Your skin is subjected to external aggressions daily: pollution, UV rays, smoking, and many others. As a result, your skin is subject to premature ageing due to oxidative stress, leading to the appearance of wrinkles on your face. So how can you effectively combat this? Four antioxidant solutions focus on the daily use of cosmetic products that address this problem.



First, we need to go back to the definition of antioxidants: what are they used for? How can they rejuvenate our skin? To sum up, antioxidants aim to limit the effects of skin oxidation by fighting against free radicals. The latter is a consequence of the body’s reactions to certain external aggressions, among which we find oxidative stress.

Antioxidants are agents that fight against the harmful effects of these reactions and are present in many anti-ageing products, including Max & Florence cosmetics. Here is a description of four natural antioxidants to include in your facial care routine.

Peach blossom, a true revitalising agent

Traditionally used in China for its moisturising benefits, peach blossom extract is an effective antioxidant for limiting the effects of pollution. It is a skin barrier against fine particles coming into contact with your skin. Peach blossom slows down the build-up of lipofuscin, as well as the oxidation of the epidermis. The consequences are visible on your skin in the form of wrinkles and various age spots.


The solution to this problem: Max & Florence day cream, a product of natural origin, is particularly suitable for our urban readers. Apply it to your face as a make-up base in the morning and throughout the day.

The many benefits of prickly pear extract

Another essential ingredient for slowing down skin ageing is prickly pear. Among its components, vitamin K prevents the appearance of dark circles, and vitamin C gives your skin a new lease on life!

But that’s not all: it’s rich in beta-carotene, ideal for delaying skin ageing by protecting cells against free radicals.


All of these ingredients can be found in Max & Florence’s Eye Contour Care! It is an essential product for the prolonged hydration of your skin; its light texture is a barrier against atmospheric pollution and protects you from oxidative stress!

Argan oil and its antioxidant properties

Here we are dealing with an emollient containing a good number of antioxidants; this help to slow down the premature ageing of the skin, thanks to an effective fight against the free radicals emanating from oxidative stress. In concrete terms, this anti-ageing oil accelerates cell regeneration and restores your skin’s hydrolipidic film!

In addition, its use makes the skin more elastic and firm, giving the complexion a younger look.


Rest assured! Our tightening serum has all the features mentioned above. A must-have for all dry, tired skin, this Max & Florence solution helps smooth your skin. How do you incorporate it into your skincare routine? Use it before your moisturiser, and apply it by gently massaging your face and neck.

Facing external aggressions: avocado oil

Finally, avocado oil is an essential emollient to rejuvenate your skin! Indeed, its vitamin E content contributes to your skin’s barrier function. This antioxidant oil is a good way to fight against the effects of skin ageing.

In addition, this emollient contains carotenoids that protect you from the sun’s rays by moisturising the skin.
