Your Skin’s Defense

Solar radiation, pollution, smoking and even stress can create free radical activation and oxidation, a destructive chemical reaction.

This oxidative stress plays a major role in the aging process by damaging cells in the dermal and epidermal skin layers. 

Skin is the body’s first line of defense and has a wonderful natural antioxidant defense system consisting of antibodies and special immune cells.

Inherent genetic variations show that certain individuals are less able to defend against oxidative damage, and scientists today understand that each person actually has a different amount so called “free radical scavengers” and antioxidant ability.

External environmental factors, such as pollution, smoking and UV exposure as well as stress, can cause oxidative stress and premature aging.

Taking anti-oxidative supplements helps boost your natural ability to fight free radicals.
