Are there any benefits of antioxidants in skin care?

‘Antioxidants’ are a big buzz word that we keep hearing everywhere. But what is all the fuzz about?

In short, our skin can get damaged by what we eat, the air we breathe or even the environment we are in. Things such as pollution can create a lot of free radicals. Free radicals are beauty devils as they are very harmful. 

Free radicals are constantly on the lookout for a partner and can cause a lot of damage if they are on their own. Luckily, antioxidants are their soul mates. Antioxidants pair up with them to stop the damage from being done.

Antioxidant molecules work deep in the skin layers to keep you looking younger for longer.

Am I too young to be using antioxidant-rich skin care at the age of 25?

Absolutely not. Your older self will thank you.

You should start using antioxidant products at an early age and use them long-term. The best cure is prevention and there is nothing better than an antioxidant-rich product that will protect your skin from damage caused by the environment. You should think of antioxidant products as a long-term investment for your skin

Is it too late to start using antioxidant-rich skin care at 50?

Absolutely not. It is never too late to save your skin.

Antioxidants hold countless benefits for the skin. Whilst they work to prevent damage to your skin, they also strengthen your skin and can help reverse damage that has already been done.

How can antioxidants benefit my skin?

To make things simple, we’ve broken down some of the key benefits of antioxidants in skin care.

1. Your anti-pollution shield.

Just like the sun’s rays, pollution can age your skin prematurely. In today’s world, there is almost no escape from pollution. It will increase the amount of free radicals and give you dull skin, wrinkles and sagging sooner.

By partnering up with free radicals, antioxidants stop them from doing the damage. Antioxidants will work like as shield for your skin. Don’t stress about ageing as stress also causes free radicals in your skin, instead use antioxidant-rich products longterm.

2. Anti-Inflammatory Benefits of Antioxidant in Skin Care

Inflammation damages skin cells. It is one of the main causes of premature ageing. Powerful antioxidants have the ability to prevent the damage caused by inflammation by stopping it in its tracks.

We use one of the most powerful antioxidant in our serum Boost. Even Romans used it to treat a scorpion sting. With modern technology, we increased the power of the ancient recipe to create a highly potent serum. Our Anti-Oxidant Boost uses Rosmarinic Acid from Lemon Balm. This precious ingredient gets rid of damaging free radicals 3 times faster than Vitamin C and almost twice as fast as Vitamin E*. Antioxidants such as this reduce inflammation and enhance skin’s elasticity to give your complexion a more supple and toned appearance.

3. Brighter Complexion

Top quality antioxidants have the incredible ability to improve the appearance of dull, uneven skin tone and deliver a more healthy-looking complexion because they can deactivate toxins. Less toxins means healthier skin. Highly concentrated antioxidant serums help even out skin tone and achieve a brighter complexion.

4. Anti-Wrinkle Benefits of Antioxidants in Skin Care

Through their ability to strengthen collagen fibres and encourage collage production, antioxidants can also actively help in diminishing the appearance of wrinkles.

Antioxidants are your skin’s best friends in life. Make sure to start using them early to get all the benefits of antioxidants in skin care because, “prevention is better than cure”, as Hippocrates once said.
