Antioxidants 101 in Skincare

Antioxidants 101 in Skincare

Antioxidants are nature's own defense force against oxidative stress—a perpetrator of skin aging and dullness—caused by environmental aggressors like pollution, UV rays, and tobacco smoke. By scavenging free radicals, antioxidants safeguard the skin's integrity, curtail the signs of aging, and bolster your skin's natural glow.

The Top Antioxidants for Skincare

While there's an extensive list of antioxidants, some have risen as superstars within the skincare realm:

  • Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) is known for its brightening and collagen-promoting properties.
  • Vitamin E enhances healing and offers moisturizing benefits, often synergistically with vitamin C.
  • Ferulic acid increases the efficacy and stability of vitamins C and E, further amplifying their protective effects.

Our brightening formulation harnesses the power of these ingredients in the Maria Kane Brightening CE Ferulic Serum. Boasting a potent blend of 15% L-ascorbic acid, vitamin E, and ferulic acid, this preservative-free daily serum dives deep into your skin's surface, not just promising but delivering luminance, vitality, and protection against oxidative stress.

Incorporating Antioxidants into Your Skincare Routine

Integrate antioxidants into your AM and PM routines, especially during the day, to combat daytime oxidative stress. Start with a cleanser, follow up with a toner, and then apply your Brightening CE Ferulic Serum for maximum absorption. Finally, layer on moisturizer and sunscreen to finish your routine.

The Science Behind Antioxidants and Skincare

Antioxidants operate on a cellular level to prevent damage to DNA, proteins, and lipids. The result? Mitigated inflammation, lessened hyperpigmentation, and a reinforcement of the skin barrier function.

Antioxidants for Different Skin Types

How do you choose the right antioxidant product?

Evaluate ingredient labels and product reputations. Your best bet is serums with clear efficacy and science-backed backing, like those by Maria Kane.

How quickly will you notice the effects?

While some immediate improvement might be seen, especially in skin brightness, the protective and corrective properties typically manifest over several weeks of consistent use.
