What is Antioxidant?

Our body produces antioxidants, enzymes that protect it from free radical damage. Free radicals are responsible for premature signs of skin aging. Increased amounts of free radicals start a dangerous chain reaction of damage to cellular DNA, skin proteins and lipids. The key antioxidant enzymes our body produces are catalase and superoxide dismutase. These enzymes protect cells in the skin (as well as other tissues) from free radical damage, and are responsible for converting them into less harmful products. Those with genetic variations in the above enzymes have reduced protection from the harmful effects of superoxide radicals and hydrogen peroxide. This variation makes their skin cells more vulnerable to free radical damage.

Suggested Lifestyle Changes

Dietary Recommendations:

  1. Consume foods high in antioxidants such as fruits, berries, vegetables, spices, coffee and tea as it can eliminate free radicals and prevent oxidative damage.
  2. Antioxidants such as carotenoids, tocophenols and flavonoids, as well as vitamins (A, C, D and E), essential omega-3-fatty acids, some proteins and lactobacilli could help in promoting skin health.

Lifestyle Recommendations:

  1. Regular exercise and physical activity can increase antioxidant capacity.
  2. Avoid tobacco smoking as studies have found that smoking may reduce the the resistance against free radicals.
