Ageing is an inevitable part of life and learning to grow old gracefully and embrace the changes it brings, will lead to contentment and feeling at peace with ourselves. At the same time, taking the best possible care of our health and our skin can help minimise the visible signs of ageing. This way, we can continue to look as good on the outside as we feel inside.
Free radicals are molecules which play a key role in the ageing process and the development of many age-related diseases. They are continually being produced as a result of normal, everyday bodily processes as well as external factors such as UV radiation, pollution, stress, smoking and poor diet. These molecules are unstable by nature, which means if left unchecked, they can cause damage to our cells and tissues, including those of the skin.
