Replenish Your Skin’s Antioxidants with Sothys Cherry Blossom and Lotus Elixir
Giving your skin a boost of hydration is a must on a daily basis, but a moisturizing spray like Sothys Body Elixir goes one step further by giving you antioxidant protection.
Why Does Your Skin Need Antioxidants?
We hear about antioxidants regularly. They usually feature in fresh produce such as tomatoes, blueberries and citrus fruits, as well as plants such as lilies and aloe. Antioxidants fight free radicals, which is of special importance to skin.
When the skin is exposed to ultraviolet light, free radicals cause oxidative stress. Although you might think of the word oxidative as meaning rust, when it comes to skin its effects can lead to various issues that you want to give a miss: fine lines and wrinkles, as well as dark spots or discoloration. To prevent this from happening, antioxidants step in and neutralize the oxidative process so it can’t cause damage to the skin.
In beauty products, common antioxidants include Vitamin C, Vitamin E, beta carotene and zinc. It’s good not only to consume antioxidants in foods that contain them in high amounts, but also to apply antioxidant-rich products to your skin so that you can reap the benefits.
Keep it Smooth
Besides for preventing free radical damage, antioxidants can also offer other benefits to your skin. One of these is to maintain its hydration. When skin is well moisturized, it not only becomes smoother but it makes wrinkles less noticeable. Oyzanol is a rare antioxidant only found in rice bran oil, an ingredient in Sothys Cherry Blossom and Lotus Elixir. It works even harder than Vitamin E to fight off free radicals; it maintains moisture in the skin and contains anti-ageing properties.
When applying a body product, you want smooth but not greasy skin. While Sothys Body Elixir gives you that nourishing moisture, it doesn’t leave behind an unattractive shine or any residue.
Repair Skin Damage
If you are already struggling with the effects of free radical damage, it doesn’t mean you have to be stuck with it. Antioxidants can repair harm that has been inflicted to the skin by free radicals. Cherry oil contains a good amount of antioxidants, including anthocyanins that improve circulation so nutrients can reach the skin and make it look healthier: think gorgeous, glowing skin! They also stabilize collagen so that skin looks younger. If you’re struggling with blotchy or discoloured skin, the issue is often due to inflammation or sun damage, so anthyocyanins can come to the rescue.
It’s often the case that you find some scented body products add more irritation to sensitive skin, but Sothys Cherry Blossom and Lotus Body Elixir is different because it contains Zea Mays, or corn oil, that is very high in a chemical non-toxic compound called allantoin. This heals irritations and wounds on the skin, while helping the skin grow healthy tissue. Think of it as getting new skin! Allantoin is often found in various skin care products, such as those targeting acne-prone skin, wrinkles, eczema and psoriasis. Sothys Body Elixir is safe for all body types.
Not only packed with ingredients to give your skin a smooth feeling and healthy appearance, Sothys skin care also smells delicious, with its delicate scent remaining on your skin for hours. The best thing is that you can use it throughout the day to replace your body moisturizer, so spritz it on liberally!
