Stress & Skin

Stress & Anxiety When we find ourselves in stressful situations, our bodies release a cascade of hormones, starting with adrenaline. As adrenaline surges around our body, it increases our heart rate and directs blood to our brains and muscles. This helps us to make split second decisions about whether to fight or run from the cause of the stress. Quickly after, cortisol is released and has the effect of raising blood sugar levels to help sustain our reactions. window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS = window.SH

By TOP on 18th Mar 2021

Do I need antioxidants on my skin? An antioxidant serum won’t magically change the look of your skin, but your skin will thank you for applying one. Antioxidants are key ingredients in preventing skin ageing, not in treating damage that is already done.

Psoriasis What is psoriasis? Most of us make and replace our skin cells every three to four weeks, but if we have psoriasis, we do so every three to seven days. This rapid overproduction of skin cells leads to the build-up of darker patches forming on darker skin tones and red, flaky, crusty patches developing on Caucasian skin caused by the extra blood flowing to the skin to keep up with skin cell growth.` These patches are often overlain with silvery scales and can spring up on any part of our body, including our hands and feet, in the creases o

Menopause Although the word menopause means ‘final period’ and occurs when as women, we reach the end of our natural reproductive lives, in reality this, the menopause does not happen overnight. Rather, it is a gradual process, which in the UK, usually begins in our later 40’s and concludes at the age of around 51.

By TOP on 24th Feb 2021

How to Handle Hay Fever The beauty of new plants stirring into life signals the arrival of spring. While for many this is a time to enjoy the colours and scents blooming all about, for others the pollen that accompanies this blossoming marks weeks and sometimes months of watering eyes and swollen eyelids; stuffy, runny noses, coughing and sneezing.
