Radically Healthy Skin

Radically Healthy Skin

To break it down for you... our bodies are under constant attack from oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants in our bodies. What happens is the oxygen in the body splits into single atoms with unpaired electrons. But, electrons like to be in pairs so; these atoms (free radicals) look for electrons so they can become a pair. This causes damage to cells leaving it unbalanced, damages proteins and DNA. In turn, damages our skin and causes pre-mature aging.

Since the cell is unbalanced we should aim to rebalance it. This can be done with antioxidant filled products and foods! Antioxidants help prevent free radicals from forming in the skin. Anything that is high in Vitamin C is amazing. Our Age Smart line from Dermalogica has a vitamin complex which is packed full of antioxidants throughout the whole line! Another suggestion would be adding on the Vitamin C treatment to your services. It’s quick and impactful! An Alternative for more of a self care day would be our HydraFacial with Vitamin C!

In terms of food, berries, pomegranates, guava, citrus, dark chocolate, kale, pecans, goji berries, red cabbage and beets are all high in antioxidants! Start snackin' <3

We have many effective products at Eccotique to combat free radical damage! Like I said, the Age Smart line is high in antioxidants and can help decrease the odds of pre-mature aging. The other products I suggest are as follows
