Why “Oily” Skin Is Amazing

Oily skin isn’t something you usually associate with youthful, healthy skin.


In fact, when you hear “oil” and “skin” in the same sentence, you probably picture shiny,

greasy skin with large pores and a rough texture.


Hardly what beautiful skin is supposed to look like.


But when it comes to this one particular vitamin, you’ll welcome oily skin with open

arms.


Here’s why:


You see... Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that protects your skin from

the sun’s harmful rays.


And the way Vitamin E makes its way into your skin is interesting...


Vitamin E hitches a ride via an oily, waxy substance called sebum - your body’s natural

moisturizing lotion.


Sebum is produced by your body’s sebaceous glands and oozes up through your pores

(which is why too much sebum can clog your pores and become an issue).


When balanced right, sebum coats your skin and keeps it fresh, moisturized and

protected from dryness.


But too little Vitamin E, and your skin will end up parched and cracked.


Now, none of this may come as a surprise to you, as I’m sure you’ve seen skin care

companies loading up their products with Vitamin E.


But there’s a problem with many of those products...


Topical Vitamin E releases free radicals when exposed to the sun and instead of

protecting your birthday suit, these free radicals can actually damage your skin.


So, the solution?


Eat your nuts!


Nuts and seeds, like almonds and sunflower seeds, are excellent sources of

Vitamin E.


If you’re feeling adventurous... goose meat will provide you with a hefty dose ON TOP of

being one of the more flavorful poultry options out there.


And I can promise you this...


If you get enough Vitamin E in your diet and you’ll LOVE the way your skin looks and

feels.
