Abstract

The use of natural products for skin care has become more common in the past few years. Consumers are more aware of unnatural chemicals and other toxins and are searching for natural products to use on their skin. Fortunately, a large number of botanical antioxidants exist and are being marketed as either over-the-counter or prescription skin care products. Antioxidants can have profound effects on the intracellular signaling pathways involved in skin damage and thus may be protective against photodamage as well as may prevent wrinkles and inflammation. This supplement discusses the potent effect that botanical antioxidants may have in the management of a broad range of skin issues, from photoaging to inflammatory skin conditions.
