Why should I use antioxidants topically? Antioxidants are effective in fighting the effects of free radicals, but when taken orally, antioxidants encounter the natural oxidation process that occurs in the body when free oxygen molecules interact with body tissue and other materials in the body. This process can prevent the benefits of oral antioxidants before they are able to reach the skin. Applying antioxidants topically ensures helps protect the skin from free radicals.
