What are free radicals? Infrared radiation damages your skin by producing free radicals. "A free radical is an unstable oxygen molecule with an uneven number of electrons," explains Miami dermatologist Leslie Baumann, MD. "These free radicals are looking to steal electrons from your cells in order to complete themselves, and the result is damage to the cells in the form of inflammation, pigmentation, and even DNA damage." Basically, free radicals are the enemy -- the more they accumulate in our skin, the more they damage our healthy cells, and the faster we age. Antioxidants are the best-known way to neutralize those free radicals before they start attacking our healthy cells.
