Your Antioxidant-Filled Perfect Skin Care Day
Antioxidants can help beautify and protect our skin. It’s not difficult to use antioxidants regularly and make them part of your skin care routine. We’ve devised a full day of skin care practices and products that ensure you have an antioxidant-filled skin regimen.
There are products for every type of skin. For oily and combination skin use a product can help clarify. Garnier SkinActive’s Clean+ Balancing Gel Exfoliator is a great option for oily and combination skin. Its formula is infused with grapefruit and pomegranate, which help cleanse skin. It also gently exfoliates, for a deep clean that will leave skin feeling soft.
For normal skin try Garnier SkinActive’s Clean+ Invigorating Daily Scrub formulated with peppermint extract to energize skin. The jojoba beads deeply cleanse yet it’s gentle enough to use on a daily basis.
2. Lighten The Appearance Of Dark Spots
Use products formulated with Vitamin C to help fade the appearance of dark spots over time. “Dark spots on the skin can be caused by sun damage,” says Board-Certified Garnier Consulting Dermatologist Dr. Madfes, MD. “Topical Vitamin C is a mild exfoliator and can help fade the appearance of brown spots over time with continued daily use.”
Look for natural acids, amino acids, and antioxidants such as green tea or reservatrol to help soften, cleanse and smooth your skin. After exfoliation your skin will be prepped to absorb your other products.
A moisturizer is a key component of any good skin care routine. For dry skin you can look for formulas that are hydrating and nourishing, such as ones with glycerin or ceramides. A great product formulated with both antioxidants and humectants is Garnier SkinActive’s Miracle Anti-Fatigue Wake-Up Hydra-Gel Moisturizer. It’s a unique moisturizer that is a fast-absorbing liquid-gel. It’s infused with 15 percent hydra-glycerin (a known humectant) and an antioxidant complex of wild berry and Vitamins C and E. It helps reduce the appearance of fine lines for fresh and youthfully radiant-looking skin.
For day to day use, it’s important to use a product with SPF that helps protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. A bonus is finding products with both sunscreen and antioxidants to help protect skin from free radicals and environmental damage. Sun exposure is the number one cause of skin damage and can harm your skin even on cloudy days. Garnier SkinActive’s Clearly Brighter Brightening and Smoothing Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 infused with Vitamin C and E, pine bark essence, and gentle exfoliating Lipo-Hydroxyl Acid (LHA)is fast absorbing and non-greasy. Its formula helps give skin a more radiant tone over time with continued use.
5. Use An Overnight Mask (AKA Sleeping Mask)
Garnier SkinActive’s Miracle Anti-Fatigue Sleeping Cream has the power of a mask with the simplicity of a cream. Infused with antioxidant Vitamin E, lavender essential oil, hyaluronic and hydroxy acids when applied to your skin it helps renew, intensely hydrate and even skin’s appearance. It will help your skin do its best work while you sleep. It’s easy to incorporate antioxidants into your skin care when you have the right products. Your skin will thank you for protecting it from free radicals and properly cleansing, restoring and moisturizing it.
