Skin Actives Facial Antioxidant Serum Review – Beautiful With Brains

The problem with antioxidant serums? They barely contain any antioxidants. Seriously, most brands pick one random antioxidant, add a couple of drops to the formula and tell you it’s better than Botox. As if… Skin Actives Antioxidant Facial Serum is one of the few exceptions to the rule. This baby is packed to the brim with all kinds of antioxidants you can think of – and it’s super affordable too! I know, I know, it’s not as popular as Skinceuticals or The Ordinary, but this underrated brand will make you fall in love at the first drop. Here’s why you should consider adding this serum to your skincare routine, pronto:

Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Epigallocatechin Gallate: The most powerful antioxidant in green tea, it fights free radicals and reduces inflammation – two of the main causes of aging.

Ferulic Acid: This antioxidant fights THREE types of free radicals: superoxide, hydroxyl radical, and nitric oxide and boosts the effectiveness of other antioxidants.

Glutathione: A tripeptide comprised of three amino acids (cysteine, glutamic acid, and glycine), it helps defend skin against environmental damage and the premature aging it causes. It also helps brighten skin.

Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate: A stable form of Vitamin C, it helps fight free radicals, boosts collagen production, brighten skin, and even hydrate it.

Superoxide Dismutase: An enzyme naturally produced by the body to reduce the harmful effects of DNA damage (including wrinkles). A 2001 study has also found that it can help heal wounds caused from burns in rats.
