So let’s talk antioxidants.
What are they? What do they do for our body and our skin? Well, quite a lot actually! Antioxidants act like a dynamic shield against the detrimental effects of free radicals or ‘oxidants’ which are caused by external factors such as smoking, pollution, UV light and even environmental aggressors that you cannot see.
Free radicals that are left to roam unhampered can actually harm the skin and most certainly contribute to skin damage and perceptible signs of ageing.
Thankfully with regard to skincare, you can find antioxidants in various products, look for Vitamins C & E, Green Tea, Acai, Pomegranate and antioxidant rich botanicals like Amlaki, Sea-kelp and all our natural products contain high concentrations of these botanical extracts rather than the potentially harsh ingredients that can cause irritation and sensitive skin issues.
Also to improve not only skin health but total body health try and consume antioxidant rich foods and drinks such as green tea, leafy greens and plenty or orange and red fruits.
