ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS:
Just how important is it to use antioxidants daily?

The truth about antioxidants and their importance in your daily routine.

Antioxidants act as anti-agers.

The most important function antioxidants play is to protect the skin against free radical damage we are subjected to daily. By doing so, they prevent skin damage and help keep skin looking younger longer. Antioxidants also reverse existing sun damage and improve the condition of already damaged skin. And they are an absolute must if you smoke or neglect to wear sunscreen.

Antioxidants in food or as a supplement.

Although it's important to consume foods rich in antioxidants or to take daily antioxidant supplements, these alone will not protect your skin from free radical damage. Nor will they reverse existing damage. So without question, topical antioxidants are your best weapon against UV damage.

Not all antioxidants are the same.

Beware of products with antioxidants as not all antioxidants are equally potent and effective. CoffeeBerry found in Revaleskin products and the L-ascorbic acid found in iS Clinical Advance+ formulas are among the most potent antioxidants and the most effective at repairing existing skin damage and protecting against future damage.

Antioxidant product application.

To assure the best penetration, antioxidants should be applied to clean, dry skin prior to the application of any other product. You can follow with a moisturizer and/or sunscreen. Paying attention to the order in which products are applied truly does matter. Otherwise, the antioxidants will not penetrate as well and won't be as effective.
