There are times when our skin seems to have a mind of its own!
You know what I’m talking about.
You think you know your skin well, when out of the blue, it decides to turn on you by breaking out, drying out; or just acting differently than it used to. Many times, it’s because we’re doing (or not) doing something to make it misbehave, or “stress out.
No worries, though! Today we’re going to talk about 3 ways to stop stressing out your skin!
Manage your stress
Stress is something we all go through. It’s a part of life, and although it begins in the mind, it can cause panic throughout our body; even our skin. Although we can’t stop stress, we can learn to better manage it.
What that looks like for you could be anything that puts you in a positive mood. From helping someone at the grocery store to paying for lunch for the person behind you in line. Paying it forward, and surrounding yourself with positive influences and spending time with people who support and love you are some of the best ways to manage your stress.
Get more sleep
You’ve probably heard this a hundred times! But, what you might not know is sleep isn’t just brain food for the mind. Sleep is especially important to our skin because it’s during that time our skin builds collagen, and works to repair itself. When we don’t get enough sleep, we interrupt that process. That’s why others can easily tell when we haven’t slept well; it’s literally written all over our face!
