5 Ways Stress Wreaks Havoc on Your Skin
Posted on July 18, 2016 by Ella Fedonenko
Today’s women often juggle work, relationships, children, and active social lives—it’s easy to get stressed out when you’re that busy! And if we’re not careful, signs of stress can wreak havoc on our skin. Follow these tips to stay beautiful, even under stress.
1.Under Eye Bags
Most adults need 7-9 hours of sleep each night. Unfortunately, stress can make getting enough sleep a challenge, causing you to wake up with unsightly under eye bags. If you suffer from chronic under eye bags, intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment offers a permanent solution.
2. Dry, Flaky Skin
Drinking enough water (not to mention less coffee) isn’t always easy when you’re super busy, but these habits can leave you with dry, dull, flaky skin. Drinking at least 8 glasses of water each day and using high-quality skin care products, like those from the SkinMedica range, can make a huge difference in your complexion.
3. Facial Acne
It’s a well-known fact that stress can make acne worse. Self-care measures, like eating well and drinking enough water, can go a long way towards keeping your skin clear. For more severe acne problems, chemical peels are a great option.
4. Rosacea and Flushing
Stress can certainly cause a flare-up of rosacea. If you suffer from rosacea, IPL can reduce persistent red undertones in your complexion.
5. Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Many people have a habit of making certain facial expressions when they’re stressed, such as furrowing the brow or pursing their lips. Over time, these unconscious expressions can lead to fine lines and wrinkles. Taking good care of your skin and making a conscious effort to avoid certain facial expressions are important preventative measures, but Botox and fillers are the best tools for treating and preventing wrinkles.
