While often unwanted, stress is frequently unavoidable. Whether stress is brought on by work, relationships or unforeseen events, it can wreak havoc on your daily life.
Stress kick-starts the hormone cortisol, which leads nearly every organ in the body to cause blood vessels to become fragile. Over time, skin will have difficulty regenerating, which results in the appearance of aging. In addition to the body’s response to stress, we tend to gravitate towards comfort items like alcohol, chocolate, and salty foods, all of which can all cause damage to the skin.
Salty foods specifically are known to cause dehydration, which can lead to dry skin and makes those fine lines and wrinkles more prevalent. To rehydrate the skin and help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, try a healing moisturizer.
The feeling of being angry causes tension in the facial muscles, leading to potentially deep wrinkles in the forehead and around the mouth.
Anger can also slow your skin’s healing and rejuvenation processes and has even been to known to cause dark spots, hives, rashes, eczema and acne.
Much like anger, depression can present itself in the facial muscles, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles. To help with this, TriDerma recommends using a skin scrub or exfoliator.
Depression can cause important hormones in the body to stop functioning properly, causing the eyes to appear puffy. Rub the scrub in to the skin and rinse with water for a softer complexion.
Fear And Embarrassment
Becoming frightened or embarrassed can cause the skin to turn red in color, and if occurring too often, it can cause swelling in certain blood vessels.
The swelling of these blood vessels could potentially lead to facial redness, or more commonly known as rosacea. Triderma offers products that can help with these particular symptoms, and you can reduce potential lasting damage caused by rosy cheeks.
Let’s end things on a positive note. Not all emotions are harmful. Being in a state of pure happiness or joy not only does wonders to the soul, it replenishes the skin as well.
When we feel happy, we tend to gravitate towards healthy food options, resulting in less acne and brighter skin. We recommend taking a few moments out of your day to focus on the positive and do something that relaxes you, whether it’s going on a walk with a loved one, sipping on tea and reading a book, or enjoying the latest episode of “The Bachelor.”
