In brief: Antioxidants
Antioxidants are extremely important in protecting the skin against damage.
Most of the time, dermatologists now rely on topical formulations of antioxidants.

In brief: Yes
Yes antioxidants fight off free radicals which ages our skin and other organs.
I recommend getting your antioxidants naturally from whole fruits and veggies rather than man made synthetic vitamins. An apple alone has over 12, 000 phytonutrients all working in synergy to give us optimal health. Topicals only reach the outer (dead) layer of skin. Proper nutrition raises the antioxidants in our blood.
