Feeling stressed? Whether it’s due to work, relationships, finances or life events, your emotional health is reflected in your skin. With a little care, however, the damage can be reversed!


Skin and Stress


1. STRESS CAN CONTRIBUTE TO WRINKLES

 

Think of what you do to your face when you’re under the pump – you frown, you squint, you purse your lips, you scrunch up your nose. Repeat these even a couple of times and you’re on the road to premature ageing. Keep crows feet, the elevens, and marionette lines at bay by using potent skincare. In the meantime, a few minutes of meditation and deep breathing will help your facial muscles relax!
 

2. A WORRIED, SLEEPLESS LOOK INSTANTLY AGES YOU

 

It’s a truth universally acknowledged that “You look tired” actually means that you look old. In times of trouble, it’s likely you’re not catching too many zeds and your worries are taking up a lot of time and energy. While it’s important to address these issues with mindfulness or sleep-inducing techniques, there are ways to fake a restful night! Dermalogica Multi Active Toner will pep-up and refresh with every nourishing spritz.

3. WE’RE MORE LIKE TO EAT BADLY

 

While there’s no direct link to diet and skin problems, there’s no doubt that nutritionally-poor foods do us no favours. Unfortunately when we’re stressed, we crave comfort foods like sweets, carbohydrates and high-fat goods, or increase our alcohol and caffeine intake. Hello break-outs, puffiness and a lifeless complexion! Be sure to make some healthier dietary choices and you’ll be well on track to feeling better.
 

4. OUR SKIN GOES DULL AND SALLOW

 

What’s going on inside, nearly always manifests itself on the outside, too. Anxiety impairs our skin’s regeneration functions and circulation system. Blood is frequently directed away from the digestive system, causing excessive acidity – which for our complexion, means dehydration, paleness/dark circles, and bags. Nice! Get on the corrective bandwagon with the Dermalogica Ultra Calming range.

5. STRESS MAKES US FIDGETTY

 

I don’t know about you, but when I’m anxious, I cannot sit still. I put my head in my hands, pull my skin, stretch my lips, rub my eyes – all unknowingly! As well as contributing to fine lines, the constant touching transmits bacteria onto our face from our hands – and trust me, they are teeming with germs! These impurities then contribute to whiteheads, blackheads and more so keep skin clear with a good exfoliator.
