Odds are most of your skincare products contain antioxidants, but did you know they don’t all work the same way? Find out if you’re using the right ones in your daily routine.
What are antioxidants?
Your skin is constantly bombarded by damaging environmental toxins, particularly UVA/UVB rays and pollution, which create free radicals that weaken your skin (insert more wrinkles, dark spots, and fine lines here).
Antioxidants help neutralize free radicals before they have a chance to hijack healthy cells. This means your skin looks younger, longer—even when exposed to environmental toxins.
Which antioxidant should I use?
According to research done by the National Institutes of Health, the two most potent antioxidants for skin are vitamin C and vitamin E, found in a variety of fruits, natural oils, and butters. These powerhouse ingredients go above and beyond fighting free radicals.
Vitamin C helps even skin tone and reduce the appearance of dark spots, while vitamin E is a potent moisturizer for supple, smooth, and healthy looking skin.
Where can I find them?
There are lots of Posh products that are packed with vitamin C and others that are full of vitamin E, but each antioxidant has unique properties that help it defend against various pollutants, which means skin shows better results when you use them together. These two Core products contain tons of BOTH, so you get more bang for your buck when pampering skin:
