So­lu­tion/ Vi­ta­min C

Shape (Malaysia) - - LOOK GREAT -

Ev­ery time you step out­side, your face is as­saulted by free rad­i­cals such as ni­tric ox­ide, car­bon monox­ide, and ozone. Th­ese tox­ins in­ter­fere with the pro­duc­tion of cel­lu­lar en­ergy, and they dam­age the mi­to­chon­dria, pre­vent­ing cells from func­tion­ing nor­mally. Vi­ta­min C (a.k.a. L-ascor­bic acid) is an an­tiox­i­dant that’s es­pe­cially good at de­ac­ti­vat­ing en­ergy-suck­ing pol­lu­tants and has the added value of be­ing able to in­crease col­la­gen. It’s a win-win: The more en­ergy a cell has, the more col­la­gen vi­ta­min C can help to pro­duce.

Other po­tent free rad­i­cal– fighting an­tiox­i­dants in­clude vi­ta­min E, CoQ10, and even hy­dro­gen. Re­search shows that hy­dro­gen might act like an an­tiox­i­dant, and its mol­e­cules are so tiny that they may be able to pen­e­trate cells more ef­fec­tively. You’ll find them in 1/ Per­ri­cone MD H Ele­men­tal En­ergy 2 Hy­drat­ing Booster Serum (RM447.05 on www.beau­ty­ex­ An­tiox­i­dants like to gang up on free rad­i­cals too, so man­u­fac­tur­ers of­ten add more than one.
