When selecting skin care products, it’s important to be aware of the ingredients used to make them. Cosmetics and treatments containing extracts from antioxidant-rich plants can actually help to nourish and protect your skin. These products can not only cover up blemishes and irritation, but also help soothe the skin below.
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant used in products such as Pür Minerals 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Foundation. With SPF 15 protection, this multipurpose foundation, concealer and finishing powder helps protect your skin from the sun, while its antioxidant ingredients help to moisturize and nourish your face.
Many moisturizers also contain ingredients taken from antioxidant rich plants. Products such as Pür Minerals Mineral Moisture Complex are rich in Vitamin C, a powerful age-defying element shown to help reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles and even breakouts.
Even cleansers, such as the Pür Minerals Mineral Wash, can be rich in antioxidants, allowing you to nourish your face even as you remove dirt and cosmetics at the end of the day. That’s why it’s so important to look at ingredients. Knowing which products have antioxidants in them allows you to choose treatments which will have the most benefit for your skin.
