Much like the rest of your body, skin benefits a ton from the power of antioxidants. Aside from fighting dull skin, antioxidants provide protection against skin cancer and even fight free radicals, unstable compounds that cause wrinkles. While the perks of antioxidant-rich foods are well-known, how’s agal to decide how to best arm herself with these little miracle workers? Stock up on these antioxidant-rich products to bump up your health regimen in a flash.

Green Tea

The extracts of green tea are derived from the Camelliasinensis plant. These contain a number of powerful polyphenols. Research has shown that when EGCG, one particular polyphenol, is applied just before or immediately following UV exposure, it helps correct the cellular changes caused by UV rays. Additionally, it may also quench hydrogen peroxide radicals and degrade carcinogenic skin cells. Just be sure to choose products that contain adequate amounts of extract. Too little of the stuff may prove ineffective. One Miami dermatologist, Leslie Baumann, says creams containing enough green tea will look brown.

Idebenone

Idebenone, which is pronounced “E-d-buh-known” is a more stable relative of Q10, an antioxidant coenzyme. Idebenone penetrates better than Q10 and offers heightened protection against the oxidation caused by free radicals. Similar to green tea extract, Idebenone also protects skin cells from UVB rays’sharmful effects. While it stands among the best antioxidants available, exercise caution. About 1 in 10 people are allergic to it, so be sure to test only a small patch of skin before regularly using.

Vitamin C

This well-known vitamin is essential for the skin. It holds a variety of benefits, including anti-inflammatory properties, sun-protection capabilities and collage-building. While there are a number of ways to get your daily dose of Vitamin C, doctors recommend opting for ascorbic acid. This acid is sensitive to light and air, so look for dark, small-mouthed bottles. Inject a bit of these healthy antioxidants into your diet routine and sit back while the results take their place.
