Antioxidants For Healthy Skin- #SkinSuperhero's

What are anti oxidants ?

First we have to understand free radicals. free radicals are waste substances produced in our body as we processes food and reacts to the environment. If the body cannot process and remove free radicals efficiently, oxidative stress can result. This can harm cells and body function. 

Factors that increase the production of free radicals in the body can be internal, such as any disease, or external, like, pollution, UV exposure, and cigarette smoke.

Antioxidants are said to help neutralize free radicals in our bodies, and this is thought to boost overall health. 

Benefits Of Antioxidants For Skin 

Uv rays, pollution and other environmental factors causes free radicals to form in the skin. While our skin has a complex network of antioxidants that fights the negative effects of free radicals, the level of naturally present antioxidants can get depleted with age, due to poor diet or exposure to stress etc.

The skin ageing process relies on oxidative stress, mainly due to environmental factors. With sufficient antioxidant in our diet & skincare we can slow down the ageing process and minimize the sun damage. 
Antioxidants included in skincare products helps to restore healthy levels of various protective molecules in our skin and thus protect us from free radical damage and other type of oxidative stress.
