Kate's Cosmetic Case

Here is the latest addition to my cosmetics case.  I am always eager to try new products that will help keep my skin looking healthy and I may have just found the secret potion!

WHAT:
Nature's Bounty Vitamin E Oil (30,000iu/bottle)

WHY:
Vitamin E is an antioxidant that promotes immune function (huh, ironically I actually have a cold...so, hmmm).  It also helps support cardiovascular health.  Vitamin E is naturally found on the outer-most skin surface where it provides protection and encourages the reparation of damaged skin.

The antioxidant properties of vitamin E protect your skin from free radicals- the culprits that breakdown collagen and elastin, causing skin to sag and wrinkle.

HOW:
Every morning I fill up my Camelbak with 750ml of water topped off with about five drops of Vitamin E Oil and sip it throughout the day.

RESULTS:
It's been less than a week and I can 100% see a difference.  One morning I woke up and my skin actually felt oily (new for me as I tend to fall on the "dry skin" side of the scale).  While my skin felt a little oily, it didn't feel greasy or clogged.  I also have very fine wrinkles under my eyes and since using the Vitamin E oil, they've filled out a bit- in other words, the skin seems softer and less inclined to wrinkle when I smile.

This is definitely a keeper.  I am excited to see what this will do for my perpetually dry hands and skin come winter time!
