Does Rubbing Vitamin E on the Face Help Wrinkles?
Rubbing vitamin E into your skin may help fine lines and wrinkles.

Vitamin E may help prevent or minimize wrinkles when applied to your skin regularly, although evidence is not conclusive regarding whether topical vitamin E has any noticeable effect on wrinkles or other signs of aging. The moisturizing and antioxidant properties of vitamin E may offer other skin benefits, however, such as decreasing skin roughness and flaking. Consult your doctor before rubbing vitamin E on your skin and discontinue use immediately if you develop a skin rash or other signs of an allergic reaction.

Step 1

Clean the affected area using a mild facial cleanser and lukewarm water. Avoid harsh soaps and hot water when washing your face, as these are irritating and drying and can make wrinkles worse. Gently pat your skin dry with a soft towel.

Step 2

Puncture a small hole in a capsule of vitamin E with a clean pin or pair of scissors. If you intend to cover a large area with the vitamin E gel, make a larger hole to increase the speed at which the gel is released from the capsule.

Step 3

Squeeze a small amount of vitamin E gel onto your clean fingertips and dab it onto wrinkled areas. Be careful not to get the vitamin E gel in your eyes or nose.

Step 4

Spread the gel around your face, using gentle pressure and the tips of your fingers. Let the gel dry before going to sleep or using cosmetics or other skincare products.
