4 POWERFUL ANTIOXIDANTS TO CONSIDER ADDING TO YOUR DAILY SKINCARE REGIMEN

December 20, 2020

WHAT ARE ANTIOXIDANTS?

Antioxidants are vitamins and other nutrients that help protect your cells from the damaging effects of free radicals. Free radicals are harmful molecules because they have an unpaired electron.  Antioxidants donate their extra electrons to the free radicals thereby neutralizing the free radicals before they can harm your healthy cells.

 

ANTIOXIDANTS AND SKIN AGING

Free radicals formed in reaction to environmental aggressors and lifestyle can contribute to the appearance of skin aging. Daily application of skincare products containing antioxidants provides added protection against the damaging effects of free radicals.  Some of the most powerful antioxidants known are Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Resveratrol and Green Tea Polyphenols.

 

VITAMIN C

Daily topical application of Vitamin C has been proven to support healthy skin functions, resulting in skin that appears brighter, firmer and smoother. Clinical research of Vitamin C show improvements in visible skin tone evenness and increased skin luminosity.

 

VITAMIN E

VITAMIN E

Vitamin E works to protect and defend skin from free radicals and inflammatory triggers that prompt skin health degradation. Skincare formulas containing Vitamin E have demonstrated results in helping defend skin from stressors caused by UV rays in sunlight.

 

RESVERATROL

Resveratrol is a powerful antioxidant derived from red wine and berries. It is proven to help protect the skin’s surface layer from environmentally derived stressors. Continued use of Resveratrol can reduce the incidence of dull skin and support a radiant looking complexion.

 

GREEN TEA POLYPHENOLS

Green Tea Polyphenols purified to 80% or higher provide an extra line of defense against damaging free radicals and environmental stressors. In addition to protection, GTP is clinically proven to calm and soothe compromised skin, preventing visible redness or irritations.

 

How to add all 4 of these powerful antioxidants to your skincare regimen:

EvenGlow is MGMD's newest addition and it's already a favorite! This Multi-Antioxidant serum contains high potency, stabilized Vitamin C plus Vitamin E and Green Tea Polyphenols.

A few drops spread on your face every morning will help address the visible signs of aging: dullness, discoloration, lines and wrinkles while neutralizing damaging free radicals.

 

 

Antioxidant Green Tea Cream CF is an MGMD best-seller.  It contains highly concentrated green tea polyphenols in addition to Resveratrol, the scientifically proven popular antioxidant derived from red wine. This light cream (actually more like a serum) is highly effective at reducing inflammation and is a game changer for sensitive and irritated skin suffered by people with eczema (like me) and Rosacea.  

I recommend using this product immediately after washing your face.  3-4 pumps is sufficient.  Follow this with a few drops of EvenGlow and you will see and feel the difference.
