3 Powerful Antioxidants For Healthy Skin


When it
comes to fighting premature aging and keeping wrinkles and hyperpigmentation at
bay – antioxidants rule! Not only they enhance mineral makeup’s sun protective
properties (we love mineral makeup!) but they are also great for rejuvenating your skin and getting that oh-so-desired
glow! Today, we’ll introduce you to the 3 most potent antioxidants that deserve
their special place in your skin care routine (and in your diet). Let’s make
that skin radiant and healthy!

Vitamin C

Vitamin C
is, has always been and will be on top of my list. I love the effect it has on
my skin and I am super happy with the results I got from using vitamin C
enriched skin care products. Basically, vitamin C is my skin care hero! Now let
me tell you why..

The reason
why free radicals are so bad for your skin is that they break down collagen,
which results in loss of elasticity and formation of fine lines and wrinkles.
Here is where vitamin C steps in – on the one hand it counteracts oxidative
stress and on the other – it boosts the collagen synthesis itself. Pretty
impressive, I’d say.

Another
wonderful property
vitamin C possesses is its ability to lighten the skin,
reduce already existing dark spots and prevent the appearance of new ones. Regardless
of the cause (whether hyperpigmented areas are marks from already healed
blemishes or result of staying too much in the sun/your age) vitamin C is sure
to help, by enhancing the natural self-healing ability of your cells.

The La Mav Skin-Brightening range includes powerful bio-actives targeted specifically to even skin tone, texture and promote radiance while reducing the appearance of spots, sun damage, and wrinkles. Rumexoccidentalis extract, Vitamin C, Bearberry extract, Glabradin (from Licorice Root extract), and Cassia alata leaf extract are key ingredients in the range that have scientifically proven effects on skin clarity and texture. 

Discover The Range


 

Green Tea

Green tea,
just like vitamin C has been proven to effectively battle aging/hyperpigmentation and along with this – protect healthy collagen from breaking
down. Since the amount of collagen in our bodies tends to decline with age,
it’s essential to preserve the existing one as long as possible, in order to
postpone the appearance of the early “symptoms” of aging – loss of elasticity, wrinkle formation, hyperpigmentation, dull looking skin, etc..

Another
great thing about green tea is that it has strong anti-inflammatory properties,
which makes it ideal for people struggling with
acne, eczema, dermatitis and
other skin conditions, associated with frequent inflammations.


Vitamin E

Vitamin E
(also known as Tocopherol) is a fat soluble vitamin that comes in two forms –
natural and synthetic. Since we don’t really like anything that has “synthetic”
in its name, we prefer to stick to the good-old-plant-derived vitamin E – it’s
more potent and is absorbed by the skin rapidly, without leaving greasy
residues.

Why we love
it some much (and why you need it in your beauty routine)? First, like any
other potent antioxidant it protects the living cells from oxidative stress i.e
reduces damage induced by free radicals. Second it increases the effectiveness
of sunscreen, hence protects your skin from UV rays (and UV rays, as we all know are the main culprit
for
premature aging). Third it maintains the integrity of its lipid barrier and
reduces water loss, keeping your face fresh and plump. Last but not least,
since vitamin E is a natural preservative, it extends the shelf life of the
products you are using (definitely better choice compared to the nasty parabens – ugh!)
