RADICAL BEAUTY – Fight Free Radicals With Antioxidants
What on earth are free radicals?
You may have heard about them, but do you know what free radicals are or how they affect you and your skin?
Free radicals are good cells gone rogue. They are unstable molecules that are missing an electron which is why they will attack the nearest stable molecule in an attempt to steal the electrons to make itself whole. The attacked molecule then becomes a free radical and sets off a chain reaction. Basically, when a healthy cell goes over to the dark side, they become a free radical and search-and-destroy mission for other, healthy cells.
These particles make cells malfunction – and nobody wants a dysfunctional face! Basically because, the more free radicals that are present in our skin, the faster we age.
