ANTIOXIDANTS: UPGRADE YOUR SKIN DEFENCE

Updated: Oct 21, 2023



Antioxidants are a vital part of any skincare diet and play a key role in the skin health restoration process. “Antioxidants” are a buzzword in the skincare industry and are frequently referenced in conversations and messaging around skin health. However not all patients are familiar with what an antioxidant actually is, what it does and why it is important to include in your skin health regimen. Understanding what antioxidants are is the first step in upgrading your skin defence.

Antioxidants are a group of vitamins and minerals that minimize the process of oxidation, which in basic terms is a chemical reaction that occurs over time in skin. Oxidative stress contributes to the aging process, which manifests as wrinkles, sagging skin, loss of volume and more.

Additionally, as skin ages, its ability to withstand environmental aggressors and to repair damage begins to deteriorate. As internal and external stressors build up in the skin, this can contribute to chronic, low-grade inflammation that can cause premature signs of aging, which impact skin health.

Incorporating antioxidants into your skincare regimen, whether in a preventive or corrective protocol, can maximize skin health results. They offer numerous benefits, from protecting against premature signs of aging to brightening the skin—it is no wonder why they can become the hero of any skincare regimen.




THE EVOLUTION OF DAILY DEFENSE External aggressors and pollution can damage skin and contribute to the process of “inflammaging.” This can lead to premature signs of aging, such as dullness, dehydration, uneven tone and lines + wrinkles.

One way to keep the effects of inflammaging at bay is to incorporate a daily dose of antioxidants to promote youthful-looking, glowing skin. New Illuminating AOX Serum delivers

all-day environmental protection while enhancing skin glow and blurring imperfections. This concentrated daytime serum contains multiple powerhouse exclusive technologies, including



  • New ZPOLY™ complex that minimizes the signs of premature anti-aging while infusing extended hydration + strengthening skin’s barrier

  • time-released antioxidant complex ZOX12® that defends against environmental aggressors

  • soothing and free-radical neutralizing ZO-RRS2®

This concentrated serum is designed to tackle inflammaging at multiple avenues. For nighttime use, next-generation Daily Power Defense has been elevated with new technologies, like new ZPOLY™ complex, to better support the appearance of youthful, healthy skin. This clinically proven, advanced serum strengthens skin’s protective barrier and guards against environmental stressors. To get antioxidant protection around the clock, apply Illuminating AOX Serum in the morning and Daily Power Defense at night.

BRIGHTEN SKIN One of the most well-known antioxidants, vitamin C, helps to brighten the complexion and supports natural collagen production. 10% Vitamin C Self-Activating reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and promotes a more even-toned complexion by reducing surface discolouration. Added antioxidant protection minimizes the effects of environmental aggressors to promote overall skin health.

PROTECT Antioxidants play a vital role in sun protection. In addition to providing comprehensive protection against UVA, UVB and blue light, all ZO® sunscreens contain the exclusive complex ZOX12® which provides 12 hours of antioxidant protection to minimize free radical skin aging and the harmful effects of infrared-A (IR-A) rays.. Whether looking for chemical or physical sunscreens or to have one to fit your lifestyle, ZO® Sunscreens have your skin health in mind.
