Vitamin E is present in Kaeme Skincare products however, you may know little about this nutrient. Are you wondering what it does for your skin? Vitamin E falls in the antioxidant family. It’s fat-soluble, an essential nutrient with anti-inflammatory properties. Because of this property, it is famously used to soothe burns.
Vitamin E: Why does your skin need it?
It provides photo-protection to the skin by absorbing UV light. UV Light, natural or artificial, when exposed to for a long time, can cause sunburns. Exposure to UV rays can also cause premature skin ageing and signs of sun damage such as wrinkles, leathery skin, or liver spots.
We always advise #KaemeLovers to apply Kaeme Sheabutter before they hit the sheets, because, Kaeme Shea butter has a thick consistency and it’s best to use overnight so it can fully be absorbed. The night is a vital time to renew your skin. Adding a moisturizer before bed creates a softer, more hydrated and better-looking skin the following morning.
Again, because it is an antioxidant, it fights the effects of free radicals produced by the break down of foods and pollutants in the environment effectively.
