ANTIOXIDANTS AND YOUR SKIN


You've no doubt heard of Antioxidants but do you actually know how they affect your skin? Find out here...


WHAT ARE ANTIOXIDANTS?

Antioxidants help prevent or stop skin cell damage caused by oxidants. (Oxidants are free radicals).

In short…

Antioxidants are the goodies.
Free radicals (Oxidants) are the baddies.

In everyday life, our bodies generate free radicals, these free radicals play havoc with your skin by weakening our skin cells, which slows down the skin's ability to heal and repair.
