What is the benefit of vitamin E in skin care?

Antioxidant. Vitamin e has strong antioxidant properties and is most effective when applied topically. I suggest combining vitamin e with a good quality vitamin c product to help repair damage caused by free radicals.
Reduces dryness. Vitamin e reduces dryness and increases the skins capacity to retain its natural moisturizers. Also, vitamin e’s potent antioxidant ability aids in neutralizing free radical damage in a protective function after exposure to cigarette smoke, and when used prior to uv exposure. Skin is protected, and is less red, dry and/or swollen.
