Reactive Oxidative Species (ROS) are unstable atoms that can
cause cell death by "stealing" electrons from our body cells.
This destabilizes not only our DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid),
but proteins, lipids, cell membranes, and other nutrients in our body.
If left unchecked, excess ROS will start wreaking havoc on your
skin cells first, breaking down collagen and lipids. Oxidatively
damaged skin cells result in unflattering skin ageing such as
wrinkling, dark spots, fine lines and loose, saggy skin.
If left unidentified, accumulation of ROS
may even potentially put you at higher
risk of chronic health problems such as
cardiovascular and inflammatory diseases,
cataract, and even certain cancer.
