Can a Calm Mind Help You Have Better Skin?
Posted on 01 March 2021
We know that living our life in a stressed-out state isn’t good for us. Our bodies react within reason to stress but over the long haul, built up stress can do a lot of damage. One of the first places you might notice its negative effects is in the condition of your skin, so we’re here to help find ways to deal with your stress :)
How Cortisol Affects Your Skin
When you experience stress, cortisol levels in your body increase. For those who have pre-existing skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis, the rise in hormone levels triggers flare-ups or makes the problem worse. Even if you don’t have a skin problem, cortisol still does take a toll on your skin because it leads to an overproduction of oil that results in clogged-up pores and acne.
What You Can Do About Stress and Your Skin
You might not be able to do anything about the fast-paced life you live, but you still have the power to lower your stress and improve your skin’s condition. No matter how busy you are, carving out time for calming activities is important if you want to regain that healthy glow. Try working several of the following routines into your daily schedule:
- Massage therapy
It is also important to stay hydrated and get enough sleep every night. A good skincare routine works hand-in-hand with any efforts you put into reducing your stress.
