Antioxidants affect the skin, how?

Antioxidants are nutrients, or vitamins and minerals, and enzymes (proteins inside your body) that can help to prevent and repair damage to skin tissue. How? 

Antioxidants slow down or prevent damage caused by free radicals that start oxidation -- a process that causes damage from oxygen that can lead to cell dysfunction. As antioxidants block the effects of free radicals, they end up being oxidized. This is why it's important to constantly replenish your supply of antioxidants because they help protect skin from the damaging effects of the sun. It works from the inside out, whereas sunscreens and moisturizers protect from the outside. Look for skin care products with vitamins A, C and E – all excellent for skin care.
