Rancho Cordova, CA (PRWEB) November 22, 2010
Free radicals from UV rays, pollution and other environmental enemies can really harm skin. They create many skincare concerns, ranging from lines, wrinkles and sun spots to serious skin damage like skin cancer. Thankfully, the antioxidants idebenone, vitamin C and vitamin E may protect skin or even reduce existing skin damage in some cases.
According to numerous studies, idebenone is more effective than kinetin, vitamin C, alpha lipoic acid and Coenzyme Q10. Idebenone’s skin protective properties last longer and defend against more types of free radicals than other antioxidants.
How it may help skin:
- Minimize dryness.
- Decrease the look of fine wrinkles and lines.
- Prevent UV damage.
Much research has already examined vitamin C, and it appears to be one of the most effective anti-aging treatments. It also offers up many other protective and reparative skin benefits.
However, vitamin C can also cause irritation and inflammation, particularly in high concentrations. Ideal vitamin C concentrations range from 10 to 20 percent; lower amounts may not be effective.
How it may help skin:
- Regulate skin’s barrier to minimize moisture loss.
- Protect skin from sunburn.
- Prevent wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.
- Build up collagen and elastin.
- Promote healing of scrapes, bruises and cuts.
- Reduce existing skin damage and aging.
- Protect against skin cancer.
- Promote new cell growth.
Vitamin E is a stable antioxidant, commonly added to skincare products to prevent other antioxidants from spoiling. It works to prevent and reduce free radical damage from UV rays and smoke (vitamin E levels in skin are greatly reduced following exposure to these aggressors).
Be aware, however, that vitamin E can trigger allergic reactions.
How it may help skin:
- Protect against sun damage and sunburn.
- Soothe and calm skin.
- Minimize moisture loss.
- Improve skin tone.
- Promote healing of burns, cuts and scrapes.
- Boost the benefits of other antioxidants.
- Reduce skin cancer risk.
- Prevent scars.
