Stress increases the production of Cortisol - a hormone that triggers skin cells to produce more oil, increasing the likelihood of clogged pores.
An increase in stress can affect your quality of sleep, which in turn can accelerate signsThis is often how bags can form under your eyes after you've had a very busy and stressful few weeks or you know, months.
Stress impacts your skins elasticity and ability to retain water, making it increasingly difficult for it to regulate your skins moisture levels. This can potentially accelerate signs of wrinkles earlier than wanted.
Above all, stress can often lead to bad habits, such as picking your skin, drinking, junk food, which have long-term effects as well.
With all that being said, we want to shed light on what you can control - there's no question that stress is a natural part of life, but you can build habits that can help you deal with it through your day to day routine.
We believe that creating strong routines are fundamental to mitigating the effects of stress.
It's important to create a routine that you can rely on daily.
Start off with a simple skincare routine that you can count on doing every morning + night. Integrating little habits and routines can help ground yourself when you're feeling overwhelmed + anxious.
Here are just a few products that you can implement in your skincare routine that not only calms you but can help off mitigate the physical effects of stress.
Our Moisturiser contains the cooling properties of Aloe Vera that not only fights off bacteria but also cools your skin. This is perfect for fighting off inflamed skin that often shows in the form of blemishes and acne from stress.
With the increased production of oils as a result of stress, the likelihood of clogged pores + acne goes up too. Implementing an effective Face Wash is fundamental to ensuring you're keeping your skin free of unwanted bumps and blemishes.
If you're noticing dullness in your skin due to stress, focus on implementing a good exfoliant such as our Face Scrub, which can help assist in the rejuvenation of your skin cells and fight off fine lines.
Dedicating a bit of time out of your day for your skincare routine lets you slow down and focus on you.
