How antioxidants work on the skin and why you should use them – Stress, sun exposure, pollution, tobacco and our diet contribute to the formation of free radicals, one of those responsible for our wrinkles.
Do you want to know our secret to fighting them?
What Antioxidants Can Do for Your Skin
Antioxidants help correct signs of age.
Oxidative stress breaks down collagen, hinders skin’s natural repair process and triggers inflammation—and you see these effects like fine lines, wrinkles, loose skin, acne breakouts and a blotchy skin tone. By scavenging free radicals, antioxidants can help prevent and correct these visible signs and give skin a more youthful glow.
Antioxidants help prevent sun damage.
“By definition, all antioxidants have anti-inflammatory properties,” explains Dr. Ashley Magovern, a board-certified dermatologist in Manhattan Beach, Calif. and medical director at Dermstore. “They blunt your skin’s inflammatory response to the sun’s harmful rays, preventing sunburn and providing enhanced protection against sun damage and photoaging.”
Surely You Have Heard Of Free Radicals, But Do You Know How They Work?
Free radicals are highly reactive oxygen molecules, something our bodies need, but not in this form. Instead, our oxygen molecules, but free radicals split them into two individual atoms that go in search of another to form a pair and, in doing so, cause a process called oxidative stress, damaging cell membranes, proteins, and DNA.
How Does Oxidation Work In Our Body?
We all know that fruits and vegetables turn brown in a short time; some, like apples, do so in a matter of minutes. It is due to the oxidation caused by free radicals, and the same thing happens with our body; the difference is that the result comes over the years.
The cells that damage free radicals are responsible for the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, among others, which give firmness to the skin. Aging is natural, and we cannot fight it, but oxidative stress can cause premature aging.
What Are Antioxidants?
Antioxidants are molecules that trap free radicals, neutralizing them and putting an end to the destruction they cause on our skin.
These are present in many foods: goat cheese, carrots, mango, papaya, strawberries, oranges, tomatoes, and shellfish. But it is always good to give the body an extra dose to keep it protected. The question is. Do you know how to do it?
