Antioxidants play a critical role in skincare by neutralizing free radicals (charged particles) that can damage skin cells which may result in skin cancer as well as photoaging. Photoaging includes thinning of the skin, telangiectasia or dilated blood vessels, irregular pigment such as age spots and texture irregularity.
Antioxidants protect the skin from oxidative stress caused by factors like UV radiation and pollution. Antioxidants like vitamins C and E, niacinamide, vitamin A (retinols), selenium, zinc, and some botanicals help prevent or slow down aging, improve skin texture, stimulate collagen production, reduce inflammation, and support healing process.
Melissa Langley MD Aesthetics carries numerous products that are excellent in their science as well as cosmetically elegant:

There are additional products in the office that include antioxidants to supplement other active ingredients.
Antioxidants play a vital role in protecting the skin from oxidative stress, stimulating collagen production, improving hydration, delaying wrinkle formation, promoting even skin tone, brightening the skin, reducing inflammation, and supporting the skin’s natural repair processes.
Antioxidants are a must to help prevent damage and are mandatory to have in one’s skin care regimen. Sunscreen alone is not enough to maintain and preserve healthy skin!!
