Beauty tip of the month

 

Free radicals can damage virtually every part of a cell, including the nucleus, where DNA, the body’s unique genetic blueprint, is produced. They can also harm the fats inside cells.

In fact, many scientists believe that free-radical damage is one of the primary causes of aging and age-related diseases such as heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, and arthritis. If they take the extra electron they need from the collagen molecules in our skin, the result is that the collagen becomes damaged. 

When the collagen becomes damaged, the skin gets discolored and stiff and loses elasticity. The end result is that free radicals sap our skin of its youthful appearance.
