Did you know that the sun and environmental toxins aren’t the only sources of free radicals?
When you eat sugary foods like brownies, cupcakes and ice cream, your body goes through a process called ‘Glycation.’ During this process, sugar molecules bind to proteins and produce free radicals, much like those caused by getting too much sun exposure or from pollution or cigarette smoking. In turn, this causes Collagen and Elastin to break down, leading to premature aging and wrinkles—and there’s nothing sweet about that.
To fight against unnecessary free radicals, avoid eating unhealthy sugars from baked goods, and instead opt for natural fruits to curb your craving. To combat against free radicals in your skincare regimen, use an antioxidant product like our Vitamin C Serum for added protection.
