Vitamin E Skin Oil 12,000 I.U. for red marks

9 posts in this topic

I just bought some Spring Valley Vitamin E Skin Oil from Wal-Mart today. I heard Vitamin E was good for red marks and not so good for acne (however, Proactiv's doing fine for my acne). Here's what the ingredients say: Soybean Oil, Vitamin E (Tocopheryl Acetate), Coconut Oil. I guess it's not pure Vitamin E, is it? The red marks are actually fading a little from the horrible July breakout, but I want to speed up the healing process. Does anyone have any experiences with Vitamin E oil?

I tried some 10,000 IU vitamin E for brown/redmarks exactly 1 year and 1 week ago (i know this because I wanted a quick-fix for a special event at that time :D). My skin is naturally pretty oily. I only used it three times because this bump started to form about half an inch below my right eye. It was basically a pimple, but it never came to a head. This bump left the longest brown mark I've ever had on my face. Today, a little over a year later, the mark has cleared about 95%, so now it just looks like a small barely noticeable birthmark or something. Anyway, I just think this is the weirdest experience I've ever had with a mark and it is due to vitamin e :P

So it took a year to get rid of it, eh? :dry: Well, that's a bitch. I guess time does fly, though. Hmm... :think: Maybe a year isn't so bad. My head is out of it tonight. I can't think of anything to say! :wacko:

If it is not good for scars why do doctors reccomend it? My boyfriend got some skin grafting done and they recommended him to use Vitamin E oil on it..
