What the fudge are antioxidants and why do I need them in my beauty regime?
Antioxidants have been a staple in the beauty world for some time, but what are they and how do you get a piece of the pie?
They’re fighters! Antioxidants fight against free radicals which are compounds that can cause harm if their levels become too high in your body. Free radicals occur in everyday life, to name a few sources; pollution, smoke, alcohol, and fatty acids. Antioxidants have shown they can play a part in boosting immunity, protecting against disease including cancer & heart disease to name a few.
And these are just the benefits for your insides; through your beauty choices they can correct signs of ageing, help prevent sunburn, brighten & repair skin.
How do I get me some?
