Topical Antioxidants Reduce Lines and Wrinkles

In an 18-month study of 111 women, aged 35-45, topical antioxidants applied to the arms and face reduced lines and wrinkles better than placebo. The topical treatment also improved skin thickness and elasticity. The mixture — which included vitamins C and E, rosemary extract, N-acetylcysteine, ubiquinone, tocopherol cysteamine and butylated hydroxytoluene — was more effective than taking oral antioxidants.
