Why Use Antioxidants and Sunscreen Together?

Antioxidants have become a popular marketing staple in the beauty and fitness industry, even if you eat all the right foods and take your vitamins it’s just as important to apply an active topical antioxidant daily under your sunscreen to prevent external oxidative stress on your skin.

Antioxidants have become a popular marketing staple in the beauty and fitness industry.  Antioxidants are very important systemically to relieve the internal body of oxidative aging stress and just as important topically on the skin to prevent external oxidative aging stress on the skin.  So yes, even if you eat all the right foods and take your vitamins it’s just as important to apply an active topical antioxidant daily under your sunscreen.

Topical Antioxidants create a second barrier protection from UVA and UVB free radical assault when worn underneath sunscreen.  Free radicals can be damaging to the skin and have been shown to cause premature aging and skin cancer.  Antioxidants neutralize free radicals helping to prevent destruction of healthy cells in the skin.

The most common and highly effective antioxidants used in skincare products are Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Green Tea.  This isn’t to say these are the only antioxidants that provide protection against free radical damage, these are just a few of many.
