What Are Antioxidants?

Antioxidants are natural compounds like vitamins C and E that help fight free radicals. We will touch on why that is important to your skin in a moment. Antioxidants are found in a lot of fruits and vegetables, like blueberries and broccoli. Even dark chocolate is rich in antioxidants.

Are Antioxidants Good For My Skin?

Antioxidants are one of the best ways to revitalize your skin because they fight these pesky molecules called free radicals. These inevitable chemicals are naturally produced when our digestive system converts food into energy. Unfortunately, free radicals damage cells, cause aging, and in the worst-case scenarios, can assist in developing some cancers. This is where antioxidants come into play. They have proven to be the best fighters against free radicals. Antioxidants protect and hydrate cells, which helps prevent lines and wrinkles. They also reduce inflammation for smooth and healthy skin. Even if free radicals do cause damage to your cells, antioxidants help repair them back to their normal state. Whether natural or manufactured, antioxidants are a leader in keeping your skin youthful. They can be applied topically with an antioxidant serum like our five-star rated Glow Natural Facial Antioxidant Serum with aloe vera and rose water. Not only will it help revitalize your skin with important antioxidants, but it's also great for hydrating your skin.

Antioxidants to Look For In Skincare Products

Vitamin A, or retinol, is one of the best antioxidants for the skin. It helps exfoliate, increases cell turnover to slow signs of aging, speeds up collagen production, and more. Vitamin A is truly a one-stop shop for being healthy for your skin. Vitamin C, like A, has a few different purposes in skincare. First, it hydrates your skin and allows your cells to retain moisture better. It also can help fade pigmentation, allowing your skin to maintain a youthful, glowing look. Carotenoids aren't as popularly known as the first two antioxidants in this list. Still, they serve just as important of a role. They are mainly found in the epidermis or the surface of the skin. Carotenoids help protect your skin from UV light, pollution, and smoking.
