anti-oxidants in lotions

I’ve been warned not to take any anti-oxidants during my chemo. I asked my oncologist about anti-oxidants in lotions though and she said that systematic absorption is minimal on the face so just make sure your skin doesn’t react to the particular lotion. Does anyone know if the same rule applies to body lotions since of course the skin on your body is way more prevalent than the skin on your face. Although if it doesn’t, I don’t know what lotion to use. They all seem to have some kind of anti-oxidant in them since of course the skin loves them and finds that soothing. 

Maybe ask about this in the Ask the Nurses section too ?
