THE 5 ANTIOXIDANTS YOUR SKIN MUST HAVE
We all know that antioxidants offer many amazing benefits. They fight the bad compounds known as free radicals that destroy our healthy cells! We have both antioxidants and free radicals in our body. When antioxidants are outnumbered, our DNA and healthy cells are affected resulting in illnesses and premature aging. Discover why antioxidants play an important role in the body’s aging process, and what you can do to increase your antioxidants so that you can maintain your health and avoid premature skin aging!
ANTIOXIDANTS AND FREE RADICALS
Antioxidants are molecules present in the body that act as defenses to keep harmful free radicals in check. We also get our supply of antioxidants from food, especially fruits, vegetables, and vitamins such as Vitamins C and E.
Free radicals are unstable molecules that are also present in the body. They become harmful when their levels become too high. Free radicals can cause illnesses like heart diseases, cancer and diabetes. They also play a role in our body’s aging process including signs of aging that manifest in our skin like wrinkles!
The amount of free radicals in our body can be significantly increased by external factors such as lifestyle, stress, and environmental aggressors like too much sun exposure and pollution.
ANTIOXIDANTS AND THE SKIN
Skin is loaded with antioxidants to protect and heal itself. Because of aging, sun damage, and other changes that the skin goes through, it starts to produce less and less antioxidants. When this happens, free radicals take over. They begin to break down the skin’s collagen levels and cellular structure, which results in skin aging in the form of wrinkles and fine lines!
That is why it’s very important to protect the skin by nourishing it with the antioxidants it needs, either from dietary sources or from specially formulated skincare products.
