    Default Vitamin E Cures Skin Conditions

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    Orthomolecular Medicine News Service, January 23, 2008
    Vitamins Cure Skin Conditions

    (OMNS Jan 23, 2008) Skin troubles are a common, often painful problem. Topical applications of vitamin E, and/or vitamin C and niacin provide rapid relief. The first reports indicating that vitamin E, and concentrated topical and IV solutions of vitamin C were a highly effective treatment for burns surfaced over 50 years ago. Vitamins may be used to treat both thermal burns and sun burns, as well as wrinkles, pigmentation, scrapes, bug bites, and even bed sores.
    Foods alone do not provide sufficient vitamins to provide maximum healing. Vitamins also provide protection against skin-aging damage caused by exposure to the sun. The benefits of vitamin C and niacin have been proven in numerous controlled clinical trials using high potency vitamin C and niacin creams. [1-9] The scientific literature contains at least 29 reports published since 2003 using niacin creams and 8 using vitamin C creams. Even before the Korean War, orthomolecular physicians were reporting topical vitamin E to be a superior treatment for burns. [10] Recent research conforms this. [11, 12]
    Linus Pauling reviewed the scientific literature on burns in his book "How to Live Longer and Feel Better." In the two decades since publication of this book, claims about burns have been tested and confirmed. [13-20] One animal study confirmed that, in severely burned animals treated with IV vitamin C, high intravenous doses of vitamin C are required to optimize burn treatment, equivalent to 120,000 mg/day for a human. [21]
    Vitamin skeptics continue to argue that there are no proven benefits to vitamins at doses higher than the RDA. The case of vitamins and skin conditions is a clear case proving the skeptics wrong. It is time that physicians start to put the remarkable healing powers of vitamins to work for their patients. In the meantime, the low toxicity and ready availability of vitamin supplements and creams enables the self-educated to act for themselves.

    In the very old days we used to use it after surgery to prevent scarring.
    After the dressing was off we used to open a capsule of Vitamin E and rub it on the incision to prevent scarring.

    When I had my hysterectomy I rubbed it on my incision every day and have no scar.

    I had a fatty lump taken out of my right breast, forgot the Vitamin E, and have a scar.

    Some studies have also shown the caring effects of vitamin E in cosmetics for acne and scars treatment as well as for promoting healing of eczema, burns, and other skin ailments. When vitamin E-containing products are applied to the skin, they are believed to promote curing, protecting cells from reducing itchiness and free-radical damage. Many people today use vitamin E cosmetics to ensure the most favorable skin health and inhibit oxidation processes and signs of aging.

    Vitamin E most definitely has many healing properties, and is really just as useful to use topically as it is to take orally. It's great for burns and a wide variety of skin irritations. And it is definitely still used today to prevent scarring and scar tissue. When my daughter had a surgery performed by a plastic surgeon, he recommended that we massage the scar daily with vitamin E or some similar cream containing vitamin E. I think that vitamin E straight from the capsule is the most efficient and the cheapest method for preventing scars. Vitamin E is also great for things like chapped lips, burns, and wounds. It's great to take the capsules orally as well, since it is a powerful antioxidant and can be beneficial for a variety of things.

    Vitamin E oil is excellent for fading acne scars especially those pigmentation scars that often take weeks or even months to go away by themselves.

    No doubt about it. Vitamin E is very beneficial for us and specially for our skin. But If you take vitamin E in large amount it goes dangerous for you. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that may be effective at reducing UV damage in skin. Many People in the United States don't have to enhance their eating routine with extra Vitaman E. Eating nourishment's wealthy in this supplement is regularly enough to help skin well-being. Vitamin E is not a single vitamin, but rather a group of fat-soluble vitamins with antioxidant effects.
