Oxidative Stress Skin Care
Modern living causes our skin and body to face an unavoidable onslaught of oxidative stress around the clock. Oxidative stress is what happens when the production of free radicals exceeds the body’s ability to detoxify itself of the free radicals.
What Are Free Radicals?
Oxygen molecules must have even paired electrons to work successfully in the body. Free radicals are unstable molecules with unevenly paired electrons: they seek out even molecules to steal an electron from to become even (stable) again.
Increased free radical generation can be caused by exposure to stress, viruses, and toxins including cigarettes, pollution, ozone, UV light, and industrial chemicals.
Free radicals alter lipids, proteins, and DNA, leading to issues including inflammation and signs of aging like lines and wrinkles.
