We know how to hit the reset button when our bodies are stressed, from breathing exercises to taking cat naps. But what do you do when your skin is stressed?
We’ve got a clinically-proven solution called antioxidants! To celebrate National Stress Awareness Day on April 16th, here’s what you need to know about these important compounds and how they can help keep your skin chilled out and looking calm, clear and beautiful.
Your body uses antioxidants, including vitamins C, E, B5 and beta-carotene, to protect your cells and tissue from the damaging effects that free radicals are perpetrating all the time. Free radicals are one of your skin’s worst enemies because they are destructive agents that speed aging by undermining your skin’s ability to produce healthy new collagen and elastin. Unfortunately, free-radicals are everywhere, naturally generated by our food, medicines, air, water, alcohol, tobacco smoke, pesticides and air pollutants.
The good news is that we know how to fight back and protect the benefits of your skin’s health, thanks to years of clinical research. We can stop the effects of free-radicals in their tracks with antioxidants, protective compounds that increase circulation and cell metabolism to help reduce the look and feel of inflammation. Less inflammation means the appearance of more even skin tone, fewer breakouts and diminished wrinkles.
Your body makes antioxidants naturally, and you can also help replenish your natural supply by eating foods rich in antioxidants, such as blueberries, artichokes, strawberries, kale, red cabbage, beans, beets and spinach. However, your fragile skin is particularly vulnerable to free-radicals and requires a protective boost of antioxidants to help shield it from life’s daily onslaught of pollution and stress. For this reason, we’ve formulated several antioxidant-rich formulations to help protect and maintain the look of vibrant skin.
