Antioxidants have powerful anti-aging benefits and help protect skin from damage-causing free radicals, pollution and UV. The delicate skin of the under eye is often the first to show signs of aging over the years. It’s also certainly the first to give away that you’re tired after a long night. When antioxidants are folded into under-eye products, they can help erase damage and prevent future problems from happening by protecting and revitalizing skin.
