Vitamin E on face as overnight treatment.
Vitamin E oil can be used on your face as an overnight anti-aging treatment. Since vitamin E has a thick consistency, it’s best to apply it before bed so that it can fully absorb.
If applied in the morning, you may have difficulty putting makeup or serums on top of it.
Typically, you can apply a serum or oil mixture containing vitamin E as an all-over treatment on your face. This is different than using vitamin E to spot-treat a blemish, using a beauty treatment mask for a brief period of time, or taking an oral supplement that contains vitamin E.
Applying vitamin E as an anti-aging or skin-conditioning agent overnight involves letting the product completely absorb into your skin.
Most over-the-counter anti-aging creams contain between .05 and 1 percent Trusted Source vitamin E as one of their active ingredients.
Look for a product with a high concentration of vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol is often the ingredient name), or search for pure vitamin E oil.
How to apply vitamin E oil to your face as an overnight treatment:
- Wash your face clean of any makeup or other skin products. Rinse your face afterward with lukewarm water, and pat your skin dry.
- Apply the mixture or the vitamin E serum of your choice to your skin using your fingers. Rub your face in small circular motions as you apply the treatment so that you stimulate circulation and spread the product out as far as it will go.
- Wait at least 20 minutes after application before resting your face on a pillow or any other surface. This treatment is best repeated once or twice a week as part of a skin care routine about 30 minutes before bedtime
