How Antioxidants Can Help Your Skin Feel Amazing
Posted by Samantha Lawson
Antioxidants can be a really important part of your skincare routine and do a TON of things to help make your skin feel AMAZING.
But what exactly are they, and how can you get an antioxidant BOOST for your skincare routine? Well, we’ve come up with a simple guide that tells you which antioxidants can help your skin to feel GOOD and how you can use NEOM’s products to get your daily fix!
A Quick Science Lesson...
When you’re working in a city or are out and about, your skin can go through A LOT.
Pollution, sun damage, and all sorts of other things can make life pretty tough for your skin. And this is where the HERO of our story comes in… antioxidants can help give you an extra layer of protection by boosting your skin's natural defence mechanisms.
Vitamin E = Skin Superhero!
Vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps to reinforce your skin’s natural barrier. It’s especially important to make sure that you’re getting enough of this stuff in the summer months, as vitamin E can give your skin greater protection against UV light and the sun’s rays.
NEOM’s Great Day Wonder Balm contains an antioxidant-packed blend of naturally-good oils. It’s got nourishing almond oil, olive oil, vitamin-rich shea butter and sunflower oil that contains (you guessed it!) vitamin E! Just pop a little bit of this stuff on your finger and apply it wherever you need for a quick bit of skin TLC.
Revitalise With Vitamin C
We all know how important it is to get more vitamin C in our diets, but did you know that it’s just as important for our skin as well? This antioxidant can help to protect skin against long-term sun damage, can help with skin brightening and can even reduce redness and skin inflammation. Is there ANYTHING it can’t do?
To add a little vitamin C into your morning skincare routine, use some Energy Burst Body Oil. This bottle of goodness is supercharged with vitamin C and baobab oil, which helps to provide your skin with nourishment and hydration throughout the day.
It’s also infused with 17 invigorating essential oils, including grapefruit, rosemary and lemon, which can give you a great boost of energy whenever you need it.
Vitamin A. A Pretty Awesome Vitamin
Vitamin A is a super helpful antioxidant that prevents pores from clogging, exfoliates the skin and promotes cell renewal. Using more of this fantastic vitamin means that your skin will look and feel good 24/7.
Give your skin a lovely boost of vitamin A first thing in the morning by using NEOM’s Great Day Natural Soap. This soap blend is made using rapeseed oil, which contains LOADS of vitamin A goodness!
Better still, this bar contains 8 of the PUREST essential oils, including wild mint and mandarin, which are purposefully chosen to LIFT your mood!
