Much of the success is due to the use SkinCeuticals antioxidant,¿, which is an antioxidant


antioxidants are molecules that are capable of stabilizing the reactive oxygen species, or free radicals, which are in turn one of the causes for the skin ages. These highly reactive molecules are able to mate with many structures of the epidermis and dermis, especially to DNA, causing mutations and subsequently producing cutaneous aging damage, tumors, such as activation of dermal metalloprotease enzymes that digest the collagen and then if we are able to stabilize these highly reactive structures, and this is achieved using antioxidants, the epidermal and dermal damage produced by reactive oxygen species are limited.

¿They have antioxidants benefits for our skin


Our skin is provided with natural antioxidants have all these antioxidants, that what they have to do is block the reactive oxygen species from metabolism or from the damage of UV radiation and protect the skin their deleterious effects. However the problem of natural antioxidants is which rapidly depletes especially when the skin is subjected to significant oxidative stress such as ultraviolet radiation produced. When we apply antioxidants topics what we are doing is reinforce a natural balance that breaks quickly with ultraviolet radiation and allow expose us to significant oxidative stresses without reactive oxygen species danen our skin.

¿They have different SkinCeuticals antioxidants


The application of topical antioxidants is extremely controversial because is very difficult to achieve a stable formulation. Very few formulas on the market on the one hand have demonstrated its stability, on the other hand its ability to penetrate the skin and moreover their ability to once in the skin to exert its antioxidant action demonstrated this as a photoprotective effect, ie as prevention of mutations induced by ultraviolet radiation, such as preventing the activation of metalloproteinases and ultraviolet radiation -induced reduction of the number of celu - the sunburn after ultraviolet radiation.

In the case of antioxidants SkinCeuticals this is achieved thanks to the Patent Duke are a patent formulation consisting of a formula with high concentrations of antioxidants, ie a high concentration, very too low to achieve an equilibrium pH, a cocktail, and the combination of various antioxidants, for example vitamin C, vitamin E and ferulic acid, or vitamin C and phloretin, which are cocktails of antioxidants formula confer great force on the one hand and a very great stability, on the other. In both cases these formulas, apart from being stable and being powerful, which is shown to have photoprotective effect in vivo.

One of the flagship products is the phloretin serum CF,¿, which is the key to its success


phloretin CF is an antioxidant with great force. The key to their success is due to different reasons, first to its high antioxidant power that can up to 8 multiply the natural defenses of the skin against ultraviolet radiation. In addition to its excellent cosmeticidad and their in the short -term effects on the light and texture of the skin.

But another effect that I, as a dermatologist, I take more is that in difficult situations to deal with in the query such as the melasma, which is a condition that relapse and recurrence despite treatment and relentlessly every summer reappears in the face of very many women, when one keeps the skin antioxidada for a reasonable time, maybe 5-6 months permanently, these patients have a much lower recurrence of melasma in the summer months, or at least if your melasma recurrence does so in a much less intense.
