In a fast-paced world, that’s always on and running, stress abounds. While a healthy dose of daily stress is helpful, prolonged stress in excess can have serious ramifications.
“Over time, continued strain on your body from stress may contribute to serious health problems.” Putting you at risk for “heart disease, high blood pressure, [and] diabetes.” What’s more, “mental disorders such as depression or anxiety,” are one of the more sinister risks of chronic stress, says the National Institute of Mental Health. And, ultimately, such illnesses can also negatively affect your skin and overall appearance.
So, what can you do to control stress? And, how can stress impact your beauty?
Listen To Your Body
“[Your] stress hormones,” says The American Institute of Stress, “[are also] your body’s fight or flight response.” Thus, a stressful situation can send your heart racing. Next thing you know, your breath quickens, and your muscles are ready for action. A response designed to protect in an emergency, now becoming ordinary. “But, when the stress response keeps firing — day after day — it could put your health at serious risk.”
Various symptoms of chronic stress can be indicative of more serious health issues. Namely, irritability, anxiety, depression, headaches, and insomnia. Even worse, your major organs can become desensitized to emergencies over time or even shutdown!
Your entire body is susceptible to such action. Including your central nervous and endocrine system, respiratory and cardiovascular system. Or, your digestive system, muscular system, immune system, and even your sexual and reproductive system! “Stress is ubiquitous and follows us everywhere,” says The American Institue of Stress. Our task is figuring out how to work with it, or around it.
Losing Your Allure to Stress
Did you know that chronic stress can break down the barriers in your skin? Of course, aging is characterized by the formation of lines and wrinkles, increased pigmentation, loss of elasticity, and firmness, and dull skin. But, these barriers, which protect you, heal your wounds, and guard your skin, can with time begin to weaken — “the consequence of both intrinsic and extrinsic factors,” says the National Center for Biotechnology Information.
In fact, it’s not uncommon to see “reduced cellular life span, decreased responsiveness and functionality, and dysfunctional immune responses.” Admittedly, “the exact mechanism of how stress impacts skin aging is still quite elusive.”
However, recent research has provided substantial evidence. Such compiled evidence is damning of a reality that hasn’t been recorded. To which end, the study published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information says that “UV irradiation is one of the major extrinsic stressors responsible for premature skin aging.”
Care for Your Skin
“If I could turn back time — if I could find a way . . . ” That’s what Cher sings. Is there a way? Can you turn back time and its effects on your skin? While no one can promise to undo aging, there are treatments that can reverse the signs of aging!
