Vitamin C Protects Skin from Damage
"Free radicals are dangerous because these molecules are chemically unstable, meaning they try to steal electrons from other important structures in your cells!"
Hello, beautiful people!
Daily stress from life, the environment, unhealthy food, pollution…..it all takes a toll on our skin. Even though our skin is very resilient, these small daily stresses eventually cause damage within skin cells, starting a chemical reaction known as oxidation. Oxidation causes the formation of free radicals (funky name, right?), also known as reactive oxygen species (just as funky, right?).
Free radicals are dangerous because these molecules are chemically unstable, meaning they try to steal electrons from other important structures in your cells. In their attempt to become “stable”, they cause damage to vital structures within your skin cells.
So what’s your body’s defense against these little free radicals?? Antioxidants!! Antioxidants literally go and attach to these free radicals, neutralizing them before they cause further damage. Vitamins like Vitamin C are among the numerous antioxidants found in great skincare and healthy food.
