(even though my skin looks super oily in pics..it really is just the flash..lol.. Notice how my camera phone pics don't have the same effect)
Because I use an oil as a moisturizer, I don't want to apply anything else to my face afterwards. I know that UV protection is necessary, so I was doing a little research to see if Vitamin E contained some which is does.
During my research, I came across many studies but the below was easiest to understand:
A scientific review done by researchers at Boston University Medical Center examined the basic mechanisms of how vitamin E works on the skin. They concluded that vitamin E used topically and consumed orally can help protect the skin from tumors and act as a barrier against sun damage. (Thiele JJ, Ekanayake-Mudiyanselage S. Mol Aspects Med. 2007 Oct-Dec;28(5-6):646-67.)
There are also other oils that have Sun Protection, see below.
These will work for those with dark or brown skin.
Not only is sun protection needed for skin, but it's also good for hair!
