Antioxidants for Skin Renewal

Posted by with Comments Off

Skin ages with time. The effects may not be attractive when you look into the mirror–sagging skin, wrinkles around eyes, deep facial lines, age spots, uneven skin tones and dull, tired appearance. While you may not be able to do much to prevent the natural aging process, there are ways to stall or slow the effects of aging skin. With proper skin care and a healthy diet and lifestyle, you may be able to keep your skin in optimal health.

Antioxidants have become the buzz word in the skin care world. There are obvious and compelling reasons for that. Antioxidants are substances that help to protect the cells from free radicals. The body produces free radicals when it breaks down food or when it is exposed to environmental pollutants such as tobacco smoke, carbon monoxide, UV radiation and toxic substances. These volatile free radicals can inflict damage to cells and cause inflammation, thereby increasing risks of cardiovascular disease, cancer, poor eye and skin health. But antioxidants work to capture these free radicals and nullify their devastating effects.

So, if you’re looking to keep your skin firm, clear and healthy looking, consider using skin care that incorporates antioxidants. They work overtime to prevent cellular damage to the skin and reduce photoaging (premature aging due to sun exposure), a major risk factor in hot and dry Las Vegas.

Antioxidants for the skin include vitamin A, C and E, lutein, lycopene, Coenzyme Q10, selenium and a variety of polyphenols. Consider what they can do for the skin. Certain studies show that vitamin C, E and selenium help to protect the skin against sun damage and skin cancer. These powerful antioxidants are also associated with reducing skin discoloration and wrinkles. How? They generate cell renewal, thereby rejuvenating skin. Vitamin A, a potent antioxidant, stimulates the production of collagen. Yet another naturally occurring antioxidant, Coenzyme Q10, not only boosts immunity but is also well-known for promoting cell growth while protecting against cellular damage.
