Vitamin E Face Mask for Skin Repair

Acne scars, fine lines, and blemishes can all benefit from a little skin repair.
Using this homemade vitamin E face mask is a great way to nourish and protect the skin, but also to encourage skin repair with vitamin E. This fat-soluble nutrient is found in all of the nourishing oils — olive oil, apricot kernel, avocado. Wheat germ oil is particularly high in this vitamin antioxidant, which helps to protect cells from damage and helps to repair tissue. Vitamin E is found in a lot of skin care products, from facials to moisturizing lotions. Using a nutritional oil in a homemade mask, you get natural vitamin E. Wheat germ oil is also packed with phyosterols, which may also aid in skin repair. These compounds are definitely great for keeping the skin soft and smooth, and for creating a protective barrier against moisture loss.

To make this homemade face mask even more powerful it is combined with fresh mango, another great source of vitamin E. Mango is also rich in carotenoids, antioxidants which are known to protect the skin from oxidative stress and inflammation. Add a little oat flour for more natural emollient properties and nutrients and you have the ultimate homemade skin repair face mask.

To make this vitamin E facial you will need:

  • 1 tablespoon of wheat germ oil
  • 1/4 of a fresh mango
  • 1 teaspoon of oat four

Peel your mango and add about one-quarter of the fruit to the blender. Enjoy the rest. Add the wheat germ oil and oat flour and blend for thirty seconds. Smear over a clean face. Leave on for twenty minutes and then pat dry. While mangos are in season, try this mask once a week to help revitalize skin and repair tissue. It is great for smoothing the complexion and helping to prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
