What are antioxidants and why do I need them in my skincare routine?
Simply put, antioxidants are fighters! They fight against free radicals which are unstable molecules that can cause harm if their levels become too high in your body. They are responsible for breaking down our skin's collagen, resulting in blemishes, wrinkles, dark spots, fine lines and even saggy skin. Free radicals are present in every day life: smoke, pollution and fatty acids just to name a few. When using products that are high in antioxidants, they can correct signs of aging, help prevent sunburn, damage and even bright and repair skin.
We’ve consciously formulated our Restore + Hydrate facial oils with natural ingredients that are super rich in antioxidants, such as Maracuja, Argan, Baobab, and Camellia oil. ⠀
Maracuja oil — used as a hero ingredient in our facial oils. Maracuja is naturally high in antioxidants and repairs damage, preserves collagen and elastin to tighten and smooth skin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Argan oil — also rich in antioxidants, helps to heal damaged skin cells and reduce inflammation to promote the healing and tightening of fine lines and wrinkles.
Camellia oil — packed full of anti-aging polyphenol antioxidants; it’s powerful anti-oxidizing quality removes free radicals from the skin, reducing the skin of wrinkles and fine lines. Containing many of the same antioxidant qualities as green tea, it helps to repair your skin from the effects of pollution and UV rays.
