Containment and uncertainty by generating stress alters the quality of the skin. It weakens, becomes more sensitive to inflammation, produces more sebum and becomes dehydrated.
It's no secret that our morale and stress levels affect the skin. Stress changes hormonal secretions, slows cell renewal and collagen production.
For acne-prone or atopic skin, stress is an aggravating factor: it causes inflammatory flares, breakouts of pimples, blackheads or patches of dryness.
The more chronic the stress, the more the skin microbiome is disturbed. The cause is an increase in the level of cortisol, an excess of sebum which oxidizes and promotes the proliferation of certain microorganisms and a reduced barrier function.
During this period of confinement, it is inevitable that atopic skin will suffer more and experience breakouts of acne, eczema, seborrheic dermatitis and even psioriasis.
1 - Relax to protect your skin
To regain beautiful skin, you have to lower the pressure! For this some rules of hygiene of life are essential:
- Sleep at least 7 hours per night. Sleep is one of the beauty secrets.
- Play sports in the morning or early afternoon. Sporting activity allows you to relax but also to eliminate toxins and get tired! Without good fatigue, it is impossible to have real nights.
- Decrease the time spent in front of screens. Of course, it's not easy when you're stuck at home. But blue light creates nervous excitement, and the avalanche of bad news makes anxiety worse.
- Finally, avoid stimulants: alcohol, tobacco, coffee or cigarettes
