Beauty Myth of the Day

Scandle Candle's Beauty Myth Countdown.

Myth #20:

Antioxidants reverse wrinkles.


Antioxidants are great for the body and the skin because they fight free radical formation. They can and will, if taken regularly, prevent skin damage.
  • Antioxidants can not eliminate wrinkles or other effects of aging simply because growing old is a natural process of life.
  • Skin thickness increases with age, while skin elasticity decreases; this can not be avoided.
  • Merely taking antioxidant supplements will not correct the loss of skin elasticity or make the facial skin look younger.
  • Supplements of antioxidants will not replace a deficiency of iron or other vitamins.

Do not buy a product just because it boasts it will eliminate your already formed wrinkles and lines. It may decrease the look slightly but it cannot remove established lines.
