Cutaneous Photodamage, Oxidative Stress, and Topical Antioxidant Protection
A 2003 continuing education article from the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology (vol 48, no 1, p.1) describing the effectiveness of topical antioxidants in combatting light-related skin damage. First, the author restates the links between inadequately protective sunscreens and the resulting skin damage. Next, the author recommends fighting the resulting oxidative stress and Reactive Oxygen Species (“ROS”) by topically applying antioxidants like vitamins C and E. Finally, the author believes topically applied antioxidants more effectively target skin damage areas than diet and taking oral supplements for the same effect.
