Free Radicals?? What are they??!!

Posted on December 01, 2015 by Melanie Brown

Have you ever noticed that when there is a discussion about skin care, strange words seem to come out of nowhere? No one really understands all the jargon.

I was reading an article about free radicals and thought what on earth are they? There was no explanation as to what they were, which left me thinking why are they so important and why should I care?

Well after some research, I found out that free radicals are created when oxygen molecules lose their electrons. They have a knock on effect of destroying cells such as skin cells. Combined with a bad diet, pollution or exposure to sunlight the result is aging skin and the breakdown of collagen. The skin loses its elasticity and suppleness and problems such as inflammation and eczema are developed.

So, how do we combat this?

Antioxidants such as Vitamin A, B and C and beta-carotene found in foods such as tomatoes, carrots and berries, all help in the fight to protect and regenerate the skin.

As most of you know, I recently fell in love with the Aluminé Skincare range and after doing my research, realized that I am actually doing something right.

The Detoxifying Citrus C Facial Cleanser is rich with Vitamin C and beta-carotene. Vitamin C protects the skin and helps with the production of collagen. Beta-carotene nourishes the skin and combats aging and wrinkles.  To put it quite simply, Aluminé is a fantastic natural, chemical and paraben free range which cares for your skin. It can be used by men and women and produces excellent results.
