Antioxidants for skin & its benefits

“I need a list of antioxidants that are good for my skin!”

“How do antioxidants benefit our skin?”

“What are antioxidants and why are they an important element in our skin care?”

“I feel so lost reading blogs and articles on antioxidants. Do I really need to know all this?”

After reviewing these kind of queries sent to us, we ourselves felt lost thinking where to start!?

So we thought of creating a love story, where our “skin” falls in love with “antioxidants” because of the way it protects her.♥ Awww! Are we still hungover from Valentines’ day! ?

Let’s say that “antioxidants” is the hero of your skin care movie. These heroes terminate the chain reactions that damage the cells (aka the beautiful diva of your movie).

Wow! We’re kinda proud of our creativity levels.

Guess we should also think about a venture in online skin care awareness sessions.

Well, in a way we’re already doing that on Instagram. If you’re already not our follower yet; please click HERE

Alright, going back to our love story where the villain is the “chain reactions”.

Basically, these chain reactions cause you wrinkles, age spots, pigmentation, freckles….rather all of them.

And antioxidants boost your skin’s collagen production that is a vital key for healthy skin.
