Antioxidants for Ozone Protection When ozone attacks the proteins and the lipids in your skin, it causes massive amounts of inflammation (a significant cause of aging on its own). "The best defense is a good offense," says Tanzi. "You want to stop the inflammation before it happens." In addition to wearing a sunscreen every day, you should layer an antioxidant serum underneath. "There are lots of antioxidants out there, but the key is stability," says Tanzi. She recommends Skinceuticals C E Ferulic, $157, which happens to be my go-to, as well. The combination of ferulic acid with vitamins C and E helps the antioxidants last longer while moisturizing skin and calming inflammation.
