SKIN STRESS AGES THE SKIN

MOST OF US ARE SUFFERING FROM VARYING DEGREES OF CHRONIC STRESS! THIS CREATES SKIN STRESS!

 

How much skin stress we carry is  determined by our stress levels; the food we eat; our alcohol consumption; how much sleep we are getting; as well as our exposure to environmental stresses such as sun, pollution, dry air, day to day chemicals, toxins and smoking.

 

Stress is one of the greatest ageing factors for our skin. The long-term impacts of daily stress show up on our faces and bodies, causing us to look older than we are.   At a physiological level, when we feel stressed, our adrenal glands release cortisol, which decreases our skin's natural production of hyaluronic acid.  As a result skin loses elasticity; repair enzymes don't work as well, wrinkles form easily and the skin ages prematurely.  

Adrenaline brought on by stress means that blood flow to the skin is decreased, robbing it of vital nutrients, including oxygen. Less oxygen creates sluggish circulation, a dull complexion and aged looking skin. Environmental stresses such as sun damage, toxins, pollution, day to day chemicals and smoking will all dry and age the skin.

 

Boston dermatologist Dr. Ranella Hirsch says, "There are very few skin conditions that stress doesn't exacerbate: […those that stress does impact include…] dryness, acne, rosacea, eczema, sensitivity, redness, and wrinkles".
