Free Radicals and Antioxidants
There is a lot of talk about Free Radicals and Antioxidants, even though the name Free Radicals sounds like a great surfing or skate board manoeuvre, it’s actually not your friend, however on the other hand Antioxidants is.
Whether you eat antioxidant rich foods or apply them topically to your skin, they are vital to your health and wellbeing.
When applied topically or ingested, antioxidants do the job of reducing environmental damage whether it is from the sun, pollution, or just the very air we breathe. Antioxidants inhibit free-radical damage and research is abundantly clear that doing so has remarkable benefits for all skin types
What are Free Radicals?
Free radicals are atoms or groups of atoms with an odd (unpaired) number of electrons that are formed when oxygen interacts with certain molecules. Once formed these highly reactive radicals can start a chain reaction, like dominoes. Their chief danger comes from the damage they can do when they react with important cellular components such as DNA, or the cell membrane. Cells may function poorly or die if this occurs. To prevent free radical damage the body has a defence system of antioxidants.
What exactly are Antioxidants?
Men’s Botanics are enriched with ingredients that are full of antioxidants. Antioxidants are molecules which can safely interact with free radicals and terminate the chain reaction before vital molecules are damaged. Although there are several enzyme systems within the body that prevent free radicals, the principle vitamin antioxidants are vitamin E, beta-carotene, and vitamin C. The body cannot manufacture these micronutrients so they must be supplied in the diet and topically
In essence - our body needs antioxidants, antioxidants help fight against cell damage (Free Radicals).
Men’s Botanics fuels your skin with natures Antioxidants to protect against Free radical Damage
Effects of aging and wrinkles are caused by free-radical damage. When it comes to wrinkles, free-radical damage causes collagen and other vital skin functions to break down. Antioxidants are one of the major ways to slow the impact of free-radical damage. In fact, antioxidants are so important for the body (and skin is the body's largest organ!) they are being studied by thousands of scientists all over the world. Many scientists think that if there is a fountain of youth, antioxidants could be in it!
Great Men's skin care products, whether it comes in a liquid, gel, serum, lotion, or cream, should contain a potent assortment of stable antioxidants to interrupt free-radical damage and keep it from harming your skin.
