KEEP IT STRESS FREE
In today’s world, life has become very hectic and we’re always running to complete our tasks within the prescribed time. We mostly are under pressure and the exact feeling of being under pressure is called ‘Stress.’ Stress affects each person in a different way. Some people are able to perform better when stressed while others suffer from sleepless nights, skin and hair problems, fears and many other problems.
Let’s see what the effects of stress on skin and hair are:
Since our skin and mind are deeply connected; the moment stress hormones are released, the oil production of the skin increases and leads to acne breakouts.
Rashes and skin irritation
Some people get rashes on their skin when they are stressed. Skin irritants are able to attack your skin easily, since blood is channeled away from the skin and the skin doesn’t get enough oxygen.
It is pretty easy to identify people who are stressed because the signs of aging such as wrinkles and dark circles start to show on their face much earlier than they should.
Due to stress, our blood vessels get constricted and the hair follicles are unable to get the required quantity of oxygen and other nutrients, which are necessary for hair growth. Lack of nutrients often leads to hair loss for various people who are stressed.
Simple remedies to overcome stress
Say goodbye to stress and try to derive some joy and contentment. Life is beautiful and you get to live it only once. Here are some of the best ways to reduce stress:
Get a nice massage. It will help to relax your body and open all the blocked energy channels.
Exercise for some time. It motivates you and lifts your mood. It helps to energise you and is the key to a healthy body.
Meditate for at least 15-20 minutes per day. You can do it anytime, any place at your convenience. Sitting in peace can help you to focus your thoughts and help release stress.
Eat small frequent meals and eat healthy food. Junk food is also a cause of stress. Some foods that are really good for busting stress include almonds, blueberries and salmon. Include these in your diet.
Sleep for at least 8 hours during the night. Lack of sleep makes a person cranky and irritable. Nothing can beat a good night’s sleep in releasing stress.
Do not let stress take over your life. Take charge and live your life to the fullest!
