Boosting up on antioxidants in your skincare, food and supplements is one of the best ways the skin and body defends itself from free radicals.
what are free radicals? Free radicals are oxidative stresses that causes cell damage and eat up skin supporting fibres collagen and elastin to breakdown and deplete. which leads to the skin wrinkling and premature ageing.
Free radicals are caused by environmental and internal stresses. Such as smoke, pollution, too much sun exposure, unhealthy lifestyle/diet and stress.
Antioxidants react with free radicals and neutralise them and they also stop them from continuing to cause more damage and more free radical creation.
And as we grow older the production of free radicals over powers our antioxidant system and we eat badly and expose ourselves to environmental and life stresses, this process speeds up.
With the weather getting warmer, this means more time out in the sun and let’s be honest gets us in the mood for drinking 😏
By boosting up our antioxidants intake, it will help counteract, strengthen and protect our skin from summer oxidative stresses.
Our favourite antioxidant in skincare and supplement is Vitamin C – one of the most powerful antioxidant. Increases the production of collagen and also involved with preventing the breakdown of it.
