Ageing and Free Radical Attack

Science has recently proved that the ageing of our cells, including our skin is directly influenced by environmental factors that we find in pollution, UV rays of the sun, cigarette smoke, alcohol drinking, drugs, dietary fat, and stress. These factors form a group of highly volatile and unstable substances called 'free radicals'. 

Because free radicals contain one or more unpaired electrons in their outer orbit they are highly aggressive in their attempt to link up with other electrons. In so doing they can attack and damage any healthy tissue in the body. 

Nearly all disease processes related to ageing, including ageing of the skin, are due to free radical attack at the cellular level. Unfortunately, our bodies are bombarded daily with free radicals from exposure to a toxic environment and our general lifestyle habits. 

Changes in skin specifically? Wrinkles, lines, loss of elasticity, resiliency, age spots and poor skin tone.

Ageing is compounded by free radical attack directly within the skin structure itself. This reaction occurs in two ways. First is the attack of free radicals to the skin fibroblasts. Fibroblasts secrete the protein fibers collagen and elastin that provide skin with its strength, suppleness and elasticity. Their role is not only to secrete these fibers but also to degrade and replace them when they are damaged. A visible ageing effect in the skin is caused by a progressive loss in the total amount of collagen and elastin. This is caused largely by free radical attacks on the fibroblast cells.

The second damaging effect on the skin due to free radical attack is the cross-linkage of connective tissue fibers (collagen and elastin.) 

This is a process whereby free radicals bond excessively with the long fibrous protein strands causing collagen to tighten and shrink. The cells become strangled constricting the tiny capillaries and choking off the blood supply which typically carries oxygen, moisture and nourishment to the tissues which are necessary to maintain a youthful appearance. 

The external result is dry, leathery skin, wrinkles, and poor skin tone. The internal result is stiff joints and cartilage, loss of ability of the arteries to expand and contract, and gradual body deterioration. In addition, toxic waste products accumulate in the cells and tissues contributing further to the body's demise and noticeable skin problems.
