What Are Free Radicals – How is my skin affected?

There is a lot of talk about free radicals in the skin industry these days…and for good reason. There are a lot of harmful free radicals we are unknowingly exposed to all the time.

“Free radicals are created as an essential part of life when food is oxidized to create energy. During the process, free radicals are produced that are highly charged oxygen molecules and are harmful to the skin and the body in general. They are usually neutralized by antioxidants like vitamins C, E, etc. However, when the body is overwhelmed by free radicals, they overcome the antioxidants available, which may lead to wrinkling on the skin and may also be associated with precancerous and cancerous skin lesions. The most common causes of free radicals are excess sun, smoking, stress and obesity. The best way to fight free radicals is with natural antioxidants, as well as topical antioxidant creams or lotions.”
