Which Antioxidant Is Best For Your Skin Care Regimen?

[fa icon='calendar'] Feb 5, 2020 2:29:23 PM / by Dermatology Center for Skin Health, PLLC posted in skin care, skin health, Antioxidants

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

It is difficult to navigate the beauty aisle with confidence. With as many different skincare products on the market, you are probably wondering, “What ingredients should I be looking for?

In this article, we are going to address one of several ingredients to look for in your skincare regimen-antioxidants. Topical antioxidants are essential for your skin.

The formation of free radicals is widely accepted by scientists as a mechanism leading to aging skin. Free radicals, which are formed from the sun, pollution, stress and smoking, damage the DNA of the cell, which can lead to premature aging and skin cancer.

In addition, the production of free radicals increases with age, while our defense mechanisms that counter them decrease. This imbalance leads to the progressive damage of cellular structures, and thus, results in accelerated aging and possible skin cancer. Topical antioxidants are available in multivariate combinations through over-the-counter skincare products that are aimed at preventing the clinical signs of photoaging. Not all antioxidants are created equal.

Our dermatologists have put their heads together to develop this list on how to choose the best antioxidant for you! Continue reading below, and let us know if you have any questions.

Fun fact: Acne can occur at any stage of life and has the chance to continue even into your 40s. According to the American Academy of Dermatology Association, acne is the most common skin condition in the United States, and it affects up to 50 million individuals each year.  

Acne develops when an oily substance that lubricates your hair and skin called sebum and dead skin cells clog hair follicles. Bacteria triggers inflammation, and infections result in more severe acne. Acne is a broad term for blemishes such as whiteheads, blackheads and pimples.
