This type of serum can address some top skin concerns, like skin aging and sun damage. If you’re ready to up the ante in your skin care regimen with antioxidants, we can help. Read on for a lesson on antioxidant serums, along with the scoop on our very best antioxidant serum (it’s formulated with vitamin C) to add to your skin care #shelfie stat.

WHAT IS AN ANTIOXIDANT SERUM?

Before we explore the benefits of an antioxidant serum, it’s important to know what exactly it entails. As the name suggests, it’s a topical serum that contains an antioxidant. This type of face serum is a smart way to reap the skin care benefits that come with incorporating antioxidants into your routine without the need for a dietary supplement. Speaking of…

WHY YOU SHOULD USE AN ANTIOXIDANT SERUM

As we mentioned, there are various benefits of adding an antioxidant serum to your regimen. According to the Mayo Clinic, popular antioxidants such as vitamin C, tea extracts, grapeseed extract, and niacinamide can help protect your skin from the sun and photoaging, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and improve skin’s elasticity. In fact, according to the American Academy of Dermatology, it’s recommended that women in their 30s use a light antioxidant serum to improve signs of early skin aging.

OUR BEST ANTIOXIDANT SERUM

Now that you’re familiar with antioxidant serums, we’re sure you’re itching to add one to your vanity. Without further ado, allow us to introduce you to our best antioxidant serum, the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 10% Pure Vitamin C Serum. Vitamin C is a vital antioxidant naturally found in skin, proven to boost radiance and neutralize free radicals that lead to skin aging. This powerful but highly unstable molecule degrades when exposed to air, light, or water. To maximize potency and stability, this vitamin C serum is specially formulated without water, packaged in an air-tight metal tube sealed until ready to use, and produced in controlled conditions to minimize oxygen exposure.

The highly potent antioxidant serum is formulated with 10% pure vitamin C concentrate, and over time, it helps restore skin’s radiance and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. This serum is derm-validated, fragrance- and paraben-free, as well as suitable for sensitive skin.

HOW TO USE AN ANTIOXIDANT SERUM IN YOUR ROUTINE

Now that you have a better understanding of antioxidant serums, it’s time to put your knowledge to use. Follow our step-by-step routine below to get started.

STEP #1: CLEANSE YOUR SKIN

As with any skin care routine, you’ll want to begin with removing any buildup of impurities, dirt, and excess oils with a facial cleanser. Look for a cleanser formulated with an antioxidant, like the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refine Cleanser. This product contains red algae, a popular antioxidant, as well as three pure clays. It's used to cleanse, exfoliate, unclog, and minimize the appearance of pores. Squeeze the cleanser into your hands and add water to transform it from clay to mousse. Gently massage onto your face using circular motions, avoiding the eye area. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry.

STEP #2: SMOOTH ON YOUR SERUM

It’s time to add the best antioxidant face serum into the mix. Squeeze a dime-sized amount onto your fingertips and apply to your face and neck, gently smoothing onto your skin. Avoid the eye area.

STEP #3: MOISTURIZE

As the last step in your routine, smooth on a moisturizer formulated with an antioxidant like the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power Anti-Aging Moisturizer. This moisturizer is formulated with vitamin C, Pro-Retinol, and hyaluronic acid to reduce wrinkles and firm and brighten skin. Smooth onto your face and neck every morning and evening.

You can also up the ante and opt for a moisturizer that combines the power of an antioxidant and SPF into one, like the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power Day Lotion SPF 30. This offering also goes the extra mile to reduce wrinkles and works to brighten and firm your skin in just one week. Apply it onto your entire face every morning to protect your skin from the sun.
