What do antioxidants do for your skin?

Antioxidants in your skincare routine bring your skin lots of benefits and since it is your largest organ, it is important to take care of it and show your skin some love!

To get started, what are antioxidants? You've probably heard of them before, they are molecules naturally present in plant-based things such as vegetables, fruits, coffee, chocolate and wine ( yas!) Their names? Resveratrol, flavanols, lyxopene, catechins and the popular ones include vitamin A, C and E. Their role? Inhibit the oxidation of your skin, a chemical reaction caused by free radicals present in the environment (air pollution, smoke...) and naturally produced by? YOU. So antioxidants help prevent or stop the impact and damages oxidants cause to your health and skin. Anti-Oxidants, sim-ple.

Antioxidants are good for my skin health and appearance, and here are their benefits:

They have valuable calming and anti-inflammatory properties for a better skin tone and keep acne away.

They help in scar treatment minimizing the appearance of scar tissue by increasing the blood flow and the development of a new skin. An antioxidant-rich scar ingredient is aloe.

Another benefit is skin firming, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. They stimulate the collagen production and encourage the development of new cells for a skin elasticity recovering and a rejuvenated look.

You might already eat food that preserves your skin cells how do antioxidant work in skincare? What about a topical application?

It is great to nourish directly your skin surface with the good ingredients.
