What are antioxidants?
Antioxidants are naturally occurring Vitamins (like Vitamins A, C and E) that may help to protect the skin’s surface from environmental stressors.
What do antioxidants do for skin?
Environmental stressors can accelerate the development of signs of aging (wrinkles and fine lines) in the skin. Antioxidants for skin help to protect against environmental stressors and delay these visible signs of aging.
Antioxidants in skincare can also offer other benefits, including plumper-looking skin and an evened out skin tone.
