If you’ve never heard of this treatment, keep on reading to discover what this facial entails and why it benefits your skin.
Why Free Radicals Are Dangerous to Skin Health
You may think that aging is unstoppable. After all, you’re only human. That’s only true for the natural aging process. External factors however, like UV radiation, environmental toxins and free radicals can be stopped from causing signs of premature aging.
Free radicals are unstable molecules that cause DNA damage to living cells, ultimately damaging your skin. This is because they are missing an electron, and are seeking out another electron to steal to help balance themselves.
When highly reactive free radicals steal electrons from your skin, they cause damaging effects, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
If you’re living or working near a city, you’re more likely to encounter free radicals. They come from a variety of sources, including, cigarette smoke, sun exposure, pollution and toxins.
For that reason, limiting your exposure to free radicals may not always be possible, which is why the best way to counteract them is with antioxidants.
What Are the Skin Benefits of Antioxidants?
Although free radicals cause serious damage to your skin, there is a way to fight against them. Antioxidants are the nemesis of free radicals. By donating an electron, antioxidants stabilise free radicals and ultimately protect your cells from damage.
As a result, antioxidants helps to:
- Protect you against UV radiation damage
- Brighten your skin
- Stimulate collagen production
- Calm down inflammation
Some antioxidants are naturally found in the body, but there are also essential antioxidants that can only be found in foods, supplements and skincare products.
Beta-carotene, vitamin C and E are antioxidants that are mainly found in foods. In contrast, alpha-lipoic acid, glutathione and superoxide dismutase are naturally produced in the body.
However, as you age, your antioxidant levels decrease. As a result, your skin is more prone to free radical damage. That’s why facial treatments are a brilliant way to keep your skin in tip-top condition so that you can achieve an instant glow.
Why Superoxide Dismutase Helps Your Skin
Antioxidants help neutralise the effects of free radicals. By outnumbering the number of free radicals in the body, antioxidants decrease your oxidative stress levels. This helps to reduce signs of aging and improve your overall skin health.
With that in mind, superoxide dismutase (SOD) is an antioxidant enzyme that acts as the first line of defence against oxidative damage to your skin.
Moreover, it helps reduce the effects of superoxide radical, a very destructive free radical that inflicts damage to your skin cells, DNA and amino acids.
SOD breaks down the free radical by converting it into hydrogen peroxide and oxygen, minimising the effects of superoxide and while promoting young and glowy skin.
Superoxide dismutase helps to:
- Boost hydration
- Reduce sagging
- Remove dullness
Furthermore, superoxide dismutase also helps maintain your collagen and elastin levels, making it an incredible anti-aging enzyme that keeps your cells healthy.
