5 Important Antioxidants For Aging Skin Care

Antioxidants are not only good for your body when ingested, but have shown remarkable results on your skin when used topically as well.

Topical antioxidants work to reduce free radicals, which are unstable small molecules which are generated by an oxygen environment. When free radicals are generated, oxidation will occur.

Vitamin C  is recognized as a powerful antioxidant, helping to increase collagen production, promote healing, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and minimize the appearance of scars.

Vitamin C can be found in skin care products as well, in several different forms such as L-Ascorbic Acid, Vitamin C Ester and Ascorbyl Palmitate.

Vitamin A, Tretinoin and Retinol are also effective antioxidants for the skin.
Tretinoin, available by prescription, is the strongest of the Vitamin A derivatives, but may be irritating to the skin.  Retinol, which does not require a prescription, is another form of Vitamin A that has shown similar results as Tretinoin.
Vitamin A has shown to help fight the signs of aging, as well as

Improve Elasticity
Reduce acne
increase skin hydration
decrease enlarged pores
increase collagen production
increase the thickness of the skin

Green Tea, when used topically has shown to repair sun damage, prevent premature aging, enhance skin tone, and stimulate new skin growth.  Green tea can be applied directly to the face by steeping the green tea bag (same way as if you were going to have a cup of green tea), allow it to cool and apply directly to the face using a cotton ball. It is best to do this in the evening and leave it on your face overnight. A simple effective green tea recipe can be found at http://natural-skin-care-remedies-4-u.blogspot.com.

Acai Oil contains anthocyanins and phyto-sterols that act as astringents keeping the skin taut, which results in fewer wrinkles.

Vitamin E helps to prevent premature aging, and protects and repairs sun damage. Vitamin E capsules can be found at most drug and grocery stores in liquid or capsule form. You can soak the capsules in hot water until the outer shell becomes soft, and squeeze the vitamin E gel out of the capsule. You can apply the gel directly to the face, or add a dab to the face cream or under-eye lotion you are currently using before you apply it to the face. (hint: this is what I do and can verify that it works very well).

Topical Vitamin E creams help decrease skin roughness, the depth of wrinkles, as well as the length of facial lines. Vitamin E also has shown to be useful in removing scars, eliminating stretch marks, treating of minor sunburn. Additionally, Vitamin E has also shown to bring about improvements in psoriasis and eczema.  Most Positive results were shown when used twice a day.
