One of the most common reasons people go to the doctor today is the largest organ in the human body - the skin. In case of trouble with the skin we tend to get desperate to fix it- many pimples or bad skin can get into our mind, will often start to bother us. However, one resorts to the doctor only when one wants to arrest the symptoms, instead of going into the root cause in more detail.
However, that would be more advisable - because recurring skin problems often have something to do with a person's lifestyle. The reason for much neglected for bad skin is, for example, stress. Stress is our unwanted daily companion in everyday life - unfortunately.
We have summarized exactly how stress is related to the skin and what’s the way best to escape it….
Skin and Psychology go hand in hand!
To make the skin feel better, the first step is to combat the unpleasant symptoms.The dermatologist often gives you ointments or creams to do so - and that's a good thing. But sometimes it takes more than a pure symptom treatment, because if stress is the trigger for impure skin, then there is a high probability that after a short time of improvement, the skin tends to deteriorates again. As our skin is the mirror of our soul - you just have to remember how the last time you started to redden with shame or completely pale with shock. This is how our skin reacts very strongly to emotions - if we suffer from constant stress then we can literally read it off our faces.
Our Tip: Just relax once in a while with a girls' night, some movies, some wine and of course using a face mask together with the NAVI Revitalizing Hydro-Night Cream by Doris Wagner Cosmetics - so you are doing your soul and your skin a favour.
Cortisol, a hormone that is not unlike adrenaline, is produced by stress in our body. This hormone is responsible for ensuring that energy from the cells is available as soon as possible so that we can act quickly. However, if this hormone is released from the body for too long, then our entire hormone balance gets mixed up and it affects our blood sugar levels, our cholesterol levels, as well as our lipid metabolism. Such permanent tension also leaves marks on our skin - in the form of pimples, irritation and accelerated skin aging.
Our Tip: If you want to effectively counteract premature skin aging, try our NAVI Anti-Pollution Hydro-Day Cream. It not only protects against premature skin aging, but also protects against pollution and dirt in the air and harmful UV radiation. Definitely a must try product!
Stress in everyday life: There is something you can do about it!
Stress often comes from ourselves. We have too much expectation of ourselves or our abilities - and we try to do everything to justify them. So, to be less stressed, you may want to redefine the demands you place on yourself and even learn to say "no". Also, do not forget to treat yourself to some time off after work - just for yourself. A time to sit down, read a book, knit something or leaf through the newspaper - in short: get some rest.
Changing one's habits is anything but easy - but it is necessary to live a life of higher quality and less stress.
