Free Radicals Free Radicals
If you are a skin care junkie you have more than likely heard the term free radical, but what are free radicals? ⁣
Well, free radicals are basically unstable oxygen molecules that can cause large chain cell damage called oxidation. Oxidation is happening all around us, these unstable molecules are on a constant rampage looking for healthy cells to damage. You can see the damage they cause in an apple when you cut it in half and it goes brown – this is the process of oxidation. ⁣

So how can we protect ourselves from oxidation? That is where antioxidants come into play, they are critical in the ongoing fight. Antioxidants help to neutralise the unstable molecules preventing surface damage and are a key component in the fight against ageing. ⁣

Our bodies produce a limited number of antioxidants so it’s important to include them in your diet and apply topically for the best skin health.⁣

Vitamin C is one of the best antioxidants for skin health and the perfect defence when used in combination with a sunblock.⁣
