Anti-oxidants are naturally occurring substances in our bodies. They minimize damage and keep body cells healthy. Anti-oxidants serve to protect skin tissue against harm that can be caused by compounds called free radicals. Free radicals are capable of causing damage to body tissue and increase the risk of disease as well as hasten the pace of aging.

Although the body absorbs anti-oxidants through a range of foods and drink, it can also be supplemented with topical vitamins as the skin is the last bodily organ to benefit from anti-oxidant intake. Anti-oxidant serums protect against damage to skin tissue resulting from climate and environmental factors and also assist in the healing of damaged skin whilst holding back the appearance of wrinkles and other ageing signs.
