What is "stressed skin"?

Ever looked in the mirror and wondered why your skin looks tired and lifeless? Or perhaps you’ve experienced sudden breakouts, redness, or dry patches without any reason?

What does it mean?

Stressed skin means that the skin is imbalanced or irritated. It can be caused by using products that are too strong, too much sun exposure, but also emotional stress. When you become stressed, the release of cortisol, a hormone, can disrupt the skin's function and worsen existing skin problems. If you have skin conditions such as rosacea or eczema, stress can exacerbate these conditions and may also lead to the development of new ones such as acne.


6 signs of stressed skin:


  1. Redness and Irritation: Your skin may become red, inflamed, and sensitive to touch.



  2. Dryness and Dehydration: Stressed skin often lacks moisture, leading to dryness, flakiness, and a tight feeling.



  3. Breakouts and Acne: Stress can trigger the production of excess sebum, leading to clogged pores and acne.



  4. Dullness and Fatigue: The skin can appear tired, lackluster, and dull due to a decrease in circulation and nutrient delivery.



  5. Fine Lines and Wrinkles: Chronic stress can accelerate the aging process, resulting in premature fine lines and wrinkles.



  6. Increased Sensitivity: Stressed skin can become more reactive and prone to sensitivities, making it difficult to tolerate certain skincare products or environmental conditions.




How to Soothe Stressed Skin:


  • Calming Ingredients: Look for ingredients like aloe vera, cucumber, and hyaluronic acid that soothe and reduce inflammation. You find them all in our Calming Eye Gels.



  • Hydration: Use gentle, hydrating products to replenish moisture and support the skin barrier. The Hydrogel Mask is a real hydration hero.



  • Simplify Your Routine: Overuse of skincare products can cause more harm than good. Minimize the number of products in your skincare routine to avoid developing any sensitivity.



  • Protection: Use sunscreen to shield your skin from harmful UV rays and protect it from environmental stressors.



  • Healthy Lifestyle: How you feel on the inside can affect your skin a lot. Don't underestimate the importance of a balanced diet, enough sleep, and not stress too much.




Keep calm and patch on! 💚
