Why Antioxidants Are Needed In Skincare…

We know Antioxidants play a vital role in our overall health but with anti-inflammatory, skin firming and the reduction of wrinkles, scars and sun damage as the benefits it comes as no surprise that many beauty products contain them.

Particularly anti-ageing products such as ours.

But there is a bit more we could all know about them.

Antioxidants are also nutrients, vitamins and minerals as well as enzymes and protein, which means they can help prevent and repair damage to the body’s tissue.

When it comes to caring for the skin, antioxidants help to protect the skin from damaging effects of the sun and unlike sunscreens and moisturizers, antioxidants can protect your skin from the inside out by guarding your cells from damage.

Vitamins A, C and E are thought to be particularly helpful in skincare and in addition A and C encourages cell and tissue growth by helping the body repair itself.

And similar to tinted moisturisers and BB creams which are designed to go one step further with hyaluronic acid and antioxidants regenerating the skin our Endless Youth Midnight Magic Cell Serum is one of our best concentrated serums with 16 powerful potent anti-gravity age fighters.


Containing sesame molecules and botanical extracts which rapidly help skin recover its youth, the product combines the use of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent carnosine and epidermal growth factors as well as sodium hyaluronate, red wine extracts, oat protein and niacinamide which were identified in our top 10 ingredients post.

Alongside the above antioxidant ingredients this miracle wonder contains adenosine triphosphate, which serves as the major energy source within a cell as well as wild yam, which proved its worth of restoring keratinocyte proliferation in aged skin and sunspots in a 2007 study.

Alpha lipoid acid which inhibits cross-linking, carnitine, ferulic acid, caffeine, green tea, copper peptides which have been used to treat everything from wrinkles to scarring as well as resveratrol, the anti-ageing revolution set to increase cellular longevity, skin thickness and collagen production which as we can see in the below graphic disappears quite quickly as we age, can also be found in the midnight magic formula.


So as it is ideal for keeping the skin younger, brighter, and tighter it’s no wonder that our Mirenesse testimonials have shared the instant results of smoother and more hydrated skin.

And although there is no recommended daily allowance for antioxidants if half your plate is filled with fruits and vegetables then you can rest assure you will get the antioxidants you need.
