Looking for a facial treatment that has antioxidant protection? Dermoi has you covered with clinically proven facials that prevent free radical damage from destroying your skin.
Keep reading and discover how free radicals damage your skin, why facials help fight against this damage and which facials are clinically proven to give you long term results.
How Free Radicals Damage Your Skin
Free radicals are very damaging to the skin as they are reactive chemicals. Because free radicals lack an electron, they are therefore unstable chemicals. This causes oxidative stress, a process that involves destroying your skin cells and exacerbates aging.
Free radicals cause the following symptoms:
- Saggy skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Age spots
- Uneven skin tone
This is why it is important to be aware of the causes of free radicals. UV rays, smoking, environmental pollutants and heavy metals are sources of free radicals, but they can also be found in poor dieting and constant stress.
So how exactly do you protect your skin from these destructive chemicals?
How Antioxidants Help Protect Your Skin
Antioxidants have strong anti-aging benefits by neutralising the effects of free radicals. Oxidative stress occurs when there are more free radicals than antioxidants in the skin, causing a chemical imbalance.
By boosting the number of antioxidants in your body, you’re able to protect your skin for longer and promote youthful-looking skin.
Here are just some health benefits that antioxidants provide:
- They reduce damage to DNA
- They stimulate collagen production
- They promote an even skin tone
However, if your diet is poor or your skincare routine lacks antioxidant-rich products, you may need facial treatments to correct your skin problems.
Why You Need To Have Facial Treatments
Facial treatments are becoming more and more popular ever since the focus on improving wellness and wellbeing.
Taking care of your skin is much like taking care of your diet or body. Having regular facials keeps your skin in tip-top condition, improving your self-confidence and overall wellbeing.
It is not simply a fad. Facials are the best way of keeping your skin healthy and preventing premature aging by removing dead skin cells.
Here are just some of the benefits of having facial treatments:
- Deep hydration
- Deep exfoliation
- Strong antioxidant protection
- Intense unclogging of pores
