How Stress Affects Skin and Methods to Help You Cope

When we’re stressed, we’re also less likely to eat right, get enough sleep, or stick with our exercise routines. That affects our overall health, but also our appearance. The skin fails to get the nutrients it needs to repair itself.

How can you reduce the effects of stress on your skin? First of all, try to use coping techniques like exercise, meditation, calming music, and more to reduce your stress levels. In addition to that, increase your attention to your skin with these methods to help you reduce your risk of acne, flare-ups, and other issues.

1. Avoid hot showers and baths. They strip your skin of moisture. Use lukewarm instead and moisturize immediately after your shower.

2. Wear sunscreen. Though sun exposure can be helpful for some skin conditions, it can also cause flare-ups and increase the look of aging. Wear sunscreen even in the winter.

3. Eat a healthy diet. Your skin really reflects your diet. During the holidays, do your best to continue to eat healthy foods like leafy greens, fruits and vegetables, whole grains and healthy fats like olive oil.

4. Get enough sleep. Sleep helps recharge your body and make it more resilient to stress. Lack of sleep shows up as those ugly circles under your eyes. Try to stick to a regular bedtime and do something relaxing beforehand like yoga or aromatherapy.

5. Keep your hands away from your face. Bacteria from your hands can stimulate an acne outbreak, especially when you’re stressed.

6. Hydrate. Drink enough water to flush impurities from your body, which can help keep skin clear.

7. Exfoliate. Getting rid of those dead skin cells helps your newer cells show through, which increases the glow of skin.

8. Try an herbal facial. These can perform double duty—relax you and relax your skin.

9. Commit to a daily skin-care regimen. During the holidays it’s easy to forget our regular skin care routine. You feel rushed, or maybe you’re too exhausted at night to put in the time. Just five minutes morning and night to cleanse, tone, and hydrate can make a big difference!
