that many people could tell you exactly what this nutrient does.
Vitamin E is an antioxidant that protects and repairs your skin.
According to WebMD; Antioxidants are agents that neutralize the oxidant effect of free radicals, which are molecules that damage collagen and cause skin dryness, fine lines and wrinkles.

How does the Vitamin E in Bella Terra Cosmetics Neutralize Antioxidants?

The atoms that comprise your body try to maintain an even number of electrons–that’s what makes them stable.

If an atom has an uneven number of electrons, it will steal an electron from another atom to become stable.
When your skin takes a beating from outside factors, such as the sun’s ultraviolet rays, your body can produce free radicals.
Free radicals are atoms with an uneven number of electrons, and when they form inside your body, they steal electrons from healthy cells like the ones that make up your skin. < According to Rice.edu;
Free Radicals stealing electrons from healthy cells can cause a damaging chain reaction (of oxidation), and that’s where antioxidants like vitamin E come in.

There are plenty of Antioxidant Rich products out there, Why Bella Terra’s Range

Vitamin E is one of the most powerful antioxidants, but your body can’t produce it.
Using Bella Terra’s Daily Moisturizer can help “prevent premature aging of your skin, and damage to your DNA,” and that’s according to AAD.org’s DR. Phillips.
Studies show that using vitamin E long term can even reduce sunburns from exposure to UVB radiation.

Wrinkles come from age, free radical damage, improper skin care and poor habits such as smoking and drinking alcohol in excess.
According to the book “Healing with Vitamins: the Most Effective Vitamin and Mineral Treatments for Everyday Health Problems and Serious Disease;” Vitamin E oil, that’s present in Bella Terra Cosmetics’ Anti-Wrinkle Cream prevents the formation of wrinkles by blocking free radical damage.
It treats wrinkles by boosting collagen production.
Collagen is a connective tissue that keeps skin elastic.
Vitamin E oil also treats wrinkles by supporting new skin cell growth and speeding up cell regeneration.

Using Bella Terra Cosmetics’ Anti-Wrinkle Cream as a Night Treatment

Vitamin E oil provides the skin with necessary moisture as well as antioxidants for intense healing. An intense vitamin E oil bedtime therapy is ideal for concentrated skin healing and preservation.
At night time, I like to combine Bella Terra Cosmetics’ Anti-Wrinkle Cream with olive oil for smooth application and added therapy.
Olive oil contains oleic acid, which makes skin more permeable and able to hold in necessary moisture.

Is Vitamin E only Good for Wrinkles?

Certainly not! Bella Terra Cosmetics has probably considered the benefits of Vitamin E, and that’s why they also happened to include it as an ingredient in their Daily Moisturizer

Water based, Phthalate Free, Sulphate and Paraben Free, Safe for Vegetarians.

If you’re like me, there are probably plenty of places that you’d love to use a product with “regenerating” properties. Take for instance scar tissue:
Scar tissue is stubborn skin that comes from burns, old wounds and surgeries.
The Vitamin E oil that is present in Bella Terra Cosmetics’ Daily Moisturizer is helpful for scar healing and prevention, because it goes beneath the surface of skin to block free radicals.
Free radicals are especially harmful to scar tissue because they prohibit healing.
Diane Irons, author of “911 Beauty Secrets: an Emergency Guide to Looking Great at Every Age, Size and Budget,” explains that the strong antioxidant power in vitamin E also aids in collagen production, which gives skin its elasticity and is not present in scar tissue.

What else can Bella Terra Cosmetics’ Daily Moisturizer do?

It’s pretty effective at dealing with Brown Spots on the skin

Firstly, you get Brown Spots on the skin due to aging, free radical damage and poor liver function. The Vitamin E oil that’s present in Bella Terra’s Daily Moisturizer prevents and repairs free radical damage. Not only does it fight free radicals, but it also helps to lighten and smooth the rough skin by lubricating cell membranes and encouraging cell regeneration.

Bella Terra Cosmetics’ Daily Moisturizer as a Hand Cream

The Vitamin E oil in Bella Terra’s Daily Moisturizer is also an effective treatment for dry, cracked cuticles.
After cleansing your hands, or during the course of the day, you can change the appearance, and feeling of your hands simply by applying a little to nails and cuticles, and well as hands.
The Daily Moisturizer helps to rehydrate and smooth your hands, nails, and cuticle, as well as prevent future cracks.

As I always say; If you’re not sure about anything, ask away: thatbeautyword(at)gmail(dot)com

Stay Beautiful!
