I am sure you are familiar with foods that are rich in antioxidants, such as berries, beans, and leafy greens. But do you know about the importance of antioxidants in skincare? The naturally occuring free radicals in our body are unstable atoms that can damage cells. This can result in disease and premature aging. Lifestyle choices like smoking, alcohol, and eating fried foods may speed up the process. Antioxidants can help your skin fight free radical damage and recover from oxidative stress. The top antioxidants used in skincare are: vitamin c, niacinamide, and retinol. Here are some of Lumiere de Vie’s antioxidant rich products!
Ascorbic acid is one of the most abundant antioxidants found in human skin, where it plays an important role in protecting the skin from oxidative free radicals and supporting healthy skin proteins like collagen and elastin. Topical application of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; help the skin feel firmer and more supple and provide a smoother, more even and brighter-looking complexion.
Lumiere de Vie Brightening C-Serum delivers a healthy dose of Vitamin C to the skin to help brighten and give a youthful-looking complexion. This formula’s strong antioxidant properties help to fight the signs of aging and oxidative stress, while helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots. Other skin-loving ingredients help to maintain skin’s elasticity while moisturizing and smoothing skin for a soft-to-the touch feel.
Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3 that has numerous benefits for the skin. Niacinamide helps keep the skin hydrated, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, helps reduce the appearance of oily skin and blemishes, and helps the skin maintain a brighter, more even complexion.
Don’t just soothe your skin; supercharge it with Lumière de Vie® Super Soother. This little bottle packs a big punch with a super-lightweight formulation of niacinamide (vitamin B3), allantoin and aloe. These powerhouse ingredients combine to soothe and balance skin by helping control excess oil and reducing the appearance of redness and blemishes. Additionally, they help treat the signs of aging by brightening unwanted dark spots and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, all while adding vital moisture back to the skin for a complexion that feels as good as it looks.
Retinol is the primary naturally occurring form of vitamin A which is a derivative that helps the acceleration of skin’s natural cell turnover. The accelerated cell turnover process helps to liven the skin’s superficial layer and slough away dead skin cells. It is one of the best known and most effective ingredients for skin care. Retinol has been reported to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, help the skin feel firmer and more supple, and improve the skin’s overall appearance.
