Protecting Skin From Damage with Antioxidants

February 4th, 2014

With yet another snow upon us protecting skin with antioxidants is imperative.  You may have noticed the ashen dullness that plagues dermal tissue in this weather.  Anti-aging natural face care has emerged to reverse the negative effects of the season.  Antioxidants offer reparative qualities with a shield that blocks ever present UV rays and free radicals that inhibit cell regeneration.

What face care offers antioxidants?

Now there are much lauded skincare products that include extracts from super foods, such as acai berries, to rejuvenate and protect the skin.  Fortunately, there are nourishing serums of the highest quality on the market with abundant antioxidants that fortify the skin against degrading microbes and environmental stressors.   Natural choices of sera are best because chemical additives and preservatives can render antioxidants useless in the end.


A concentrated dose of restorative vitamins and minerals effortlessly penetrate the pores to boost the health of skin when a moisturizing serum is applied daily.  Not only do you now how a barrier against damage, but a rejuvenating serum can also halt the arrival of the early signs of aging.  The fine lines and wrinkles that set in with premature demise of skin are visibly diminished.  In its place is a clear glowing appearance.

Many facial cleansers and moisturizers also have antioxidant ingredients to maintain youth and radiance.  Doctors and well-versed aestheticians at leading day spas know that this naturally occurring nutrient definitely helps to stave off the ravages of time, so those who desire can retain a ageless visage.  An antioxidant skincare regime can deflect the barrage of winter climate, so skin stays healthy.

Where else can I find antioxidants?

Derived from many of the dark berries and other fruits that should be a part a healthy diet, antioxidants have the ability to strengthen and heal dermal tissue.  Pomegranates and acai berries provide the most intense supply more than any other foods.  Cranberries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, and plums are some other notable fruits that offer high potency of this essential nutrient.  Red wine and green tea are popular and enjoyable source of the anti-O’s your body craves daily.

According to trusted source,, dermatologists agree that ‘the major antioxidants (vitamin A, C, and E) can help decrease the risk of sun and other environmental damage by disarming wrinkle-causing “free radicals” — unstable molecules that damage cells.’  The top day spas in NYC, including Joanna Vargas Skincare Sanctuary, will also share this wisdom during a consultation for a professional facial.
