The truth about ingesting vs. applying antioxidants "When you're talking about nutricosmetics, people think they're replacing a topical product or regimen, but that isn't the case," says Simpson. "When you're applying [the antioxidant] topically, you're putting it on the acute area. When you're taking an ingestible, that's going to go through the body, and works systemically." The primary difference between topical and oral applications of nutricosmetics is that topical products directly the area it's applied to (such as your under eye area), but consuming the nutrients will improve your skin from head to toe.
