Vitamin E which is widely used in moisturisers and creams is a well known home remedy for clearing up scars. In fact, many have said that a little vitamin E dabbed on the skin can also remove stretch marks, and even heal wounds. But some studies have also refuted such claims and that the scar-busting properties of vitamin E are overstated.
Well, I suppose the only way to prove this is to test the vitamin on ourselves. And I recently read that Paris Beaverbanks, whom I’ve featured before but has gone to start a new blog My Women Stuff, has been using pure vitamin E oil to moisturise her face.
While her results was nothing related to scar healing, it was nonetheless amazing after just one week of usage of the oil only in the night as she found it too rich to be used during the day.
The immediate result I noticed was the lightening of the lines around my mouth, what is known as “laugh lines”. I had quite prominent laugh lines, but after about a week, they are now barely noticable. The slightly deeper lines will take longer, but any fine lines I have seem to have evened themselves out a bit.
Wow, isn’t that something?
The two brands that Paris recommends are Colonial Dames Vitamin E Oil and Organic Aid Vitamin E Oil. You can read her full review of both products at her blog.
In fact, I’ve to say that I’m really tempted to try vitamin E oil on the dryer parts of my face after reading her review.
