We love powerful skincare ingredients and nothing quite compares to the power of antioxidants! These awesome compounds work hard to keep skin wrinkle-free and healthy – and they couldn’t be easier to use!
So what are the best antioxidants and how can they help your specific skin issues? We break down everything you need to know below about antioxidants and why your skin needs them ASAP!
We love skincare ingredients that have multiple benefits for the skin – and vitamin E does just that! Also known as tocopherol, this powerful antioxidant is a must-have in your skincare routine if you are over the age of 40. Unlike other antioxidant ingredients, vitamin E is extremely gentle on the skin and can help manage premature aging, UV damage and improve skin texture.
The best part about using vitamin E in your skincare routine is that it provides support for all kinds of ailments. Its natural anti-inflammatory properties help keep skin healthy while it adds softness and suppleness to your face. It’s also wonderful at naturally protecting you from free radicals – which lead to wrinkles, sagging skin, and accelerated aging. If you want to fight wrinkles and aging skin, use your Repair & Release Cream, formulated with vitamin E, twice daily.
You may be used to a mug of this next ingredient, but it’s got as many benefits for your skin as it does for your body. Green tea is considered one of the most potent antioxidants and can work wonders for skin that is in need of soothing or protection. Green tea works to soothe rosacea, psoriasis, sensitive skin, and even acne.
When choosing a product with green tea, you need to make sure there is a sufficient amount of it in your products that it can actually make a difference. Many drugstore products will say they include green tea, but it has such a small amount that it does nothing. We include ample amounts of green tea in our best-selling Repair & Release Cream so it can go to work to soothe your skin and repair wrinkles and damage.
You’ve heard us talking about how amazing vitamin C is for skin so many times, but we really can’t emphasize enough how crucial this ingredient is for youthful skin. Vitamin C can come from many different sources but the most effective products, like our Dark Spot Corrector, contain more than 1 type for maximum results and efficacy.
Vitamin C uses its antioxidant powers to perking up dull, blah, tired-looking skin. The compounds in vitamin C go to work to brighten your complexion, while also fighting free radicals off.Daily used of vitamin C in your routine can calm and hydrate your skin, and similar to retinol, it helps boost your collagen production to tighten fine lines and smooth uneven skin.
