Stress and your skin

Posted by tucker ashley on Aug 17th 2015

So many of us have such hectic lives, and we often find our days packed with stress stemming from our environment. We know that a tough day at the office will leave us worn out and in a bad mood, but what other effects could this stress have on us? It’s more than just exhausting; stress can leave some seriously noticeable marks on our skin in the form of acne breakouts, wrinkles, and fine lines around the eyes. Stress, whether physical or emotional, stimulates a hormone called cortisol in our bodies. Cortisol is helpful in small amounts, but higher levels of it for longer periods of time can have negative results. Some of us try to minimize our stress by smoking, eating sweets, or drinking. Unfortunately, these actions serve to only worsen our stress and damage our bodies, including our skin. But in such a fast-paced and high-stress society, how can we take care of our skin and still manage our responsibilities? The answer can be found in any one of a wide variety of Tucker Ashley products, such as the Fruit Enzyme Mask that can help you to de-stress and leave your face with a healthy, glowing complexion. The goal is to renew and hydrate your skin, which is ultimately the best way to keep it glowing. Large amounts of stress can leave untreated skin with noticeable damage. Even with so much going on around us, it’s important to save some time to cherish the skin you’re in.
