Five Super Anti-Aging Antioxidants Your Skin Needs Now
When it comes to anti-aging ingredients, the research is clear: Antioxidants reign supreme. Their benefits are numerous and clinical research has demonstrated that they combat free radical scavengers that are responsible for premature aging and they also enhance the effectiveness of sunscreens to prevent sun damage. Daily application of topical antioxidants in the morning used in conjunction with a broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher will provide optimal protection against UV rays. Applying a variety of antioxidants topically in the evening will promote cellular repair and healing.
The challenge is finding the right blend of antioxidants that provide results. There are hundreds of trendy antioxidants claiming that they are the next best anti-aging solution. So, what really matters most and how do find the right ones? One of the most important things to remember is that your skin gets the most benefit when several antioxidants are applied together. Remember the food pyramid growing up? We learned at a very young age that we need to eat a variety of fruits and vegetables instead of just one to provide our body with the nutrients it needs to be healthy. In other words, take a cocktail approach, and give skin its very own happy hour with an array of potent, stable, and well-researched antioxidants!
It is also very important to select a blend of antioxidants that are going to be effective. In order to get the most benefit from the antioxidants you apply on your skin, opt for medical grade products that have been clinically tested and proven to be effective. Medical grade products contain higher potencies of the active antioxidants and contain delivery systems in them to ensure that those higher potencies get delivered below the surface of the skin which is where they need to go in order to produce any type of anti-aging result.
All of our H&H Science skin care products are medical grade and contain superior delivery systems to ensure that those higher potencies of active ingredients are delivered below the surface of the skin. They are manufactured in the USA in an FDA approved facility and all of the products are clinically researched and proven to deliver results. They also all contain a blend of antioxidants and almost every product contains a liposomal blend of Vitamin A, C, E and Green Tea and Co-Enzyme Q-10.
Clinical research makes it clear that there are dozens of effective antioxidants, but it also reveals a short list of medical grade antioxidants that are proven superior in addressing anti-aging concerns. These are the ones that make the list:
Vitamin A (Retinol)
If there’s one essential product that most skin care professionals seem to recommend, it’s the highly effective retinoid compound, Retinol (Vitamin A). As the only product approved by the FDA to treat photo-aged skin, retinol can provide incredible anti-aging benefits like tightened pores and smoother, more radiant skin. Retinol, otherwise known as Vitamin A, has remained the gold standard in anti-aging.
Retinol is a multi-tasking ingredient, powerful for skin healing and improvement. It can revitalize skin beautifully while healing it.
Key Benefits of Using Retinol:
- Reduces Wrinkles
- Improves Skin Tone and Quality
- Minimizes Pore size
- Lightens Age Spots
- Heals Hyperpigmentation
- Combats Adult Acne
- Lightly Exfoliates

When incorporated into your daily skincare lineup, medical grade skin care products containing stable vitamin C can provide a range of benefits that keep your skin younger-looking, longer!
Key Benefits of Vitamin C:

Everyone is familiar with the benefits of drinking green tea. However, few are familiar with the benefits of applying green tea topically in the form of a cream or serum. Recent research has demonstrated the skin care benefits of green tea when applied directly onto the skin.
Green tea contains molecules known as green tea polyphenols which have been proven to reduce inflammation, promote healing, and fight certain types of bacteria. This makes green tea cream products effective for acne prone skin, because soothing inflammation is one of the important treatment goals for most acne sufferers. Green tea catechins are anti-bacterial and can decrease hormone activity. This means green tea is an effective way to control and soothe acne. Because the main benefit of green tea for skin problems is its antioxidant properties, you will most likely benefit from it if you suffer from acne, rosacea, psoriasis, or other inflammatory skin issues
Green tea also contains caffeine in concentrations up to four percent, which makes it a helpful ingredient in under eye creams, especially in those that treat puffiness and dark circles. Not only does caffeine calm inflamed blood vessels that create dark circles, it also soothes puffiness and tightens the skin, making it appear younger. Using green tea for skin under the eyes treats both of these problems at the same time. Our H&H Science Total Eye Repair Cream contains green tea and Vitamin A in addition to several other humectants and antioxidants.
Key Benefits of Green Tea:
- Fight Free Radicals
- Neutralize UV Light
- Reduces oil
- Tightens and Tones the Skin
- Fights Inflammation and is a great anti-inflammatory treatment for rosacea, acne, and psoriasis
- Tightens and Tones the Skin

Young skin has ample amounts of CoQ10 (skin care energy). This provides the skin with the energy it needs to repair damage and make sure that the skin cells are healthy. Active skin cells get rid of toxins easily and can protect against premature aging from exposure to the sun more easily. As we age and overexpose our skin to the sun, this process naturally slows down. Applying antioxidants topically that include Co-Enzyme Q-10 every morning and evening will boost your skin cell activity and stimulate collagen production.
Key Benefits of C0-Enzyme Q-10:
- It energizes and rejuvenates your skin by increasing cell activity.
- It protects against photo-aging
- It stimulates collagen production- Hello Firmer, Tighter Skin!
- It is a potent anti-oxidant that acts against oxidative damage (damage from UV rays, pollution, toxins and stress.)
- All of our H&H Science skin care treatments and moisturizers contain Co-Enzyme Q-10 along with a blend of other antioxidants.

The Benefits of Using Vitamin E
Vitamin E cream has been used as a beauty treatment for many years and has been known to reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks. The reason why this vitamin has become so widely used in many creams is because of its ability to penetrate deep into the skin and stimulate natural cell growth. While vitamin E has been proven to reduce the appearance of scars when it is applied to recently-healed wounds, it also has a number of anti-aging properties. After being absorbed into the skin, this vitamin sinks below the surface, to the deeper layers of the skin and encourages the natural growth of collagen. This gives skin a firmer, plumper look, which can play a significant role in reducing the appearance of many fine lines and wrinkles
Key Benefits of Vitamin E:
- Fights and protects against free radical scavengers (UV Rays, pollution, stress and toxins)
- Boosts collagen for firmer, tighter skin
- Reduces the appearance of scars on recently healed wounds
- Reduces the appearance of stretch marks
- Improves the hair and skin by stimulating natural cell growth
All of our H&H Science skin care treatments and moisturizers contain Co-Enzyme Q-10 along with a blend of other antioxidants.

When it comes to treating your skin to antioxidants, remember the old adage: “Strength in numbers.” When the top-notch medical grade antioxidants we described above are combined and used together and reinforced with daily use of a broad spectrum sunscreen and other antioxidants and skin-beneficial ingredients, the results are remarkable! Remember to select medical grade products that contain higher potencies of antioxidants and to use those that have been clinically researched and tested.
