Antioxidants prevent free radical damage in your skin before it happens and are a powerful anti-aging tool to keep your skin looking young. Free radicals are strong oxygen charged molecules that attempt to steal electrons from other molecules and are one of the main culprits behind the formation of wrinkles, age spots, and more. Free radicals occur naturally in the body but are increased by things such as pollution, smoking, drinking, improper diets, and sun damage. Antioxidants work to neutralize these free radical oxygen cells before they damage your skin.
Many vitamins contain powerful anti-oxidizers as well as the fruits and vegetables that contain them. These antioxidants can increase collagen and elastin production, give you brighter younger looking skin, and reduce sun damage over time. Grapes, cantaloupes, cherries, blueberries, peppers, and spinach all contain high levels. Vitamin E is an amazing anti oxidant that inhibits free radicals from forming and therefore helps slow down the aging process.
Eating a diet rich in antioxidants can improve your skin, help fight and prevent numerous diseases and health issues but only a small part of what you eat gets passed on to the skin. You can correct this though by using skin care products that deliver them to your skin. Don’t wait until the effects of aging hit you to start using this knowledge to minimize things like wrinkles, age spots, and more.
