Opt for antioxidants
Antioxidants are molecules that neutralise free radicals that destroy skin’s collagen and elastin support. Without collagen and elastin support, the skin loses its firmness and tone. To neutralise free-radical damage, opt for moisturisers and creams containing vitamins A, C and E, which are powerful antioxidants. These vitamins are listed in skincare formulations as retinyl palminate, ascorbyl palminate, vitamin C ester, tocopherol or tocopherol palminate etc. These vitamins are also found in natural skincare ingredients such as green tea extract, pomegranate, grapefruit and sunflower seed oil.
