Free radicals. Reactive oxygen species. Antioxidants. WHAT?.

Free radicals. Reactive oxygen species. Antioxidants. WHAT? Nowadays we read about these three everywhere but don’t get in many cases to clearly understand why topic antioxidants are beneficial for your skin. In the following article, I’ll be explaining in a brief, simple way why you should use topic antioxidants everyday.

Let’s start by defining what free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS) are. 

ROS are unstable molecules that are produced during a cell’s normal metabolism. The excess of these unstable molecules can accumulate on your cells and endanger other molecules such as proteins, lipids and DNA, accelerating your skin’s aging process and increasing the risk of cancer. Free radicals make part of ROS, and have the ability of producing oxidative damages when not controlled. 

Therefore, ROS serve as messenger molecules when there’s a balance between their production and elimination. When there’s an imbalance, oxidative stress emerges and with it, pathological consequences and an accelerated aging process. 

So, what’s an antioxidant? 

Antioxidants are substances that neutralize reactive oxygen species, preventing oxidative damage to cells and tissues. Some antioxidants are produced by your own metabolism, but in a world in which you are exposed to different harmful situations such as UV radiation, temperature and poor nutrition,  you need a boost of antioxidants to truly protect your skin.
