Antioxidants, we’ve all heard about them, especially when it comes to antiaging. But, that begs the question: what makes them so special and why are they so important? And, more importantly, do they actually help achieve that beautiful, youthful, healthy glow? Let’s dive right in and find out.
First thing’s first, what exactly are antioxidants? It is actually right there in the name. The “anti-” prefix denotes the protective function of these compounds and the “oxidants” are what your cells and your body, in general, are getting protected from.
To put it more directly, antioxidants are specific substances that protect cells from damage by free radicals and other unstable molecules produced as byproducts of day-to-day metabolic functions. They work mainly by targeting these molecules and neutralizing them thus rendering them harmless and ready for elimination. The effectiveness of antioxidants when it comes to ravaging these harmful toxins is what gains them the name “free radical scavengers”.
Antioxidants Inside Out
In an ideal world with a perfect diet, active lifestyle, no exposure to environmental toxins, and sheer luck, your body would be capable of handling the load of these free radicals. However, as our diet and lifestyles continue to change, our bodies are becoming more and more overladen with cellular byproducts and as a result, internal antioxidant mechanisms are just not able to handle the load.
That is where consuming antioxidants come in handy. And lucky for us, we have plenty of options including berries, kale, nuts, and even dark chocolate. But, we all know that diet alone has a way of leaving some gaps. Again, lucky for us, we have the luxury of supplementation. A few high quality, whole-food-based capsules a day offer a convenient and affordable avenue to ensure you are getting the antioxidants your body deserves day in and day out.
What most people fail to realize is that antioxidants harness just as many benefits when used outside in as they do inside out.
Antioxidants Outside In
One of the biggest concerns when it comes to intentional skincare is turning back or at the very least slowing down the hands of time. While aging is pretty much inevitable, we are not entirely helpless or cursed when it comes to aging with grace. It really boils down to a few daily habits.
But first, we must understand exactly how aging occurs. The main mechanism is oxidative stress on the cells in different skin layers. The buildup of free radicles and other similar molecules over time results in continuous deterioration in the structural and functional integrity of the cell from collagen-producing cells to actual epithelial cells.
The most notable effects are the loss of firmness which eventually results in the formation of wrinkles and the loss of that youthful glow both as a result of aging and the slowing of the glands the produce sebum.
Given what we already know about antioxidants and their very swift and effective approach towards dealing with free radicals, they clearly have a lot to offer. When used topically in particular, the effects are more direct, immediate, and focused. This comes in handy when clearing free radicals for everything from post-breakout cell activity to normal aging processes.
Choosing the Right Antioxidant Supplement for Your Skin
Antioxidants work wonderfully both inside out and outside in when it comes to achieving that outward healthy glow. However, it can be easy to get lost in the land of supplements, creams, and serums. And, before you know it, you can end up with a cabinet full of products.
The truth: you don’t need every capsule, cream, and serum to achieve your goals. As a matter of fact, there’s one that will cover all the bases when it comes to an inside-out and outside-in approach, Essentials Blend by New Earth.
Essentials Blend is a superfood blend with the most powerful combination of natural antioxidants including organic Wild Microalgae and organic wheat sprouts. But, of course, it’s much more than a simple antioxidant solution. This skin-loving blend delivers a proprietary blend of 12 different live beneficial bacteria and 15 plant-based enzymes in addition to organic Wild Microalgae and organic wheat sprouts.
Why is this important?
This single product helps balance the skin with the help of probiotics, exfoliate and eliminate with the help of enzymes, and nurture and nourish with the help of organic Wild Microalgae and organic wheat sprouts and their superior antioxidant power.
The supplement comes in the form of a powder making it easy to add to your smoothies and juices and mix up with a few ingredients for a DIY face mask, cleanser, or body scrub.
How to Use Essentials Blend for Your Skin
An inside-out outside-in approach is simple with Essentials Blend. Simply start your day with a morning elixir that nourishes your body, mind, and skin. This can be as simple as a little coconut water mixed with a serving of Essentials Blend.
As for the outside-in approach, end your day with a refreshing face and body cleanser or scrub. It only takes a few simple ingredients. To make the cleanser, just add ¼ cup of coconut oil or olive oil to 1 teaspoon of Essentials Blend, mix thoroughly and apply as you please then rinse off. For a scrub, add some pink Himalayan salt. Usually, ½ a cup should do the trick. However, you could add more or less of the salt until you get a consistency you like and suits your skin’s sensitivity and delicateness.
