What are antioxidants? Dr. Joel Schlessinger explains.

Antioxidants and free radicals have become popular buzz words in the skin care and beauty industry. Experts have been encouraging the use of antioxidants against damaging free radicals for years but many consumers are still unsure why this ingredient is so important. In this presentation, Dr. Joel Schlessinger explains what antioxidants do and how to incorporate them into your skin care routine.

Free radicals such as smoke, pollution and debris bombard the complexion every day. Antioxidants are molecules that provide protection against these damaging free radicals. By neutralizing free radicals once they hit the complexion, antioxidants prevent damage to the skin.

Antioxidants provide numerous benefits for the skin, reveals Dr. Joel Schlessinger.

Molecules known as free radicals damage cells by breaking down collagen and elastin. Extended exposure to free radicals can lead to fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots and a loss of elasticity. Using a product that provides antioxidant protection can help prevent this damage before it occurs.

Free radicals can also irritate the complexion, causing redness, itchiness and dryness. Antioxidants help minimize this irritation by neutralizing free radicals. Adding a product infused with antioxidants to your routine creates a youthful and more radiant complexion.

Dr. Joel Schlessinger highlights his favorite antioxidant products.

Daily skin care products that are infused with antioxidants easily provide protection against free radicals. Neocutis Journée Bio-Restorative Day Cream with PSP Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB Protection SPF 30+ not only provides free radical protection, but also defends against UV rays.

Another excellent source of antioxidants is SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum. This serum combines powerful peptides and anti-aging ingredients along with antioxidants to diminish and prevent signs of aging. Using this serum daily will minimize fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots while preventing damage.
