Antioxidants are essential and the more you apply to skin, the better! But what exactly are Antioxidants? and how do they help our skin? read on to find out. 



WHAT ARE ANTIOXIDANTS?


Antioxidants are naturally occurring vitamins and minerals that neutralise free radicals and protect the skin from environmental damage. There are too many antioxidants to list here, however some popular antioxidants include Green Tea, Chamomile, Willowherb, Spin Trap, Resveratrol, Tocopheryl Acetate (form of Vitamin E). Our favourite antioxidants are Vitamin C, Vitamin A and Niacinamide. You can learn more about the antioxidants contained in our products in the key ingredients section on product pages. 

Most Antioxidants are safe to use during pregnancy and breastfeeding, however please refer to the individual product descriptions and always check with your physician.

HOW DO ANTIOXIDANTS WORK?


Antioxidant substances prevent and slow down damage caused to cells by free radicals by binding to unstable molecules produced both naturally in the body and as a reaction to environmental stressors such as pollution. 



WHY SHOULD YOU INTRODUCE AN ANTIOXIDANTS INTO YOUR ROUTINE?


Incorporating a daily Antioxidants product into your routine is like an insurance system for your skin, some of the main benefits including:


-Defense against pollution 

Our skin takes in a daily beating from pollution and environmental stressors, which is what leads to things such as sagging, wrinkles and a dull skin tone. Antioxidants applied topically has the ability to intercept this kind of environmental attack


-Skin Firming properties

The vital substances in our skins surface overtime become depleted which is what causes firmness to decline. Antioxidants can help slow down this kind of deterioration leaving your skin looking and feeling firmer.


-Brighter complexion

Certain antioxidant products have the ability to improve the appearance of dull and uneven skin tones delivering a more healthy-looking complexion. Vitamin C in particular is very effective in brightening the skin.


-Skin soothing properties

Antioxidants is also great for soothing sensitised or reactive skin, in particular products including ingredients such as green tea, chamomile and beta-glucan stand out for their distinct calming effects which visibly soothe reddened and reactive skin. 


-Fights fine lines and wrinkles

Antioxidants is also excellent in helping diminish and visibly soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
