You can use Vitamin E capsules on your skin. Vitamin E is an excellent anti-aging ingredient for the skin and it promotes cellular regenerations so it helps healing of the skin. The other great thing about Vitamin E capsules is that there are other plant oils that are great for the skin that are rich in Vitamin E but Vitamin E capsules are so widely available you can even pick them up when you're traveling. If you're using Vitamin E for your skin, you want to make sure the bottle specifies that it's natural Vitamin E and not synthetic which has actually been linked to cell damage. Vitamin E gel caps can simply be split open with a knife and the oil inside can be applied directly to the skin. Vitamin E is irritating to some skin types so make sure you do a patch test first.
