Why Antioxidants?

In the world of skin care there are many things that I didn't understand before becoming an Esthetician. One example is Antioxidants, I always knew that blueberries were full of this and good to eat for your body.

But what are the benefits of antioxidants for your skin?

In our AKTIV Botanical line we have an Antioxidant Infusion Oil that I absolutely love! In this amazing oil there are only 5 ingredients, Cranberry Seed Oil, Pomegranate Seed Oil, Pumpkin Seed Oil, Vitamin E and Sunflower Seed Oil. Each of these ingredients are packed full of Antioxidants. Here are 4 reasons how Antioxidants benefit the skin.

1. Sun Damage

Sun Damage can often leave your skin with inflammation, and make it appear rough and wrinkly. Pomegranate Seed Oil that is in this product Is full of antioxidants that can heal sun damage and protect the skin from the sun. Pomegranates also have large amouts of Ellagic and Polyphenol antioxidants. These two powerful antioxidants have been found to prevent the growth of skin cancer.

2. Anti Aging

When it comes to anti aging there are tons of free radicals that can be attacking your skin daily. That's where antioxidants come in to help. With adding the number one antioxidant Vitamin E in this product you can be sure it will leave your skin looking younger. Vitamin E can help boost collagen production, reduce fine lines and brighten age spots.

3. Brightening

If you are someone that struggles with Hyperpigmentation then this is the product for you. Pumpkin Seed Oil is great for brightening dark spots and leaving your skin glowing. Pumpkin is packed full of fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Not only will it help brighten your skin but it is also great for acne, and oily skin. Who knew that oil could help oily skin.

4. Anti-Inflammatory

Last but not least antioxidants help with Inflammation. It is important with aging skin to find a product that protects your skin from free radicals and also has anti-inflammatory ingredients. Ultimately if you don't protect your skin from free radicals and inflammation it will speed up the process of aging. Sunflower Seed Oil is just one of the anti-inflammatory ingredients in this product. This oil is high in Omega-6 and Vitamin E. With help from the Omega-6 it will decrease inflammation and enhance the development on the new skin cells.
