Oxidative Stress. What is it and What Can We Do About It?
Perhaps you’re not familiar with the words “oxidative stress,” but there is a pretty good chance you do know a thing or two about the word stress on its own. At some point in our lives we all experience stress and thus are familiar with the long-term and potentially damaging impacts it can have on our mind, body, and spirit. Just as with any other type of stress, oxidative stress is also something we would love to avoid and skinbetter science® is here to help. So, what exactly is oxidative stress and what can we do about it?
Well, oxidative stress represents the body's inability to balance the production and accumulation of oxygen reactive species (ROS) in cells & tissue, therefore resulting in the inability of our biological system to detoxify them. Oxidative Stress can have a huge number of consequences on our body from inflammation and joint pain to fatigue and brain fog. In terms of your skin health, oxidative stress causes an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants which advances the aging process, causing a loss of collagen and elastin that may result in fine lines, wrinkles, sagging and may even trigger dark spots. This imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants in your body can lead to long-term damage if left untreated. If you are experiencing any of these skin issues, it could be due to oxidative stress.
Our Alto Defense Serum and Solo Hydrating Defense Serum for Men both offer a solution to your oxidative stress woes.
Alto Defense Serum works to improve and protect your skin. Helping to reduce the appearance of redness and uneven skin tone, this scientifically backed solution delivers 19 key antioxidant ingredients. Neutralizing free radicals and using the key ingredients of Vitamin C, Licorice Root Extract, Curcuma Longa Root Extract and Sea Whip Extract, this serum helps create an “antioxidant shield” against oxidative stress. It can be used both at morning and night to promote an even skin tone and enhance your skin’s natural radiance.
Our Solo Hydrating Defense Serum for Men is a clinically proven solution that only needs to be applied once a day! Similarly to Alto Defense, it provides a “new level” of defense against environmental stressors including blue light, UV radiation and pollution-induced oxidative stress. It is both hydrating and calming, improving overall skin tone, texture and appearance. Naturally based ingredients like cocoa, turmeric, olive, coffee and licorice all work together to create a protection specifically designed for male skin. An added benefit is that Solo Hydrating Defense Serum helps to reduce skin surface sebum levels and is suitable for all skin tones and types.
