The Benefits of Using Antioxidants on the Skin

benefits-of-using-antioxidants-skinceuticals-serumAntioxidants are an important part of any anti-aging skincare regimen.  Antioxidants are one of the few ingredients that actually prevent future damage to the skin.  Dr. Schweiger explains that, "Antioxidants work by blocking free radical damage to the skin, which can otherwise cause breakdown of collagen.  By protecting the skin from collagen breakdown, free radicals prevent the formation of fine lines and improve the texture of the skin." Dr. Schweiger's favorite antioxidant serum is SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic.  This antioxidant serum is unique in that it contains the most effective form of its antioxidants (a combination of L-ascorbic acid, alpha tocopherol, and ferulic acid) to protect the skin and promote skin health and anti-aging.  Additionally, this serum absorbs well into the skin, which results in a continued benefit to the skin for up to 72 hours after one application.  Even if you cleanse your skin, the active ingredients in this antioxidant serum continue to work within the skin. Another one of the many benefits of using antioxidants on the skin is that they deliver a potent anti-aging effect, without causing irritation to the skin.  Unlike the other strong anti-aging ingredients, such as retinoids, antioxidants do not cause dryness or redness on the skin.  They are soothing and can often be found in elegant serums and moisturizing formulations. SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic acid is available for purchase at Schweiger Dermatology.  We are proud to offer our patients what we consider to be the best anti-aging antioxidant serum available for their skin.
