Google Coffeeberry and you will find at least 20 articles praising the fruit from the coffee plant as a newcomer in the vast antioxidant market, but there are reasons why it’s being called a legitimate star.
First though, what’s an antioxidant? We hear it all the time but do we really know what it is or why to use one? It’s basically protection for your skin against free radicals (pollutants in the air) that cause inflammation and eventually the breakdown of collagen and aging. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals on the skin’s surface before they’re penetrated keeping skin healthy and young. A good example I use is when you cut up an apple, the free radicals in the air begin to turn it brown right away, but to keep its color you can pour lemon juice over it since vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is an antioxidant. Antioxidants include vitamins A, C and E, white, red and green tea, pomegranate, Idebenone and many more. The problem isn’t finding an antioxidant, it’s finding one stable enough to penetrate the skin where it can do its work. Vitamin C is known to be an extremely unstable molecule and even in its best form (L-Ascorbic Acid) roughly 30% is penetrated so scientists have been on the hunt ever since.
Fast forward to RevaleSkin.
Their new line includes a cleanser, a day treatment and a night protection and it’s found to be up to 10 times more effective in fighting off free radicals then any other antioxidant. It’s received a ton of press and is only sold in a physicians office.
This is a product for everyone and I would recommend using it daily, I use mine in the morning under moisturizer and I never miss a day. Although you may see some differences in fine lines over a 12 week period, the payoff is years from now when your skin just looks great.
