Can Your Skin Be Stressed?

Yes it’s not all in your head: Anxiety can show up in your face. When you’re stressed, your levels of the hormones cortisol and adrenaline skyrocket. It turns out that chronic stress—consistently heightened levels for a few weeks or months—can cause an increase in lines as well as decreased skin elasticity (which can prompt sagging).  But not to worry: There are easy solutions for both inside and out.


Prioritize Sleep   

My research advised getting seven and a half to eight hours of sleep each night is crucial for skin and well-being. Stress can wreck havoc on your entire body, including your skin. Remember stress can impact your sleep, but lack of sleep can also increase your stress levels, therefore it is vital that you manage this effectively to prevent it from spiraling out of control.

Relax Your Muscles

Any time you are tense, try a technique called progressive muscle relaxation, which involves clenching and relaxing muscle groups one at a time for four to 10 seconds each. Start with your feet and work your way up breathing softly and deeply as you go. It shifts the focus away from what’s stressing you out. This method is especially effective in helping settle your body and mind before bed!

Anew Vitamin C Warming Peel. I love this stuff! It instantly restores dull, tired skin to its natural radiance. The warming sensation when activated with water,  opens  pores to remove impurities. The gentle dual exfoliator combines vitamin C flakes plus seeds that buff skin as you massage it on.

Regardless of how old you are or what your lifestyle is, it’s important to make a conscious effort to look after your skin. Make sure you have a skin care regime that helps you and your skin distress.
