Free Radicals

  • When your skin is exposed to elements in the natural environment such as oxygen, and the not so natural environment, such as cigarette smoke and pollution, the molecules in those compounds interact with the molecules of your skin. They tend to break down certain molecules and this creates free radicals.
  • According to a report from Rice University, free radicals are ‘atoms or groups of atoms with an odd (unpaired) number of electrons…their chief danger is the from the damage they can do when they react with important cellular components such as DNA or the cell membrane.” One effect of interacting with the DNA of a cell is cancer.
  • The body combats free radicals with what are known as antioxidants.
  • Vitamin D is a powerful antioxidant and CeraVe products with Vitamin D deliver the antioxidants directly to the skin.
