A look at some of mother nature's more impressive work
What is Vitamin E?
With a massive list of benefits, Vitamin E is considered by many to be a miracle ingredient, and is particularly beneficial in the nourishment and development of healthy hair and skin. Beyond helping to moisturise, the high concentration of antioxidants found in Vitamin E helps heal wounds, scars, and sunburns. Impressively, it has anti-aging properties proven to smooth wrinkles and fine lines as well.
Outside of direct application in grooming products, you can and should eat your vitamin E, which can be found in many nuts, fruits, vegetables, and oils. Almonds, sweet potato, and avocado are all tasty options to get your fill.
What is Aloe Vera?
Egyptians called it the "plant of immortality", and while we've yet to figure out a formula that provides everlasting life, aloe is quite amazing, and one of the more important ingredients you should be looking for in your skin care products.
Beyond its legendary reputation in the care of sunburns, aloe is also quite effective in treating just about every skin condition known to man, it's basically the Swiss Army Knife of skin care. Containing a laundry list of anti-oxidants like beta-carotene, vitamins C and E, aloe improves the natural firmness of skin and keeps your look nice and tight.
If any, look for these 2 in your grooming kit.
