Why you should avoid Free Radicals

The reality of aging may not seem daunting when you’re younger but as more fine lines and grey hairs start to appear, it can become harder and harder to feel confident. While there are no certifiable ways to stop the effects of aging; most dermatologists agree that avoiding substances like alcohol and catching up on your sleep is the best solution.

What if those methods don’t work for you?

Free radicals are atoms with unstable molecular bonds. To become more stable they take electrons from any available atoms. Even though we are exposed to free radicals every day, they are still considered harmful and can generate illnesses. When a free radical isn’t able to find other molecules to bond with, they try to bond with our cells. This can cause a breakdown of the DNA in our skin, resulting in age spots, dullness, wrinkles and sagging.

Antioxidants are the best solution to the effects of free radicals, because of their extra electron. They can be found in foods like spinach and dark chocolate. Vitamin C, A and E are also considered antioxidants and are in almost all of our treatments and serums with GLOWBIOTICS!
