Natural wrinkle creams and two homemade recipes

We know, from the information we constantly receive, that antioxidants are essential for the health of the cells and tissues of our body or for delaying the signs of skin aging. But what are they and what are they for? How can we take advantage of them?

Antioxidants are natural substances synthesized by plants to defend themselves and are present in fruits, leaves, branches and even roots. Among the most common antioxidants are vitamins A, C, and E, beta-carotenes, polyphenols, lycopene, lutein, and selenium. All have a lesser or greater degree of protective and preventive action, although the most powerful antioxidant is found in blueberries and is a polyphenol called pterostilbene.

FROM DIRECT FOOD TO YOUR SKIN

Antioxidants preserve and activate the organoleptic properties of food and these, when ingested, protect our cells. They have anti-inflammatory properties, help regulate blood glucose, prevent myocardial infarction, stroke, neurodegenerative processes, strengthen immunity and even have anti-cancer properties. They are also essential in anti-aging or anti-aging cosmetics, as they fight free radicals that accelerate oxidation and aging of the skin.

Cosmetic antioxidants are, in addition to vitamins E and C and coenzyme Q10, any substance that contains them and can generate a protective, repairing or preventive action against the signs of aging, such as mallow extract or red vine extract, rich in resveratrol.

OILS FOR YOUTHFUL SKIN

Vegetable oils rich in essential fatty acids are highly antioxidant and act as an anti-aging agent. Among these wonderful oils we find the oil of raspberry seeds, blueberries, rice, abbacy, borage, hemp, safflower, sea buckthorn, wheat germ, pomegranate, black currant, kiwi, flax, tomato seed, perilla, prickly pear, butter mango and rosehip. With them you can make repairing and preventive serums, creams, lotions and anti-age eye contour.
