Do you find your skin breaking out just as you have a huge event looming? Do zits emerge out of the blue right before a big presentation? Did you know that your stress levels can exacerbate breakouts?
Your body & skin responds to changes in you psychological state, so when you feel stressed, your sympathetic nervous system releases stress hormones, like cortisol, into your body. Cortisol causes increased oil production in your skin glands, which can lead to clogged pores & acne breakouts. Additionally, stress can illicit an inflammatory response in your skin, causing an increase in redness, marks, blemishes & breakouts.
Now to combat this response, the first line of defence is to address the stressors. Meditation can be a great help to calm the mind & the body. While it can be hard to remove all sources of stress in our lives, the good news is, there are some amazing natural herbs & vitamins that we can take to help assist with the increased oil production, the inflammatory repose & even help settle the stomach & mind a little.
My Perfect Skin Kit combines a fantastic range of ingredients thad specifically address these stress related responses in the skin.
