Retinol is a powerful antioxidant for fighting environmental aggressors that cause premature skin aging. Free radicals play a dual role in our body that can be both beneficial and harmful. Environmental factors like radiation from the sun, pollution, cigarette smoke, and other toxic chemicals are also known to trigger the formation of free radicals. Oxidative stress breaks down collagen, hinders skin’s natural repair process and triggers inflammation—and you see these as fine lines, wrinkles, loose skin, acne breakouts or blemishes, and a blotchy skin tone.
By using SOTA restore with retinol you are scavenging free radicals, and these antioxidants can help prevent and correct these visible signs and give your skin a more youthful glow.
Free radicals and frequent sun exposure can also trigger changes in our skin’s melanin production, causing dark spots and uneven skin tone. By using SOTA restore with retinol the antioxidants can help prevent abnormal skin pigmentations and can reduce photodamage.
