Free radicals (generated from UV rays and other environmental factors) contribute to skin aging as unstable molecules that damage everything from cell walls to DNA. Antioxidants are considered superheroes of anti-aging since they not only act as free radical scavengers but also work on your skin to reduce inflammation, promote healthy collagen production and reduce cell damage by impeding the harmful effects of sun exposure. To defend itself from environmental stress, your skin needs a lot of these vital elements from your diet as well as topical skincare products. In today’s post, I am reviewing an Antioxidants Concentrate by Your Best Face skincare. This product is an anti-aging serum with a cocktail of antioxidants and is suitable for all akin types.
Product Description from YBF-skincare website :
Antioxidants Concentrate is a new lightweight skincare serum that helps you bring together powerful anti-aging antioxidants with fresh items at home for extremely effective and unique do-it-yourself skincare products. Free-flowing, lightweight and extremely versatile, you can use Antioxidants Concentrate on its own or blended with your favorite skincare creams, masks and serums.

My Review : This lightweight skincare serum spreads very easily and sinks into the skin perfectly to impart a smooth, semi-matte finish. It feels so smooth going on and the emollient formula hydrates skin without leaving my face greasy or shiny. I use it on my face and especially around the eyes (never stings or irritates) both at night and in the morning under my moisturizer with sunscreen. There is no need to overzealously apply this serum as a little goes a long way and imparts a soothing dose of skin-beneficial ingredients that really seem to boost skin’s health – both immediately and over time. My skin definitely feels smoother and even-toned with the consistent use of this serum over the past few weeks.
Since antioxidants deteriorate rapidly when repeatedly exposed to air (oxygen) and sunlight, the airless pump packaging of this skincare serum is ideal to preserve the potency of its formula. Also, I would like to mention that not only does this serum provide your skin with an antioxidant boost but also serves as a silky makeup primer. I love to wear it under my foundation as it provides a smooth base for makeup application and enables my makeup to last longer. Here is a little swatch:
To sum it up, this antioxidant-laden serum can be a great addition to your skincare regimen to constantly mitigate free-radical damage and maintain a youthful appearance. It is suitable even for those with sensitive skin and delicate eye area because of its gentle, non-irritating formula. Compared with products for use around the eyes, it’s a great value at $55/1 oz (30 ml) and you get your money’s worth with a powerful anti-aging formula that works!
