Food Sources of Vitamin E
Sources of Vitamin E are all kinds of nuts and beans. Nut butters and oil like peanut butter, sesame butter, almond butter, peanut oil, olive oil, etc. also provide high doses of Vitamin E. Green vegetables, tomatoes and mango are also rich in Vitamin E.I would also like to add that deficiency of Vitamin E is very rare so if you really think that it is happening with you, please always consult a doctor first before taking any kind of supplements. It is not a healthy procedure to fulfill nutritional deficiencies by taking supplements unless your body has some major issue.
What are Stretch Marks?
- Coconut oil repairs the inner lying tissue structure of the skin
- Almond oil is rich in vitamin E oil so helps with regeneration of collagen
- Lavender oil (if you can get hold of original and pure lavender oil) is good for healing stretch marks or lavender flower masks are also good for the purpose though you can not find lavender in India
- Cocoa Butter and Shea Butter (if you get hold of unrefined cocoa or shea, mostly found in African stores) have lot of important nutrients for the skin
- Aloevera gel is again great for stretch marks, mix the aloevera gel with almond or coconut oil and it is great as a moisturizer for dry skin too
No, I am not talking of supplements. This is a little advise which I got from my hair stylist when I went for a haircut. Every time you oil your hair, pour a tablet of vitamin E oil and Evening Primrose Oil in the oil and put the container in hot water for 10-15 minutes to heat it up and then, massage the oil in your hair. It helps in prmoting hair growth and keeps your hair healthy. Another advantage of doing this is that your hair will recover from breakages it might be suffering from.
