oxidant. Vitamin E is found in some plant oils and in leafy green vegetables. It is a vital weapon inyour Los Angeles skin care. The smog ages your skin after the protective level of Vitamin E is reduced. Aging is characterizedby the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness, uneven skin tone and age spots. Obviously, one result of the research was it validated the use of Vitamin E for good Los Angelesskin care. LOS ANGELES SKIN CARE AND THE UC BERKELEY STUDY Scientists found Vitamin E in the uppermost skin layer (stratum corneum) dropped by 25 percentafter only two hours exposure at double the peak levels of ozone in cities like Los Angeles andMexico City. The UC Berkeley researchers found only twenty-five percent of Vitamin E remained in the stratumcorneum after a similar experiment for six consecutive days. The startling finding here is that the exposure was only for two hours. This is far less that theaverage person is exposed to in a heavily polluted area like Los Angeles. A compromised uppermost skin layer means problems for your overall skin health. According tothe UC Berkeley professor Lens Thiele, "Skin Care Companies know if you have dry skin, it's yourstatum corneum that's in trouble. Everything you apply on your skin has to pass through thatlayer." Therefore a reduced level of the anti-oxidant Vitamin E in the stratum corneum equals skinailments and premature aging of your skin.
