La vitamine E pour illuminer la peau.

Vitamin E, an ingredient that brightens the skin.

Vitamin E is a naturally occurring, fat-soluble substance. This antioxidant can limit the damage caused by free radicals to the body's cells. The body stores Vitamin E in the epidermis, dermis, and sebaceous glands. Among its many benefits when applied topically, it notably helps to brighten dull complexions.

Why do we sometimes have a dull complexion?

A dull complexion is characterized by a lack of uniformity and brightness, a grayish color, and an irregular skin texture. This phenomenon is scientifically explained by an imbalance in skin renewal and an excess of dead cells that accumulate on the surface. The causes can be internal (lack of sleep, poor blood circulation, skin aging process, hormonal upheaval) and external (stress, cold, pollution, smoking, poorly performed makeup removal/skin cleansing, excessive exposure to UV rays, excessive alcohol consumption...).

How does Vitamin E work to brighten the complexion?

To regain a radiant complexion, incorporating vitamin E into your beauty routine is recommended. Applying this compound to the face helps promote blood circulation. By gently massaging during application, vitamin E will enhance the microcirculation of blood and lymphatic fluid.

Furthermore, a lack of radiance can also be the result of skin deterioration due to external aggressions. Vitamin E protects the skin from these aggressions, such as UV rays and pollution, which generate an excess of free radicals. Numerous studies have demonstrated the antioxidant properties of Vitamin E when applied topically. From a chemical perspective, the free hydroxyl function carried by the aromatic ring of this compound captures free radicals and stabilizes them by providing the missing electron. As a result, these radicals become less reactive and no longer degrade the compounds present at the cellular level of the skin.

Furthermore, the antioxidant action of Vitamin E is greatly enhanced when it is combined with Vitamin C in the same skincare product.We have therefore incorporated these two vitamins into ourfirmness & radiance complex, whichprovides both preventive and corrective action against the appearance of aging signs. The epidermis is toned, and the complexion is even and luminous.
