Protecting Your Skin From The Effects of Free Radicals

What are free radicals?

Our skin is subjected daily to all kinds of stress ranging from over exposure to UV rays, environmental pollutants, physical, mental and emotional stress, to smoking and other factors. These stresses lead to the production of so called ‘free radicals’. Free radicals are highly reactive chemicals that attack molecules crucial for cell function by capturing electrons and thus modifying chemical structures.

How can free radicals be neutralised?

Compounds found readily in many wholesome foods and plants, known as Anti-oxidants, counteract the effect of free radicals by neutralising them. Most of us have heard of Antioxidants such as selenium, vitamin C, E, beta-carotene and others, but may not have realised their value in natural skin care products.

In combination they can reduce the negative effects of UV damage to DNA, protect cell membranes against break down from pre-oxidation, and protect and repair DNA.

Not only do antioxidants have a positive effect on cardiovascular diseases and other disorders, but research has also shown that antioxidants have a positive effect on skin cell protection and restoration, but only if used in combination.

What Natural Skin Care Products Contain Combinations of Anti-oxidants?

Age Defying EssenceWildcrafted's Age Defying Essence, a natural anti-aging skin care formula, is a rich liquid moisturiser formulated for mature, dry and damaged skin types and contains plant extracts that are known to be high in essential fatty acids (Borage and Evening Primrose Oils), anti-oxidants (Wheat Germ Oil and Vitamins A & E) and phyto-hormones (Clary Sage and  Wild Yam). These ingredients have been shown to have rejuvenating, preservative and restorative effects on the skin.

In addition, the Essential oils of Sandalwood, Geranium, Patchouli, and Neroli are soothing and calming while Oils of Jojoba and Calendula have moisturising effects.

By using natural skin care products containing a wide range of natural antioxidants you can improve the health of your skin.
