We all now know that our body's reaction to stress can affect our weight and even our skin but new research out shows stress is more likely to trigger an episode of rosacea than just about any other event.
The research also shows that stress can, and more often than not does, affect every cell in the body, not just the skin on your face. Stress is often heavily linked to psoriasis, eczema and seborrheic dermatitis or acne. Now even hair loss, ridged or brittle nails, hives, fever blisters, shingles and excessively dry skin have a subtle link to stress.
Here are some causes, preventions and treatments to combat that stress and keep a healthy body and complexion.
- Stress and Appearance
But according to the study, stress causes much more than acne. In this stress-induced, high-paced lifestyle, one needs to take a holistic approach to stress and learn to deal with the occasional blemish but move on. Do not stress over appearance, it will only make it worse.
- Stress and Touch
It is very important to surround yourself with family and great friends. Conversation and touch are one of the best stress remedies you can get for free.
- Stress and Essential Oils
You should always have at least one of the following essential oils on hand: chamomile, lavender, lavadin, geranium, vanilla and ylang-ylang.
Scandle's Sensual Blend contains geranium essential oil and Scandle's Calming Blend contains pure french lavender essential oils.
So remember, sometimes you just have to slow down and relax, your body and complexion will thank you later. If you have any great stress-reducing remedies, please do share with us.
