I have been battling with break outs since time immemorial. I have found remedies that worked for quite some time, but I needed something permanent. I was on the brink of depression, to put it bluntly.
Ever since I turned twenty-three, I have noticed a dramatic change to my skin. It was getting a lot more oily, I can see hints of wrinkles, and pimples kept popping out of nowhere!
I’ve tried so hard to continuously stick to my skin care routine. I even invested so much on a variety of skin care products that I honestly don’t even use anymore. I basically did everything I could, but I felt like the break outs never stopped!
Can you imagine how frustrating that is?
Then, one day, my mom introduced me to Vitamin E.
I’ve heard of it before, but I never really cared that much; However, since I was literally desperate for any kind of solution, I decided to try it out.
I took one soft gel a day, every day, for one week. I wasn’t expecting anything big, but lo’ and behold, I’ve noticed that I haven’t had any break outs whatsoever!
I didn’t want to be too gullible, so I tried to see if it would last me the whole month. I stuck to the regimen religiously, hoping that it was really working. It may be hard to believe, but I haven’t had a break out episode in almost three months now, not even when I was having my pre-menstrual period.
If you’re wondering what Vitamin E is, here are a few facts:
- Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin, along with Vitamins A, D, and K. That means it’s stored in our fats, so it’s not easily discarded by our body.
- It’s also known as Alpha-tocopherol, tocopherol, or tocotrienol. It contains one of the most potent antioxidant.
- It protects the body from damage caused by unstable substances called free radicals that can harm cells, tissues, and organs.
- With respect to menopausal women, Vitamin E has proven extremely effective in reducing vaginal dryness and combating hot flushes.
- Vitamin E in lotions, creams, and other skin care products, as well as taken orally, helps skin look younger. The recommended skin lotions and creams by many experts are those that contain the alcohol form of vitamin e (alpha-tocopherol) instead of the acetate form (alpha-tocopherol acetate). The acetate form does not penetrate the skin’s surface well.
- The recommended dietary allowance of vitamin E is just 15 mg to 20 IU per day. With this low amount it is fully possible to get sufficient amounts of vitamin E from food alone. When vitamin E is prescribed for healthy adults it is typically prescribed in 200 to 800 IU doses.
- Rich dietary sources for Vitamin E are margarine, salad dressings, shortenings, green leafy vegetables, wheat germ, whole grain products, liver, egg yolk, nuts, seeds, soybean oil, sunflower oil, corn bean oil, and other polyunsaturated plant oils.
I am currently taking Alaska Life Natural Vitamin E dietary supplement. One soft gel has 400 IU of Vit. E. It contains 100 soft gels per bottle and it only costs 150 pesos. They are available at Long Win Merchandising store at Tabunok, Talisay City, Cebu and at the Metro Ayala Pharmacy. So far, these are the only two areas I know, where you can purchase the Alaska Life Vitamin E supplements.
There are several things to consider if you want to start taking Vitamin E on a daily basis. Make sure that you see your doctor if you have any conditions or diseases that might be aggravated by taking this supplement. It is fairly safe to take this because it’s a vitamin, but we should all take the necessary precautions.
