Stress affects every part of your body and is often most visibly displayed on your skin. Stress causes a spike in cortisol, a hormone that controls metabolism and immunity. It also plays a role in inflammation, cell renewal, and sebum production.
Excess cortisol can contribute to breakouts, rashes, dryness, dullness, and itching. You can restore your skin’s healthy glow with a skincare routine designed for stressed out skin.
Increased sebum production can result in stress-related breakouts. Rather than using moisture stripping facial wash, use a gentle acne cleanser like FaceSurgeon II Medicated Soap or target individual pimples to eliminate bacteria and redness.
A teatree oil-based acne treatment offers antibacterial and wound healing properties. Apply every evening after cleansing and moisturizing, and leave overnight.
Use Gentle Cleansers
Stressed out skin is easily irritated by pollutants and harsh cleansers, causing redness and itching. It’s critical to use a gentle cleanser when your skin is stressed to avoid removing too much of its natural moisture.
FaceDoctor Rejuvenating Soap has the perfect balance of moisturizing and cleansing ingredients to support your skin’s health when you are stressed. The powerful active ingredient, Sea Buckthorn oil, is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent, helping to reduce redness, flaking, and irritation.
Apply Hyaluronic Acid
Excess cortisol weakens your skin’s natural protective barrier, leading to dryness. You can boost your skin’s moisture levels with hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a humectant, so it absorbs and traps moisture in your skin.
FaceDoctor Acide Hyaluronique is a high-potency formula that immediately firms and plumps skin that shows signs of fatigue due to stress.
Stimulate Blood Flow With Facial Massage
When applying moisturizer or serum, a gentle facial massage can help boost blood flow and rejuvenate dull skin due to stress. Use your fingertips or a jade roller to apply gentle but firm pressure to activate the muscles underneath the skin, rather than just stretching your skin’s top layer.
Use FaceDoctor to Restore Stressed Out Skin
In addition to using high-quality FaceDoctor products to care for and support your skin, ensure you take some time out to relax. Schedule time for stress-busting activities like yoga, walking, or a chat with a friend – your skin will thank you for it.
