Antioxidant Toning Spray- 100mls
What are antioxidants and why are they so important for healthy skin? Antioxidants are beneficial properties contained within certain ingredients that are used to formulate care cosmetics. So while you can’t ‘add’ an antioxidant to a product you can add, say for example, green tea extract which is packed full of helpful antioxidants. Their main function is to prevent and fight free radical damage.
The chemistry and action of the human body is incredibly complex but in basic terms a healthy skin cell is one that contains protons, neutrons and electrons. Free radical damage is the damage caused to our skin by environmental factors (such as sun exposure, pollution and poor nutrition) that causes a healthy cell to lose an electron. When this happens the damaged cell will attempt to steal an electron from a healthy, neighbouring cell to repair itself. As you can imagine without intervention the action of free radicals would produce cascading cell damage.
This is where antioxidants come in. Their job is to stabilize the damaged cell so that it will not harm any more healthy cells. If we didn’t have antioxidants, free radical damage would take over the body meaning cells would break down and not be able to function normally. You may already be familiar with this damage as it can be seen in the form of wrinkles and liver spots.
Antioxidant Toning Spray is bursting with quality ingredients that are known for their antioxidant properties. To combat damage caused by free radical action spritz Antioxidant Toning Spray over your face daily before your moisturiser and/ or serum. It’s also great if you just want a pick-me-up throughout the day and can even be sprayed over makeup or use as a fixing spray for contouring your makeup with your beauty blender.
The beneficial ingredients used to formulate this product include:
Marine Collagen- Marine Collagen combats the effect of free radical damage by addressing the three principal components necessary for effective skin care: stimulating collagen production, improving elasticity and retaining moisture. It’s great for replenishing vital nutrients and providing essential hydration to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and to protect skin from UV damage. This leaves skin feeling velvety smooth, soft and supple.
Green Tea Extract- containing polyphenolic compounds also known as epicatechins (that are antioxidant in nature) green tea repairs sun damage by quenching free radicals and reducing inflammation. Green tea is a well-documented antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent and there is preliminary evidence that it may inhibit the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) enzyme that contributes to age-related degradation of the skin.
Kakadu Plum Extract- found only in the Northern Territory of Australia this fruit has the highest concentration of natural Vitamin C of any known plant. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that ‘mops-up’ free radicals helping to prevent damage to the skin’s cellular structure. This extract is deeply hydrating and refreshing and stimulates the production of elastin and collagen to help maintain supple skin.
Portulaca- deeply soothing and a powerful anti-inflammatory agent, portulaca is a natural source of vitamins A, C and E and the co-enzyme Q10. This makes it an excellent source of antioxidants helping to fight premature aging and protect the skin from environmental damage.
Also containing quality ingredients such as Certified Organic Juniper Berry Oil, Vitamin E, Aloe Vera Juice and Ylang-Ylang. Antioxidant Toning Spray is valuable for treating acne due to its antibacterial properties which clear congested skin and reduce inflammation. It also assists in controlling oil production, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and repairing rough, dry or sun damaged skin.
