Vitamin E is great for the skin. It helps smooth, hydrate, soothe and remove blemishes.

Below we go over how you can use vitamin E on face overnight.

How to Use Vitamin E Capsules on Face

1. Extract the Oil

Take 3 vitamin E capsules and place them on a paper towel. Poke a tiny hole on each capsule using a needle and then squeeze out the oil therein into a cup. Once you’re done add one teaspoon of olive oil into the cup and stir until the vitamin E is more pliable. This will allow you to apply it more easily on your skin.

2. Clean Your Face

You want to make sure your face is clean and dry before applying the oil. This is because dirt and oil on your face will make the vitamin E less effective as it won’t penetrate the skin. Wash your face with soap and water and dry it with a towel till its dry. Make sure all make up is off.

3. Get Your Hair Out of The Way

If you have long hair and it touches your face, you will need to get it out of the way. Pull or tie it back using a hair tie or hair clip.

4. Apply onto Your Face

Using your fingers, dab the oil around your forehead, eyes and mouth. If you find it too sticky, add some more olive oil or use a tissue or brush to apply. This helps deal with and prevent facial wrinkles. Research has shown that vitamin E is an excellent solution to fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Leave vitamin e on face overnight.

5. Rinse and Dry Your face

When you wake up, use water to rinse off the oil. If it doesn’t come off easy, use a gentle cleanser. Use a clean towel to dry your face. Make sure to replace the towel after every few uses to prevent the buildup of bacteria.  

Note: It might take a few months of applying vitamin E daily to achieve the desired results.
