Beautiful Skin from the Inside Out

Incorporating antioxidants in your skin care regimen can help protect against and possibly even reverse the accumulated free radical skin damage caused by the sun, pollution, and smoke. All of these things cause your skin to show signs of aging, including wrinkles and discoloration. Here are some of the most effective antioxidants to look for on your product labels and how they work: Alpha-Lipoic Acid is both fat and water soluble, making it able to easily penetrate skin cell membranes to reduce wrinkles and dull skin. Acai act as an astringent, keeping the skin taut and helping to protect the connective tissues. Astaxanthin protects against the damaging effects of sunlight and other environmental stress, and increases skin elasticity and moisture retention. CoQ10 is naturally produced by the body as its main defense against free radicals. Coffee Berry helps fight skin inflammation and is now believed to help reduce hair loss by defeating the hormone DHT. Grape-Seed Extract, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and
Vitamin E are other antioxidants of the same importance.
