Q: What role does vitamin E play in skin care? Should I apply vitamin E oil directly to my skin? Should I take a supplement?
MyChelle Dermaceuticals licensed esthetician Catie Wiggy responds:
A: Vitamin E is an antioxidant that works to protect cells—including skin cells—from the damaging effects of free radicals. Found naturally in many foods, such as avocados, nuts and vegetable oil, vitamin E is important to include in your daily diet—for overall health and to help protect the health and appearance of your skin.
