Quick Beauty Tip: Drugstore Vitamin-E Oil Vs. The Fancy Stuff

It’s no secret that vitamin E is super healthy for your body and skin thanks to its antioxidant properties. You’ll find it’s often a nourishing ingredient in lip balms, but lately we’ve been seeing some great skin care results from the natural product in its purest form. It all started when we tried out a super fancy face oil, one like Bobbi Brown’s Extra Face Oil, which retails for a fairly pricey $60. We kind of prefer the straight vitamin E-only drugstore variety, however (which is also helpful if you’re allergic to nuts—facial oils blended by beauty companies will often be a mix including almond extract or oil). Dabbing a bit on has helped clear up acne slightly, but better yet, helps it heal faster. After a few weeks of treatment, a few of our brown sun spots have faded noticeably. (Sunscreen, always!) Best yet, a bottle from the vitamin section will cost you less than $20, and keeps for ages. (Kind of like oil for the Chanukah lamp that you think is only going to last for a little bit, but instead lasts forever!) [$14.56, MaxVite]
