As we get older and the regeneration properties of our skin begin to break down, the skin starts to show the first signs of physiological aging –losing moisture, tension, and elasticity. This natural aging process is further accelerated by exposure to the sun (photoaging) and free radicals, which damage skin cells.
How We Age and How to Fight Back!
Each person ages at a unique rate. Aging is a complex and varied process, affecting different people in different ways at different times in their lives.
75% of individuals begin to notice the physical signs of aging, such as wrinkles, between the ages of 20 and 30!
Many of these natural signs of aging can be minimized or even prevented with proper sun protection and various anti-aging products. But which anti-aging products should you use? Which anti-aging ingredients work?
Luckily for you, we at Plantogen® have done all of the research for you, weeding out the best anti-aging ingredients!
Antioxidants: The Secret to Anti-Aging Skincare Revealed!
Antioxidants refer to a group of compounds that fight free radicals.
Free radicals are molecules – formed through a natural process called oxidation – which wreak havoc on living cells, negatively affecting your skin and other vital parts of your body. These free radicals can be caused by any number of factors, from smoke and pesticides to sun exposure.
Antioxidants – like Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Catalase, and Beta Carotene – help neutralize the effects of free radicals, preventing them from doing damage to your skin.
