The truth about aging

The skin, our largest organ, secretes small amounts of sebum. This oily substance contains antioxidants and forms the protective layer of our skin. Losing moisture is one of the reasons skin ages faster. Combray protects the skin against free radical damage and helps to maintain the skin’s natural defense mechanism and prevents the skin from aging.

Antioxidants are very important for maintaining a healthy and beautiful looking skin. Sunlight, age, pollution and inflammatory conditions such as acne, eczema, rosacea and psoriasis are known to increase the levels of oxidative stress in the skin, which antioxidants protect against.

Scientifically, there is little doubt that antioxidants play a significant role in the health of your skin. Aging consists of two types: intrinsic and extrinsic aging. Intrinsic aging is the natural process of aging that may be impossible to prevent. Extrinsic aging is caused by external factors, such as sunlight, smoke, and pollution and these effects can be controlled to a certain extent. Extrinsically aged skin and lower amounts of antioxidants are clearly correlated and it has been demonstrated that antioxidants protect against short and long term photoaging (sun damage). There is also evidence that antioxidants may improve, as opposed to just prevent, wrinkles and other signs of damage.
