STRESS AND SKIN
We live in a world where stress is kind of omnipresent. One can't imagine a life without stress. The trick is to understand and learn how much stress to take and how much to avoid.And more importantly, how to manage stress.
In last two years we all have gone through a universal stress situation and we also know that many of us had undergone extreme stress levels and many of us were able to have a control on the same.
Human life consists of various conditions, situations or circumstances, wherein one can't cease to undergo stress, completely.But the wise and healthy option is to not make stress a part of one's lifestyle.
The psychological studies say that some amount of stress is required for better competence and performance, at the same time one should be able to draw the line where to stop stress from affecting our physical and mental well-being.
Therefore, if stress is not acknowledged and managed properly, it will affect our overall personality, including the way we look, our skin and it's conditions.
In human body, the skin is the largest organ.It holds fluids, preventing dehydration and keeps harmful microbes out, also preventing infections.Anything that irritates, clogs or inflames the skin can cause redness, swelling, burning and itching.
Allergies, irritants and genetic makeup, certain diseases and immune system problems can cause rashes, hives and other skin conditions.Your body responds to changes in your psychological state.Conditions like stress, depression and anxiety can cause skin issues, or can flare up the existing ones.
Stress leads to harmonal changes, an increase in cortisol and adrenaline hormones.
Higher cortisol levels increases the oil production in your skin glands, which leads to clogged pores and acne breakouts.
Stress caused by sleep deprivation can cause ageing signs in skin, like fine lines, loss of elasticity, under-eye bags and uneven pigmentation.
Skin conditions like Psoriasis, Rosacea and Eczema gets aggravated by stress.
Overactive immune system, heredity or environmental factors leads to many unpleasant skin conditions.Starting from our body constitution, our eating habits, our lifestyle habits, our choice of cosmetics, everything is related to our capacity to handle stress.
Hygiene plays an important role in maintaining a healthy skin.There's a tendency of our body to sweat more in stressful situations.Hence it's very important to maintain hygiene, using a clean and soft towel or cloth to blot sweat, washing sweaty clothes, headbands, towels and hats before using them again.
Using NON-COMEDOGENIC products will help a great deal, the label should mention OIL-FREE or WON'T CLOG PORES.Conditions like Rosacea gets flared up by having hot drinks and spicy foods, therefore can be avoided or reduced.
To prevent such skin conditions to occur due to stress, one should try and adopt a healthy and clean lifestyle.
Alongwith eating and drinking right, doing physical activities to stay in good shape, meditation and yoga to calm the mind and body in stressful situations, keeping a positive and healthy attitude, the correct choice of skin products, according to our skin type and skin conditions is definitely going to give us a relief from unpleasant skin conditions in stressful times.
