Topical Antioxidants

July 15, 2020

By Christine Cheng, R.Ph.

Q: I’m at an age where the lack of attention to my skin’s health is catching up to me! Is there anything I can use on my skin to help improve the texture and tone of my skin?

A: It’s not unusual for us to hear the advice to use sunscreen and protect our skin no matter what our age is, but to heed this advice is often left to the older and wiser! Thankfully, it is possible to slow down and maybe even reverse some of the damage that has been done. Look for topical products that contain antioxidants to help with a range of benefits such as reducing age spots and reducing the look of wrinkles. In order for antioxidants to be effective, they must be stabilized. An excellent and effective example is the Vitamin C Serum from DiMorelli. It can be used daily to help reduce hyperpigmentation as well as increase the firmness of the skin.
