Fight wrinkles with vitamins

Cosmetic and skin care companies are enriching their products with vitamins A, C, and E and the mineral zinc, but why?

According to RealAge.com "Experts suspect that antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E and the minerals zinc and selenium may keep wrinkles at bay by reducing the amount of potentially damaging free radicals produced by skin cells. One study revealed that a supplement that included a combination of these antioxidant vitamins helped protect the skin from aging due to solar UV exposure."
