The Role Of Anti-Oxidants In Skincare

Dr Lauren Knight, a board certified Dermatologist said:

Topical antioxidants have been shown to have a host of benefits for the skin. The main benefits been shown in skincare include:

  • Protection against UV damage: We know that the sun is the main culprit in ageing of the skin in what we call photo ageing.  This ageing occurs by the sun damaging DNA of the cells which ultimately limits the number of times a cell can repair itself which leads to ageing. Antioxidants may help give a protective effect against UV damage when combined with sunscreen.
  • Calm inflammation: Free radicals by their very nature create inflammation. Antioxidants can help reduce inflammation and may have a soothing effect on the skin. This is typically seen with Niacinamide for example.
  • Slow premature aging: Topical antioxidants can make the skin look more youthful by improving skin tone and texture, evening out pigmentation as well as increasing collagen synthesis. Additionally they protect against extrinsic aging (for instance, premature aging caused by external factors like chronic sun exposure, smoking, pollution, and more).

What Are Your Anti-Oxidants?

The list of anti-oxidants includes:

  • Vitamin C & E;
  • Resveratrol;
  • Niacinamide;
  • and Co-Enzyme Q10.

New To Oxidative Care at SKIN functional

Launching this month is the new 12% Ascorbic Acid + Briteodant Complex serum. This is a formulation ensures the delivery of Ascorbic Acid, which is the most powerful form of Vitamin C. We don’t ingest sufficient quantities of Ascorbic Acid, so it is important to apply it topically. The Briteodant Complex™ is a powerful complex that brightens and evens the skin complexion, resulting in more even skin tone.

  • Added benefits include: Increased Collagen production.
  • 30ml dropper bottle for R270,00 available on

Another valuable addition to SKIN functional’s Anti-Oxidant product offering is the Q10 + Peptides serum. This product provides a balanced treatment that repairs, rebuilds, and protects skin. It is formulated with natural yet powerful Co-Enzyme Q10, which protects against skin damage while regenerating the skin and reducing the effects of photo-ageing. Peptides increase Collagen production, which decreases fine lines and wrinkles.
