Aging is a natural process of life. However, retailers today are publicizing that their products can reduce or even eliminate the signs of aging. Many cosmetic companies advertise age-defying makeup, which they claim will erase the wrinkles on the skin and produce a newer, fresher look.
The most recent age-defying product on the market is antioxidants. Claiming that their products will diminish the signs of aging, companies sell volumes of antioxidants to consumers. Their claims offer the controversial questions: Can a drug stop the effects of aging? How many capsules does it take to eliminate facial wrinkles? Are these pills simply placebos?
Antioxidants are chemicals that protect cells by neutralizing external forces (such as damage from the sun, pollution, wind, and temperature) and internal factors (for example, emotions, metabolism, and the presence of excess oxygen), it is common to find in Vitamins A, C, E, and beta carotene. These special chemicals assist in skin repair and the strengthening of blood vessels. Antioxidants are necessary because they combat free radicals which would start a chain reaction under the skin's surface, and outlined below is the process of destruction.

The skin does have it's own antioxidant system to help to counteract these free radicals, however over time the free radicals can continue to damage cells and their DNA. In addition, your body's antioxidants decrease with age, leaving the free radicals unchecked, and leaving your cells, cell membranes and DNA more vulnerable to damage. This results in loss of firmness, radiance, elasticity and can contribute over time to aging of the skin.
Consuming food and supplement that contained antioxidant such as carrots, oranges, and other bright colored fruits, and also green vegetable can help your skin looks healthier. Despite of the common believe, antioxidants has no yet clinically approved to have a role in anti aging process. But it does help prevent more damages due to fore mention internal and external factors.

As a model, I really care about my face. That's why I always have anti oxidants and ceramide cream in my bag. I do really need this. My parent also have this for their wrinkle.
