Clear skin is the sign of health, youth and happiness. I have come up with expert skin tips on how to reverse the effects of stress that causes various complexion issues.
It is time to welcome clear skin complexion and bid goodbye to stressed out skin. Stress causes a lot more problems than you could imagine, not only does it make you feel awful but also wreaks havoc on your skin. Today in this post I am going to share with you how to know if stress is creating problems to your skin complexion and how to reverse the effects in just five minutes. Here, I have mentioned expert beauty tips on how to get clear skin in just five minutes.
Acne breakouts: Acne breakouts are sure sign of stress especially when they appear the day before a date or some special event. The truth is acne breakouts are caused by stress. Borcau explains, “Overproduction of the stress hormone cortisol sets the stage for acne flare-ups by promoting oily skin and interfering with your body’s ability to regulate inflammation”. The question here is how to get rid of acne? First you need to have a clear and oil free skin to make sure you don’t have clogged pores on skin. In order to calm your complexion, use an organic skin cream that has natural anti-inflammatories like green tea and chamomile, you can also use creams that contain the natural mineral sun block zinc oxide, which reduces oiliness.
Wrinkles: Wrinkles are awful looking ragged lines on skin that make you look a lot more older than your natural age. No one really likes to discuss much about wrinkles, let alone face them in the mirror. Minimize stress to make sure you have clear, smooth and younger looking skin. “Cortisol also causes blood sugar levels to spike. The excess sugar molecules in your bloodstream can bond to the proteins in your skin’s collagen fibers causing them to harden and crack and resulting in loose skin and deep wrinkles,” explains Borcau. Clear skin diet involves maintaining proper blood sugar levels. Stay away from refined carbohydrates like white bread and junk food to get the perfect younger looking skin. To ensure that you keep skin looking youthful, eat more vegetables, whole grains and beans.
Dry Skin: Dehydration causes dry skin. The long stressful office hours are to be blamed for dry skin. Borcau says, “Stress interferes with the ability of the skin to retain moisture”. Stress adversely affects your skin by causing dehydration or dry skin, so deal with it by changing your regular cream with a rich cream that contains plant-extracted moisturizers such as aloe vera, hyaluronic acid, shea butter and avocado oil. These creams will not only moisturize your skin but will also help hydrate and lubricate the skin as well. This will enhance the beautiful appearance of the skin. These natural plants extracts also function as a natural shield against bacteria, irritants and toxins.
Less collagen production: Stress also gives you dull and older looking skin. All of you who want youthful-looking skin or would rather turn back the clock, then the best way to deal with it would be to find a way to minimize stress. “Increased levels of another stress hormone, epinephrine, constricts blood vessels, reducing the flow of oxygen and nutrients that skin needs to manufacture collagen,” says Borcau. In order to fight the effect of stress on your skin, move your face, increased facial movements will reduce stress and also make the facial nerves more flexible that will help the easy flow of oxygen and nutrients. This way the skin will be able to produce more collagen. Laughing for sure is the medicine in every sense of the word.
Skin Abuse and Negligence: Skin negligence is your complexion’s greatest enemy. You may be overloaded with frustrating demands and a never-ending to-do list but it doesn’t mean that you go to bed without removing makeup or not bothering to moisturize your skin before sleep. Many also abuse their skin by indulging in bad habits like picking at their skin or fidgeting with their acne and scars. To get your skin back on track, go for a professional facial once a month. Pamper your skin at home by applying homemade facial masks and face packs. Skin cleansing is also very important as it will remove black heads and all the dead skin, and leave you with clear skin.
Proper skin care, healthy diet, plenty of sleep and a beautiful mind is all you need to look beautiful and stay young forever. Am sure you find this article useful, don’t forget to share your ideas with us.
