How Does Stress Impact the Skin with JAR Australia

How Does Stress Impact the Skin with JAR Australia

Did you know stress seriously impacts the quality of our skin? Jar Australia tells us why. 

Often, glowing skin starts from inside the body as a direct representation of our lifestyle factors. We've all heard about how food, water and exercise can have an impact on the condition of your skin, but what about stress?

In 2020, stress is experienced by just about everyone and is considered a normal part of everyday life as a result of mental, physical or emotional pressure that exceeds our adaptive power. It is something we have come to accept as a result of our busy schedules, constant notifications and on-the-go lifestyles.

How does this impact the health of our skin?

When we experience stress, our body activates the sympathetic nervous system, more commonly known as ‘fight-or-flight’ mode. When this happens, our digestion slows, which in turn throws off the balance of our gut bacteria. We also increase the production of the stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol. Both of these responses cause the immune system to weaken, triggering inflammatory responses which can cause predisposed conditions such as acne, eczema and psoriasis to flare up. It is important to listen to your body and notice the signs of stress when they first show up, as chronic stress experienced for long periods of time can cause truly detrimental effects on your health and wellbeing.

How can we combat stress and experience healthier, more glowy skin as a result?

It is important to realise that we have very little control over our external environment, however, we can influence what’s going on internally by adopting practices of mindfulness such as yoga, meditation and journaling. It is also recommended to develop a strong self-care ritual away from smartphones and electronic devices. This could be something as simple as lighting a candle, applying a face-mask and reading your favourite book.

When you are experiencing high levels of stress, avoid activities that further promote stress and strive for balance in your life. Then just take a moment to feel gratitude, and see how beautiful you really are!
