About the prevention of wrinkles
1.What we can do
Develop good living and eating habits for the greatest and longest-lasting effects.
Proper exercise and stretching can not only enhance physical fitness, but also delay the formation of wrinkles, especially dynamic wrinkles and gravity wrinkles.
Eat more foods with antioxidant (vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium, carotene, lycopene, coenzyme Q10), such as fried tomatoes (lycopene), blueberries, grapes, soybeans, green tea, etc.
2.What skin care products can do
UV radiation resistance (sun protection)
Protects the skin barrier (moisturizes)
Antioxidant (scavenge excess free radicals)
Promote cell proliferation and metabolism (exfoliation)
1.Representative components of antioxidants: vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium and its compounds, coenzyme Q, lycopene.
2.Antioxidant principle: Remove excess free radicals. One of the functions of free radicals is to induce transcription factors (such as AP-1 and NF-κB) to increase the expression of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), one of which is collagen. Enzyme, it can make collagen gradually lose its original properties, the skin loses its elasticity and appears wrinkled and sagging.
Vitamin C is the most common antioxidant component, which has antioxidant, anti-wrinkle, whitening and anti-inflammatory effects. The body’s intake of vitamin C depends on foreign food, but there is basically no problem of vitamin C deficiency. It is currently believed that oral vitamin C does not increase its content in skin cells, so if you want to work on the skin, you have to start with topical products.
The most well-known of the fat-soluble antioxidants is vitamin E, but the way in which vitamin E exerts a greater effect is to synergize with vitamin C to increase the antioxidant effect.
Like resveratrol, green tea extract, lycopene, curcumin, etc., most of these components exist in plants and have a certain similarity in structure. Relatively speaking, these components are not the main antioxidants . Resveratrol is found in a variety of foods, including grapes, nuts, and red wine. Resveratrol is a powerful antioxidant and has some anti-inflammatory effects.
About the synergistic effect of antioxidants
The synergistic effect is an important factor for antioxidants to work efficiently. The synergistic effect of antioxidants mainly includes five components: vitamin C, vitamin E, glutathione, coenzyme Q10 and lipoic acid.
For example, the so-called free radical means that the atom will have an unpaired electron around it (with a weapon, destroying it everywhere), and when the antioxidant component (such as vitamin E) has the ability to confiscate the weapon of free radicals, but You will also be limited and unable to continue to function. However, vitamin C and coenzyme Q10 can restore vitamin E to an antioxidant state by donating an electron, which is to form a cycle. The interaction of several antioxidants is called a synergistic effect.
