Seems like hardly a day goes by when we don't hear about the virtues of antioxidants for the health and beauty of our skin. Magazine articles touting the visible (and invisible) benefits of antioxidants like vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin B3, Ferulic Acid and many more.
Apparently, antioxidants are a kind of superhero for our complexions. They fight free radicals and improve the dark spots, wrinkles and loss of firmness they leave behind.
The current winner of the antioxidant popularity contest is (drum roll) antioxidant serums. Why? Because serums have one purpose. To deliver concentrated amounts of active ingredients (in this case - antioxidants) to the surface of your skin.
Sure some serums include things like hyaluronic acid which is a world-class skin plumper or glycerine - which happens to be an awesome moisturizer. But if you want nothing between your skin and a healthy dose of antioxidants -- serums are the way to go.
