Signs That Show Stressed Skin

Signs That Show Stressed Skin

Stress is detrimental to your skin. It has been scientifically proven that the hormone cortisol literally gets under your skin and makes you age faster.

Here are 5 signs that you need to watch out for:

1. Dry Skin
Cortisol damages the skin’s ability to hold on to water. Having chronic stress increases this hormone.

2. Lines and Wrinkles
An elevation in blood sugar can be triggered by cortisol. This damages collagen and elastin, the protein fibers that plump skin and keep it smooth. Constant muscle tension also leads to permanent wrinkling.

3. Redness
When you’re under duress, increased blood flow occurs causing your capillaries to expand. Stress can also trigger rosacea, or flushing. And did you know that stress weakens your immune system too?

4. Acne
Of course, we all know that when you’re stressed, breakouts happen.

5. Tired Eyes
Anxiety can absolutely bring about many sleepless nights. And this in turn creates puffiness around the eyes.

Now that you know what to watch out for, you can apply home therapies or get professional services to counter these not-so-pretty effects from stress.

Is There A Safe Exfoliant For Dry, Flaky Skin?

by Lissa Logan on August 21, 2017

If you have dry skin, we’re betting you’re a bit nervous about exfoliating. It’s no wonder. Dry skin does not exfoliate well, which causes it to look flaky, chalky, and just plain dull.

The skin’s “glue” is sebum, or oil, and dry skin definitely doesn’t produce much of it. What little is produced tends to solidify and stick to the skin’s surface longer than it should.

The result is literally patches of glued on skin cells, which you see as dry skin patches. If you do not exfoliate, you’ll find that the surface of your skin hardens and cracks. Over time, these cracks penetrate further into the layers of your skin causing permanent scarring.

If you do exfoliate, the tendency is to do so aggressively with a rough granular scrub to force the removal of dry flakes.

If you’ve ever tried this, you know it doesn’t work. Aggressive home exfoliation only inflames your skin and you still have dry flakes! Instead, choose a gentle exfoliator which has micro beads that also hydrate your skin.

Dry skin is not a condition to be taken lightly! Beneficial and highly effective skincare is the answer! Talk to us about a skincare regimen that works with you to relieve dry skin and make you look instantly younger!

And if you’re looking for even deeper relief with huge anti-aging benefits, consider glycolic acid peels. They, too, work wonders for dry skin.
