A- FOR ANTI-OXIDANTS
WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF ANTI-OXIDANTS
|When it comes to fighting off free radicals and oxidative stress in the skin antioxidants are our superheroes. (We talk a lot about free radicals at F)|
|Antioxidants can neutralize free radicals before they touch the cell as |
well as stop ongoing cellular damage. There is a tricky part though – only 1% of dietary antioxidants reach the surface of the skin. To effectively
protect your skin from free radical damage, you need to apply topical
Choose antioxidants wisely for best results- We tell you whats best
for your skin and whats got the most scientific studies. Yes I’ve been busy researching the best of the best.
Not all topical antioxidants are created equal. Effective topical
antioxidants must be stable and come in the purest form, so they can
penetrate the outermost barriers and reach the interior of the cell.
ZO Ossential C-Bright Serum (Click here to read) provides a potent dose of 10% pure, stabilised vitamin C that to brighten and re-texture the skin.
Vitamin E and co-enzyme Q-10 protect the skin from environmental
damage, while lipids and skin conditioners hydrate and support barrier
|WHY YOUR SKIN NEEDS ANTIOXIDANTS |
|Antioxidants are vital to a healthy skin care regimen. The major |
antioxidants found in the skin are Vitamin C and E, which we should get from our diet, and coenzyme Q10, glutathione and lipoic acid, which are
produced by our bodies. Free radicals cause chronic damage to your skin cells, and antioxidants can neutralize these dangerous molecules.
Increasing these antioxidants with supplements can replenish your
natural reservoir, but you need pretty large amounts to get only a modest
Many antioxidants are basically unstable compounds, so their ability to
get delivered into the skin in topical preparations is not always a
guarantee. But there are health benefits and anti-aging benefits to getting more Vitamin C.
|Vitamin C is Ascorbic Acid and is essential for the production of collagen, the strong connective tissue that holds the skin together. Think of it as |
your skin’s glue. Because Vitamin C can theoretically both prevent free
radical damage to the skin and promote new collagen production in the
skin, it is ideal for topical therapy using a serum that helps it penetrate
through the superficial layers of the skin.

|It seems everyone today is touting the latest and greatest to cure all of |
our health woes. Take this to turn back the hands of time, that for more
energy, those to remove those unwanted pounds or erase wrinkles, and
these to help us remember where the heck we put the car keys.
Wouldn’t be great if there really was some “magic elixir” you could take
to improve all of these areas of health and more? And wouldn’t it be even better if there were no side effects from this ingredient??
Wishful thinking, right? Maybe not. Maybe such a thing exists right
in your body, right now.
Obviously it’s not a “magic elixir” that we will be talking about. It is a
natural and indispensable molecule. It’s called glutathione, and it is
found in every cell in the body. In fact, there is virtually no organism on
Earth that doesn’t have some glutathione in its cells.
|GLUTATHIONE’S ROLE IN THE SKIN |
|Men and women of all ages are fascinated—even obsessive—when it |
comes to their skin. Whether they are concerned with acne, wrinkles, dryness, eczema, or puffy eyes, everyone wants beautiful flawless skin.
However, a lifetime of sun, wind, housework, and outdoor activities can
take its toll on exposed skin, resulting in dry, wrinkled skin and age spots that can belie a person’s actual age. Combine this with poor nutrition, stress, lack of exercise, and hormonal changes that occur at midlife and
beyond, and it’s no wonder that moisturizers, creams, and anti-aging
serums are a billion-pound market.
Fortunately, you don’t have to empty your wallet to restore the structure and health of your skin and its underlying tissues. You can actually solve problem internally and have cells heal and regenerate themselves, thanks to glutathione. Glutathione not only decreases the melanin
(pigmentation) of skin, but has also been found to decrease the
appearance of wrinkles AND increase elasticity of skin.
Glutathione works on the skin pigment production mainly by inhibiting
tyrosinase, one of the enzymes involved in the process of making
Most impressively perhaps is that studies mentioned above also show
that glutathione doesn’t just lighten, but it improves skin elasticity and decreases the appearance of wrinkles.
