Bad little free radicals need to be kicked out by antioxidants which we take internally and topically too! Don’t forget skin is the last organ the internal antioxidants will reach, so topically- applied antioxidants are very important for the skin! However the topical (ie: Vitamin C – available in 100% powder form at Bare Bella, just add a shake to your moisturiser ) must be strong to be effective!
Free radicals are unstable molecules that damage and breakdown collagen which causes skin dryness, fine lines and wrinkles.
Free Radicals, if allowed to run free in the body, are believed to be involved in degenerative diseases, senescence (the aging process), and cancers.
Once formed these highly reactive radicals can start a chain reaction, like dominoes.
Antioxidants are molecules which can safely interact with free radicals and terminate the chain reaction before vital molecules are damaged. So we need them to keep us from aging inside and out.
Free radicals come from outside influences like pollution, for example smokers are subject to a lot more free radical damage on their skin.
Antioxidants likeVitamin C,Vitamin A,resveratrol are fantastic and easy to get a hold of, but it is better to have a high potency product which will get better results faster!
