Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that plays an important role when it comes to fighting against damaging free radicals that promote the aging process and speed the appearance of wrinkles, dark Circles under eye , and fine lines. A good, vitamin E enriched eye cream should be a part of every skin care regime, as vitamin E has proven itself to be indispensable when it comes to protecting and repairing skin.

The human body doesn't produce vitamin E on its own so, when skin takes a beating, as it often does from the sun's ultraviolet rays, surgery, dehydration, stress, or the natural process of aging, it needs - it craves vitamin E to restore skin to health. The topical application of a vitamin E enriched eye cream or eye gel benefits the skin's natural healing process by soothing peeling skin, calming irritation, and decreasing swelling. This vital nutrient also helps soothe the inflammation that can be a result of aging or sun damage. The stratum corneum (top layer) of the skin is comprised partly of fatty acids and vitamin E eye cream plays a particularly significant role in protecting these fatty acids from free radical damage. Vitamin E eye cream or eye gel also helps to keep the skin smooth and soft, while offering protection to the delicate skin tone that will turn yellowish if fatty acids are allowed to oxidize.

Vitamin E can reach your skin through the healthy, vitamin rich foods you eat, as well as a topical vitamin E eye cream or eye gel to heal and repair damaged skin from the surface. The antioxidant nature of vitamin E means it will grab up and reduce the effect of free radicals that are causing damage to your skin at the cellular level. Foods high in vitamin E are easy to incorporate into your daily diet. They include dry-roasted sunflower seeds, nuts (especially almonds, but peanuts and hazelnuts are good, too), vegetable oils like cottonseed or safflower, turnip greens, tomatoes, pine nuts, peanut butter, wheat germ, and avocado.

The antioxidant properties of a vitamin E eye cream allow it to shield skin cells from tissue and cell damage, further promoting the anti-aging benefits of vitamin E for the skin. Still, studies indicate that a topical application of vitamin E eye cream or eye gel is most effective when combined with other antioxidants, such as vitamin C and vitamin K. Ageless Derma Retinol and Vitamin K Eye Cream is a good example of this powerful blend that will enhance skin's tone and texture, while still healing and repairing sun damaged or aging skin. This particular eye cream combines all the antioxidant power of vitamins E, K, C, and A with retinol to banish dark eye circles, wrinkles, and fine lines.

Most of the age-related skin problems, for both men and women, are generally believed to result from sun exposure over time. The sun's UV radiation damages cellular DNA, which not only increases the risk of skin cancer and immune function, but limits the body's ability to repair damaged tissues. This same UV radiation also damages collagen and elastin fibers, continually contributing to the development of wrinkles, dark circles, thinning, and other age-related skin issues. The soothing and healing action of a vitamin E eye cream or eye gel will, not only improve the body's ability to fight this damage, but actually give skin the ability to repair and heal itself by rebuilding collagen and fighting free radicals.

Even though a topical application of vitamin E boosts the antioxidant level in cell membranes, vitamin E alone isn't able to withstand ultraviolet radiation from frequent and long term exposure to the sun. Once again, a product like Ageless Derma Retinol and Vitamin K Eye Cream provides the perfect combination of vitamin E, vitamin K, and vitamin C. This potent mixture of vitamins E, K, and C drastically increases the level of UV protection available, as compared to any of these antioxidant vitamins on their own. If you are suffering with dark circles, wrinkles, or fine lines under your eyes, you might want to consider a check on your lifestyle. Keep in mind that even the very best eye creams, eye gels, eye treatments, or skin care regimens can not compete with continued dehydration, lack of sleep, and poor dietary habits. Vitamin E will promote healing and cell repair regardless of whether you have had surgical eye treatments, or find yourself plagued with dark under eye circles for other reasons like poor diet and high stress. But remember, beautiful healthy skin is a reflection of the care you give it, both inside and out.
