Simple Solutions for Stressed Out Skin
The Link Between Stress + Skin.
Stress can hit hard, especially during these unprecedented times. Even when you’re completing a full self-care routine, the effects of everyday stress can take a toll on more than your mind. Stress can also take a toll on your skin complexion. As your largest organ, any type of stress can be seen and manifested within your skin. Stress can increase cortisol levels which in turn increases inflammation and can exacerbate any underlying skin conditions. Our bodies are designed to show and tell us what's going on from the inside out.
How do I know if my skin is stressed?
Signs of a stressed skin barrier, the outermost layer of skin that protects you from environmental stressors, can be: inflammation or redness, dry skin, itching, infection, stinging or burning sensation when applying products, acne, discoloration or just overall dullness. Your skin needs the proper ingredients, nourishment, and hydration to function at an optimal level. Let's talk about a few ways to destress your skin easily, from head to toe.
Be kind to your skin.
Stress materializes in a multitude of ways—and usually it’s seen first and foremost on our skin. Whether it makes you break out, reactive, or red and irritated, we want to remind you to be gentle with yourself. Overworking your skin in the hopes of “fixing” the issue will only further worsen whatever it is you’re going through; don’t pick at any pesky pimples. Don’t dry out or over-exfoliate your complexion with treatments in pursuit of instant gratification. Instead, make balance a priority. Reach for gentle, replenishing skin care instead.
Here are a few amazing and simple products that can help you be kind to your skin as well as soothe the stress away:
