Beauty From Within

 

As it turns out, the old saying, “you’re only as beautiful as your insides” is true. Studies have shown that taking oral antioxidant supplements benefit you more than rubbing antioxidant-laden creams and lotions on your face. While antioxidants aren’t entirely a new discovery—most people know that antioxidants fight against free-radicals, environmental pollutions, etc—the fact that ingesting antioxidants to beautify your outward appearance is something of a buzz.

In addition to aesthetic appeal, did you know that antioxidants can even protect against sunburn? Taking oral antioxidants daily provides a sort of “natural” sunscreen for up to 20 minutes. This means no more greasy, pasty white sunscreen to worry about. (Though if you’re going to be out longer than 20 minutes, it’s best to slather up.)
