Is your lifestyle stressing your skin?
The external factors we face every day and our lifestyle choices affect the speed of aging on both skin and mind. These stressors alter the skin’s normal cellular processes, contributing to cellular breakdown and eventually hindering skin health, even in biologically young skin.
Recent studies show that the skin not only reacts to psychological stress triggered in the brain, but it’s also able to independently produce stress hormones, in response to environmental aggressions, such as pollution. Skin cortisol overproduction is one of the elements that in the short term makes us look tired, fatigued and older, and over time, fuels inflammation and oxidation, accelerating the overall aging process.
