Anti-Aging Skin Care: Free Radicals And Wrinkles
Everyone knows some of the damage that the sun can do to our skin. But the mere act of aging plays an equal part in the wrinkles and sagginess that happens to the skin over time.
The more time we spend on this planet, the more we are exposed to damage causing free radicals. Free radicals are a natural product of some of our every day bodily functions like breathing and digestion. Free radicals bombard us from outside sources, too, such as air pollution, sun, heat, and cigarette smoke. They are impossible to avoid.
Aurora Lillo Editor of the “Best Anti Aging Skin Care” website — http://www.BestAntiAgingSkinCare.tv — pointed out;
“…So what are free radicals and how do they do so much damage? They are molecules of oxygen that somewhere along their way have lost one of their two electrons. In order to survive, free radicals rob other molecules in the body of an electron in order to correct its unstable condition. This is a vicious cycle, because when a free radical has stolen from another electron to repair itself, it creates another free radical. All of this “electron theft” going on in the body causes cell damage, and in the process changes genetic material. Damaged cells caused by free radicals can result in wrinkles because it causes the collagen and elastin in the skin to break down…”
The best way to fight this free radical damage is with their natural enemy: antioxidants. Using anti-aging creams with an abundance of antioxidants can do wonders to restore some of the damage already done, and slow down further effects of free radicals. Some of the ingredients to look for are:
· Vitamin C – This can stimulate collagen production, heal damaged skin, and help reduce fine lines.
· Peptides – These help to restore
