What are antioxidants that everyone keeps talking about? There seems to be a general consensus that they are good for your skin but just how do they work and what do they do?
In simple terms, oxygen (aka oxidation) has a damaging and ageing effect on the body and skin cells. An antioxidant is a substance such as vitamin C, vitamin E, beta carotene or polyphenol that removes potentially damaging oxidizing agents in a living organism. Antioxidants protect the body and skin cells from oxidation. In more technical terms an antioxidant is related to free radicals.

Although there are steps you can take to fight against the ageing effect of toxic pollution.
