Antioxidants for Healthy Skin

Antioxidants are essential for healthy, young-looking skin. Skin cells are constantly bombarded with free-radical causing contaminants such as infection, pollution. smoke, UV light, poor diet and intense exercise. Overexposure to these can result in uncontrolled oxidation and celluar damage. Damage to the DNA of our cells weakens the cell membrane, alters collagen, fractures elastin and can even cause skin cancer. Antioxidants in the form of vitamins and nutrients play a vital role by neutralising free radicals. In addition to a healthy diet and lifestyle, you can combat free radicals by using scientifically proven skincare both orally and topically. Antioxidants work in synergy which is why good skincare products contain a selection of highly effective nutrients so that they can work together to keep skin cells healthy. Noo Yoo stocks many products containing antioxidants including the following but please do contact us if you need help deciphering which products will give the the best results for you:

Rosacea is a long term inflammatory skin condition that causes reddened skin and a rash usually on the nose and cheeks.
The primary features (you may have one or more of these) are:+ Redness coming and going (flushing) or permanent redness

+ Papules & pustules
+ Spider veins
You may also experience secondary features such as
+ Burning or stinging
+ Thick skin
+ Dry appearance
+ Swelling
+ Red, watery and/or bloodshot eyes
+ symptoms in other areas
+ Bumpy thick skin and large pores especially around the nose

The causes of Rosacea are not fully understood but could be attributed to genetics, immune system problems, the Demodex Mite and environmental factors. There are many triggers that may make Rosacea worse, these include:

+ Heavy exercise
+ High & low temperatures, high winds, humidity
+ Food and drink such as caffeine, alcohol, lactose, gluten, etc
+ Stress/anxiety

Rosacea can be treated and managed but not cured. There are a selection of conventional medicines (topical and oral) and treatments (laser, LED) available from your GP and Noo Yoo can also help by providing the correct skincare plan.
