Studies indicate that vitamin E performs these functions when applied topically. It is also a photoprotectant, and it helps protect the cellular membrane from free radical damage.

As a moisturizer, vitamin E is well absorbed through the skin, demonstrating a strong affinity with small blood vessels. It is also considered to improve the skin’s water- binding ability.

This vitamin is also believed to help maintain the connective tissue. There is also evidence that vitamin E is effective in preventing irritation due to sun exposure.
