Benefits of Antioxidant Skin Care Products 

Antioxidants are a category of skin care ingredients that you can never have too much of. Antioxidants help defend your skin against pollution and environmental damage which may cause sagging, wrinkles, and dull skin tone. Our range of antioxidant serums serves a multitude of purposes so be sure to choose the right one to serve your needs. 

Protects Against Environmental Stressors

You don't see it happening, but every day, your skin faces the invisible beating from pollution and environmental stressors, leading to accelerated aging. Antioxidants help to halt premature aging. 

Promotes a Healthy, Glowing Complexion

Select antioxidants offer the ability to improve the appearance of dull, uneven skin tone, giving you a more radiant skin and a healthy-looking complexion. Vitamin C, for instance, is particularly effective in brightening the skin. Say goodbye to dullness and welcome a revitalised complexion with the right skin care product rich in antioxidants.

Helps Prevent Premature Signs of Aging

Over time, the skin's firmness can decline as vital substances deplete. However, a potent blend of antioxidants in your skin care routine can fight back against premature signs of aging, resulting in a firmer and more resilient complexion.

How Antioxidants Help Your Skin

Antioxidants play a vital role in protecting your skin from free radicals and oxidative stress. They neutralise harmful molecules and help prevent damage caused by pollution, UV rays, and other environmental factors. By incorporating antioxidants into your skin care routine, you can support a healthier, more resilient complexion.

Types of Antioxidants Your Skin Needs

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, and uneven skin tone. Applied topically through skin care products like vitamin C serums preserves the skin's resilience for a firmer, smoother look and promotes a radiant complexion. 

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a popular antioxidant with multiple skin benefits. It protects the skin against external factors and is commonly found in face sunblock to counter UV damage. It also works synergistically with Vitamin C for enhanced effects. 

Green Tea

Green tea is a potent antioxidant that helps defend your skin against environmental factors and promotes a more even skin tone. Its key compound, EGCG, also actively defends the skin's surface and soothes redness.


Resveratrol, a potent polyphenolic antioxidant, provides multiple benefits for your skin. It protects the skin, interrupts environmental influences, brightens tired-looking complexions and boasts revitalising and skin-calming properties.

How to Choose the Right Antioxidant skin care Product

When it comes to antioxidants, remember that there's strength in numbers. The combination of quality antioxidants, reinforced with daily sunscreen use and other skin-beneficial ingredients, can provide remarkable results for your skin. But this necessitates choosing the right antioxidant by considering the synergy of multiple skin care products working together.

Frequently Asked Questions About Our Antioxidant Serums and Other Products

What is the difference between a facial serum and a moisturizer?

Facial serums are lightweight, concentrated formulas that deliver potent active ingredients directly to your skin. They penetrate deeper than moisturizers, targeting specific concerns. On the other hand, moisturizers are thicker creams or lotions that primarily focus on providing hydration and helping to seal in moisture. However, it's common to use both a serum and a moisturizer in a skin care routine to address different skin care needs.

How often should I use an antioxidant face serum?

The frequency of using an antioxidant serum depends on various factors, including the specific product, your skin type, and your skin care goals. It is generally recommended to use an antioxidant in both your morning and evening skin care routines. However, it's essential to follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer and consider any recommendations from your dermatologist or skin care professional to determine the optimal frequency for your individual needs.

Can I use more than one antioxidant serum at a time?

Using multiple antioxidant serums simultaneously is an option you can explore. This is because layering multiple antioxidant serums can provide a diverse range of benefits and target different skin concerns simultaneously. However, it is important to carefully consider the specific formulations and ingredients of the serums to ensure compatibility and avoid any potential adverse reactions.

Are your products vegan and cruelty-free?

We never conduct animal testing, and our dedication to cruelty-free practices is reflected in our Leaping Bunny certification. As such, we're proud to inform you that the majority of Paula's Choice products contain no animal-derived ingredients. We're committed to sourcing non-animal-derived ingredients whenever possible. 

What is the shelf life of your products?

You can conveniently find the Period After Opening (PAO) labels on the back of our packaging. The PAO date indicates the number of months a product remains usable after opening. Additionally, many of our products have stamped expiration dates ranging from 1 to 1.5 years after opening. 

Do your products contain parabens or sulphates?

At Paula's Choice skin care, we prioritise the use of high-quality ingredients, both natural and synthetic, to effectively address various skin care needs. Our formulations are carefully crafted to avoid ingredients that are known to be irritating, drying, or likely to exacerbate skin concerns.

Can I return a product if I'm not satisfied?

We offer a 14-day Satisfaction Guarantee Return Policy. If a full-sized product doesn't work well with your skin and causes irritation or allergic reactions, you can return it within 14 days of your purchase date for a full refund in the form of online credit. Unopened items can be returned within 30 days. Please note that shipping fees are non-refundable and exchanges and returns do not apply to trial-sized products.

Our website provides detailed information about each product, including recommendations for different skin types. Additionally, you can search for products based on your unique skin type and skin concerns. Refer to our Skin Care Resources, like our Skin Guide, for more tips.

How long will it take to see results from using your products?
