Most of us have heard that antioxidants should be a vital part of our daily diet since they help fight harmful compounds called free radicals which have been linked to increased risk of cancer, heart disease and many other serious illnesses. However, did you know that antioxidants are just as important in helping us maintain a glowing healthy complexion? Eminence Organic Skin Care has developed an incredible line of skin care products that can help your skin by reducing the signs of aging and maintaining its firmness and brightness longer.
How Free Radicals Harm Our Skin
Environmental pollutants along with the aging process damage our skin cells by causing atoms to split and releasing electrons that are trying to find other electrons to pair with. The molecules that are trying to find the electrons to maintain their stability are called “free radicals” and the process of finding new electrons is called “oxidation.” Basically, oxidation harms other cells by interfering with cells’ DNA, enzymes and proteins and by accelerating the aging process and damaging healthy cells.
How Antioxidants Help Fight Free Radicals and Protect Our Skin
Antioxidants attack or neutralize free radicals. They provide these molecules with the electrons they are seeking so in effect this prevents free radicals from destroying other cells in our body.
By applying antioxidants directly to your skin, the skin cells absorb the antioxidants and protect the skin from potential damage. For example, the oxidative process caused by free radicals results in wrinkles, loose skin and other forms of skin damage related to inflammation. However, by making antioxidants a part of your skin care routine you will be able to reduce these effects and maintain a youthful and bright complexion much longer.
Rich Sources of Antioxidants
Sources rich in antioxidants include vitamins C and E, deeply colored fruits, berries, leafy greens, coffee, tea and mushrooms. According to Healthline some of the twelve healthy foods high in antioxidants are dark chocolate, berries (blueberries/strawberries/raspberries/goji berries), kale and spinach. Some of these sources are used by Eminence Organics to develop their antioxidant skin care products that help protect against free radicals and slow down the ageing process.

Last Word About Antioxidants & Your Skin Care Routine
Antioxidants are an effective way to reinforce your skin care routine with extremely beneficial ingredients that will slowdown the effects of aging and the abuse of our skin by stress, pollution and an inadequate diet. It’s important to note that the protective effects of antioxidants against premature aging will become noticeable with long term use. Therefore you should not expect overnight transformations. The Eminence Organic Skin Care products will help your skin look brighter and feel smooth. What’s more, don’t forget that your skin care routine, especially during spring and summer, must include sun care products to protect you against the harmful effects of UV rays.
You may have noticed that all of Eminence Organics antioxidant skin care oils and serums are in opaque and airtight or air-restrictive bottles. This is due to the fact that antioxidants break down when exposed to light and air.
