The Antioxidant Edit

What are antioxidants? Why are they important?
Antioxidants are substances that protect our skin by neutralizing 
or preventing oxidation. Oxidation is a chemical reaction that 
produces particles called ‘free radicals’ that can damage and 
destroy healthy skin cells.
How do antioxidants work?
In simple terms, free radical atoms are missing an electron so will take electrons from healthy skin cells, causing skin inflammation and aging. Antioxidants work by providing its spare electron to the free radical so that it no longer needs to take electrons from healthy skin cells, thereby protecting it from solar damage and pollution.
What are some popular examples of antioxidants?
- Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid and ethyl ascorbic acid) is considered one of the most essential antioxidant fortifiers in skincare regimens. Using Vitamin C in the morning under SPF is an effective way to protect cells from solar damage.
- Green tea extract has multiple benefits, including neutralizing free radical damage, reducing collagen breakdown and reducing pigmentation concerns. 
- Coenzyme Q10 helps to make other antioxidants work longer and more effectively.
