I have been using Really Good Vit E Oil by Fushi for several weeks now.
And as I quickly realised how precious and effective this oil was, I decided to incorporate it into my beauty routine.
I started mixing it with everything: moisturizers, shampoo, and even with my foundation, to make the most of it.
There is plenty of different vitamin E oils on the market, so let me explain why I think Fushi’s oil is one of the better ones.
For those who have gotten to know me a little through my posts probably are aware of what sort of stuff I choose to put on and inside my body. And that I always try to choose organic and natural over conventional and synthetic whenever I can.
I trust Fushi as their oils are organic, virgin cold pressed and derived from non-GMO plants.
When choosing vitamin E oils you want to make sure that it is natural – as it is superior to its synthetic equivalent. So put on your detective hat and pull out the
Natural vitamin E is listed as d-alpha tocopherol, d-alpha tocopheryl succinate or d-alpha tocopheryl acetate. While synthetic forms of vitamin E are listed with a “dl” – prefix instead.
However, lots of brands do not feel the need of being transparent enough to specify on their labels which form of vitamin E they use.
So keep this in mind when you are searching for an oil to buy.
Vitamin E oil is usually mixed with a carrier oil, this is because pure vitamin E oil is too thick and sticky on its own.
Fushi’s vitamin E oil is combined with jojoba seed oil, sunflower seed oil, wheat germ oil, raspberry seed oil and sweet orange peel oil to make a great anti-ageing oil with quick results.
I love to keep my skincare routine very simple.
I have been using coconut oil, olive oil and jojoba oil – and lots of other stuff that was available in my kitchen pantry – as a natural eye makeup remover.
But I love trying new products and new DIY recipes.
So I went on a search and found this awesome and simple recipe:
- 2 tbsp witch hazel
- 2 tbsp Really Good Vit E Oil
- 2 tbsp filtered water (I use Berkey)
I keep it in a glass container and shake it before using it.
2. EYE CREAM
Choosing the right eye cream was always tricky to me, as I have extremely thin and sensitive skin around my eyes.
I often experienced skin irritation around my eyes after trying new eye creams.
Which is why making my own DIY cream was the most sensible thing to do.
I tried several DIY methods, but what I found was that a simple mix of coconut oil and Fushi Vit E oil, was the most delicate and effective one!
- 4 tbsp coconut oil
- ½ tsp Really Good Vit E Oil
Remember to keep it refrigerated between usage so that it gets solidified.
Voila! You now have a wonderfully repairing and skin-brightening eye serum.
Vitamin E is extremely beneficial for the skin. It has intensely moisturising properties and is helping with tissue repair.
I personally found that vitamin E oil is too rich to use directly on my face so I prefer to mix a drop or two with my moisturisers or serums.
I also sometimes mix it into my makeup foundation (when I’m in a hurry) to take advantage of its superb qualities.
I was recently asked by one of my amazing and inspiring followers and member of my Facebook group (Get Healthy and Fabulous Naturally
I gave her the below recipe and it was truly amazing how quickly she could see an improvement in her nails’ health.
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tbsp Really Good Vit E Oil
- 3 drops tea tree essential oil
Place this mixture in a small glass container and use it twice a day.
Vitamin E oil not only repairs damaged hair but also promotes hair growth by improving the scalp condition as well as treats split ends.
I put a small amount in one palm and dab with my fingers to apply to my scalp first. I recommend using just a micro amount, as it’s difficult to rinse it off afterwards. Plus you do not need that much to get impressive results with this oil!
I also like adding a few drops to my shampoo or conditioner or create my own hair mask from it.
What is your favourite way to incorporate vitamin E oil into your beauty routine?
