Should I Use an Antioxidant Serum?

The body produces free radicals in response to sun exposure and other environmental factors. Antioxidants, such as those found in serums, are nature’s weapon against free radicals—and ageing.

The body produces free radicals through a chemical response to sun exposure and other environmental factors. Amongst other dastardly deeds, free radicals break down collagen and elastin, which keep your face looking plump, soft, and happy.

Antioxidant vitamins and enzymes, such as those found in serums, are nature’s weapon against free radicals—and ageing. Using an antioxidant serum is a great step towards preventing and reversing the signs of ageing.

At what age should I start using an antioxidant serum?


You can use an antioxidant serum as soon as you hit your 20s. Prevention is a key step in anti-ageing, and loading your skin up with antioxidants is one of the best ways to prevent the breakdown of collagen and elastin. After sunscreen, an antioxidant serum is the next best skincare product a young person can use.


Can antioxidant serums help mature skin?


Totally! Antioxidants not only help fight free radicals, but they also help repair existing damage. If you use your antioxidant serum consistently, you should see measurable results within 30 to 60 days.

Cell turnover slows with age, so the more advanced you are in age, the longer it takes to see results from such products. But even before they produce visible results, antioxidant serums shield you from further free radical damage, and again, prevention is the name of the game.

What serums should I try?


Luckily for you, we offer tons of antioxidant serums on our site. Let’s check out two very different products: a high-performance antioxidant concentrate and a botanically based natural serum.

SkinCeuticals Resveratrol B E Antioxidant Night Concentrate

SkinCeuticals specialises in no-muss, no-fuss, potent cosmeceutical serums. The brand's über-popular C E Ferulic is also an antioxidant serum, but we’re going to highlight a different product.

The Antioxidant Night Concentrate formula includes resveratrol, baicalin, and alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E), a fantastic little trio. This serum is great at giving hydration, nourishment, radiance, and new life to the skin.

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum

If you prefer a more natural, botanical-based product, Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum is a fantastic choice. This potent skin treatment fights free radicals with niacinamide (vitamin B3) and tocopherol to keep your complexion gorgeous. Plenty of plant extracts add radiance and moisture.

So these are two examples from both sides of the spectrum: high-tech and down-to-earth. For more choices, check out our entire antioxidant serum selection. We definitely have something for you.
