Vitamin E This healing antioxidant has been touted as a miracle ingredient in the skin-care world. Agents like pollution and UV light trigger the formation of free radicals, which attack other cells, damaging cell structure and collagen in the process. The end result? Premature skin aging and dryness in the form of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots. Moisturizing vitamin E, however, strengthens your skin's barrier and neutralizes free radicals.
Similar to omega-3s, vitamin E is a potent anti-inflammatory and a great ally during the cold winter months. The antioxidant also suppresses arachidonic acid, a polyunsaturated fat that worsens inflammatory skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. If you're taking a supplement, make sure your intake doesn't exceed 1,000 milligrams daily.
