ANTIOXIDANTS By The OrglizLab
You have probably heard this name on many occasions, and after sunscreens, antioxidants are a MUST in our Skincare routine, do you know why? Exactly, because they neutralize the effect of free radicals.
Free radicals, in easy-to-digest words, are ''incomplete'' molecules that look for others to be able to complement themselves, therefore, they are extremely reactive. The source of free radicals that interact with our skin comes mainly from air pollution, cigarette smoke or even from our own body when consuming certain types of food such as margarine or trans fatty acids such as fats from meat and milk, which after the metabolic process, seek to come into contact with the cells of our skin, which causes a chain reaction that destroys our cells.
Products with an antioxidant effect are thus carriers of molecules that react with these free radicals, protecting our skin cells, which helps prevent the consequences of oxidative stress such as premature wrinkles, loss of elastin, decreased moisture , increased pigmentation or reduced moisture barrier, among others.
