Spoilt for choice with antioxidants? RefinedMD has the right one for you!

Using an antioxidant daily can help you achieve healthy, bright skin, but watch out! The “wrong” antioxidant for your skin goals and needs can backfire. For most patients, Dr. Steven Swengel recommends a daytime antioxidant, a nighttime retinol or TretA, and only using medical-grade peptide technology along with a pure, zinc-based sunscreen. However, there are a lot of products within this “fabulous four” skin care regimen to choose from. We’ll help you make the right selection.

Most antioxidants are made with vitamin C (ascorbic acid), and they are a fan favorite at RefinedMD. They come in a range of pH options and delivery systems to ensure the products penetrate your skin at just the right depth. This means getting matched with the right antioxidant requires expert guidance. Plus, Vitamins C and E are great, but they’re not for absolutely everybody. Some patients might find these vitamins make them red and flushed. The good news is that there are many other products that can achieve similar in those with more sensitive skin, such as:  resveratrol, green tea polyphenols, caffeine, C-ferulic, Silymarin.  Each one is chosen for its respective skin type needs.
