Vitamin E, also called tocopherol, is both an antioxidant and a nutrient. It has a reddish/light brown hue and it's a key ingredient in most skin care products. Eggs, cereals, vegetables, fruits, meat, and wheat germ oil are the main sources of vitamin E.
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that protects the skin from irritations that may be caused by UV radiation. Some people apply Vitamin E cream on their skin to keep it from aging.
