What is the definition of antioxydants?

How do they functions? What are they?

Free radicals

Free radicals are unstable compounds mainly formed of oxygen. They are generated during the normal functioning of the body, but their production can be increased by pollution, cigarette smoke or prolonged exposure to the sun, for example. Their chemical structure causes them to damage other atoms by “oxidizing” them. They are however more or less kept in check by the body’s natural antioxidants. However, certain factors can upset this balance. If free radicals exceed the body’s ability to neutralize them, they can contribute to the development of several diseases, including cardiovascular disease, certain types of cancer and other diseases associated with aging.

 

Before understanding the usefulness of antioxidants, we must know the role of free radicals in our body. Free radicals are unstable molecules that our body produces in small quantities through the oxygen we breathe.

 

Free radicals are very reactive. In small quantities, they participate in the fight against viruses and bacteria. In excess, they accelerate the deterioration of cells. Factors like air pollution, tobacco, aging and even sunlight favor their synthesis, this is called “oxidative stress”. As a result, we become vulnerable to many diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, eye disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. The most visible effect of an overproduction of free radicals is the aging of the skin.

 

Antioxidants come into action when the number of free radicals in our body is too high. Their job is to counter, decrease and inhibit the action of free radicals. Thus, the adoption of a diet rich in antioxidants helps to stay healthy and fight against the diseases mentioned above.

The foods richest in antioxidants are:

THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF ANTIOXIDANTS

There are many substances that can act as an antioxidant. The best known antioxidants are:

 

  • Vitamin E

It helps cells to regenerate. It’s a great anti-aging product.

 

  • Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a particularly powerful antioxidant to defend our immune system. It helps fight colds. It is also involved in the formation of collagen (gives elasticity and resistance to the skin).

 

  • Vitamin A

Vitamin A plays a decisive role in vision. It is also essential in bone growth, the conditioning of skin cells and the regulation of the immune system.

 

  • Selenium

Selenium activates the antioxidant enzyme in our body: glutathione peroxidase. Together with vitamin E, it protects cells against premature aging.

 

  • Zinc

Zinc promotes scarring of the skin. It also acts on the endocrine system, respiration, respiration and fitness.

 

  • Polyphenols

Polyphenols are flavonoids capable of protecting our body against cardiovascular disease.

All women whose skin begins to show signs of aging, from 45-50 years of age.

What is Dry Oil? Can it change our every day lives?

Dry oil is an oil that does not leave a greasy feeling on the skin while providing a good skin hydration.

Dry oil is fluid and penetrates quickly.

It nourishes the skin and leaves it feeling sublime.

Its application is pleasant and leaves a satin finish that appeals to women.

It is ideal in summer to enhance your tan! 

In short, it has the same benefits as the classic body oil without the disadvantages (not greasy, does not leave marks on clothes …) This is a beauty product that is quick and easy for everyday usage.

Suitable for all skin types! These are vegetable oils that are bursting with benefits. The most important being their richness in fatty acids.

  • Alpha -linolenic acid or ( Omega 3 Ω 3)
  • The Linoleic or (Omega 6 Ω 6) acid
  • Gamma- Linolenic Acid ( Omega 6 of the family)

Why are these fatty acids are so well absorbed through the skin? It is simply because they are part of the components of our stratum corneum.


Once upon a time  we were able to  bring our skin the components that are necessary through a balanced diet, which will allow it to regenerate.  However, in today’s world, our diet is often unbalanced and does not provide these essential ingredients in sufficient quantity. secondly, we are often stressed, which is felt by our brain, as a state of danger. Our brain then mobilizes all its forces, for our vital organs, such as the brain, our heart and our muscles, it sends them all the molecules they need to escape this danger, and our skin is last served. Which is why it is so often in poor condition. 

Thus, if we nourish our skin with the famous Fatty Acids it lacks, it will absorb rapidly, which is why they are called the Dry Oils. Someone who absorbs oils rich in Omega 3 and 6 every day, such as Sunflower, Grapeseed has a much more balanced skin. If the sum of these three fatty acids exceeds 45%, the mixture will dry to the touch and is very rapidly absorbed.

Morganna’s Majestueuse is no exception for excellent hydrating and brightening to the skin, hair, and nails.

The ideal time to apply: after the shower, massaging gently on dry or damp skin.
