The value of antioxidants

There’s a lot of talk about antioxidants and free radicals these days. So what does it all mean?

Science. Skin is your largest organ – yes, it’s true. And when molecules become unstable, they produce what are called free radicals – objects that can damage your skin cells, leaving your skin to appear wrinkled or inflamed. They can occur naturally or from environmental factors such as smoke, pollution, radiation and they can be fought through a diet high in nutrients like fruits and vegetables and their damage corrected by a product that is high in Vitamin C; one of the most potent antioxidants.

When skin is damaged, it can lose its youthful appearance, making wrinkles or inflammation more visible. In addition to a healthy diet, consider the use of a Vitamin C serum. It can help the skin repair itself and stimulate collagen production, which leads to better elasticity – and a more youthful appearance.

Lord & Lily’s natural skincare line offers a Double C Serum. It contains two forms of the vitamin – Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate and L-Ascorbic Acid. Sound scary? It’s not. They both are forms of Vitamin C: the former is soluble, allowing it to better penetrate the skin The second form comes from a reduced form of Vitamin C. Both are useful in anti-ageing products by boosting Collagen production. The Double C Serum also brightens and clarifies the skin, using another strong compound that can help reverse the visible signs of ageing.
