During this time as we face the coronavirus crisis, life can be scary and unknown. If you are like me, anxiety can run deep. We need to be there for each other right now through text, Facetime, Messenger, Zoom, or other Internet options. I have always known that stress leads to depression, high blood pressure, and the list goes on. Stress can play a factor in skin issues as well.
One of the major side effects of stress is fatigue. After sleepless nights, we begin to look tired, dull and have dark circles under our eyes. Here are some tips to assist with stress-related skin concerns:
Dullness. Stress triggers cortisol, which will slow down the skin cells and give us a dry, dull surface. A mask will help you at home. Try Image Probiotic mask with its blend of yogurt-based probiotics and nourishing super fruit that will help balance the skin. This deep green mask contains essential vitamins and antioxidants to nourish the skin and fight the dullness. The ingredients are detoxifying and help reduce skin stressors.
Adult Acne. One of the worst side effects of stress on the skin can be acne. Hormones that occur because of stress make your skin flare-up. Here is where you have to be careful to not exfoliate too much. A probiotic mask can help here as well!
Dryness. Stress can also cause dry, itchy skin. We tend to have a low lipid barrier that will reduce the skin’s ability to retain water. Ageless total pure hyaluronic filler to the rescue! This product can rapidly smooth the appearance of wrinkles and delivers an immediate and noticeable boost of hydration. It’s a great way to fill the lines without injections!
Also, remember during stressful times to try to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and eating well. When we are up and going again, all of these products will be 20% off and any skin treatments will also be 20% off to get us all back to feeling normal again.
