Antioxidants are the first and best line of defence for your skin against aging that are scientifically proven to work, there is no doubt that they should be included as an essential part of your daily skincare regime. Science has proven that exposure to the sun's ultraviolet rays (UVA and UVB rays), smoke and air pollution generates harmful free radical molecules in the skin that break down collagen leading to signs of premature aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, loss of elasticity, pigmentation and skin cancer. Scientists calculate that free radicals account for approximately 90% of perceived skin aging. Most people are unaware that harmful UVA can penetrate through glass and clothes and most sunscreens do not protect you against UVA. Antioxidants protect against harmful UVA and UVB rays and neutralise free radicals, so not only do they help prevent the damage to the skin’s support structure but they also prevent the visible signs of aging by stimulating collagen. The science behind antioxidants is so compelling that many doctors encourage their patients to use topical antioxidants prior to surgical procedures to help prepare their skin for surgery, to enable a faster recovery, and a better surgical result.
Skinceuticals are world renowned for producing the highest quality antioxidants. All Skinceuticals antioxidants contain L-Ascorbic acid, also known as Vitamin C, which provide the following key benefits to the skin: they neutralise harmful free radicals, protect against sun damage caused by UVB and UVA , regenerate Vitamin E and other antioxidants, prevent UV immunosuppression, reduce inflammation, promote healing, and lighten skin and stimulates collagen growth. Skinceuticals L-Ascorbic acid is uniquely delivered in a form that the body is able to absorb and been scientifically tested to be delivered at the correct pH on the skin so that it can most effectively penetrate into the skin's deeper layer, and once applied it can remain on the skin for days without being washed, rubbed or perspired off. Skinceuticals L-Ascorbic acid has been proven to be absorbed into the skin in a high concentration, higher amounts then would otherwise be possible to obtain through oral vitamin supplements.
