Antioxidants - skins defence system
Skin is constantly under attack by our environment.
External: UV radiation, mould, pollution, cigarette smoke,…
Internal: Stress, poor diet…
These factors cause oxidative stress. Say what? Think of a freshly cut apple, left exposed it quickly turns brown. If you sprinkle it with lemon juice it will stay fresher much longer!
Lemon is an antioxidant – the hero
Back to skin…
Oxidative stress causes free radicals.
Free radicals are unpaired electrons. They steel healthy electrons to make themselves whole, (total narcissists). This causes a damaging chain reaction. More on this here.
Antioxidants step in and give free radicals the electron they so desperately want. And ta da! Problem solved.
Antioxidants neutralize free radicals preventing cell and tissue breakdown.
However, as we age the skin produces fewer antioxidants, leading to yes, wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation etc.
Feed your skin antioxidants!
