Food for Skin: Vitamin E and Why We Love It
Why is vitamin E so good for skin?
Vitamins are essential for skin and overall body health. Remember when you were a kid and your mom used to make you eat a vitamin everyday? For me, it was those delicious Flintstones chewable vitamins that tasted more like candy than anything else.
The same concept applies to your skin, especially vaginal skin that is highly mucosal and absorbent -- and generally in need of some extra TLC depending on what stage of life you're currently in (menopause, new mom, endometriosis, etc.)
What is vitamin E?
This is the definition from healthline:
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble, essential nutrient with anti-inflammatory properties. Vitamin E helps support the immune system, cell function, and skin health. It's an antioxidant, make it effective at combating the effects of free radicals produced by the metabolism of food and toxins in the environment.
Magical right? It's clear vitamin E is a powerhouse ingredient that our bodies and skin desperately crave.
The best part is - topical vitamin E (like the one used in Chiavare) is easily absorbed into the skin! Hooray!
Benefits of Vitamin E for vaginal skin
As a powerful antioxidant, vitamin E may help remove free radicals that damage the cell structure. It may also promote blood circulation (good news in a lube) and cell regeneration. We believe it helps keep vaginal skin moisturized, supple, and ready.
Dr. Axe says, "Because of its antioxidant properties, vitamin E is absolutely essential to health. Vitamin E benefits many aspects of health and has been shown to reduce PMS symptoms, and support skin and hair health."
Foods that contain vitamin E
Topical vitamin E used in Chiavare or other skincare products is beneficial, but for optimum levels of necessary vitamins and nutrients, we recommend increasing your intake of healthy foods such as:
- Sunflower seeds
- Leafy Greens
- Butternut Squash
- Pine Nuts
- Sweet Potato
Vitamins in a lubricant?
At Chiavare, we believe in providing the healthiest, most pure, and holistic product for your delicate vaginal skin. So heck yes, we added vitamin E - along with five other vegan, hypoallergenic ingredients designed to nourish and hydrate.
Whether you want a lube for intercourse, dealing with endometriosis, menopause, sex after chemotherapy, or childbirth -- Chiavare is for you!
Our goal is to make sexual health not x-rated, but actually about health by creating a product to carry you through every stage of life.
Live Laugh Lube,
Thanks @Sabrina for your question! We recommend using Chiavaye BOTH internally and on the external vaginal tissue to help with dryness. If using for intimacy, also put Chiavaye on your partner. #livelaughlube
I suffer from vaginal dryness should I use this around the vagina area or inside.
