What are antioxidants?
Antioxidants are molecules that protect our body from the harmful effects of free radicals and serve other important functions like fighting infections.
Free radicals are unstable molecules that harm cells and when they outnumber antioxidants in our body, a state called oxidative stress occurs.
UV radiation from the sun, blue light, sleep deprivation, unhealthy dietary habits may contribute to the state of oxidative stress, causing premature aging of the skin.
Protecting our skin against sun damage, following a healthy diet filled with anti-oxidants rich fruit and vegetables such as strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, mangoes, leafy greens etc, and choosing skin care products that contain high quality anti-oxidants is the best way to protect our skin from the formation of deep wrinkles, dryness and dullness.
