Given the current state of the world, “stress” continues to refine our endurance. Stress can lead to some unfortunate outcomes, especially if its left unchecked. Let’s explore, in brief, how stress can manifest through our skin, and a few coping strategies to help in the process of dealing with it.

When we are stressed, the levels of cortisol (referred to as the “stress” hormone) in our bodies increase. While this does play an important role in our fight-or flight response, too much too often can cause problems.

High levels of this hormone result in the body producing high amounts of sebum. The excess amount of sebum promotes the occurrence of clogged pores, which lead to inflammation, thus causing acne, rashes, psoriasis etc. Those suffering from pre-existing skin conditions (eczema, hives, acne, etc.) are highly susceptible to flare ups.

HOW CAN WE DEAL WITH STRESS?

Magnesium is one way in which to battle stress, as it helps to lower cortisol levels and reduce inflammation. Our hair and nails also come under attack, which is why magnesium is a great over-all aid in battling stress. To protect and preserve our skin, and our peace of mind overall, here are some ways in which we can deal with stress:

Exercise

Steady Water Intake

Deep Breathing

Hatha Yoga

Reading

Healthy Diet

Support System

Meditation

Writing

Music

THERE IS NO ONE SIZE FITS ALL MODEL TO STRESS.

There are many coping mechanisms that we can utilize to maintain balance in our lives. Some take the “one size fits all” approach, which can be counterproductive. We all have unique situations which may call for a certain combination of strategies. Take the time to “be” with yourself and go from there. As always, may you and your family be well during these times and beyond, and remain vigilant on your health and wellness journey.

Pine Tar Soap
Tarek Jiha (Hollywood, US)
All natural

Will last a lot longer than expected if you cut it into smaller pieces, smells great and I feel reassured that it’s all natural.

I felt it was not necessary

Honestly, I used it on a purchase at Donata's and really felt it was a waste of money. Thankfully we haven't had mail delivery problems. Thoughts that it was a way to get more money from us went through my mind, The real reason I used it was because I couldn't get it off my purchase total and I was getting a discount so it was ok. I didn't use it on my next purchase and the wonderful product got to my house fine. I think it is up to the vendor selling a product to guarantee the delivery, not put it on the purchaser.
