Finding The Right SkinCeuticals Antioxidant Serum For My Skin

Read our ultimate guide to finding the right SkinCeuticals antioxidant serum for your skin!

Why do I need an antioxidant serum?

When it comes to antioxidants, it’s not just about the food you eat or the supplements you take, it’s also about the products you’re applying to your skin. Antioxidants provide our first line of defence against the free radicals responsible for breaking down skin's elastin fibres, damaging collagen and causing changes in skin tone, resulting in discolouration and pigmentation. The best way to stop free radicals is by using topical antioxidants that provide the unstable free radical atoms with a stabilising electron, therefore leaving your skin's own electrons well alone!
