What is an Antioxidant?

They are produced naturally in the body and work to protect your skin from all the harmful elements including pollutants, dust, debris, cigarette smoke, and even the sunshine. One of the biggest causes of free radical formation is emotional distress, and your metabolism also plays a role in their formation. Free radicals damage your skin and the antioxidant(s) work to repair the damage.


Sources of Antioxidants
