Free Radical Damage
Free radicals are like little scavengers circulating throughout our bodies, stealing their sustenance from our healthy tissues and affecting virtually every bodily system. Technically, free radicals are highly-reactive, short-lived molecules that, by their very nature, cause damage to every molecule they come into contact with-including skin, the body's largest organ, wreaking havoc on vital cellular structures and speeding the ageing process.
In recent years, scientific research has yielded a great deal of information regarding the role free radicals play in either causing or accelerating a number of diseases, from cancer to heart disease to arthritis, and many others. The key opponents to free radicals are antioxidants, molecular compounds that neutralise free radicals, preventing further damage. While the body produces its own antioxidants, supplementing with antioxidants-especially on the skin-has been proven to successfully counteract free radicals. Thus, equipping your skin with the right amount of antioxidants will have a profound effect on the health and youthful appearance of your skin.
However, there is a catch-not every body produces the optimal amount of antioxidants. The FutureSkin DNA Analysis will indicate key genetic factors with regard to your own body's antioxidant capabilities. You can then use this information to find the most effective products designed to provide the necessary antioxidant protection for your skin, thus empowering you to achieve peak skin health and vitality.
