Vitamin E for skin.

Sometimes, when things are going bad, there is something to be glad for.
I brought my 4-year-old boy to the hospital for a gastroenteritis (now he's good), and he had, among other things, a fissure, for which the doctor prescribed an oil (topical application).
The commercial name for it in Italy is Vea Oil, however it's Vitamin E , 100%, natural pure oil.
It's viscous and thick, you can use it only one drop.
I didn't know anything about it but reading on the Internet, and on the leaflet, I discovered it has a variety of purposes for skin health:
-Dry or irritated skin, in each part of the body, even mucous membranes, and delicate parts.
-Cracked skin.
-Rough and scaly skin.
-Sensitive, intolerant, or allergic skin.
-Genital or perianal redness or dryness.
-Being edible, it's safe and protective of the lips and mucous membranes of the mouth.
-Protective and against fissures of lactating nipples.
-Relieves itching from insect bites.
-Moisturizes, soothes, softens skin.
-Anti aging.
I can say that the day after the first application, the fissure of my son had a visible improvement.
And seeing this, I applied it on an itchy area I had, it calmed immediately.
I'll keep it in my medicine cabinet.


  1. I had been using vit e all the time for scars, etc. but then read something about it staining the skin (or something else - can't remember) so I stopped using it. That's all I need to see, a few news reports then I stop cold turkey. Yeah, I'm crazy ;-) Glad you liked those magnificent cannon balls!!! :D

  2. Yes Carma, I read something controversial about scars treated with vit e, in fact I didn't put scars in my list. :)

  3. I will have to look into this. I usually don't take anything extra, but like to get my vitamin through my food.

    I loved your post about past life dancer. Past lives...very interesting indeed!

  4. Sorry Kimberly, may be it was not clear that it's for topical application ( I just added a note ), we don't take supplements either.

  5. you are always on top of things!

    P.S. keep an eye out for any flash mob opportunities in Italy for when I *wishful thinking* retire there :D

  6. Darling,

  7. Hi Kim, thank you for your concern, it's just a lack of inspiration, see you :D
