Skin and Ageing.

Latest News – May 25, 2023

Skin and Ageing.

  Many things cause our skin to age. Some things we some we can influence, others we can do nothing about . The skin has three important layers: the outer epidermis, the middle dermis and the inner subcutaneous fat layer. The epidermis is a thin layer that contains the pigment that colours your skin. The thicker dermis layer contains hair follicles, oil glands and blood vessels. The inner, fatty layer serves as a protective barrier to your organs. As you age, the epidermis gradually thins and pigment levels decrease. This results in thinner, paler skin. You may also notice sunspots from UV exposure, known as solar lentigo.

Skincare tips for a defined jawline & firmer neck.

Latest News – March 23, 2021

Skincare tips for a defined jawline & firmer neck.

 Skincare tips for a defined jawline & firmer neck.  They say you can tell a person’s age by looking at their neck. When you make time to care for your skin with regular treatments and at-home rituals, a crepey neck and jawline is the last thing you want.  There are several factors that cause your jawline and neck to drop or wrinkle. As you age, your skin loses collagen and elastin — two proteins that are responsible for how taught, firm and supple your skin is. Not only is the skin on your neck thinner, it’s also a highly mobile body part that continually bends and twists with the motion of our head. This makes it far more susceptible to wrinkles over time!Genetics have a part to play in how the skin on your neck and jaw develop as you age. This is why it’s important to take action early if you suspect you’re genetically prone to looser skin in this area. Daily activities are also a contributing factor, the most common being looking down at a smartphone or laptop screen (it’s called ‘tech neck’!). Sun damage is another factor, over many years of exposure the skin becomes damaged. This takes time to show visibly on the surface.  It’s common for the neck and full jawline area to be neglected during a daily skincare ritual. Many of us are so focused on facial problem areas that we forget to bring product further down onto the neck area! After all — it’s not just your face that needs TLC. Your neck and jawline can also benefit from cleansing, toning,  moisturising and protection. Combine with in clinic treatments like Radiofrequency for enhanced benefits.  At-home treatments for a firm neck and defined jawline. Whether you’re looking for a dedicated product to bring into your existing at-home skincare ritual or want something to maintain the results of a treatment, you can find a solution in this neck cream recently launched by SkinCeuticals. SkinCeuticals Tripeptide-R Neck Repair . SkinCeuticals Tripeptide-R Neck Repair is an award-winning 0.2% retinol cream that has been specially formulated for the neck area. It uses Tripeptide Concentrate to fortify and firm the skin, while Glaucine Complex reduces collagen denaturing, so you keep more of your natural firmness for longer.

Massage two pumps of product in upward movements towards the jawline for the best effects. Avoid mixing with other retinol or glycolic products in the same area. You can use retinol/ glycolic on your face and use SkinCeuticals Tripeptide-R Neck Repair on your neck and chest area.     Shop now https://www.nualawoulfe.ie/collections/skinceuticals/products/skinceuticals-tripeptide-r-neck-repair

How to cope with that nameless dread, anxiety and stress.

Experts in the field of breathwork say that as many 80% of us have dysfunctional breathing patterns. We come in to the world knowing how to breath, but as we age we appear to learn to breath shallow and short. People who are anxious tend to breathe in their upper lungs (upper chest) with shallow, rapid breaths, instead of breathing into their lower lungs (lower chest). This is one contribution to hyperventilation: shallow, upper lung breathing.

Acne-Rosacea

Latest News – January 11, 2021

Acne-Rosacea

Acne Rosacea -Rosacea is a complex skin condition , with inflammatory triggers, in which environmental factors can interfere negatively or positively in its evolution.   Our skin barrier can be disrupted due to many possible reasons. When it’s damaged the tight junctions between the skin cells are lost. This allows external irritants to get in our skin a lot easier and lead to more water leaving our skin, leading to a dry tight feeling. Damaged skin barrier is characterised by an easily irritated, dehydrated and flaky skin, red skin. Improving the skin barrier function can significantly reduce symptoms, plus reduce inflammation. Up to 30% of rosacea sufferers have a family history of the condition leading researchers to believe it involves as yet unidentified genes, and for some, this is an inherited condition.

Free radicals & Antioxidants.

Latest News – January 02, 2021

Free radicals & Antioxidants.

What are free radicals?Natural chemical reactions in our cells produce unwanted by-products called reactive oxygen species (ROS) – better known as free radicals. These furiously ping about inside cells causing havoc, particularly a type of damage called oxidation. Seen an apple go brown? Smelt oil or nuts that have gone off? That’s oxidation. Unchecked, a disastrous chain reaction would occur in which cell’s most precious elements – their fat rich membranes, their proteins and DNA - would degrade and suffer irreparable harm.There’s also a whole other source of free radicals - the environment. The skin is bombarded by sunlight (UV, infrared, visible light), weather and pollution which trigger the production of free radicals.

What can be done to slow the ageing process?

What can be done to slow the ageing process?

We start losing collagen from the age of 20, starting the creation of lines and wrinkles. Healthy skin reflects overall health, and poor nutrition can contribute to factors that accelerate skin ageing.Environmental factors such as ultraviolet radiation, pollution, nutrition and stress, play a key role in the way we age. Research also suggests that a diet rich in sugar contributes to the loss of collagen in the tissues as the result of a process known as glycation, which can destroy collagen. Smoking kills vitamin C and in turn damages collagen.

The benefits of Hyaluronic acid serums for wrinkles and skin ageing.

Latest News – December 01, 2020

The benefits of Hyaluronic acid serums for wrinkles and skin ageing.

So why do we need to add it to our skin if its already produced by the body? Put simply, hyaluronic acid is a molecule with a short life cycle, so 30-50% of it degrades every 24 hours. We also see a natural decline in our natural hyaluronic acid levels as we age. This starts to decrease in our 20s, accelerating further as we reach our 40s. These two factors combined can contribute to signs of ageing including dryness, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin texture, loss of firmness, and the appearance of loss of facial fullness. Adding hyaluronic acid topically with a serum can help to address these issues by topping up the natural hyaluronic acid that we have lost. HA Intensifier read more

Antioxidants help to protect against Free Radical damage.

Latest News – May 03, 2020

Antioxidants help to protect against Free Radical damage.

Free radicals are unstable molecules that can cause damage to our cells. What makes them unstable is that they are missing electrons from their outer shell. This causes them to search for other atoms or molecules that have these electrons, in order for them to feel whole again and become stable. Due to their reactive nature, free radicals can wreak havoc on your skin and other cells in their quest to find an electron and feel whole again. In order to stabilise themselves, free radicals try to bond to other atoms or molecules.
