Antioxidants are substances that work as a group of purification that removes the scraps left from the cells protecting the body from their negative action.
One of the main waste substances are free radicals, molecules that are capable of damaging cellular structures such as the plasma membrane and DNA. The negative action of free radicals affects the health of the entire body by accelerating the process of cellular aging.
The aging of the skin is an evolutionary process irreversible which is divided into a set of physiological changes that determine the loss of skin hydration, the appearance of micro wrinkles, loss of elasticity, hyperkeratosis and the formation of stains.
The most obvious sign of advancing the aging process is given by wrinkles. They are divided into two types: those of expression and those of old age.
Expression lines are also seen on a young face and are determined by habits picked up when you speak or express emotions.
The wrinkles of old age, however, appear physiologically after age 30, when he began to be less that tone and that elasticity that collagen and elastin, giving the skin young.
Prevent the formation of wrinkles is the result of a synergy of features that may be summarized as follows:
- Topical application of antioxidants;
- Use constant and continuous, during sun exposure, filters that screen out UVA and UVB rays;
- Use of smoothing and exfoliating molecules, such as alpha-hydroxy acids, which stimulate the physiological cell regeneration;
Antioxidants can be found in foods such as fruits and vegetables mainly of red, orange and yellow. In theory, an adult should take, more or less, from 300 to 600 grams of fruit and vegetables per day.
Obviously ingest such quantities of fruits and vegetables every day is almost impossible and risky for the possible side effects such as bloating and indigestion.
For this reason it is necessary to take antioxidant supplements such as:
vitamin E that possesses high antioxidant activity, since it is able to neutralize the reactivity of free radicals, blocking the series of events that lead to oxidative stress responsible for damage to the cells;
vitamin C which is a powerful antioxidant used in the cosmetic field for their ability to counteract the effects of skin aging, both intrinsic and extrinsic.
This ability is due to the strong antioxidant and photo-protective of ascorbic acid.
