You can never have too much of antioxidants. Antioxidants are naturally occurring vitamins and minerals—like vitamins A, C, E, and green tea—that protect your skin against free radicals. They intervene to defend your skin against pollution and environmental damage, and work deep down to improve how skin works. Discover the 6 powerful benefits of antioxidants, and why they are a must in your skincare routine.
1.Anti-Pollution Defense Your skin is exposed daily to pollution and environmental stressors. Antioxidants are the superheroes in this scenario. Research has shown that antioxidants such as vitamin C and E are great ingredients to combat free radicals produced by pollutants.
2.Firm Skin Over time, the vital substances in skin’s surface become depleted, which causes firmness to decline. A blend of powerful antioxidants can help slow this kind of deterioration. Look for antioxidant products rich in omega-3 fatty acid, and almond oil.
3.Moisturizing Vitamin E has powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Combined with vitamin C it’s even more powerful against free radicals and premature aging.
4.Brighter Complexion Select antioxidants like vitamin C that have the unique ability to improve the appearance of dull skin, lighten hyperpigmentation, and dark spots, offering a more healthy-looking complexion.

5.Soothe Skin Certain antioxidants double up by also providing significant soothing properties for the skin. In particular, antioxidant-rich in green tea and chamomile stand out for their calming effects that visibly soothe redness.
Research shows antioxidants help diminish and visibly soften the appearance of wrinkles. Retinol is a form of vitamin A and is arguably the most effective ingredient for reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Retinol also speeds cell turnover and smooths the skin.
