Seattle summers are known to be gorgeous and the weather certainly brings us outdoors more. As a result, we spend more time in the sun, exposing our skin to ultraviolet light (UVL) and any toxins that could be floating around in the air. Through exposure to UVL and environmental toxins (they’re called oxidants), your skin becomes damaged through a process called oxidation. In order to prevent or repair the damage, your body will need antioxidants (haha - see what science did there?). Fortunately, there are specific nutrients that act as antioxidants to support and maintain skin health.
