Your Personal Guide To Antioxidant-Rich Products In Skin Care

The most potent skin care ingredients are the “antioxidants”. This is because a blend of essential antioxidants can be very supportive in slowing down skin deterioration.

Dermatologists focus on the use of antioxidants because according to them they are a must for every single person’s skin care regimen.

How Do Antioxidants Work?

Oxidation occurs throughout nature. As far as your skin is concerned, it is largely caused by the creation of free radicals at the cellular level when the skin is exposed to ultraviolet light and other environmental aggressors. Antioxidants are touted to reduce oxidative stress by neutralizing free radicals. These free radicals are the unstable atoms that have an unpaired electron in their outermost shell, almost like a knife without a sheath. The antioxidants act to stash the knife, binding with the unstable electron and stopping it from attacking collagen strands and other cells of the skin’s structure.

Antioxidants are the hardest-working skin care ingredients in the game. Not only do they scavenge free radicals (the renowned skin-aging culprits) to promote a brighter, more even complexion, they are also the superstars at nixing fine lines and keeping skin looking fresh. Skin-care professionals and experts often consider antioxidants as the fountain of youth. They are solely responsible to protect, prevent, and limit free radical damage on the skin, and some even assist with hydration and inflammation. Not only will your skin be better looking, but it will also be healthier overall.

Antioxidants are known to be potent superstars for your skin. They intervene to defend your skin against pollution and environmental damage, and work deep down to improve how the skin works. Reasons to add antioxidant-rich products in your skin care routine are:

Skin’s Anti-Pollution Defense

You probably cannot see it happening, but your skin takes a daily beating from pollution and environmental aggressors, which can lead to sagging, wrinkles, and dull skin tone. According to most of the researches, topically applying antioxidants have a unique ability to intercept this kind of environmental attack and halt accelerated ageing in its tracks. Glutathione, ubiquinone, and numerous botanical ingredients are just a few of many antioxidants that can defend against the visible effects of pollution on the skin.

Oriental Botanics’ Aloe vera, Green Tea & Cucumber Night Gel has the perfect set of antioxidants to fight against the daily dose of pollution. This Night Gel supplies your skin the external hydration and superior nourishment essential for rebuilding and revitalizing the skin. It is packed with nutrients that are vital for sustaining the nighttime cell renewal and regeneration process so that your skin retains its youthful elasticity. It helps in repairing the microscopic damages in the skin that occur due to daylong exposure to sunlight and pollution. It restores the skin’s protective moisture barrier and strengthens the antioxidant defense against free radicals. Adding this product to your daily nighttime skincare regimen helps in lightening the blemishes and gives you a clear and radiant complexion.

Firming Skin

Over time, the vital substances in the skin’s surface become depleted, which causes firmness and softness of the skin to decline. A skincare product with a potent blend of antioxidants can step in to help slow this kind of deterioration. The ultimate result is that your skin regains a firmer look and feel.

To prevent the depleting skin firmness, you can look for antioxidant products rich in omega-3 fatty acids such as flaxseed oil and linoleic acid; passion fruit, which is a potent source of omega-6; and almond oil, which delivers omega-9. You can also look for natural ingredients having omega acids. Omega enriched antioxidants are extremely effective in revitalizing skin’s surface, and when you pair them with the powerhouse antioxidant retinol you get firmer-looking, more resilient skin.

Brighter Complexion

Some antioxidants have the unique ability to improve the appearance of dull, uneven skin tone and deliver a more healthy-looking complexion.

Vitamin C is one such antioxidant, and it is particularly effective for brightening skin and getting a more even tone complexion. Vitamin C comes in many beneficial forms and in numerous botanical elements.

As aloe vera contains a good amount of vitamin c, you can use Oriental Botanics’ 99% Aloe Vera Fresh Soothing Gel For Skin.

It can easily penetrate your skin and nourishes the skin tissues, thereby leaving your skin thoroughly nourished. This natural skin-conditioning agent locks moisture in the skin and adds suppleness and firmness to the skin giving you radiant skin. It assists in the regeneration and renewal of the skin cells and helps to preserve the youthful elasticity and brightness of your skin.

Soothing Skin

Certain antioxidants double up in their effects by also providing significant soothing properties for the skin. In particular, antioxidant-rich green tea, chamomile, and beta-glucan are wonderful for their distinct calming effects to visibly soothe redness and inflammation on the skin.

You can use an ultra-soothing mix of antioxidants and skin-replenishing ingredients for the perfect result. It is also great for sensitive skin, even for those with rosacea.

Repairing Sun Damage

We all know that too much sun is dangerous! It can potentially be very dangerous for your skin’s appearance, drying it out and damaging the skin cells. Sun damage can make skin appear dull and wrinkly. In such a condition, antioxidants that stimulate blood flow in the skin can help encourage the growth of new cells and make sun-damaged skin appear younger.
