How Stress Affects Your Skin

4 Ways Stress Can Affect Your Skin

Hi Everyone, Tina here (+1 662 830 8246, info@nakedactives.com)

You only need to open up your social media feeds to see that these are some tumultuous times. Masks have become the new norm in many countries. The global pandemic, associated with the stress of a navigating its many complexities can wreak havoc on your mental health and your skin.

Here are four ways in which stress can affect your skin. 

1. ACNE

When you are stressed your body produces a hormone called Cortisol. Cortisol is known to produce excess oil which can lead to clogged pores. Not only this, when we are  stressed out, we tend to touch our faces more which can spread bacteria. Add a mask into this equation and we have a recipe for acne.

Your Best

Acne, fine lines, Wrinkles, Dry skin, Inflammation, Bags, Naked Actives

Bet: Use a good cleanser, such as our Naked Actives Hydrating Cleanser. Use it as part of your morning & evening skincare routine. This cleanser won’t strip your skin of its natural protective oils and will help maintain your skin's natural PH.

Remove your mask when not needed

Go Bare! Remove all makeup when you are done your day. A fresh, clean, well-moisturized face feels great. 

2. Bags under your Eyes!

Puffiness or swelling underneath your eyelids, AKA bags under your eyes. This can be caused by many things such as stress, lack of sleep, aging & reduced elasticity of the skin beneath your eye. 

Your Best Bet: Try our Anti-Aging Eye Cream, It’s a powerhouse of active ingredients and is for anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their skin around their eyes. This cream will help decrease the appearance of wrinkles, puffiness, and dark circles around the eyes. 

3. Stress Can Dry out your Skin

When we are stressed we start to produce adrenaline & cortisol. The flight or fight response kicks in which in turn activates our eccrine (sweat) glands leading to dehydration. If you aren’t drinking enough water,  you will become dehydrated. 

Your Best Bet: Drink half of your body weight in ounces of water each day. Keep some water on your bedside table so when your alarm goes off, you can start on your daily water intake. 

4. Stress can Trigger Inflammation

When your body is stressed it starts producing cortisol which in turn weakens your immune system. This can then cause inflammation which can activate eczema or a psoriasis flare-up. That’s a pretty serious price to pay for stress.

Your Best Bet: Squalane Oil, Squalane is naturally produced by the skin but diminishes with age, making our oil-based serum a perfect natural moisturizer. It balances oil production, providing just enough moisture to keep the skin clear and more vibrant. 

This oil also has powerful anti-aging properties and will help the skin age gracefully as well as anti-inflammatory benefits to help with skin conditions such as acne. We recommend this oil with your daily routine.
