The Health Benefits of Antioxidants

The Health Benefits of Antioxidants

You’ve probably seen a lot of buzz about antioxidants. There’s evidence that these nutrients are super beneficial for the body, but what about on your skin? With nourishing and restorative properties, these molecular powerhouses take center stage in the skincare world. Here’s your guide to antioxidants and skin health.

Vitamin A: Retinoids

Retinoids trigger the production of collagen which is a key protein in skin and connective tissues. Collagen production slows down as we age, but retinoids can help enhance your  skin’s ability to replenish collagen, to fight fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration. Check out Body Merry’s Retinol Surge Moisturizer and Pro-A Serum, which provide gentle, effective sources of retinoids for your skin.

Vitamin C: A Free Radical Fighter

Vitamin C helps boost the body’s immunity, but it also packs a potent skincare punch. Free radicals from cigarette smoke, pollution and UV rays steal electrons from atoms in the skin. The result: wrinkles, sagging skin and discoloration. Vitamin C naturally brightens skin and fights off those free radicals. Body Merry has a handful of products packed with Vitamin C: Vitamin C Exfoliating Cleanser, Super C-22 Toner, Super C-22 Moisturizer, Super 6 Serum, Hyaluronic Dew Serum, Day-to-Night Eye Gel, Age Defense Neck Cream.  

Vitamin E: Skin Healing Solutions

Vitamin E is best known for its healing properties. Easily absorbed by the skin, it is central in assisting the cellular restoration process. It’s commonly found in products targeting scarred or damaged skin, such as Body Merry’s Stretch Marks & Scars Defense Cream and Vanilla Orange Stretch Marks & Scars Defense Cream.

Vitamin B3: A Hydrating Superhero

Vitamin B3 is an anti-inflammatory agent and skin barrier booster commonly used in acne and rosacea treatments, but it also helps skin retain moisture and boost other antioxidants’ performance. Vitamin B3 is often referred to as Niacinamide and can be found in Body Merry’s Breakthrough Night Cream, Super C-22 Moisturizer and Super 6 Serum.

Wherever possible, Body Merry sources antioxidants from natural sources. Green tea, for example, contains several powerful antioxidant properties, which is why it’s present in many newer skincare products. It’s long been a staple of Body Merry formulations, and is among the many other natural ingredients we use in our skincare solutions. For happier skin, check out Body Merry’s product bundles today.
