Ingredience Haul: The 411 on antioxidants

skinphd1Antioxidants are in almost all skincare, from shampoo to bar soap.  People swear by these age-fighting helpers, but do most of us even know what they are?  Allow me to explain.

 

What are antioxidants?

In a nutshell, antioxidants absorb free-radicals  inside cells. Since we’re talking about skin, we’ll say skin cells. Generally speaking, free-radicals cause cells to break down, which can age skin.  On a grand scale,  free-radicals can also attribute to cancer and illness.  Free-radicals are caused by  bad health and bodily pollution caused by the environment, or by you ( i.e. smoking, drinking etc.)

Where do antioxidants come from?

In nature, all fruits and veggies are filled with antioxidants;  especially fruit.  Different colors mean different types of antioxidants.  Berries, melons, carrots, you name it, nature has an antioxidant for you.  In skin care,  most antioxidants are synthetic. This is a good thing because it means the antioxidant is in a stable form that will allow the skin to utilize the antioxidant most efficiently when topically applied.

What’s the bottom line?

Antioxidants are very good to have in skin care because they help skin retain its youth, and helps us fight free-radical damage with regular use.  On the other hand,  topical application is no substitute for good health, and the whole body needs antioxidants, not just the skin!

When should I start using antioxidants in skincare?

Immediately! Antioxidants come in the form of vitamins, like C, B, etc.  You can never be too young to take your vitamins.  Skin PhD has many products that utilize the power of antioxidants in the perfect skincare cocktail.  Click here to learn more.
