The Best Antioxidants For Your Skin

The Best Antioxidants For Your Skin

And where to find them

Antioxidants are an essential part of any healthy skincare routine. We’ve heard them talked about time and time again expressing how amazing they are but, when it comes down to it most people don’t actually know what they do for the skin. We’re here to change that and provide you with our top antioxidant picks to add to your routine ASAP. You can thank us later!

Free Radicals = Skin Damage

The reason why antioxidants are so important is that they’re essentially your defenders against free radicals. To explain, we’ve got to get a bit sciencey here. Free radicals are unstable molecules that have an unpaired electron and are highly reactive. The lack of electron causes them to scavenge looking for a pair and as a result, leave behind lasting damage to healthy cells. For your skin, this manifests as inflammation, fine lines and wrinkles, loss of elasticity, increased hyperpigmentation, and much more. Antioxidants are a must in your routine as they’re an essential component to fight back against damaging free radicals and maintain healthy skin. Isn’t that what we all want?

Retinol (Vitamin A)

If you’re looking to age gracefully then you’ve likely heard of Retinol aka Vitamin A. This powerful ingredient is one of the most popular and well-researched antioxidants known for its ability to boost collagen production, increase cell turnover, and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. This triple-threat combats aging and retains your youthful, radiant glow. If there’s one ingredient you need to add to your routine — it’s this one!

Find It In: You can typically find retinol in serums or creams that are designed to combat the major signs of aging. It’s important to keep in mind that while effective this ingredient tends to be harsh on the skin. You should never want to inflict any damage or irritation so in order to avoid adverse reactions, remember to start slow and pay attention to any signs of irritation. No need to rush when it comes to retinol, whether you’re using it one day a week or you’re using it every day — you can still reap the benefits. Consistency is key!

Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide)

We love adding Niacinamide to our routine and with good reason! A well-maintained moisture barrier is integral to protecting the skin against free radical damage and niacinamide works by protecting the outer layer of the skin. It further protects by increasing ceramide synthesis — skin-identical lipids that make up the outer barrier and provide the skin with moisture. This multi-functional ingredient also soothes inflammation, combats acne, and evens your skin tone. If you’re looking to pair down your routine and make it a bit simpler, this multi-purpose ingredient is a great way to target multiple skin concerns at the same time.

Find It in: Our Salmon Cream is a great way to add some niacinamide to your routine. We combined its brightening power with age-defying peptides and protein-rich salmon caviar to smooth and firm the skin. This universal, grease-free moisturizer works hard to fight aging and provide your skin with intense moisture. We’re also just a little obsessed with the whipped textures that melt into the skin like a dream.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is considered the golden standard when it comes to antioxidants as it fights hyperpigmentation AND increases collagen production. Along with retinol, this is another ingredient that has been considerably researched and proven to be incredibly effective. The water-soluble vitamin provides your skin with numerous benefits including UV-photo protection, prevents transepidermal water loss, and reduces hyperpigmentation by inhibiting melanin production. If you’re suffering from blemishes, it’s a great source to even your complexion and give you a gorgeous glow.

Find It In: The Tomato Serum is a powerful treatment formulated with gently exfoliating tomato extract, brightening pure vitamin C, and collagen-boosting peptides to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It’ll transform your skin into a brighter, more youthful version of itself in one easy step.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is one of the most commonly used antioxidants which you can find in many different forms from oils to moisturizers. This nourishing ingredient is known for its ability to protect the skin from UV-damage, prevent inflammation, and provide a mega-dose of moisture. It also works hard to combat free radical damage further maintaining skin health.

Find It In: The Rice Cleansing Sorbet utilizes the nourishing and antioxidant properties of vitamin E to gently cleanse and hydrate the skin removing all traces of stubborn makeup. SPF, and impurities. It’s also formulated with rice bran oil and wheat germ oil to exfoliate dead skin cells and provide an extra layer of nourishment for soft, clean skin. This luxe formula is a must to gently cleanse and hydrate the skin.

Green Tea

Fact: Green Tea is amazing for your skin! It’s enriched with antioxidants and polyphenols including epigallocatechin gallate aka EGCG. The anti-inflammatory plant compound protects the skin from UV-photo damage and premature aging. Green Tea is also anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and has high levels of amino acids which soothe, clear, and deeply hydrate the skin. The high doses of polyphenols help to maintain the skin’s integrity and leave it looking and feeling refreshed.

Find It In: The Bitter Green Essence Toner is an antioxidant powerhouse that contains 33 different green vegetable extracts that are packed to the brim with antioxidants. One of the many is Green Tea which works to purify — smoothing skin texture and regulating oil production. The result: intensely hydrated, healthier-looking skin.

LONG STORY SHORT

Antioxidants are a crucial part of anyone’s routine and depending on your skin concerns, there’s an antioxidant for you. In fact, you might already have some of these in your routine. Skincare is all about finding the ingredients that work best for you so don’t feel pressured to add all of these to your routine.

Keyword: Antioxidant Power

You may have heard the term superfood being thrown around all of the time especially when it comes to fruit or veggies. From antioxidant-packed Acai to nourishing Avocado, what exactly are superfoods, and why are they so amazing for your skin? Let’s dive in!

What are superfoods?

Well, according to Harvard, this trendy buzzword first makes its origins in the early 20th century during World War l. Clever food companies latched onto the term as a food marketing strategy to boost the sales of banana. But, this term isn’t just about marketing gimmicks. Fast forward to the 21st century and nowadays this label generally refers to a food source that contains multiple health benefits whether it be for your skin or something as crucial as lowering your blood pressure. While it may have started as a marketing strategy, superfoods now have the research to back up their benefits especially when it comes to your skin.

Superfoods = Antioxidant Powerhouses

Let’s keep it real — almost any fruit or vegetable can be seen as a superfood and while that bursts the bubble on crazed food marketing that doesn’t mean these ingredients aren’t worth the hype. In fact, we definitely believe in the hype! We’re sure you know by now that fruits and vegetables are amazing for the body. Their high doses of vital vitamins and minerals are an essential component to a healthy diet but what we love the most about them is their high antioxidant power.

Antioxidants are one of the most important parts of your skin and food routine as they work to combat free radical damage. Our bodies (including our skin) go through a lot of external and internal stress on an everyday basis from pollution, cigarette smoke, lack of sleep, and even poor nutrition, and these can impact our body negatively by triggering oxidative stress.

Oxidative stress occurs when your body produces more toxins than it can get rid of. As they accumulate in excess, it causes your cells to function poorly and can even result in cell death. This manifests in your outwards appearance as premature aging, loss of elasticity, uneven skin tone and texture, and beyond. The most effective way to fight against these free radicals is with antioxidants as they work as your cell’s bodyguards neutralizing free radicals and preventing cellular damage. Unfortunately, our bodies don’t produce enough antioxidants to fight free radicals on their own so it’s important to supplement this by having a diet rich in antioxidant foods as well as applying antioxidant-rich products.

Our Favorite Antioxidant-Rich Products

The Bitter Green Essence Toner is the perfect antioxidant edition for any routine. It comes jam-packed with 33 different antioxidant-rich green vegetable extracts. The potent green complex contains a purifying combo of artichoke, broccoli, and matcha green tea that hydrates and clarifies helping to smooth unwanted texture and protect skin from dehydration. This powerful blend provides the skin with a mega-dose of antioxidants that will nourish and soothe while safeguarding it from premature aging. Think of it as your bodyguard from environmental stressors that’ll keep your skin looking young and fresh.

LONG STORY SHORT

💚If you didn’t know, now you know that antioxidants are a must-have in your skincare routine. Not only do they provide your skin with healthy doses of hydration but they also work hard to fight premature aging leaving you with an ageless glow.
