Most of us have some type of skin care routine. Bud did you know that healthy, beautiful skin starts with good nutrition from the inside? A balanced diet with proper nutrients and rich in antioxidants is key to having your skin look great. Free radicals, both external and internal, are a factor in the skin’s deterioration, destroying healthy cells and accelerating the aging process. Free radicals particularly damage collagen, the protein that forms the basic structure of the skin. The breakdown can leave skin looking saggy and prematurely aged.

The Facts about Free Radicals:
Q: What causes free radicals?
A: Free radicals are caused by basic bodily processes like breathing and moving, and are also formed in ever-increasing numbers outside the body by factors such as sun exposure and pollution.
Q: So how can I fight back against free radicals?
A: With Nature’s Superheroes – Antioxidants!
Antioxidants provide significant skin care benefits when applied topically and when taken in food or supplements. Antioxidants help protect skin from free radicals and counteract the breakdown of collagen.
Q. Where can we find antioxidants?
A. Antioxidants are found in a variety of foods, especially fruits, vegetables, nuts and grains. The body also creates its own antioxidant enzymes. However, our internal antioxidant systems are not 100% effective and can deteriorate with age. So we must rely on a healthy, antioxidant rich diet to more effectively combat free radicals.
