Antioxidants keep us balanced

 

The word antioxidant gets thrown around a lot, but what does it actually mean?  Antioxidants are found in some of our favorite foods like tea, chocolate and red-wine. They can also be found in botanical cosmetic ingredients: ingredients extracted directly from plants. Antioxidants help prevent cell-damage caused by oxidants: free radicals found in our environment or produced by our own bodies.  While those produced by our bodies are necessary to stave off sickness, an overabundance of oxidants can lead to serious diseases, like cancer and heart disease. Antioxidants rid our bodies of excess oxidants, and help keep us balanced.

 

Antioxidants brighten skin and slow aging 

 

When applied to the skin, antioxidants like vitamin C and E are absorbed by the top layer and can prevent cell damage done by free-radicals which cause skin dullness, skin irritations or contribute to signs of aging. By destroying free radicals that break down collagen proteins, antioxidants aid collagen production which maintains the elasticity of the skin, making it appear younthful.

 

Barefoot Naturals ingredients contain many powerful antioxidants, including beta carotene, d-limonene, green tea (protects skin from environmental damage), vitamin E (protects skin from sun and other elements), and vitamin C (diminishes wrinkles and brightens skin). Do your skin a solid and try botanical cosmetics, packed with antioxidants that will keep you glowing.
