How to overhaul your skin care routine with antioxidants skincare
Have you been feeling like your skin care products haven’t been giving you the glowing complexion you are looking for? If you’re looking to overhaul your skin care routine, look no further than skin care products formulated with antioxidants. With the help of antioxidants you can brighten, energize and illuminate your skin’s appearance. All you need is the right products and the right techniques to apply them to your skin. Find our antioxidant tips below.
Cleansers don’t remain on our skin for long so they don’t pack the antioxidant goodness of say a moisturizer or mask, but they are still a great place to start when it comes to incorporating antioxidants into your skin care routine. An antioxidant-formulated cleanser can clean your skin, remove excess oil and lift any dirt that your skin may have come in contact with. Garnier SkinActive’s Balancing Gel Exfoliator is formulated with antioxidant grapefruit and pomegranate extracts which cleanse and soften the skin. The refreshing gel removes oil and residue which ensures that your skin is clean. A good cleanse is a great foundation for a solid skin care routine. This cleanser has exfoliating qualities which can help improve your skin’s texture, refine the look of pores and can help your complexion look more luminous as it removes dead skin cells from skin’s surface.
2. Mask Or Serum
Every few days you should try to use a mask to supercharge your antioxidant skin care efforts. Look for a mask or serum formulated with Vitamin C, resveratrol, green tea or retinol. All of these antioxidants can brighten and refresh your skin. If you’re using a mask, apply it to moist skin after cleansing and let the mask seep in for 5-10 minutes. Rinse thoroughly then follow with an antioxidant formulated moisturizer. For the serum you can apply it to dry skin after cleansing. You also have the option of using a 2-in-1 product such as Garnier SkinActive Ultra Lift 2-in-1 Serum + Moisturizer. It’s a serum and moisturizer combined into one product and is formulated with Vitamin E, pro-retinol and rice peptides.
3. Brighten Dark Spots
Dark spots can make your complexion look tired and also age the look of your skin. Dark spots take time to address, so be patient. With the right products you can help lighten and fade the appearance of dark spots over time. Garnier SkinActive’s Clearly Brighter Dark Spot Corrector is formulated with glycolic alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) and Vitamin C and can help fade those pesky dark spots.
4. SPF Moisturizer
The sun is the chief culprit in aging our skin. Ninety percent of our skin’s aging process can be attributed to the sun, so protect your skin to keep it youthful and bright for longer. Garnier Clearly Brighter Anti-Sun Damage Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 is formulated with Vitamin C and E, and gentle exfoliating Lipo-Hydroxy Acid (LHA). It has a light non-greasy formula and protects you skin from sun damage, is infused with antioxidants and can protect skin from free radicals and can help you achieve brighter and smoother looking skin.
5. Sleeping Cream
Want to wake up with bright skin? Look no further than an overnight mask or sleeping cream. Garnier SkinActive’s Miracle Anti-Fatigue Sleeping Cream packs the nourishing qualities of a mask with the hydrating qualities of a moisturizer. Formulated with antioxidant lavender essential oil, hyaluronic and hydroxy acids, it helps you wake up with your brightest complexion yet.
