When to Use Antioxidants in Skincare

One of the most applied words in high performing skincare is ‘antioxidants’ and so we all know how important they are for great looking skin, but many of us are not sure how to actually use them in our skincare routine. To keep it simple, using good natural face products that are packed with antioxidants like Nakin’s Anti-Ageing Skincare in the morning and evening is an easy way to incorporate antioxidants into your face regime. Find out more about how to use antioxidants in skincare below.

Antioxidants are vitamin and mineral molecule substances that are really beneficial for skin when used on a daily basis, as a food supplement or in a topical skincare application. The reason that they are so important is because they help to neutralise oxidative stress, which can come from many things in everyday life. This includes skin damagers such as UV light & and pollution, which put stress onto skin. The antioxidants work so well as they help to neutralise the distress that they cause.

We recommend applying antioxidants to skin in both the morning and evening, so the face and neck has a continuous stream of protection. They should be applied after cleansing to protect it for the day or night ahead. At Nakin all of our products are filled with antioxidants from their nutrient rich formulas, including our cleansers. This is because our Natural Skincare is formulated with masses of plant ingredients which are naturally filled with vitamins and minerals. We always prefer natural antioxidants in skincare products over synthetic versions, such as retinol from vitamin A. This is because they are kind to skin and work holistically.

Lots of antioxidant vitamins and minerals combined together offer more to skin than just protecting from free radical damage, and they can help it in all sorts of ways. Each vitamin and mineral will have its own unique properties and some of these include boosting collagen production, healing damaged skin, reducing inflammation and supporting cell division. The special thing about having a variety of antioxidants in skincare is that they have a synergistic effect, meaning that they boost the affects of each other, for a more potent antioxidant benefit to skin.
