Free Radicals

Free Radicals are unstable organic molecules that are looking for other molecules to bond with to make a complete pair. When they achieve this bond, they can cause damage to the skin cells, proteins and lipids. These Free Radicals are the main cause of premature skin ageing and skin damage.

To tackle and prevent Free Radical damage, you need to use skin care products and eat foods rich in antioxidants such as Vitamins A, C and E. These will repair and offer the skin protection from Free Radicals that are present in cigarette smoke, UV rays and air pollution.
