3 ways to get antioxidants before breakfast
Antioxidants aren't only found in your food.
Since free radical attacks come with city living, we can’t get enough of the body’s anti-free radical warriors. Here’s how to start stocking your antioxidant arsenal at daybreak.
Out of bed and into downward dog
Extend the morning stretch into more mini-yoga sessions. Moderate exercise (coupled with a whole-foods-based diet) ramps up your body’s antioxidant levels. Your new mantra: get moving more in the morning.
Amp up the strength
Astaxanthin, 100x the strength of Vitamin E, is one of the world’s most powerful and safest antioxidants proven to boost the skin’s natural antioxidant and UV-light-protection properties. Powering every formula of the Skin Best collection, a morning shot of it - in serum or liquid or cream – gets city skin glowing again.
Go glacial in the shower
Turning your morning shower to cold can stimulate one of the body’s most powerful naturally-occurring antioxidants, glutathione. Research shows that swimmers who take the plunge in the winter have higher-than-normal glutathione levels. Sometimes you need to shiver for beautiful skin!
Before your morning smoothie even touches your lips, your skin will be well-protected and ready to hit the city.
