Antioxidants: essential to your Autumn skincare regime
You have spent time in the sun this summer and now your beautiful sun kissed skin is starting to get dry with the cooler weather. UV rays cause damage to your skin, and consistent exposure to the sun ages the skin faster. Signs of premature ageing include dark spots, freckles and fine lines. Autumn is all about repairing and preparing. Repairing your skin from the sun damage and helping it adapt for winter.
The main antioxidants that are present in Lucia Magnani Skincare are: Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Alpha lipoic acid, and CoQ10. These ingredients protect, repair, and help keep your skin healthy.
Vitamins are naturally found in the skin. However, sun exposure and environmental conditions, mean that these skin-food start to deplete. The natural aging of the body, also slows down in producing and delivering the nutrients to the skin in order to keep them healthy. Lucia Magnani Skincare helps achieve outer balance through topical application of important nutrients to the skin.
When Vitamin C and E are used together, they protect against sun damage and help repair the skin by reversing photo aging. These vitamins promote the production on collagen to revive the skins youth. Although these vitamins minimize sun damage of the skin, they are not sunscreens and should be used in conjunction with sunscreens.
Vitamin E is also an exceptional skin moisturizer, excellent for the autumn and winter. It prevents transepidermal water loss, so the natural moisture is retained and your skin remains hydrated and comfortable, especially in a colder temperatures and windy environments. It is important to drink adequate amounts of water to ensure that the skin hydrates, while the product helps retain the moisture. The Refreshing Energising Tonic gives a quick boost in moisture at any time of the day, and can even be applied over make up to give it a more healthy and natural finish. It helps minimize the appearance of dry and peeling skin which many of us experience as our skin adjusts to the cooler temperature in autumn.
The metabolic antioxidant: alpha lipoic acid is soluble both in water and in fat, which allows it to penetrate the skin’s surface and the skin cell membrane, working on both the inside and outside of the skin cell. Active skin cells easily get rid of toxins and make better use of nutrients. Alpha lipoic acid and CoQ10 raise the energy level of the skin cell to keep a healthy cellular metabolism in addition to protecting the skin against free radicals. It truly rejuvenates and reenergizes, by ensuring your skin is able to protect and repair itself. The Rejuvenating Serum has the highest potency of all the nutrients mentioned, it is our most iconic product that will melt into your skin to give your instant moisture and suppleness. Through consistent use of our serum and a healthy lifestyle, you will help repair and protect your skin.
