Now that it’s summer, we all want the same thing: radiant skin. The kind that feels soft as we wipe water from our face after a dip in the pool and that glows when we’re eating dinner al fresco.

The best way to get it this summer (and always)?

Nourish it with antioxidants.

Antioxidants neutralize the chemicals that end up in skin cells after a day in the sun and cause things we don’t want, like wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.

But eating carrots and kale might not be enough for your skin this summer. Like our founder explained in this article, when we eat antioxidants, they spread out across all of our body tissues, not always getting enough to our skin to battle the effects of sun exposure.

That’s why we recommend applying antioxidant-rich oils and extracts topically to restore your skin and help fight skin aging caused by sun exposure.

So as you’re restocking your summer beauty essentials, look for these antioxidant-filled ingredients to give your skin a boost in its quest for radiance.

GREEN TEA OIL actually dissolves the oil that holds dead skin cells together, reducing skin flaking and improving appearance. Find it in our Pacific Cleanser and our Haircare Duet.

GREEN TEA EXTRACT tones and soothes the skin, while fighting inflammation. And white tea extract is an even more powerful anti-aging agent, fighting enzymes that attack collagen and elastase. Find them in our Pacific Mist.

SEA KELP EXTRACT promotes skin hydration, protects cell activity and acts as a powerful antioxidant. Find it in our Pacific Mist.

VITAMIN C (or l-ascorbic acid) repairs cells so they can restore collagen production. Find it in our Pacific Topical Vitamin C Treatment.

FERULIC ACID repairs sun damaged skin and is most effective when combined with Vitamin C. Find it in our Pacific Topical Vitamin C Treatment.

CARROT SEED OIL has been used in skincare for centuries to improve skin tone, elasticity and overall health. Find it in our Pacific Eye Serum.

GRAPESEED OIL is an anti-aging powerhouse rich in antioxidants and emollients that fight inflammation. Find it in abundance in our Pacific Face Oil, Pacific Balancing Face Oil and Pacific Soothing Face Oil.
