It’s not for nothing that skin care aficionados are head over heels for antioxidants. The right antioxidant—think: vitamin C, vitamin E, resveratrol, and more—can help neutralize the effects of free radicals induced by environmental aggressors, revive a lackluster complexion, and reveal radiant skin. Don’t know which formula to pick? Don’t fret. From serum to BB cream, we share four products with antioxidants—at every price point—below.
$$$$: SKINCEUTICALS C E FERULIC ($163 MSRP)
Well-regarded by editors and derms alike, C E Ferulic is a holy grail antioxidant serum in the industry. The brand recommends layering C E Ferulic underneath broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher, as antioxidants and sunscreen are the ultimate anti-aging power duo.
$$$: LA ROCHE-POSAY ACTIVE C10 ($52.99 MSRP)
For the benefits of a vitamin C serum in a lightweight cream texture, look no further than this antioxidant-formulated concentrate. With hyaluronic acid and vitamin C, this formula helps visibly reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles while smoothing the appearance of skin texture and boosting radiance.
$$: VICHY IDÉALIA RADIANCE BOOSTING ANTIOXIDANT SERUM ($39 MSRP)
Are the two previous products too steep for your budget? Perhaps this beauty-boosting serum will fit the bill. It’s enriched with antioxidant-infused Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water powered by 15 essential minerals to help strengthen skin’s moisture barrier function so it can better protect against aggressors like stress and pollution. What’s more, the refreshing, lightweight texture leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth.

At just under $11, this BB cream is an affordable way to incorporate antioxidants into your routine. The multi-tasking skin beautifier—infused in an ultra-light lotion with antioxidant vitamins C & E—helps hydrate, prime, and correct skin, while camouflaging imperfections for flawless-looking skin.
