Anti-Wrinkle Skin Care by Dr. TomaselloAn anti wrinkle skin care ingredient is one that helps reverse the aging process. Hence, these anti-aging ingredients are, in effect, anti wrinkle agents. Let’s face it (no pun intended), when people buy skin care products, the most common reasons are to help their skin to look clearer and younger. Anti wrinkle skin care and anti-aging also means preventing wrinkles from showing up in the first place.
Free Radicals are atoms or groups of atoms with an odd (unpaired) number of electrons. This happens when oxygen interacts with certain molecules causing oxidation. Once formed these highly reactive radicals can start a chain reaction, like dominoes. The reactive oxygen will go around seeking another electron. In its search it causes chaos and damage. It attacks the cells around it; cell proteins, membranes, the outside of the cell (cytoskeleton), the inside of the cell, even the cell’s DNA is at risk. Free radicals form in your skin in response to a multitude of environmental factors including UV rays, heat, cold, smoking, pollution, dust, dietary factors, and allergens to name a few. Antioxidants are anti wrinkle vitamins. They neutralize free radicals AND stimulate collagen production, repair cells and fade redness. Our skin makes its own antioxidants and tries desperately to keep up and clear away all the free radicals but commonly falls short of neutralizing them. There are countless products available that contain antioxidants. What is important to remember is certain ingredients are excellent antioxidants. These products are anti wrinkle and are of paramount importance in anti-aging skin care. Look for them in your skin care products and don’t just trust a label that says “anti-oxidant.” These ingredients prevent damage now resulting in more beautiful skin today … and tomorrow.
