4 Ways Stress Can Affect Your Skin

crop-7

Stress happens. Sometimes we can’t avoid it and other times we let it get the better of us. The best thing we can do is learn to manage stress and take good care of ourselves by trying to sleep more, eat better, exercise regularly, and care for our skin. If not, signs of stress may start to show up physically.

Stress is not just something that manifests in your mind and stays there. It can affect your skin, hair, and nails, to name a few. So, let’s look at a few things stress can do to skin and how to get yours back to looking healthy and glowing.

Dark Circles and Lack of Sleep

In an ideal world, we’d all get a solid eight hours of sleep a night. Unfortunately, even minor stressors over time can add up and impact your quality of sleep. You may notice puffy eyes and dark circles as a result. (Some people have those issues regardless of stress and lack of sleep, but it can certainly be exacerbated.)

Caffeine applied topically can help brighten the eye area, so get your glow on with a cooling and brightening eye balm packed with caffeine and other skin-loving ingredients such as probiotics, aloe, apple, watermelon, and blueberry. A superfood and probiotic skincare regimen is beneficial for dehydrated, uneven-toned, acne-prone, aging, sensitive, and oily skin.

Stress and Skin Flare-Ups

Stress can impact existing skin conditions negatively. You may experience a flare-up brought on by stress or a breakout that certainly wasn’t aided by it. Fortunately, flare-ups and breakouts do clear up. If you haven’t established a skin care routine you can get behind, maybe try a starter kit first for dry skin concerns or to get a clearer complexion, depending on what your needs are. Some of the best brands feature skincare quizzes on their site to help you determine the best products for your specific needs.

Neglected Skincare

Skin can become aggravated if you neglect your daily skincare. Even if you’re stressed or tired, don’t forget to love your skin. It doesn’t have to be an elaborate process, but all skin needs to be cleansed and hydrated, whether it’s oily, sensitive, acne-prone, dry, or combination. Gentle but effective moisturizers and cleansers for your skin type with natural ingredients such as superfoods and probiotics are hydrating and nourishing.

Skin, Mind, Gut

There’s a strong connection between stress, the gut, and inflamed skin. Ever notice that your digestion may seem a bit off—either sped up or slowed down—when you’re highly stressed? It’s all connected. Stress and internal inflammation issues can also cause breakouts or trigger flare-ups of other skin conditions. To help combat the impact of stress, seek out ways to manage it and also adopt a clean, effective skincare regimen to help promote a calm, healthy complexion.
