There are two distinct types of aging. Aging caused by the genes we inherit is called intrinsic (internal) aging. The other type of aging is known as extrinsic (external) aging and is caused by environmental factors, such as exposure to the sun’s rays. A number of extrinsic, or external, factors often act together with the normal aging process to prematurely age our skin. Sun exposure, pollution, and environmental irritants cause most premature aging. Other external factors that prematurely age our skin are repetitive facial expressions, gravity, sleeping positions, and smoking.
These factors can create free radicals, which in turn can cause oxidation (a free radical, known as the Reactive Oxygen Species, attacks another molecule and steals an electron from it, setting off a chain reaction of free-radical damage to cells. An example of oxidation is an apple turning brown when it is cut and exposed to oxygen in the air).
What are free radicals?
This birth and death of cells in the body goes on continuously, 24 hours a day. It is a process that is necessary to keep the body healthy. Oxidation is a very natural process that happens during normal cellular functions. Yet there is a downside. While the body metabolizes oxygen very efficiently, 1% or 2% of cells will get damaged in the process and turn into free radicals. “Free radicals” is a term often used to describe damaged cells that can be problematic. They are “free” because they are missing a critical electron, which sends them on a rampage to pair with another molecule. These molecules will attack and kill other cells to acquire their missing electron. However, the problem is, free radicals often injure the cell, damaging the DNA, which creates the seed for disease, damaging proteins (like collagen and elastin) and lipids (such as the ceramides our skin needs).
Antioxidants to the rescue
Antioxidants are proven to interrupt the free-radical damage process. When we are younger, our skin was loaded with naturally – occurring antioxidants. Due to sun exposure and just general aging, our skin loses its ability to produce this natural free-radical screen. Antioxidants protect the healthy cells in our body. By donating an electron to any and all free radicals and binding to them, antioxidants stop the destructive cellular chain reaction. They effectively protect our body and skin from damage.
As part of the free radical damage prevention process, antioxidants are being added to cosmetics to increase the natural antioxidant reservoir of the skin. It is well established that a mixture, or “cocktail”, of antioxidants may enhance the photo protective effects of a cosmetic product. Antioxidants are key to age prevention and their daily use in cosmetic products helps reduce UV-induced aging damage. The exquisite pomegranate extract and vitamin C present in our newest addition, Youth Illuminator, work together to fight the free radicals and protect the skin from premature aging.
After cleansing skin, apply a pea-size amount of Youth Illuminator to skin in an even, thin layer, avoiding the immediate eye area. For best results, use in the morning and night after Nazelie Youth Rejuvenator Serum. When using in the morning, please follow with a sunscreen.
For external use only. Keep away from inside eyes. If contact occurs, rinse thoroughly with water. Discontinue use if irritation occurs.
