Are you underestimating the power of antioxidants in your daily skincare routine? These incredible ingredients work to prevent and repair damage from those nasty little particles known as free radicals. Keeping your regimen stocked with a healthy supply of antioxidant skincare is one of the best ways to keep your skin happy and glowing. Here’s everything you need to know.
What are antioxidants in skincare?
Antioxidants refer to substances or ingredients that fight free radicals in your body. When used within skincare, this helps to maintain youthful-looking skin, reduce inflammation and achieve an overall glow.
Some antioxidants you might already be familiar with would be:
Vitamin C & E (found in our Facial Hydrator Serum)
- Vitamin A
And of course, our star ingredient here at Alivio Wellness: Hemp Seed Oil (but more on that a little later.)
Antioxidant skincare benefits
Protects the skin from free radicals:
Antioxidants predominantly work to fight off free radical molecules that cause premature ageing and a lack of hydration in the skin. Daily we encounter harsh environmental stressors that threaten the strength of our skin barriers, but we can use antioxidant skincare to counteract this. With the ability to both prevent and repair free radical damage, every skin type can feel the benefit of antioxidants.
Boosts collagen production:
Those concerned with maintaining a youthful glow to their skin should be embracing the magic of antioxidants. Not only do they help to boost the production of collagen, but they also encourage elastin. This means a reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for healthy, hydrated skin.
Antioxidants also help with reducing inflammation in the skin, jointly soothing and calming, while encouraging cell turnover. This is particularly beneficial to those who struggle with acne or sensitivity, looking to heal and repair.
Softens and hydrates:
Rough and textured skin is a common concern, but boosting your use of antioxidants in your skincare routine can help smooth and soften. These ingredients help to retain hydration and keep your skin baby soft. A healthy boost of moisture will also aid in reducing the appearance of skin texture for a more even tone.
