Present in both food and cosmetics, vitamin E, also known by its INCI name of Tocopherol, plays a key role in keeping the skin healthy, young and protected. Its numerous benefits and extraordinary antioxidant and protective properties make it a valuable ingredient to include in your skin-care routine. Let's see how.

Skin barrier strengthening

A very important function of vitamin E is to strengthen the skin barrier: being both humectant and emollient, it allows the skin to absorb and retain water, keeping it moisturised and velvety-looking. This property is particularly useful for drier skin, which benefits significantly, especially in the colder months.

Antioxidant function

Vitamin E is best known for its antioxidant properties, which are essential for protecting the skin from free radicals, waste molecules produced by the body that can cause cell damage and premature skin ageing. Furthermore, by helping to repair existing cell damage, this vitamin stimulates cell regeneration and improves skin structure, preventing loss of elasticity and expression lines.

UV protection

As a result of the antioxidant function, there is also important protection from UV rays, which are mainly responsible for the formation of spots and visible signs of ageing. Acting as a natural shield, vitamin E absorbs them, also reducing the risk of developing skin cancer.

Skin conditioner

Thanks to its chemical and biological properties, this vitamin helps maintain optimal skin health: it improves the skin's appearance and firmness, promotes its softness, elasticity and resistance, and provides an emollient action that smoothes and evens out the skin. Thanks also to its anti-inflammatory and soothing functions, it has a calming effect that is particularly useful for sensitive skin.

Our Hyalu Lifting Treatment

Among the Hyalustar products, the Hyalu Lifting Treatment combines hyaluronic acid and vitamin E for a comprehensive, skin-levelling action, giving the skin a radiant, smoothing and replumping appearance. The synergy of these ingredients offers a unique treatment experience and, used regularly, contributes to a significant difference in your skincare routine.
