Today is World Mental Health Day - a good reminder to take care of our mental health indeed, but did you know that your mental health can directly impact your skin health?
Our skin is the largest organ in our bodies, and the way it’s looking directly relates to our overall health, including our mental health. There are plenty of easy ways one can look after their skin, taking care of how we feel being just one of them.
Starting with simply drinking plenty of water, and incorporating at least 5 fruit and vegetables each day into our diet. Using active skincare with ingredients specifically designed for your skin type, consuming minimal alcohol and quitting smoking are also simple but highly effective ways to treat our skin with care.
In our recent post ‘Restore your skin barrier function’, we talked about how stress affects your skin and “how emotions such as anger and sadness can influence the skin in different ways. This is because, when we feel stressed or anxious, the body produces higher levels of the hormone cortisol which can have negative effects on the skin, as highlighted in another recent article ‘’ by WOW facial practitioner . A proven way to combat both stress and anxiety is by practising meditation and breathwork in your daily routine.
