Biotech Antioxidants: Your Summer Skin Saviours

As the sun shines and we enjoy the summer season, it's essential to protect our skin from ageing caused by free radical damage, also known as oxidative stress. Biotech antioxidants can be your best allies in maintaining youthful and healthy-looking skin this summer.

Understanding Free Radicals

Free radicals are highly reactive molecules with unpaired electrons. To stabilise themselves, they snatch electrons from other molecules, creating a chain reaction that damages the structure and function of those molecules. These pesky free radicals are not only produced within our bodies but are also present in the environment due to sunlight, pollution, smoke, and various chemical processes.

When free radicals run rampant, they attack our skin's cells, proteins, DNA, and lipids, leading to wrinkles, fine lines, uneven skin tone, pigmentation, and reduced elasticity. They trigger inflammation and harmful pathways in the skin, such as collagen breakdown, resulting in premature ageing.

The Power of Antioxidants

Antioxidants are the superhero ingredients that neutralise free radicals and prevent them from causing havoc in our skin. They have an extra electron to spare, which they willingly give to free radicals, halting the chain reaction. Think of antioxidants as sacrificial shields that protect your skin from damage.

While our skin naturally contains some antioxidants, factors like sun exposure and environmental pollutants can deplete their levels. This is where topical antioxidants in skincare products come to the rescue. By applying antioxidants before encountering free radicals (like before heading into the sun), you give them time to intercept and neutralise the harmful molecules, safeguarding your skin from potential damage.
