Opt for an­tiox­i­dants

Hair - - Skin Special -

An­tiox­i­dants are mol­e­cules that neu­tralise free rad­i­cals that de­stroy skin’s col­la­gen and elastin sup­port. With­out col­la­gen and elastin sup­port, the skin loses its firm­ness and tone. To neu­tralise free-rad­i­cal dam­age, opt for mois­turis­ers and creams con­tain­ing vi­ta­mins A, C and E, which are pow­er­ful an­tiox­i­dants. Th­ese vi­ta­mins are listed in skin­care for­mu­la­tions as retinyl palmi­nate, ascor­byl palmi­nate, vitamin C ester, to­co­pherol or to­co­pherol palmi­nate etc. Th­ese vi­ta­mins are also found in nat­u­ral skin­care in­gre­di­ents such as green tea ex­tract, pome­gran­ate, grape­fruit and sun­flower seed oil.
