As the seasons change, everything needs to adjust, including your skin. With the radical change of temperature, your skin can take on the brunt of these changes. By ramping up the number of antioxidants in your body, you can potentially fight off harmful free-radicals. Left with free rein these free radicals will contribute to signs of ageing and result in a dull, lacklustre complexion. With that in mind, we thought we would share our top antioxidants for your skin this Autumn.
Top 5 Antioxidants for your Skin this Autumn:
1: Vitamin C
An oil-soluble antioxidant that is pH neutral and helps to illuminate and protect. It also helps to firm the surface of the skin and promotes elasticity by stimulating collagen-producing activity in the dermis for a radiant complexion.
2: Vitamin B (Niacinamide)
This calming antioxidant helps to protect the skin’s cell DNA. This, in turn, helps to lessen further fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin B is anti-inflammatory to help promote even skin tone by reducing discolouration and redness.
This powerful antioxidant derived from red grape skins is high in polyphenol and protective properties. It is excellent at adding glow and hydration. Resveratrol also interrupts and helps rebuff negative environmental influences, and brightens a tired-looking complexion. It also has significant calming properties that may help minimise the look of redness.
4: Vitamin A (Retinol)
Vitamin A has the powerful ability to reverse DNA damage while promoting the growth of collagen. This helps to minimise the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, and uneven complexion. Retinol also helps to smooth skin texture and allow for ultimate absorption of other ingredients
5: Vitamin E
Finally, Vitamin E. This is a well-known fat-soluble vitamin that provides significant antioxidant benefits. It also has anti-inflammatory properties which help to stabilise the skin’s barrier. This helps to reduce skin damage and limit water loss, preventing dehydration.
