Why are Antioxidants good for your SKIN?

Like I said many posts before, I am all about hair and skin care, from the INSIDE TO THE OUTSIDE.

What are Antioxidants?

Apparently fruit and vegetables are full of them, and they’re claimed to help prevent disease and delay aging (slower wrinkling lol). If you're like most people, you want smooth, healthy skin, but maybe you don't want to wade through hundreds of chemically laden products to get it. That's where antioxidants can help. Incorporating the right antioxidants into your diet and skin care routine can have a positive effect on your skin.


Antioxidants are nutrients (vitamins and minerals) and enzymes (proteins inside your body) that can help to prevent and repair damage to your body's tissue. Antioxidants do this by slowing or preventing the effect of free radicals, which start oxidation -- a process that causes damage from oxygen that can lead to cell dysfunction. If you've seen a peeled apple turn brown, you've seen oxidation in action. As antioxidants block the effects of free radicals, they end up being oxidized. This is why it's important to constantly replenish your supply of antioxidants.


When it comes to caring for your skin, antioxidants can help to protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun. Unlike sunscreens and moisturizers, antioxidants can protect your skin from the inside out by guarding your cells from damage. Vitamins A, C and E and the mineral selenium are thought to be particularly helpful in skin care. In addition to helping fortify cells against free radicals, vitamins A and C also encourage cell and tissue growth, helping the body to repair itself. This is very helpful to the skin, which is constantly shedding and regrowing cells. For this reason, any antioxidants that protect cells and encourage cell growth could be helpful in an anti-aging regimen, as they may help fight fine lines and wrinkles.

Ladies and gentlemens this post is for both sexes! If you take care your insides, outside will GLOW!

Thanks for reading,

Curls is whole-heartily dedicated to controlling, moisturizing, de-frizzing, and embracing the natural curls of every woman and man out there. Curly hair is bold, natural, and beautiful. If one’s hair is not naturally straight, straight hair must be obtained by applying heat. Whether you blow dry your hair to a straight finish or straighten your hair between two hot plates, or the use of a hot tool styling brush, heat is always the answer whether we like it or not. Most individuals do not know how to properly apply heat to their hair to avoid damage at all costs, including the right temperature to use. Taking a break from straightening and heating your hair to avoid heat overload, let your hair breathe and rest naturally. If you have naturally wavy or s…

**I only received  small samples, not actual bottle sizes of these products and my opinion is my honest opinion** so I tried it once.

I tried the RENEW shampoo. I instantly loved the scent, but I was really impressed with the rich, creamy lather. It felt very luxurious and rinsed very clean. What I liked was that after I rinsed, my hair didn't feel straw-like as it typically does after shampooing and before conditioning. It felt clean and smooth and moisturized.

Apprehensively, upon exit of the shower and gently towel blotting my hair…
