• We’re sure you’ve heard the term “antioxidant” thrown around a lot lately, but what exactly are antioxidants and what do they do for your skin? Antioxidants protect the skin from damage by limiting the production of free radicals (“scavengers” that attack your skin cells and cause an aged appearance). In addition to healing and protecting the skin from damage, antioxidants also work to reduce inflammation, firm, and smooth wrinkles.

    Alpha Lipoic Acid is an antioxidant, commonly found in Green Tea, that reduces skin inflammation. In turn, this promotes a more even, bright skin tone and fewer wrinkles. Eminence Eight Greens Youth Serum includes this antioxidant, combined with several others, to fight all the signs of aging.

    Coenzyme Q10 is a skin firming antioxidant. DermaQuest Skin Therapy K-Q10 Firming Cream uses this natural antioxidant to promote collagen and elastin health. This creates firmer, tighter skin that snaps back into place.

    If you’re looking to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, Vitamins C and E are a great option. These two antioxidants naturally plump the skin and repair skin damage. SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic combines these potent ingredients to power away the signs of aging and reveal a youthful appearance.
