5 Powerful Antioxidants Your Skin Needs - Our Guide

Antioxidants are the antidote to stress & sand sanitizer ready for you!

Skin is the largest organ of your body and will show the state of your wellbeing more quickly than any other part of you. Sun kissed shoulders in the summer, rosy cheeks in the fall and a dewy morning glow in springtime all signal health. But we also know the look of tired, dry, saggy and sullen skin, which most of the time is a sign that you are under stress.

As you know from reading our blogs, antioxidants are the key to fighting stress. In this article, we have rounded up everything you need to know about antioxidants, and which ones are best for your skincare.

How do Antioxidants Help?

Free radicals reduce the collagen and elastin production in your face and compromise your skin cell’s DNA.

Fortunately, antioxidants, which are found in vitamins, minerals, and methylene blue protect your skin against damage from free radicals. These little warriors combat the elements that cause visible signs of aging and revitalize dull-looking skin.

Here are the top five antioxidants that are best for your skin:

1. Methylene Blue

Methylene Blue is the newest kid on the block in skincare. This patented compound was discovered in 2017 by Dr. Cao as a super antioxidant. Her research shows that Methylene Blue, which was created over 140 years ago to fight malaria, has incredible effectiveness in rejuvenating skin and repairing its DNA (read more about the science here).

2. CoenzymeQ10

CoenzymeQ10 plays a major role in producing cellular energy and protecting your heart from damage. This antioxidant is easily absorbed, helps to keep your skin healthy, stimulates collagen production, and fights against oxidative stress that can cause DNA damage.

3. Superoxide  Dismutase

Superoxide dismutase (SOD) is known for neutralizing the superoxide free radical, which is the most harmful type of free radical in the body. It also boosts the power of sunscreen. This antioxidant is usually found in anti-aging products, but is also beneficial for all ages.

4. Vitamins A, C, and E

Vitamins keep your body healthy, and when applied topically, they can work wonders for your skin. Vitamin A (aka Retinol) smooths fine lines and wrinkles and accelerates cell repair and renewal, Vitamin C brightens skin tone and fades dark spots, and Vitamin E moisturizes and speeds up the skin’s healing process.

5. Flavonoids

Flavonoids are derived from plants and they have high concentrations of antioxidants. When they are used on the skin, they help to fight against free radicals, Grape Seed and Green Tea extracts are two of the 4,000 flavonoids most commonly found in skin care.


Caring for your skin requires consistency and powerful antioxidants that protect your skin from stress damage and delay skin aging.
