ANTIOXIDANT BREAKDOWN + BENEFITS.

What are antioxidants and what are the skincare benefits? Below I explain each one and list my favourite products that contain each ingredient.

The below are affiliate links so I will make a small commission from any sales. I really appreciate anything you buy through these links as it helps support me in the work I do.

VITAMIN A
aka retinol. Helps promote cell turnover and collagen for plump, dewy skin.

 

VITAMIN B3
aka Niacinamide. Helps skin barrier stay healthy and strong, while also targeting pigmentation and pores.

 

VITAMIN C
aka L ascorbic acid. Helps brighten the skin tone while protecting it from environmental damage. Also helps stimulate collagen for plump skin.

 

VITAMIN D
helps decrease inflammation and soothe skin.

 

VITAMIN E
neutralises free radicals and is also very soothing, this forms a physical barrier to help skin heal.

 

MIX THEM TOGETHER!
there are many amazing products that mix two or more antioxidants, so you can get the added benefits of them all!
