Blooming into Spring with Antioxidant-Rich Serums

greenlane Antioxidant-Rich Serums

The gentle spring sunshine is finally creeping its way into our lives again. Although it’s wonderful to feel the warmth on our skin, UV exposure and free radical damage from environmental aggressors can cause signs of premature skin aging.

Antioxidants can be thought of as natural protectors that prevent or delay some types of cell damage. They are crucial for keeping free radicals under control, by stabilizing harmful electrons that would otherwise damage healthy cells.

They are an essential and highly beneficial natural ingredient in clean beauty products. Vitamins A, B (Niacinamide), C and E are a few antioxidants commonly found in skincare products. Olive oil, citrus, green tea, citrus peel and plum are some great natural sources of antioxidants.

Antioxidant-rich serums provide deep nourishment and give our skin readily available nutrients that are needed for replenishing and repairing skin. 

Serums are the best and easiest way to incorporate antioxidants into an existing skincare routine. Greenlane’s founder, Lara Petrig Schurter, explains, “Because the molecules in a serum are so fine, they’re really able to soak into the skin better and deeply nourish the skin.” We are happy to give you in-store advice on the best serum for your specific needs. We have an array of antioxidant-rich serums for you to pick from and add to your spring basket:
