Stress en je huid

Met alle onzekerheid en negatieve berichten in de media omtrent het coronavirus ondervinden wij allen ontzettend veel stress. In deze blog willen wij u informeren over de gevolgen van stress op je huid. Met daarbij natuurlijk tips om meer te ontspannen en je huid optimaal te voeden.

Wat doet stress met je huid?

Ergens in je achterhoofd weet je het natuurlijk al: stress is heel slecht voor ons lichaam, ook voor onze huid. Stress uit zich vaak snel in de huid, op verschillende manier: vlekken, droge, jeukende, vermoeide, onrustige huid en acné. Daarnaast heeft het ook effecten op je hele lichaam, zoals onrustig slapen en gewichtstoename. Tot slot kan het al bestaande huidproblemen zoals eczeem, psoriasis en acne, verergeren.

Hoe komt dat nu eigenlijk? Peter Elias, professor dermatologie, is er tijdens zijn onderzoek achter gekomen dat door een hogere productie van het stresshormoon, onze barrièrefunctie in onze huid wordt aangetast. Daarnaast werken onze “gezonde” cellen langzamer waardoor bacteriën minder snel en effectief aangepakt worden. We zijn daardoor vatbaarder voor invloeden van buitenaf.

Huidveroudering

Stress veroudert je huid sneller. Door stress hebben vrije radicalen grotere invloed op je cellen. Doordat je cellen minder goed werken, ga je eerder tekenen van veroudering zien. Denk hierbij aan huidverslapping en rimpels.

Acne

Zoals eerder gezegd, heeft stress invloed op de barrière functie van de huid waardoor je vatbaarder bent voor bacteriën. Bij hormoonstijging produceert je lichaam meer talg waardoor je poriën verstopt raken. Daarnaast zijn we minder goed beschermt, waardoor bacteriën in je verstopte poriën gaan zitten. Het gevolg zijn bacteriële infecties, die helaas kunnen zorgen voor acné en littekens.

Pigmentatie

Bij stress maakt je lichaam ook meer adrenaline aan, deze stimuleert ook je pigmentcellen. Onderhuidse pigment kan dan naar voren komen en zich uiten op de huid.

Droge en doffe huid

Ook hier speelt de verminderde weerstand van de huid een rol. Er verschijnen sneller irritaties op de huid zoals roodheden, eczeem of vlekken. Daarnaast biedt je huid minder weerstand tegen eczeem en psoriasis, waardoor deze kunnen verergeren.

Door een vertraagde celvernieuwing wordt je huid dof en droog. Oude huid wordt minder snel afgestoten en nieuwe cellen worden minder snel geproduceerd. Dit kan je zien over het gehele lichaam.

Wat te doen?

Natuurlijk is het meest effectieve antwoord: stress voorkomen. Maar zoals we allemaal weten, is dit helaas niet altijd mogelijk. Maar hoe kan je de effecten van stress dan wel verminderen?

Voedingssupplementen

Neem gezonde voedingssupplementen in die je lichaam helpen de weerstand op te bouwen van binnenuit. Laviesage Nutricosmetics heeft voedingssupplementen met het Biokeurmerk die de juiste bouwstoffen, vitamines, mineralen en essentiële vetten bevatten voor het beschermen, voeden en verbeteren van de huid. Ze ondersteunen het lichaam bij het onderhoud en de aanmaak van nieuw bindweefsel, collageen en elastine en zorgen voor een mooie, gezonde en stralende huid.

Masking

Daarnaast is het raadzaam om de huid wat extra te verwennen met een maskertje of scrub om dode huidcellen te verwijderen. De maskers en scrubs van Image Skincare zijn multifunctioneel en bevatten de hoogste niveaus van actieve ingrediënten.

Tot slot. Ontspan, mediteer, pak een nieuwe bezigheid op, ga wandelen of doe yoga. Hier vindt u een link met een gesproken meditatie om even lekker te ontspannen. 

Masking

Masking. Some of us like it, some of us don’t. But should everyone use a facemask? Yes, absolutely yes. At Body Care Caribbean we love to take care of your skin. We give you the best skinadvice to make all your skinwishes come true.

Facemasks are the perfect way to treat skincare concerns. Important is that you have the right mask, perfect for your skin type. A facemask can help you hydrate your skin but it also removes dead skin cells and excess oil so that your pores will be cleaned up. You skin will get an even skin tone, less impurities and more glow. After one single use you will already feel the difference!

So, if you don’t have a mask in your skincare routine: run to Body Care Caribbean to get one. It’s a must-have for those who really want to work on their skin. It’s a weekly ritual and yes, it takes a little bit of your time. But I think it’s totally worth it! If you have some serious skin concerns, we recommend you to use a facemask more often. At Body Care Caribbean we have a lot of different facemask, for every skintype. And don’t forget! Both men and women can benefit significantly from using a mask.

 

So why… Why should you free some time in your agenda to do a facemask?

Relax and sit back.

We all have a busy life. And masking needs 5-20 minutes of your precious time. Instead of thinking: ohhhh, pff. How long do I need to wait??? You can think: ok. Let’s have 20 minutes in heaven. Put on your facemask, grab your magazine and a cup of tea (or go crazy and nip some wine) and sit back and take these 20 minutes for an ultimate relax moment. Just you and your facemask against the world.

Deep cleansing.

All masks will cleanse your face. Especially when you have an oily and/or acne skin, deep cleansing is really important. A lot of skin concerns are caused by clogged pores, because of an accumulation of dead skin cells or old make-up that’s left behind. Every day cleansing is not enough to get to the bottom of your pores. A weekly deep cleansing mask will definitely help your skin to breathe and it will increase the absorption of the ingredients from your products.

We have different facemasks which cleanse your face in different ways. Some of them contains salicylic acid and/or glycolic acid, these acids will exfoliate your skin by dissolving dead skin cells and absorb excess sebum to leave your pores clean. Others contain clay or natural based ingredients to deep clean your pores and leave your skin soft and calm

Healthy. glowing skin.

All our masks will leave your skin healthy and glowing. Due to stress and environment damaged, our skin can look dull, gray and tired. There’s a lack of energy and color in our face and we look older than ever. A facemask can definitely help you with that. Using a mask with hyaluronic acid, vitamins and/or minerals can do wonders for your skin.

Masking helps your overall regimen.

As I already said: masking will help you absorb other products better. Your other skin care products will be more efficiently because your skin is clean and your pores are open. Your moisturizer, serum and repair cream will go deeper into your skin. Also by weekly masking, your skin tone will be more even, the hydration of your skin will get better which all results in a younger looking skin.
