Is your skin freaking out? Is your skin looking dull and feeling dry during this stay-at-home period? While we’re all trying our best to cope calmly and keep our anxiety and stress in check while we work from home, do online school, entertain kiddos and more, there’s a marker we all have that may be an overlooked indicator of how we’re honestly managing all this. Any guesses? Who guessed SKIN?
With a little extra time on your rough chappy hands right now, you might like to read this short Huff Post article to learn what the experts say about how stress can mess with your skin.
Did you catch this quote? "Stress is not our friend, neither for our mind nor for our skin." Dr. Joshua Zeichner, the director of Cosmetic and Clinical Research in dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital, NYC.
If you’ve gotten a bit lazy, have a blemish or two, feel like the moisture has been sucked out of your skin or you've totally lost your glow, it's time to ramp up your skin care routine. Spring is the perfect time to begin a new fresh routine especially if you don’t have one or if the one you’ve been using forever isn’t creating the change you’d like to see.
Start today with these 5 healthy self-care tips.
1. Think simply. Skin care doesn't need to be complicated.
2. Go gently as you cleanse. Are you using a gentle non-foaming cleanser?
3. Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate! This means inside and out. Go grab a glass of water or make a hot tea and start sipping!
4. Nourish skin with potent and safe botanicals.
5. Moisturize with skin products that are effective against dryness.
