The Most Effective Anti Aging Antioxidants

We have been hearing it for a few years now…anti oxidants are like the fountain of youth, but there are so many of them, which ones are the best? Allure magazine spoke with Dr. David McDaniel, a professor of clinical dermatology and plastic surgery from East Virginia Medical School who specializes in antioxidants, and here’s what he said. “Some of the most effective are Coffeeberry, phloretin with vitamin C and feurelic acid, and idebenone.”

He recommends any of these reliable creams:
RevaleSkin Night Cream (with Coffeeberry)  $110
SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF $150
Prevage MD  $150

If you buy any of these products, use the coupon code BASICS20 at checkout and save 20%. A nice little savings for these pricey items I think.

kin Night Cream (with Coffeeberry) SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF


Of these three products, I have only used the Skinceuticals Phloretin CF and it is absolutely my favorite anti aging skin care serum ever! Based on customer comments about all three products, RevaleSkin and Skinceuticals get the highest marks, 5 out of 5 stars overall, the Prevage just got 3 out of 5 stars. However, I use another idebenone based cream that I really like, Obaji, and I know it isn’t really for anti-aging, it’s more for fading sun and age spots. So that may account for the lower marks on Prevage if the customers were expecting wrinkle reduction.

Dr. Daniel went on to say, “I really like the idea of using two different ones, either on alternating nights or one in the morning and one in the evening. The antioxidants actions are somewhat different, so getting some of both makes more sense.”

Like I said, I use the Skinceuticals Phloretin CF in the evening and an idebenone based cream during the day and I love the way my once freckly, slightly lined face looks. I swear by anything from Skinceuticals, though. I’ve never tried one of their products I didn’t love.
