Facials and Skincare for Stressed Out Skin Idan Med Spa. Stress may not always be caused by a life changing event like a wedding or a new job (or a pandemic), but can be simply caused by little
things that go unnoticed. While you may not be aware of these events building in our body, the body does not overlook these subtleties. Over time, stress can have a big impact on yo
ur skin. Stress and worry, whether you’re aware of it or not, trigger the body to react in a fight or flight mode. While this may be useful when experiencing real danger or for those
that work best under pressure, the burst of adrenaline, cortisol and other stress hormones released during times of stress can have a negative impact on the skin, causing imperfections.
While the body is experiencing stress, there is an increase in levels of cortisol that suppress the immune system and redirect essential vitamins and minerals, prioritizing vital bodily functions while giving less attention to the needs of the skin.
This erratic disruption of hormones can be interpreted as inflammation by the body. This facial stress will often cause flare-ups in skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, and atopic dermatitis, causing further skin inflammation.
Other signs of stress and fatigue include:
A dull complexion
Overstimulated sebaceous glands that may lead to breakouts
Over time, chronic stress and consistently elevated levels of cortisol cause the body to maintain a catabolic process in which the body breaks down cells and stops repairing tissue. This decreases the production of collagen and elastin, which ultimately leads to skin tension lines and wrinkles. The skin is often an indicator of what is happening
internally. When skin is stressed, it is best to use gentle products with soothing ingredients like aloe vera, colloidal oatmeal, niacinamide and hyaluronic acid to restore the skin’s hydration and barrier function. You can also use mild exfoliators like the IDAN MED SPA SCRUB . As always, the most important thing is to wear SPF daily to prevent further irritation from the sun. When it comes to stress, products are not the only solution. Taking time out for yourself is the key. Find what helps you go into a restful, parasympathetic mode. Breathe deeply. When stressed, breaths tend to be more shallow, depriving the skin of much-needed oxygen and increasing our anxiety. Redirect your focus to things you’re able to control that don’t involve picking at your skin so that any skin inflammation or conditions do not continue to worsen.
