These tips about Free Radical and Oxidation are a beginning to a healthier body. Stop aging further by following this advice.

Avoid the Sun!!! Exposure to the sun will age you dramatically. Free Radicals are generated by the sun’s UV rays, thereby breaking down collagen and causing fine lines, wrinkles and enlarged pores.

Of course, we all live in the real world and obviously can’t turn into creatures of the night so use SUNSCREEN. Even if you are walking to the corner store, use sunscreen. Better yet, purchase some moisturizer that contains a minimum of 15 SPF and kill two birds with one stone. You will easily find these products in all price ranges. If you are going to be outdoors for a long time or going to the beach, use a sunscreen of at least 30 and more if you are concerned with your health and appearance and don't forget to reapply as directed.

Drink at least 8 glasses of water per day or 2 litres. Water will cleanse your body and your skin, of course. By the time you become thirsty, your body has already begun dehydrating, “stealing” the moisture from your skin. Drink more water if you are sweating from heat or exercise.

Reduce alcohol intake! Alcohol is terrible for your skin, as well as causing other health problems. Too much alcohol can lead to cirrhosis of the liver, it dehydrates your body and adds pounds. We are not suggesting that you never have a drink ever, just don’t overdo.

Relax. Stress triggers free radicals by speeding oxidation so learn to relax. Take a walk, do some exercise, meditate, take a bath or whatever does it for you. Brew a cup of tea… it’s full of antioxidants.

One of the key elements to anti-aging is to reduce Free Radicals and Oxidation
