The Hype Around Antioxidants Is Real. Here’s Why.

 

While there is no such thing as a miracle skin care ingredient, a proper routine with antioxidants will noticeably change the condition of your skin as they help boost your skin’s health from the inside out.

There are so many beauty buzzwords and ingredient trends in the skin care industry it’s hard to know which ones you need to take seriously – but the hype around antioxidants is here to stay, and for good reason. You probably know that antioxidants are a good thing, they’re notoriously prevalent in almost every superfood out there, but you may not know why you need them in your skin care routine. While there is no such thing as a miracle skin care ingredient, a proper routine with antioxidants will noticeably change the condition of your skin as they help boost your skin’s health from the inside out.

As the name implies, antioxidants fight oxidation – a chemical process that produces free radicals. While young, healthy skin naturally supplies plenty of antioxidants, mature skin isn’t so great at this. That’s why it’s instrumental that any skin care routine includes products to protect from the many factors that produce free radicals; things like the sun, pollution and smoke.

While there is an array of antioxidant ingredients in skincare, there are a few standouts in this group. Pamela Metamorphosis founder, Pamela Hill RN, formulated her products with proven ingredients to treat multiple skin concerns. Knowing which antioxidant products you should use can be overwhelming, so we’ve broken down the essentials and why you need them.

Gentle Cleanser
The first step in clearing the free radicals and environmental damage from your skin is cleansing. A gentle cleanser with a mild retinol or exfoliating agent reveals a clean, smooth surface that your treatment products can effectively penetrate.

Vitamin C Serum
Vitamin C has long been considered the gold standard in antioxidant skincare. It has calming and hydrating properties that help the skin withstand the environment’s skin aggressors. It’s a staple for those concerned with uneven tone/texture, brown spots, aging-skin and a dull complexion.

Vitamin A (Retinol) Serum
Similar to Vitamin C, Retinol has a longstanding reputation as one of the most effective ingredients in skin care. It’s both a skin-restoring ingredient and an antioxidant, providing a solution for almost every skin care issues imaginable. Its impressive ability to increase the cell turnover rate, which decreases as we age, leaves your skin consistently regenerating itself to reveal clear skin.

Green Tea Moisturizer
Polyphenols, the naturally occurring micronutrients found in green tea, are packed with antioxidants and provide skin-soothing properties. Paired with Vitamin C and Plankton Extract, your skin will drink up this light-weight, fast-absorbing moisturizer.

SPF
You know our thoughts on sunscreen. You always need it. No Exceptions. Just remember it’s especially important when you’re using active skin care ingredients in your routine as your skin is extra sensitive to light (both natural and artificial) during this time.

FRESH Towels
In an ideal world, you’re following your skin care routine religiously, morning and night. But we know life happens. Don’t worry, we have the perfect solution. FRESH Facial Cleansing Towels are perfect to use every day to take off your makeup or the grime of the day. They are also great post work out or during travel. With the key ingredients in FRESH towels being Aloe Vera Gel, Green Tea Extract and Cucumber Fruit Extract, your skin will be primed for free radical fighting.
