SkinHealth's philosophy concerning topical antioxidants
Topical antioxidants Vitamin A, Vitamin C , Green Tea, Vitamin E and CoQ10 are vital nutrients which feed skin its most potent weapon against “photo-aging.” During the photo-aging process, sunlight and pollutants unleash free-radicals that break down skin, causing fine lines, wrinkles and slackening.
Environmental toxins such as polllution and cigarette smoke, stress, UV sun exposure, and the natural aging process all create free-radicals, which lead to cell death.
What are "free-radicals?"
Free radials are unstable molecules with one or more unpaired electron.
Nature strives for balance, and this unpaired free radical steals an electron from a nearby molecule, turning that molecule into a free-radical. It is in essence a chain-reaction that causes increasing damage to the cells of the skin and makes our skin less healthy and older-looking.
Anti-oxidants stop the chemical chain reaction of free-radical damage
Research shows that antioxidants disarm free radicals by providing electrons to them, which disables them and preventing cell damage. As we age, the skin produces more and more free radicals, but receives fewer anti-oxidants, which are not stored in the body. The goal is to have more anti-oxidants than free radicals in the skin. If anti-oxidants are going to out number free-radicals, anti-oxidants should be applied topically to the skin in the form of a high-quality skin car product such as SkinHealth.
Using SkinHealth’s antioxidant skin care products is your skin’s best insurance against the sun-triggered damage known as photoaging.
Anti-oxidant based products at the proper concentration and with the proper delivery systems, have been shown to help reverse existing damage and visible signs of aging and retard continuing damage.
The research is compelling. It is one of the guiding principles at SkinHealth Centers.
Anybody concerned about the health and appearance of their skin should use SkinHealth's high-quality topical antioxidants, such as green tea and vitamin C, on a daily basis.
