Antioxidant Skin Care Benefits: How To Get Healthy Skin

Antioxidant Skin Care Benefits: How To Get Healthy Skin

You have probably heard of the importance of including antioxidants in your diet, but what about in your skin care? Antioxidants play a vital role in how your skin looks, functions, and ages. Read on to learn about different antioxidant benefits and how they can help your skin.

antioxidant benefit: fights free radicals

Ever watch a cut apple slice start to brown? That process is called oxidation – and it's caused by free radical destruction. Free radicals are highly unstable and reactive molecules that damage living cells. These can come from sunlight, smoking, everyday pollution and smog or other common stressors. Free radicals cause tissue damage, resulting in lines, dehydration and loss of volume.

Antioxidants are skin's superhero against free radicals. Vitamins C, A and E are potent antioxidants that helps protect the skin from the damage caused by free radicals.

antioxidant benefit: improves collagen + more

Protection against free radicals is only one of many antioxidant benefits; antioxidants can also increase collagen production. Why is collagen important for the skin? Collagen is your skin's main protein, and it helps keep your skin plump, firm and smooth. With time and poor lifestyle choices, collagen becomes weak and damaged, and antioxidants help to repair elasticity, lessen UV damage (although nothing will replace a broad spectrum sunscreen), ease inflammation, reduce breakouts and can improve texture. Simply stated: antioxidants make you skin function better, look better and feel better.

how to use topical antioxidants

When you include antioxidants in your diet (from foods like blueberries and dark green veggies), you are doing your body many favors, but unfortunately only a tiny percentage of those antioxidants will reach your skin. If you want the full range of antioxidant benefits, you will need to apply them topically as well. Thankfully antioxidants can be found in a multitude of different skin care products, from exfoliators to serumsand everything in between.
