Fight Aging Skin with Antioxidants
I am sure you heard of antioxidants and the unlimited benefits they can provide for your skin. Antioxidants are substances that can prevent or slow damage to cells caused by free radicals, unstable molecules that the body produces as a reaction to environmental and other pressures. By reducing inflammation, antioxidants allow skin to repair itself and correct visible damage. Sometimes listed as ascorbic acid on product labels, Vitamin C is a dermatologist-favorite ingredient for your skin. Vitamin C is a strong antioxidant that binds and neutralizes harmful free radicals from the skin. As a bonus, vitamin C is known to stimulate the production of collagen which helps your skin to look youthful. All in all, a win-win in my book!
Not all vitamin C products are created equal. The 3 products I always recommend are SkinCeuticals brand CE Ferulic, Phloretin and Resveratrol. CE Ferulic 15% pure vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid), 1% vitamin E (alpha tocopherol), and 0.5% ferulic acid to enhance protection against environmental damage caused by free radicals that can contribute to atmospheric aging. Phloretin is a patented triple antioxidant formulation that visibly improves the appearance of discoloration, fine lines and uneven skin tone. This potent vitamin C serum features a synergistic combination of 2% phloretin, 10% pure vitamin C (l-ascorbic acid), and 0.5% ferulic acid. Resveratrol contains pure, stable resveratrol, a potent antioxidant, plus 0.5% baicalin and 1% alpha tocopherol (vitamin E) to strengthen and support the skin's natural defense system. I recommend either CE Ferulic or Phloretin in the morning, and Resveratrol in the evening.
