By now, we all know the importance of wearing SPF each and every day.
Protecting your skin against sun is essential to the overall health and appearance of your skin. Damaged caused by UVA and UVB rays can result in the formation of dark spots on your skin, uneven texture and can even cause the formation of fine lines and wrinkles on your complexion, accentuating the early signs of ageing.
Recently, with growing concern around the impacts of air pollution on our skin, many have suggested wearing SPF alone is not enough to completely protect your skin and keep your complexion looking youthful and radiant.
Incorporating antioxidants into your routine may just be what you need to offer complete protection from environmental aggressors to your skin. Acting almost as a booster for your SPF, antioxidants offer an active level of protection, fighting the impacts of free radicals on your skin.
Why are antioxidants good for the skin?
Put simply, antioxidants are a way of boosting our natural immunity to sun damage and boosting the protection offered by our SPF. Most effective in the form of a serum in order to penetrate the skin most effectively, antioxidants counteract free radiacals produced by many SPF products as they absorb UV rays.
As free radicals are responsible for dullness, redness and the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, using an antioxdiant serum to minmise their damage is essential if you long for a glowing, youthful complexion.
