You can hardly pick up any skin care product without seeing the word “antioxidants.”
The word has become synonymous with “good for your skin.” But, don’t be daunted by the scientific-sounding title – you can understand how they work and use them as part of your skincare routine!
Think of an apple – if you slice it and leave it out, soon the exposed fruit will turn brown. This is oxidization, which leads to the deterioration of a living organism, whether it’s a piece of fruit, or your skin!
Antioxidants, as their name implies, prevent oxidization to keep skin looking fresh and youthful. This is why when you coat an apple slice with lemon juice it will not turn brown. The antioxidants in the lemon juice are doing their job.
The same is true of antioxidants on your skin, but they need to be the right ones. Dr. Jaliman has packed our Sea Radiance Gentle Cleanser with powerful antioxidants that will be most effective to help your skin combat aging on a daily basis.
Chamomilla recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract – this wild chamomile contains the antioxidant flavonoids.
Tocopherol Nicotinate – another name for Vitamin E, a potent antioxidant and longtime favorite in skincare.
Aloe Vera contains antioxidant vitamins A, C and E. Three amazing vitamins in one little plant! It is also anti-inflammatory, so it takes redness out of your skin.
Essential oils blend made from green tea – contains polyphenols, a powerful source of additional antioxidants.
Now that you know how antioxidants work, you can incorporate these powerful ingredients into your daily skincare routine to help keep your skin healthy and vibrant for years to come.
