why protect with antioxidants

Premature skin ageing is influenced by both intrinsic and extrinsic factors which accumulate over a period of time leading to changes in skin structure, function and appearance. Intrinsic ageing (also known as biological ageing) is caused by factors that are mostly out of our control such as genetics, DNA and metabolism.

Extrinsic ageing (also known as environmental ageing) is caused by external factors. It has been reported that over 80% of premature skin ageing is attributed to environmental aggressors that we can control such as UV radiation, smoking, air pollution, diet, stress and sleep deprivation.

Damage to skin from all types of extrinsic ageing has a common cause known as oxidative stress. Oxidative stress refers to the damage caused to the skin by highly reactive, unstable oxygen based molecules called ‘free radicals’.

Free radicals cause damage to our skin cells. This damage accumulates and expresses itself visibly as signs of ageing including fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, redness and loss of skin elasticity.

Antioxidants can provide added defence against oxidative stress and work by helping to reduce toxic free radicals before damage occurs. Therefore, antioxidants can provide protection from our environment that sunscreens cannot. For this reason, it is imperitive that we use both broad spectrum sunscreens and antioxidants when protecting against premature skin ageing.
