Did you know that stress can cause physical symptoms? It’s true. Stress can even induce certain cosmetic skin conditions such as acne. It’s difficult not to get stressed with everything going on in the world, and if you feel you are experiencing a stress overload, consider practicing peaceful techniques to alleviate some of the symptoms. For instance, we often consider exercise to be a terrific cure for stress. But exercise is a broad term, and which type of exercise is best to alleviate stress symptoms? There are some types of exercise, such as Yoga, that are proven to help to alleviate stress. Yoga is a wonderful choice because it can be performed on a few feet of floor space, and almost everyone has the physical ability to participate.
It’s sounds obvious, but food can also have an impact on our health. Most of us know that foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and lean dairy are god for the body (Assuming we’re not allergic). But food can also have a major impact on how we feel both physically and mentally. It’s especially important for our skin. Research shows that foods high in beneficial nutrients such as antioxidants and Vitamin C are extremely beneficial to our skin. Of course, it’s also important to remember to minimize or limit altogether highly processed foods and refined carbohydrates.
There are other ways to keep our skin healthy. And it’s important to treat skin gently and to moisturize as much as possible. When we’re washing our hands and using hand sanitizers, it’s important to remember to avoid soaps and detergents that can strip the oil from the skin. An alcohol-based product such as hand sanitize will dry out the skin quickly, and you should always remember to moisturize routinely.
Remember to treat yourself to regular care.
