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.

YEEESSSSS

I'm honestly a little sad because I want to order /everything!/ Lol I ordered this at the perfect time. The pine tar soap cleared up the little whiteheads I'd get in the areas under my mouth. They've shrunk so much. I felt so naked when my little soap ran out! It's crazy how you can really feel that this is an all natural soap. Even if the soap you'd normally use on your face isn't stripping, it's just such a nice feeling to NOT get that chemical feel on your skin when you wash your face. The smell is divine. With any other facial cleanser, I'd still have somehow have dirt on my face the next morning. Not with the pine tar soap! :) I wake up and my skin still feels and is sooo clean. Donata is right, older scars/acne marks will of course take longer to fade. They are still slowly fading though, and the more recent ones I have are fading quicker. It is amazing!!!! I just ordered a full sized soap and another scar butter. <3 I hope to try one of the blended soaps and scrubs soon :) I've yet to try any products on my back acne and booty acne, but the changes on my face have been beautiful <3

Love that sea Moss

The sea moss was packaged nice and the quality is awesome I’m enjoying making my own gel and i thank the owner for having a company that supplies great high quality products I do believe in her commitment to excellence. Thank you Beautiful!
