Anti-Pollution Antioxidants


The benefits from antioxidants in skincare products seem nearly endless! Paula’s Choice Skincare has long known that antioxidants are one of the major ways to fight the appearance of wrinkles, smooth skin’s surface, and overall encourage skin to look healthier. Antioxidants also ease the look of redness because of their strong calming properties.

As it turns out, antioxidants can do even more than that already-impressive list: They also defend skin against the effects of pollution.

Skincare for Pollution Defense? Absolutely!

Antioxidants are one of the most powerful types of anti-pollution ingredients you can apply to your skin. That’s because they interrupt the action of pollution and environmental attack on your skin and thus slow the visible effects on skin.

Given the increasing awareness of pollution’s destructive effect on skin’s complexion, many have wondered if there are specific antioxidants you need to do the most good. Although research on the topic is limited, what we do know is that there are dozens of stable potent antioxidants that can have a big impact when it comes to defending your skin. Just like it takes a range of beneficial foods to keep your body balanced and nourished, the same is true for your skin.

It’s important to note that pollution is not just a daytime issue. Pollution knows no boundaries or time zones, or whether it’s night or day, so incorporating antioxidant-rich products into both your daytime and nighttime routines can make an impressive difference in your skin’s appearance!

For that very reason, Paula’s Choice Skincare is proud to say that our moisturizers, boosters, sunscreens, and serums are filled to the brim with antioxidants. In addition to antioxidants, our products have a host of other great ingredients, such as our RESIST Omega+ Complex Serum, which has the benefits of omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 fatty acids to make skin appear more vibrant and radiant.

No matter which product or antioxidant you select, the take-home message is that in the fight against pollution’s effects on skin, antioxidants have earned a bona fide badge of honor!
