3 ways to use moisturizer with antioxidants
Moisturizers are a necessary part of a daily skincare routine. Since we already have to add moisture to our face daily, it’s a doubly efficient idea to look for moisturizers formulated with skin-boosting ingredients like antioxidants. Antioxidants can possess a multitude of skin-protecting and skin-beautifying properties. They shield your skin from free radicals, which are miniscule particles that can accelerate aging and can cause damage to your skin. Secondly, antioxidants have the ability to revitalize, brighten, smooth and refine the appearance of your skin. This winning combination of protection and improvement of your skin makes it a no-brainer for you to get a moisturizer formulated with antioxidants. Let’s look at a few of your options for amping up your moisturizing routine.
1. Moisturizer With SPF
Every morning you should apply a moisturizer with SPF to protect your skin from the sun, regardless of whether you’re planning to spend time outside. Sun damage accounts for up to 90 percent of the skin’s aging process so using a broad-spectrum SPF of 15 or higher puts you on track for more youthful looking skin in the long run. Another ingredient that can make your skin appear more radiant and brighter? Vitamin C. It can help brighten the appearance of your skin which is particularly helpful when your skin is looking a little dull right after you wake up. Try Garnier SkinActive’s Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Moisturizer SPF15 infused with antioxidant Vitamin C and E, pine bark essence and gently exfoliating lipo-hydroxyl acid (LHA). It has a light formula that goes on smoothly and protects your skin from the sun’s rays. If you’re looking for even stronger SPP protection without sacrificing the antioxidant boost, try Garnier The Antioxidant Super Moisturizer SPF 30. Your skin will be moisturized and shielded from free radicals.
2. Wake Up Moisturizer
Another product that can help skin look fresh and plump is a wake up moisturizer. A product formulated with antioxidants and the right humectants can help make your skin look more radiant and ready for the day ahead with a flawless complexion. Garnier SkinActive’s Miracle Anti-Fatigue Wake-Up Hydra-Gel Moisturizer is infused with an antioxidant complex of wild berry, Vitamins C and E, hydra-glycerin, and hyaluronic acid can improve the appearance of your skin making it look more youthful by improving the appearance of fine lines.
3. Wrinkle-Fighting Moisturizer
Antioxidants can also have a smoothing, lightly exfoliating and plumping effect on your skin which make them perfect for improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Garnier SkinActive’s Ultra-Lift Anti-Wrinkle Firming Moisturizer is a lightweight, non-greasy daily moisturizer formulated with vitamin E, pro-retinol (a form of Vitamin A) and rice peptides which deeply hydrate skin. This moisturizer can help minimize the look of wrinkles and improve skin’s elasticity as skin regains its youthful appearance. Apply before you go to sleep.
