Manage Stress for Better Skin #NaturalBeautybyLuanaMarchi
It is funny how most of the people don't see the connection between Stress and Skin Health
The negative effects of stress are cumulative as stress can cause lack of sleep or alter your appetite, both of which can contribute to premature skin aging and skin problems.
When you are under pressure your skin is too, in fact, the condition of your skin can be a reflection of what is going on inside your body.
During periods of stress, stress hormones such as cortisol go into overdrive; this slows down the turnover of cells causing the body to become overloaded with toxins. High cortisol triggers inflammation, which breaks down collagen—the protein that keeps skin firm, plump, and smooth—resulting in thin skin, fine lines, and dryness.
Sleep and stress levels are closely connected. Poor and inadequate sleep will cause irritability and stress. Having a healthy amount of sleep will enhance your wellbeing and functionality.
If you notice a bit of nervous tension, anxiety or sleep issues increasing your magnesium consumption (pumpkin seeds, avocado, almonds, cacao & green leafy veggies) might be appropriate. Magnesium helps to offset tension and stress within the body, as well as relaxing the muscles.
By applying small amounts of magnesium oil in tensioned areas, shoulders and feet it will help calm your nervous system and allow you to have a more restful sleep.
It is during the sleep hours that our body works on muscle and tissue repair, grown hormones and regulation of appetite.
