The Role of Antioxidants in Skincare: How to Incorporate Them Naturally and Effectively

Antioxidants, we’ve all heard about them…
A new buzzword that seems to follow us everywhere! Today, we're diving into the magical realm of antioxidants, those miracle workers that keep our skin looking youthful and lively. 

Why We’re Buzzing About Antioxidants

If you’re looking to avoid premature aging, dull skin, and prevent sun damage, you’ll want to understand the obsession around antioxidants! Think of them as your skin's bodyguards. The thing standing between your skin and free radicals – the culprits behind everything we’d rather avoid like premature skin aging. 
Free radicals can damage your skin cells, and even hinder your skin from self-healing. Free radicals come from pollution, UV rays, stress, and even some of the foods we eat. 
We need something to protect our skin from all of this, so we welcome the need to introduce antioxidants into your skincare routine. 

Where To Find Antioxidants in Skincare? 

Here at HGO, we look to nature for our answers, and this question is no different. When we look at some of the most healing ingredients this planet has to offer, we run into a wealth of antioxidants to offer our skin. 
Vitamin C: One of the most beloved antioxidants, this ingredient not only brightens our skin, and is important for collagen synthesis but it also prevents oxidative stress which is going to aid in contributing to more youthful skin! 
Vitamin E: Ah, the great healer of antioxidants. This ingredient helps to repair skin from sun damage and protect skin from further damage over time. It is deeply moisturizing and has anti-inflammatory properties that help maintain a youthful complexion. 
Honey: We can’t name our skincare brand Honey Girl Organics, and not talk about nature’s sweet nectar! Honey is rich in antioxidants such as flavonoids and phenolic acids, which protect the skin. It is perfect for moisturizing and healing the skin with continued use. 
Aloe Vera: We love aloe vera for its ability to calm and soothe irritated skin. Loaded with antioxidants like vitamins C, E, and A, it works to accelerate the healing process of skin on a deep level. 
Olive Oil: If you’re looking for antioxidants, look no further than olive oil. Rich in antioxidants, from vitamin E and polyphenols, this ingredient is known to help heal and regenerate the skin at the cellar level.
