Antioxidants are like the unsung heroes of skincare. Powerful anti-agers such as retinol and peptides get all the glory for their ability to visibly reverse skin damage caused by environmental and climate aggressors (like sun and pollution), but it’s antioxidants in the best face moisturizers that can stop this damage from occurring in the first place.
That’s why you can find potent antioxidants in the best face moisturizers from Pour Moi: Climate-Smart®Day Creams and the Night Cream, which include vitamins A, C, and E, and botanicals such as white truffle, soy, and oats. While using them may feel a bit like a leap of faith since you can’t necessarily see the changes in your skin, the research behind them is compelling enough for skin experts to recommend you get a mix in your skincare routine every single day. Here are six reasons—all rooted in science—your skin needs them, whether you live in a tropical, polar, temperate, or desert climate.
