Antioxidant Skin Care Products

Some SkinTour visitors have commented, very understandably, that the anti-aging products I recommend are expensive. But antioxidant and anti-aging products (like cell growth factors) are one area where I do think you need to pay more to get an effective product. The drugstore versions of these just don’t have enough of the critical ingredients.

I have used and recommended SkinCeuticals antioxidants products for many years. For many years the SkinCeuticals company has been on the cutting edge of these products and the research behind them. They were one of the first companies to combine 3 different antioxidants in the same product to get a synergistic, beneficial effect.

The downside of these antioxidants has been the glass bottles with the dropper tops (why can’t they do better packaging????) and the sometimes unpleasant smell. And, of course, the price.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
