Antioxidants are extremely important for skin health and are often overlooked as an important part of one’s daily skincare regimen. Antioxidants protect our skin by limiting the production of free radicals. Free radicals typically come from air pollutants, smog, lack of sleep and/or exercise, stress, illness, fried foods, tobacco, alcohol, pesticides and UV rays. All of the listed free radicals cause damage to the living skin cells and result in rapid aging and inflammation.

Antioxidants, along with sunscreen, are important to help prevent damage to the skin. We always talk about the importance of sunscreen and that is because 80% of free radical damage is caused by UV rays (sun). Antioxidants also do a lot for both the health and appearance of your skin by reducing signs of aging before they even start. Below are our most powerful antioxidants for your skin.

SkinBetter Alto Defense Serum

This award-winning antioxidant improves skin tone and reduces redness when applied daily. This antioxidant is scientifically advanced and super potent. We typically recommend Alto Defense Serum for patients with sensitive skin as it typically causes less irritation than other prescription grade antioxidant products.

Benefits:

  • 19 antioxidants that neutralize free radicals
  • Enhances skin vitality and radiance
  • Promotes a more even skin tone
  • Results showing as early as 4 weeks

SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic

This antioxidant is highly concentrated and proven to penetrate deep into the skin. CE Ferulic is a daytime Vitamin C Serum that provides advanced protection against free radicals. This product is different than the rest because once the Vitamin C is absorbed it remains in the skin for 72 hours. It’s great for most skin types and works best for those with dry, dehydrated skin.

Benefits:

  • Improves fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improves loss of firmness
  • Brightens skin complexion

SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum

At Utah Facial Plastics we refer to SkinMedica TNS as “liquid gold”. TNS is an all-in-one rejuvenating serum that includes growth factors, potent antioxidants, peptides and other anti-aging ingredients. It’s also great for all skin types.

Benefits:

  • Enhances overall skin tone and texture
  • Improves fine lines and wrinkles
  • Promotes collagen

If you’re not incorporating an antioxidant into your daily skincare regimen, you really should be! For more information on the powerful antioxidants offered at Utah Facial Plastics, call (801) 776-2220 or contact us HERE.
