The active ingredient in Clinisept+ is sodium hypochlorite. A patent pending chemical process is used to trigger a chemical reaction which converts the hypochlorite into an ultra-pure, stabilised hypochlorous solution. In fact, Clinisept+ has been proven to contain more than 90% pure hypochlorous – far exceeding the purity of any competitor product claiming to contain hypochlorous.
Hypochlorous is the same chemistry that powers the human immune system. It is produced by the white blood cells in the body to combat infection and is widely acknowledged as the most effective disinfection agent known, owing to its ability to kill bacteria, viruses, fungi and spores.
Sleep is a crucial component of overall health and wellness, and it has a significant impact on the health and appearance of your skin. When you sleep, your body is able to repair and regenerate itself, including the skin cells on your face and body.
During sleep, your body increases blood flow to the skin, which helps to nourish and oxygenate the cells. This can help to reduce inflammation, remove damaged cells, and improve the overall health of your skin. In addition, the body produces more collagen, a protein that helps to keep the skin looking smooth and youthful, during sleep. This is due to the fact that, while you were sleeping is the prime time that growth, hormone and other repairative hormones are released into circulation. If you are not getting adequate sleep, your body will not be producing and utilising these hormones as effectively as it should.
We are used to hearing about sun exposure and the damage that it can do to your skin. From skin cancer to sun related ageing , it can take its toll on the body. However, it is important to keep in mind that not all sun exposure is bad and, if done in moderation, can be good for you and your body.
However, before we get into the benefits, we should note that moderation is key here. Everyone should still take the proper precautions to protect themselves from Ultraviolet radiation, UV whenever they go outside and are at risk of being exposed to higher-than-safe radiation levels from the sun.
When you are in a stressful situation, your body may react by going into “fight or flight “ mode, pumping out stress hormones, raising blood pressure and pulse, and redirecting blood away from your organs towards your legs and arms to prepare the body for “flight” . This would be important if you needed to get away from a wild animal, but today we are less likely to find ourselves needing to get away from a wild animal.
Normally for a healthy person, the body bounces back to normal once the stressful times are over . Many people get stuck in fight of flight mode. This is especially true when people find themselves dealing with chronic health conditions or a family or work related situation that they cannot handle. The chronic stressors become a self perpetuating vicious cycle . This situation can then lead to anxiety . People sometimes try and reduce the anxiety by avoiding the feared situation altogether.
Antioxidants help to prevent this cascade, as they work to quench the damage. Antioxidants are naturally found in your skin, but they're constantly being used up. This is why the antioxidants in your food are so important: they provide a constant, renewable source of antioxidants to protect your skin. The fact that skin cancer is on the increase may allow us to question the quality of the food we eat today by comparison to the quality of food our ancestors eat .
What Are Free Radicals?
If you keep up with all things skin care, you have likely heard at least once or twice about how free radicals are bad news for your complexion. But are you aware of why these molecules are so damaging to your body’s largest organ, and what they are capable of? If not, you will want to keep reading.
What Are Free Radicals?
Before getting into just how much havoc free radicals can wreak on your skin, we must first explain what they are. Free radicals are highly unstable molecules that are formed by normal bodily functions — like breathing, for instance — as well as environmental aggressors, such as UV rays, smoke, and pollution. These unstable compounds look to pair with a missing electron. In doing so, they can latch onto your skin, create a negative chain reaction on your skin’s surface and induce damage to cells. Free radicals have extra energy in them that can damage neighbouring skin cells and collagen.

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is an advanced treatment technology that utilizes the growth factors present in your own blood to regenerate your skin.Platelet Rich Plasma is a natural occurring component of your own blood. PRP encourages skin rejuvenation by stimulating the growth of your own collagen and improving blood supply to the tissue, leading to healthier, younger looking skin. This treatment helps both the tone and texture of skin, while easing the appearance of photo damaged and aging skin.
External factors account for approximately 90% of perceived skin ageing – including wrinkles, roughness, mottled pigmentation (age spots) and loss of elasticity. These external factors include, but are not limited to, smoking, UV light, stress, environment and pollution. These external factors are called free radicals. Free radicals are another contributing factor of skin ageing.These are parts of molecules (e.g. oxygen molecules) that are found in the body. As a result of external factors, like ultraviolet radiation, nicotine or unhealthy food, the free radicals become prone to react. This means that they are constantly looking for other chemical substances to bond with. Hence, they attack the collagen fibres, cellular membrane and lipid layer of the skin. Free radicals change the inherited properties stored in the cell nucleus, so that the quality of newly formed skin cells deteriorates. Read More
