Most of us are well aware of the benefits of vitamin E for skin. The antioxidant properties of vitamin E protects and repairs skin. It also has anti-aging benefits as it stimulates collagen production and prevents free radicals damage. Using vitamin E everyday makes your skin youthful, vibrant, soft and glowing. Here I will give you step by step instructions on how to do a vitamin E rich facial treatment at home with natural ingredients.
Step 1: Almond Cleanser:
Almonds and other nuts are a rich store of vitamin E. Just ground some almonds finely into a powder and mix with besan flour. Make a paste using raw milk. Apply all over your face and massage slightly. Wash off and pat dry.
Step 2: Kiwi Exfoliator:
Blend half a kiwi and a spoon of yoghurt together. Massage on face concentrating on forehead, nose and chin areas. The seeds of kiwi act as an exfoliating agent. Kiwi fruit is a good source of vitamin E. Go for whole milk yoghurt as it has more vitamin E content.
Step 3: Basil Herbal Steaming:
Boil some water along with basil herbs which again provide vitamin E to your skin. Bend over the vessel and cover yourself with a blanket and steam your face for 10 minutes to clear pores and let the vitamin E penetrate inside.
Step 4: Banana Massage Cream:
You can use vitamin E cream added with some aloevera gel for massaging your face. The Body Shop has a good vitamin E cream, else you can also get from a pharmacist. If you prefer a fruit massage, mash some bananas and use for massaging as they are good sources of vitamin E.
Step 5: Mango Face Pack:
Prepare a face pack using mangoes. Mix mango pulp with fuller’s earth and honey. Apply all over face. Leave on for 20 minutes and relax. Wash off with lukewarm water followed by cold water to close the pores. Few fruits have vitamin E present in them. Kiwi, bananas and mangoes are among them.
Step 6: Green Tea Vitamin E Toner:
Make a homemade toner using a cup of green tea and a vitamin E capsule. This is a gentle, hydrating toner. Green tea too has little of vitamin E content.
Step 7: Vitamin E moisturizer:
Just cut open a vitamin E capsule and apply all over face. Leave it on overnight. It is best to do this facial treatment at night for effective results. When you wake up in the morning, you will find your face softer and radiant.
