Sleep and how it impacts your skin ?

Sleep and how it impacts your skin ?

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.

Are you in a constant cycle of “flight or fight”?

Latest News – September 08, 2023

Are you in a constant cycle of “flight or fight”?

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 .

SkinCeuticals - C E Ferulic 30ml

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.

Scented Candles and Diffusers Safety.

Latest News – July 23, 2023

Scented Candles and Diffusers Safety.

Scented Candles and Diffusers Safety.     Do not allow diffuser oil to spill or drip on to fabric, or painted surfaces- wood - work top surfaces- floors. Staining or damage may occur. Place diffuser bottle on a coaster. Do not swallow diffuser oil liquid. Avoid liquid contact with eyes or skin. Rinse thoroughly with fresh water if it occurs. If you are asthmatic or suffer with COPD scented candles and diffusers may not be for you.   How do you use scented candles safely? When burning candles, follow these safety rules: Keep burning candles within sight. Read and follow the manufacturer's use and safety instructions. Only use candles in a well-ventilated room. Don't burn a candle all the way to the bottom of the container. Scent is tied to memory, and aromatherapy has been proven to affect mood, so it’s no surprise that a candle with a certain smell can create a sense of nostalgia and promote relaxation. Unfortunately, any time you use an open flame or heat source for an extended period, you put your safety at risk. Follow these tips to make sure the memories related to your favourite smells always stay good.   Burn time. It’s true that scents can be relaxing, but it’s important to be aware and alert when burning candles. One hour of burning is sufficient to allow a pleasant lingering scent. The maximum burn time is four hours. Let the candle come to room temperature before relighting. If you’re using candles to create ambiance or to help you relax or to sleep, it’s wise to consider a safer alternative, like flameless candles or scented oil diffusers. Or meet both needs at once by using a wall plug-in air freshener that includes a built-in nightlight. Place candle on a coaster to protect the surfaces from heat damage.

Therefore, if we want to reap the brightening benefits of nicotinamide, it needs to be ingested via supplement or applied topically to the skin.
