Antioxidants for Sun Damage and Wrinkles


Most plants have these nutrients in varying amounts. They can counter “free radicals,” tiny particles that harm DNA inside of cells. Skin cells with that kind of damage can speed up aging, leading to wrinkles, dry skin, dark circles under eyes, dull skin, and more.

Foods that are rich in antioxidants are good for your skin and your overall health. You can also apply products that have them. Those with the most antioxidants that have been shown to repair damage and slow the aging process include:

  • Acai oil
  • Alpha-lipoic acid
  • Green tea extract
  • Retinol
  • Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)
  • Caffeine

Other plant-based or natural treatments for aging skin found in skin-care products include:

  • Alpha-hydroxy acid
  • Salicylic acid
