Antioxidants are vital to your skin health. They are responsible for limiting the production of free radicals, which damage skin cells as well as collagen supplies and reduce the signs of ageing. Antioxidants repair and protect skin against the elements like sun, wind and cold, which is also known as environmental damage.
In particular, there are a few core antioxidant ingredients that can make a significant difference to your skin's health. These include:
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin E
- Vitamin B3 Nicotinamide
VITAMIN C - Is a potent anti-oxidant which encourages the production of collagen. Skin brightening, increased elasticity and reduction of pigmentation are other significant advantages this vitamin offers. Firmer skin tissue can result from the use of Vitamins A and C. Tip There are many forms of Vitamin C and some are more effective than others. Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate (VC-IP for short) is an oil soluble form of Vitamin C which enters skin cells very easily and can be up to 7 times more effective than water soluble forms of Vitamin C. This is the most efficient, stable and non-irritating form of Vitamin C.
VITAMIN A as Retinyl Palmitate. This form of Vitamin A is effective, gentle and non-irritating. Skin damage caused by environmental damage like UV rays and pollution can be improved by using Retinyl Palmitate. Vitamin A is a fantastic skin rejuvenating ingredient, it can help to thicken skin tissue which is very advantageous for mature skins. Any problem skins, like Rosacea and Acne will also benefit greatly from the healing and rejuvenating benefits of Vitamin A.
VITAMIN E In addition to helping increase the efficacy of Vitamins C & A, Vitamin E also removes free radicals which cause skin ageing. It also acts as a preservative to ensure freshness and stability of the oils. Greater penetration and effectiveness is achieved by combining Vitamins A C & E.
VITAMIN B3 (Nicotinamide) Is excellent for fighting the signs of ageing, evens skin tone and strengthens skin barrier. More specifically, Vitamin B3 has been found to stimulate collagen which helps to increase moisture levels in the skin which in turn reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
