    Does vitamin e work orally or topically??

    can you take vitamin e internally (orally)?? Will that help fade the red marks?? Or, do i have to get the topical and use it as a moisturizer on my skin??

    Well...i take vitamin E internally, and it really doesnt do anything for my skin, atleast what i can see im sure it's helping thought, but i'd go topically

    i bought a bottle of vitamin e oil the other day in the drug store. it actually says to use it on blemishes RIGHT ON THE BOTTLE. the only thing i was wondering was its oil, and doesnt oil break out the skin? anyone know if the same applies to vit-e?<p>[This message has been edited by sternrad941 (edited 02-10-2001).]

    umm, someone posted an earlier post saying that you should puncture the oil pill and spread the oil over your red marks, then allow the oil to soak in for about 30 mins and wash off the oil with your face wash, I'm not sure if it works, Im just simply re-posting what someone suggested.

    I was the one that posted the suggestion about puncturing the vitamin e pills and spreading the oil on your face for about 30 minutes (massaging it into skin every other 5 minutes). I would have reponded earlier but I have been out of town. I have been doing this technique for about a month and have seen some great results. You would think putting oil on your face would break it out but I have never had that problem because you only leave it on for short periods of time. I do take vitamin e internally also but I think the topical method is what is working. It's worth a try. Only do it about three times a week. I hope this helps!
